      I don't think he claims to have the video, just the still. From his podcast: https://www.weaponizedpodcast.com/ Corbell: Yeah, this is an image taken over northern Iraq. And you know, this is fine to put out the image itself, and then I have...

      I'm not convinced it's a sphere (hence "sphere" now in quotes in the thread title). Nor am I convinced it's particulalry shiny. The camera is saturated white on the white roof and the streetlamp. And the highlight on the object is not circular...

      And yet even stranger things are true as regards ISIS. The Kurdish Peshmerga forces battling against the ISIS in northern Iraq caught a rather unusual sight of a bunch of helium filled balloons featuring children's favourite animated character...

      Mick West posted the thread Mosul "Sphere" in UFOs and Aliens.
      The image, captured in April 2016 by an intelligence-reconnaissance plane, was included in a classified briefing video on UFOs shown to multiple US government agencies. The briefing video describes it as a 'short clip of an unidentified flying...

      He posted a long exposure: And I did a "log exposure" of the Starlinks in Stellarium (Grey = theoretical sunlit portion, not the glares) That's not matching the time, but, it's a pretty good match for the two directions.

      Although this is a "wrong" assumption it is understandable because these flares are moving and flaring unlike any other satellites he has seen to date. It is equally understandable when pilots make the same error.

      Or, as in UFOlogy, things that are just in the Low Information Zone, the LIZ. Not enough data to actually make a determination, but enough for the more hopeful to see things that are probably not really there. Perhaps fiddly, expensive, and...

      Hi Everyone, Thought I'd join as someone who bought into the JFK stuff for a short time as a teen in the 80s and then after working with Structural Steel in the 90s and early 2000s I thought I could shed some light early on to the 9/11 folks only...

      At El Meson Sandwiches (Borinquen). Looks like they are flying to the SW. Did you look up the wind on that day? Great illustration.

      Hiya, I'm John J., I've been interested in 'the paranormal' for as long as I remember- loved (and was sometimes frightened by) my Usborne "World of the Unknown" illustrated books- "Ghosts", "UFOs" and "Monsters"- as a child...
