Authorities in several countries were alerted following sightings of a strange swirling object in the sky.

Reports came in from Georgia, Armenia, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and other countries in the region, observers described the spectacle as a swirling, shining object that gave off a smoke trail. While rumors have persisted that the object was some sort of missile test there have been no confirmations of operations being carried out in the area at that time.

"A spaceship flying over Israel? A satellite or a Russian ballistic missile? An unidentified flying object observed in Middle East countries Thursday night has caused panic, with people calling the police to say they witnessed a UFO."

I have been saying all along, they (the russians) are lying and all nations in the region have agreed to go along so as to cover it up whatever "it" is. anyway, that is why I call them all the Russian Missile Conspiracy Theorists... because THAT is what they are. conspiring to theorize an imaginary russian missile that took off from FOUR locations, no less, all according to kewl russian official sources I've never seen anything but ONE location announced -- half an hour after launch -- and that was Kapustin Yar. Any number of instant guesses by newspapers don't carry any weight. I've asked you... [More]

Different lighting conditions...? Oh really? since when were "lighting conditions" all the way to Israel in the June event ever discussed in here? NEV-ah. Um,... It was brought up multiple times when we were talking about local sunsets and the shadow of the Earth at that time of year. Guess you didn't remember.

Anybody find any more press or blog reports on a new Israeli UFO sighting as described on 'ATS' above? I can't find anything, or any recent youtube video or on 'rutube.ru', the Russian equivalent. Is it all just a belated re-echo of the original June event?

Is it all just a belated re-echo of the original June event? Sounds like it to me. Even Dr. Yigal is mentioned. Unless maybe he's the 'go to' guy over there.
