Description: Hi there. I was filming a massive electrical storm on Tuesday 11th August at 10.33 PM out of my bedroom window and at about 19 seconds into it a craft of some type comes into view from the left hand side and flies across the screen at about a 30 degree angle in a straight line. Then the craft changes to a steeper angle and accelerates off faster and went off screen, but I saw it actually go straight up into the clouds and disappear from sight. It took less than 1.40 seconds to go from almost left to right. Like I say I caught it on video and this is definitely not a bug or bird because I took screen grabs from the video and enlarged the photos. The craft appears to be long rocket type shape, but made in 3 sections, kind of like 3 balls stuck together, smaller at the front and bigger at the back. On each section it has a glowing light in the middle, which after editing appears to be a bluish/green light and is intense and shimmers even in a photograph. I’m not sure what this craft is, but it flew straight up in a huge electrical storm which is not normal. I have attached the video and photos. I also took some enlargements and some slow motion videos from the original. If you crop the craft and edit the image yourself you will see what I did. All the editing I did was lower the brightness and raise the contrast, plus tweaking the white balance to get truer colors back. I haven’t added anything to the images. I just pulled out details using Lightroom and Photoshop. Each grab comes out slightly different depending on the section of video. Also I have noticed that at one point it only shows as a slim disc of light then it heads up from the left and then you can then clearly see the 3 sections of the craft. It seems like it changed or was cloaking until it really started to climb and accelerate. One photo is of the same view in daylight with several overlays from the video to give an idea of the flight path. If anyone can help, send me an email, I would like to find out what this maybe. It looks like a real UFO and the weather went crazy as it arrived and left. What else could it be? No normal craft would fly straight into a storm like that and those lights are strange to say the least It must have covered 20 miles or so in a flash.
Note: The witness extracted images from the video and performed various enhancements to better illustrate the craft. He also displayed part of the video in slow motion. In the original video the object streaked across the sky in a few seconds.
Given that a thunderstorm was occurring there is a chance that the object could be ball lightning, but this is speculation. Ball lightning can behave strangely and it is not completely understood.
It is probably an insect of some sort being illuminated by foreground lighting.
Hello Mr. Puckett. This could be some kind of computer generated image, but I’m thinking this is something really moving through a night storm and what are the chances that this witness caught this on camera, right?! The three sectioned areas are obvious, but about two seconds before this image moves away, I can see something looking like a vague white object that appears to separated from the left end of the rectangle and drops away, but this could be some sort of video artifact as well, but it’s noticeable to me! Thanks for posting this.
Yes, it is strange. I thought possibly that it could be ball lightning, but that is not likely.
