Onlookers saw more than just the typical stars in the night sky over Jerusalem on January 28, 2011. The glowing orb was caught on film and was found hovering over the skyline. Needless to say UFO experts are dumbfounded and believe this is final proof that aliens actually do exist.
Eyewitness reports claim the circular object was seen descending slowly over the holy city’s iconic Dome of the Rock before flickering and shooting skyward like a rocket. Similar clips have been seen in the past and easily debunked as hoaxes. But this latest sighting has proved more difficult to dismiss — as it was recorded from four different perspectives.
Adding to the mystery is the fact that flying over the Dome of the Rock landmark — an ancient Islamic shrine — is forbidden.
Two witnesses at the Armon Hanatziv panoramic lookout near Mount Zion filmed the object at 1am on Saturday. A little after one minute into the clip, the object descends slowly, almost to ground level. The craft then hovers there for a short while and then flickers before shooting upwards at an incredible speed.
Former Ministry of Defense UFO investigator Nick Pope shared his thoughts on the matter. He said, “If these are real, they are some of the most incredible videos ever shot. If they are not, then this is a very well-planned and coordinated hoax designed to eliminate elements of doubt. The way it shoots up into the sky suggests it is unmanned, because no living thing could survive those kinds of G-forces. We know the Israeli army has some very high-tech drones at its disposal. If this is one, it is one of the most advanced pieces of technology created by man.”
Even so, the skeptics are already actively working to debunk this latest sighting. Two other clips filmed from different viewpoints were posted online, and skeptics have noted the views come from perspectives that could make nearby objects seem farther away and faster-moving. Others say the whole thing was staged and have prepared several alternative versions of the videos which they say prove they are not real.
Some have shown stabilized versions in which the brightness and contrast have been increased, which they claim highlights a major flaw of perspective.
Another is motion-tracked, and apparently shows the UFO “bouncing around like crazy” — which, according to skeptics, shows the makers had trouble inserting it into the scene.
Now, whether we’re looking at an alien spacecraft or top-secret government technology remains to be seen. However, with videos from four different perspectives it’s hard to dispute that something “unfamiliar” to us was definitely recorded by more than one eye witness.
There’s one thing for certain – the truth definitely is out there.
