Police release footage of 'UFO' during storm


Posted on Tuesday, 19 February, 2019 | Comment icon 17 comments

What is this thing ? Image Credit: Facebook / Broome Police
A video recording of a strange light in the sky over Australia was posted online this week by Broome Police.
The footage, which was recorded in Kimberley District, Western Australia during a thunderstorm, shows an illuminated circular object that briefly appears in the sky, moves and then fades away.

"After reviewing CCTV at town beach of last nights storm, it appears we were not alone," officers with the Western Australia Police Force wrote on Facebook.

But could this really be an otherworldly visitor or is something else going on ?

If you look closely at the bottom right of the frame, you can see a car moving off in perfect sync with the light in the sky. It is likely that the 'UFO' is actually the lens flare from the car's headlights.

Jesus guys, of course it's a lens flare it says that right there. If you would actually pay attention, you'd realize that the police that posted this video were very tongue-in-cheek about it. But no just ignore that and keep patting yourself on the back for how "smart" you are.

There seems to be a bit of a thing in Oz for the constabulary to post 'funny' tweets and facebook entries...  I think this was intended as humour, but given that many people don't seem to notice lens flares except when they are pointed out and explained... it fell a bit flat. Here's the Twitter feed... https://twitter.com/BroomePol It's worth a quick browse to get the 'flavour'....  I note that the region seems a to have a very active and successful Free Bike Sharing system, of the involuntary type...   And yes, it 100% is a lens flare from that vehicle, if anyone is still teetering..

???    Well, who could argue with that well-described event? Lynne, you won't be thought of as any kind of nut if you describe the entire event in detail and in a matter of fact way.  If however you yell ALIENZ, then maybe you might not get such a polite reception.  If you read this thread you will realise that what was shown here is a joke - it's a lens flare. So try again (get a young person to help with posting?), and tell us: Do you wear glasses? Which direction were you facing? What made you notice it? What colour/s was it, what shape, if any? How long did you see it for, and where did it... [More]

Given the suddenly truncated post and the fact that she has not been back online since she posted, I would have to surmise that Lynne was taken out by the MIB for knowing too much.  Thankfully they probably just erased her memories. So.. that one was the real deal!!!!
