From a UFO caught on the BBC News to a flying object dropping glowing orbs down on Earth, join us as we take a look at 10 UFO sightings caught on camera.
9. St Louis Lights
On 2nd of August, 2016 the Malcom W Martin Memorial Park Facebook page uploaded this clip. It’s taken from a security camera over looking the Mississippi River and Gateway Arch in St Louis, U.S. The footage shows a glowing ball hovering in the sky for around five minutes. It moves about the sky erratically, disappears then reappears in different spots. One local tried explaining the footage as head lights from cars parking in the Mississippi River Overlook. What do you think? Headlights or visitors from outer space?
8. UFO Over Los Angeles
In November, 2015 numerous Californian residents saw some very strange lights in the night sky. People from Reno to Los Angeles spotted a blue light flaring across the horizon. Several different pieces of footage were uploaded, each capturing the same strange blue light. Dozens of calls flooded into 911 reporting the unidentified flying object.
The following morning the U.S. Navy issued a statement that they had been testing a ballistic missile off the coast of California.
It seems awfully convenient for the Navy to issue a statement like that. Would they really fire missiles near a heavily populated coastline, completely unannounced, terrifying hundreds of residents? Hmmmm, bit strange.
7. UFO Over Poland
There’s very little info on this piece of footage. It’s supposedly taken by a couple as they flew over Poland in a commercial airliner. What their camera captured is very unusual. It appears to be a massive floating object drifting by the aeroplane. If anyone has any information on this clip or can translate what the couple is saying, please leave a comment below.
6. UFO Fleet, Mexico
On January 8, 2005 a man captured what appears to be a fleet of UFO’s hovering over an unknown part of Mexico. There are 40 to 50 glowing orbs floating in the sky. Many claim the sighting to be balloons or Chinese lanterns but when the footage zooms in it looks at though the objects are steering themselves around each other.
5. UFO Melbourne, Australia
This footage was taken in July, 2016 during a flyover of the city of Melbourne, Australia. In the background there is a strange floating shape on the right side of the city. It’s a thin structure hovering in mid-air. What do you think that is? Hovering spacecraft or a glitch in the film?
4. Dropping Orbs, Phillipines
This startling footage was taken in an unknown part of the Philippines in 2014. At first it’s difficult to tell what’s happening as the footage only shows two glowing objects on a dark background but you can see smaller orb like objects falling to the ground. A night vision lens is used to clarify the image and what it captures is very striking. It’s clear that this UFO is dropping numerous balls of light down on the ground. Are there any plausible explanations for this footage?
3. Hong Kong Protest UFO
In October, 2014 the BBC was reporting on pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, what they inadvertently captured on film is startling. You can see above the sea of protesters, between the two buildings, a flying object moves towards the right of camera. It pauses for moment, then flies straight up at an accelerated rate.
It’s very hard to explain this footage as the BBC captured it live, making it impossible for anyone to tamper with or alter it in any way.
2. Mexico City UFO, 1997
This piece of footage caused quite a stir amongst both the scientific and conspiracy theory communities. Taken on August 6th, 1997, this hefty flying object was filmed flying over Mexico City. The community has divided almost in half on whether the footage is real or fake. Some say there are dubious digital artifacts hidden in the still frames of the clip, others have noted that back in 1997 there were no programs available to the public powerful enough to fake this footage. Other perplexing evidence is the 12 or so witnesses from across the city that reported seeing the craft flying through the air.
What do you think? Real or fake? If you’ve got any information on this clip, leave a comment below.
1. Tucson Lights
On July 4th, 2016 a strange light was seen hovering in the night sky over Tucson, Arizona. You can see a large white orb that blinks on and off sporadically. At the 1:20 mark, a second object appears then flashes brightly before disappearing.
Many skeptics have noted that July 4th is a common night for firework displays. But what do you think? Does this look like ordinary fireworks?
