    Explained: Large Cigar Shaped Object Caught Shooting Into Storm Cloud In Spain [Reflection]

    A video of a lightning storm shared on Facebook appears to show a large white object flying into a cloud, which then lights up, like from an explosion. However if we flip the bottom half of the image, we can see that the "object" is exactly opposite the bright side-light of the passing car...

    Explained: UFO CAPTURED In Airplane above the clouds! WHAT IS THIS? [Air France 747]

    Greenwood Crown Flash

    This thread might not be so much about debunking the video, as internet already seems to have pinpointed the phenomenon as a rare weather phenomenon called crown flash. The effect looks very cool, but I find very little information about the phenomenon. Perhaps because it is so rare and hard...

    Debunked: UFO over Loch Ness [Reflection in Dual Pane Window]

    A recent photo proports to show a UFO over Loch Ness in Scotland, however it's almost certainly just the reflection of a light inside the room, doubled up by dual pane window. UPDATE July 10, 2015: I contacted the owner of the cottage, who graciously agreed to take a few photos and a short...

    UFO's in Mick's video [Sunlit, out of focus Insects]

    I was watching a youtube video posted by Mick when I noticed some ufo's on the video. One appears at 1:26. Two others appear at 1:40. I was curious to know whether Mick or anyone else knows what they are. I have easily recorded and analyze over a 100 video's of the sky before and have never...

    Identified: UFO over Scotland, 2015. [Venus]

    I believe that this video is another case of Venus being misinterpreted? I've had a look at Stellarium for 1st February, 2015 and it matches for Venus setting. Flight Radar 24 shows one aircraft heading over the region but that would have passed over during the period of filming. Rough geo for...

    Update by @Mick West: The video shows the moon rising over the horizon. It initially looks a bit of an odd shape due to atmospheric distortion. But there are many similar videos showing the same thing, like this one. The following comparison simply crops the region of the frame where the moon is...

    Report in my local rag today of "mystery objects in the sky". Here's a screen shot with the faint lights arrowed by me. You can see a very short video of the sighting HERE (scroll down the page to about half-way) My first thoughts are these might possibly be some sort of electrical...

    Solved: Portsmouth UK, "Alien Flight Path" UFO Contrail [Private Jet + Perspective]

    A supposedly unusual contrail turns out to just be a business jet making a slight course correction. This seems much more dramatic than it actually was, because of the forced perspective. http://www.express.co.uk/news/weird/514401/Second-Portsmouth-UFO-Sighting-Contrail-Alien-Flight-Path...
