Debunking the black UFO claim observing the Cygnus Antares NG-11 rocket launch. A joined investigation with public affairs specialist at NASA’s Wallops flight facility and NASA’s test director.


April 17, 4:46 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time). Wallops Island, Virginia.

A Northrop Grumman Antares rocket carrying the Cygnus NG-11 cargo ship launches from Pad-0A.

Carrying tons of NASA supplies and 40 intrepid mice to the international space station.
Researchers have been observing mice in space since 2014 to better understand the effect of long-term space missions on astronauts.

Younger mice show playful behavior. They run in circles called race tracking.


April 18, 2019, The Hidden Underbelly 2.0 claims a black UFO was observing the launch on YouTube. Because a black flying object is visible in the background just before the launch.

Based on the publication history of this YouTube channel, Lions Ground learns that this is a channel that doesn’t take facts seriously, mainly a hoax promoter.

What’s a hoax promoter?

A hoax promoter is someone who encourage misinformation, disinformation, or hoax content as real and are allies with hoaxers.


After conducting thorough investigation, Lions Ground was not satisfied with the result. A cable marker is not an option. Based on the behavior of the object, Lions Ground suspects that we should look for something in the direction of a drone and a balloon.

April 23, 2019, Debunking consists of facts, not guesswork. Lions Ground reach out to NASA to seek help with the investigation.

The video material offers no evidence to identify the object.

Lions Ground broke the story …

Keith Koehler of Public Affairs Specialist at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility and a Test Director assisted Lions Ground fast and they were very helpful.

Koehler told Lions Ground: “The UFO is a Tethered aerostat. They fly these crafts on day launches to alert mariners that they have launch operations … For the Antares missions it’s raised about 8 hours before launch. For night missions we use a beacon to alert mariners.”
The UFO is a Tethered aerostat.

“If you look at the video you can see that it is drifting in the wind,” Koehler of Public Affairs Specialist at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility continued.
