Baby Monitor Monitors International Space Station Rather Than Baby

A new mom in Palatine, IL turned her baby monitor on and, rather than her baby, she saw two men floating in space. She was viewing images of astronauts in the international space station. She also saw mission control and a map of the station’s trajectory.

The mom called the manufacturer to ask if they knew why she was viewing the space station. They didn’t. According to the mom, the CSR at the baby monitor company told her that she “really shouldn’t be seeing anything past 150 feet.”

Creepy. Sounds like the beginning of a Steven Spielberg movie back when his movies were still good.—MEGHANN MARCO
