Numerous reports of UFO sightings surfced in 2017, leaving everyone baffled. They even led to the formulation of various conspiracy theories.
These are the popular instances that received coverage from mainstream media:
1. UFO sighting in Denver
An apparent UFO sighting took place in Denver earlier this year, thanks to footage captured by a metro-area man who preferred keeping his identity a secret. The man used his digital camera to capture the images and footage of the UFO from a hilltop in Federal Heights, Colorado. The UFO was spotted by the man around 1 pm a few times every week.
The sighting left even aviation expert Steve Cowell mystified: He couldn't figure out what exactly the object was. The footage shows the object hovering in the skies over Denver at such a fast pace that it becomes impossible for naked eyes to spot it in real time: It can only be seen in a time-lapse video.
News channel CNN wanted to verify the authenticity of the video and this incident. It placed its own camera in the same region around noon and ended up capturing the mysterious object in the video.
2. Strange things captured by trailer camera in Missouri's Jackson County
In another incident took place at Jackson County in US. The trail camera of the residence was installed to check deer roaming in the area. The footage shows a deer at 7:24 pm, a mysterious dim light appears out of nowhere at 7:29 pm and becomes more radiant at 7:35.
A weird shape appears on the camera at 7:53 pm and the brightness can be seen increasing. The reason behind the mysterious light remains unknown. The cameras do not emit any light as they are infrared.
These strange happenings continue. A brighter light appears at 7:56 pm and a headlight-like structure appears in the middle of the air, seemingly observing the deer. What do you think about this eerie occurrence?
