Has extraterrestrial life finally made contact with humanity? Not really, but being on the International Space Station (ISS), you can see two mysterious pairs of "eyes". What's it?

"Progress MS-18 has successfully undocked and departed," Russian cosmonaut Sergei Korsakov tweeted after the Russian cargo ship left the space station and headed home. "But who are these stowaways watching us?"

Someone on Twitter jokingly suggested that it was R2D2 from the famous science fiction movie "Star Wars", but there were other, no less interesting options.

Korsakov shared a close-up of the audience with beady eyes, which, of course, are only components of the exterior of the cargo ship.

The ship replenished ISS supplies, including fuel, research equipment, oxygen, water and food, but this is not its only task. The automatic spacecraft is also used to correct the ISS orbit to avoid collisions with space debris.

The Progress 79 spacecraft docked to the ISS removed 1.3 tons of garbage, equipment with expired service life, cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev told TASS. The job is done, it burned up in the Earth's atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean.
