UFO filmed from airline during US flight

Mauricio Ruiz managed to record an anomalous object from his window during a flight to Chicago.

The footage shows the object to be a white cluster of lights hovering a short distance from the plane during an otherwise routine flight from New York to Chicago. Since appearing on Youtube the video has succeeded in generating a significant amount of interest with viewers attempting to determine what it could be.

While some have subscribed to the idea that the video is a hoax, others believe the footage does show something unusual. One of the more prominent conventional explanations to surface suggests that the object is actually a reflection on the window of something from within the plane.

"The actual footage in its original content was sent to the FAA for further review," Ruiz wrote in an update on December 27th. "UFOlogist and investigators please be patient. Let FAA do their review in fairness to all."

"A home video allegedly taken just before Christmas during a late-night flight appears to show a UFO flying next to the plane."

I can answer your question psyche. If the light was above the camera (over the guy's shoulder) then its reflection could not be reflected by the window back towards the camera. Since we are talking about reflections you can think of the window as if it were a mirror on the wall of the aircraft. It is in front of the camera to the right. So it would be like standing near a mirror on the wall while you are near the wall with the mirror on your right and in front of you. The reflections you would see in the mirror would be of objects in the room that are in front of you and to your left, b... [More]

Gidday Mate Thank you, all the best for the new year, I do hope it is most excellent for you. Thank you for the analogy, I just went and tried that in a mirror, and that is exactly what I was trying to understand, the mirrored reflection on the surface of the pane, and I could not get the reflection to show, let alone get in front of my hand. Thank you, I have it now. Those cross hairs just kept throwing me, but it must be merely a co-incidence. I guess this proves we cannot believe what we see! Cheers Mate.

THats the ticket ! Those cross hares are right on ! I read what everyone has posted ,but just my opinion,from my point of view,the object in the window is the reflection of the cabin overhead light panel to the rear of the camera operators position. JMO. again ITS JUST my opinion ! But Far be it from me I be held out the aircraft at 35 k and ask to prove it !

I read all the posts and regardless of all the work going into them...it's a reflection in my humble opinion. Sometimes the most likely answer is actually the correct one!

Think about it like this, if you wanted to prove something was a reflection in a window near you all you would have to do is block it out with another reflection from an object closer to the window such as the reflection of your own hand. Of course if the reflection of your hand does not block out the light then it is not a reflection. It's that simple.

I was just on a flight at night and from my seat I looked at a natural viewing point est 45 deg angle at the reflections from behind my position and then held my hand to the front of the reflection and observed what I can only tell you as the almost exact view in the video. I will take my camera next month on another flt and try to reproduce the effect. Food for thought. Cheer`s LS.

I think you are confused. It isn't where he held his hand, it is where he positioned the reflection of his hand that you can see in the video. Maybe that reflection of his hand is hard for some people to see or notice and that is what is causeing some of the confusion here? Yeah you can wave you hand around in the cameras POV but what matters is where you wave the reflection of your hand on the window, that reflection of your hand must pass over the same spot on the window that you see another suspected reflection. If the reflection of your hand (being closer to the window) blocks out ... [More]
