The UFO Phenomenon

Fireball 'UFO' filmed over California

Ken Roberts had been driving home when he witnessed something unusual shooting across the sky.
Turning his camera skywards, Roberts recorded footage of a bright fiery object careening down from the heavens, a spectacle that would normally be interpreted as a meteor or a piece of space debris burning up in the planet's atmosphere.

What makes this particular video unique however is the fact that a few seconds in to the recording a small object appears to break away from the fireball and fly back in to the sky instead of falling to the ground as would be expected if it were a piece of debris.
"Couldn't have been a plane cause there was no noise," he said. "And I never heard a crash."

The video has been the subject of considerable controversy and debate since appearing online and has so far been viewed more than 1.4 million times on YouTube.

This is not the video of the January 9th event. I watched this same video online a couple of weeks before that date. There WAS a similar event on January 9th though, but it moved MUCH faster than the one in this video. We saw it from Maricopa, AZ (near Phoenix) from the back porch at about 6pm Mountain time. It was headed west and covered the entire sky from horizon to horizon in less than ten seconds. I didn't see it split, but my wife and her friend did (my view at that exact moment was blocked by the patio overhang). They both described how a small part suddenly took off in a completely dif...

No. But some are just mis-identification. Sometimes unintentionally, sometime on purpose. It's just that most are faked, and none so far have been proven to be actual alien spacecraft at this time. But I'd like to point out that "UFO" is anything flying that can't be identified, and doesn't mean it's an alien spacecraft. However, in this vid, it's...once again...not an alien spacecraft. Lemme ask you this: do you think every single video of a UFO is "real"? Of course not. All i am saying is that not every video is fake. I would say 30 percent of footage is actually et when it comes to recordin... [More]

Of course not. All i am saying is that not every video is fake. I would say 30 percent of footage is actually et when it comes to recordings. 30% ??? Can you post a few of these 30% ?

Of course not. All i am saying is that not every video is fake. I would say 30 percent of footage is actually et when it comes to recordings. So if we take the number of results earned by searching for "UFO" on YT, we get 6.83M hits and so by yr "math"+"logic" as well, 2M vids do shown crafts of extraterrestrial orgin and operated by extraterrestrial beings? And until today we do not have even one single case with a final proof of the existence of extraterrestrial activities on Earth? You are naiv.

Of course not. All i am saying is that not every video is fake. I would say 30 percent of footage is actually et when it comes to recordings. Then it should be easy fro you to post one that you feel is positively real in another thread and see what everyone thinks. Just link your thread here if you can.

Of course not. All i am saying is that not every video is fake. I would say 30 percent of footage is actually et when it comes to recordings. By all means of respect, but where on Earth did you get the 30% number from? That, to me, sounds completely ludicrous. Cheers, Badeskov
