Lightning strikes UFO in New Year's Eve video


Posted on Saturday, 9 January, 2016 | Comment icon 16 comments

Footage recorded at the beginning of the year seems to show lightning hitting a glowing orb in the sky.
The video was filmed by student Marie Mela in the Mostviertel area of Lower Austria where she, along with a group of her friends and colleagues, had been celebrating New Year.

A few seconds in to the recording Mela pans the camera up in to the sky to record a firework, but after the rocket explodes a strange blue orb-like object can be seen hovering in the air.

A second later a sudden lightning strike hits the object, causing it to start glowing.

The video has proven quite popular since appearing online however reactions to it have been mixed with critics arguing that the footage could have very easily been hoaxed.

A local weather expert has also confirmed that there had been no lightning in the area at the time.

Real or Fake? Who knows anymore... But the couple that continues to dance and is unaffected by the entire lighting/thunder going on kinda baffles me, unless they're drunk as ****. When you're a certain age, a dance partner can be very distracting.

That is 100% fake, it looks like a viral marketing video.

It is photoshop. The lightening bolt is partially blocked when the orb is photoshopped into the fireworks video. Nice try.

Whether it's doctored or not, ................. St. Elmo's fire? Ball lighting? And whether lighting was not reported, what if it was just one strike. Can that be recorded?
