KEY POINTS

  • A UFO was spotted flying over Utah
  • Video of the UFO was captured by a professional pilot
  • The UFO did not have visible means of propulsion

A professional pilot was able to capture a UFO flying under his airplane. The video of the incident shows the strange object flying across the sky without any visible means of propulsion.

The video recorded by the pilot was shared on YouTube by the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON). According to the site, the incident happened in September last year as the pilot was flying over Utah.

At an altitude of about 40,000 feet, the pilot spotted a shiny object flying just below his aircraft. Based on the video recorded by the pilot, the strange object appeared to have a highly-reflective surface and an elongated body. Interestingly, the object glided across the sky without showing any visible means of propulsion.

“A professional pilot filed a report which contains clear video of an unidentified object flying in close formation below his aircraft,” MUFON said in a statement. “The video was recorded while flying at approximately 40,000 feet over Utah in September of 2019.”

According to the site, an investigation regarding the exact nature of the object is still ongoing. MUFON has labeled the incident as a “case of interest.” As explained by MUFON, these kinds of cases have significant circumstances associated with them.

After viewing the clip, Scott Waring of ET Data Base noted that the UFO captured on video by the pilot is very different from other similar sightings. In addition to having a distinct color and shape, Waring said that the object moved strangely in the video.

Instead of moving in zigzagging patterns and making sharp turns, the strange object glided smoothly in the sky. Also, based on the video, it seems the UFO was not bothered by the presence of the aircraft flying on top of it.

“This is great raw footage of an actual UFO. Most UFOs appear white and orb shaped...but this disk is unique,” Waring wrote in a blog post. “This is an important video because not only does it tell us the size, shape and color of the object, but it tells us how smoothly and easily this craft moves through the sky.”
