  • An expert claimed the UFO was an alien mothership
  • The UFO was flying towards an Air Force base known for alien activity

A video taken by an eyewitness revealed a massive UFO hovering over a mountain range in Nevada. According to a UFO expert, the mysterious vessel was spotted near Area 51 and another controversial Air Force base in the region.

The video was shared on YouTube by the channel UFOs and Aliens Santana. As indicated in the video’s description, it was taken on Jan. 29 near the border between California and Nevada.

The eyewitness who took the video was riding in a car that was traveling across the Extraterrestrial Highway, a popular stretch of road in Nevada.

The incredible video, which is less than 30 seconds long, shows a massive disc-shaped UFO flying over a mountain range. It was clear enough to see the UFO’s overall shape and its central circular feature.

According to Scott Waring of ET Data Base, the massive UFO, which he believes measures about a kilometer long, was spotted near controversial facilities in Nevada. One of these is Area 51, which has been the center of numerous conspiracy theories.

Aside from Area 51, Waring noted that the strange UFO was also spotted near another facility known as the Nellis Air Force Base (AFB). Like Area 51, Nellis AFB is also popular among conspiracy theorists due to the stories surrounding it.

Previous eyewitness reports claimed that strange alien creatures, many of which were referred to as tall white aliens due to their appearance, were found roaming near the base. Others claimed that the military personnel overseeing Nellis AFB directly interacted with the extraterrestrials to learn more about alien technology.  

Waring speculated that the mysterious object featured in the video is an alien mothership that was heading to Nellis AFB. The UFO expert that the video proves that Nevada is still a hotbed for extraterrestrial activity.

“This UFO is about 1km across using the mountains to determine its size,” Waring wrote in a blog post. “That’s a mothership...and it's following the mountain range...and guess what? The mountain range leads directly to behind Nellis AFB...the Tall White location. This is 100% proof that alien activity is still happening in Nevada.”
