It looks like something on fire, like a fire balloon...
Footage showing mysterious “fireballs” floating in the sky during a thunderstorm in Buffalo, New York, has sparked a debate between UFO believers and non-believers.
According to UFO hunters, the strange “burning” aerial objects were alien crafts observing thunderstorm phenomenon in Earth’s atmosphere and possibly harvesting energy from the lightning. But non-believers and skeptics dismissed the UFO speculation as absurd, insisting that the weird-looking “fireballs” were more likely rare “ball lightning” phenomena.
Eerie footage showing strange “fiery” objects flying across the night sky and disappearing mysteriously as thunderstorm raged was first uploaded online on June 22, 2016 by a French-language YouTube channel, Ovnipresent.
A copy of the footage, sent to UFO hunters Secureteam10, and uploaded online on June 23, 2016, has gone viral with more than 100,000 views.
According to Secureteam10 narrator Tyler Glockner, in the video titled, “They are Back! ‘Fire Ship’ UFOs Seen On Earth And From Space,” the footage shows a fleet of mysterious “burning” UFOs floating across the night sky during a storm in Buffalo in Erie County, Western New York.
The amazed woman filming the “burning” aerial objects, identified as Patricia, can be heard commenting on the strange sights. She wonders aloud what the objects could be and then asks for her partner’s opinion.
“It just came out of nowhere, honey,” Patricia says in awe.
“What is that? It looks like something on fire, like a fire balloon,” she continues. “See how it stops and then speeds up; do you see the pattern?”
She wonders aloud whether the objects were on fire.
“It’s the storm, there’s something pulling them out in the storm,” she suggests after filming the strange objects for some time.
