Turkish airline pilot films UFO during flight

Pilot Atilla Senturk and his crew encountered a strange object during a routine flight from Istanbul to Cologne.
Turkish news sites are this week reporting that the crew of a Turkish Airlines flight on May 10th witnessed a very bright, fast-moving object which appeared to move perilously close to the plane before moving off at considerable speed.

Pilot Atilla Senturk, whose phone footage of the object can be viewed in the video below, described it as an "incredibly bright celestial body at high altitude."

"I did not see anything flying so fast," he said . "It was not a satellite or a star. Then it disappeared at an incredible speed. [It] was very close to us and very bright despite the sun."

"Cabin supervisor Efsun Selin Sezer and First Officer Ozgur Erdas were [also] witnesses."

While the video is difficult to make out, it certainly seems to show something in the sky nearby.

Exactly what it was that the crew encountered that day however continues to remain a total mystery.

There are very earthly explanations for the Los Angeles incident. There are threads discussing that incident here at UM. Thete is no connection between that incident and space. Its a huge leap as well as illogical to default to an extraordinary explanation in that instance.  But making stuff up doesn't help with serious investigation of such claims. Unless there is a truly viable option outside of Sci Fi, it's pointless to speculate random ideas.  And yet no mothers ups have ever been sighted. More importantly of all the UFOs tracked, and there are many, not a single one has ever been confirme... [More]

There is nothing that indicates a wormhole can be used for travel. If they do work as the theory indicates, and if exotic matter exists that could hold them open for more than a fraction of a second, they would be only good for communication. They are quite small in nature, nothing like what Sci Fi utilises l, that's a Hollywood wormhole, not a real one.  You do realise that to direct a wormhole that you have to set up both ends don't you? How would aliens cross space in the first instance to set up this end, not to mention the energy signature which would be massive and lighting up every radi... [More]

The issue is that your use of the supernova has many problems: You assume that the rate of supernova has been constant over time, at least 12By. The Milky Way galaxy has been around for 12.7By.  You assumed that civilizations would be near one of these massive stars. Unlikely. Massive stars are unlikely to be places where life exists. The devastated area is approximately 50 light years in radius. Escaping a supernova is an unlikely option. Posting hypothetical solutions that may not exist does not support your original claim.

That an UFO sightings are higher among the general public than they are for amateur astronomers...At least according to my man Neil Degrasse Tyson.

If it's the case I recall, the most likely explanation was meteor/meteorite braking up. Another pilot thought that was what they saw too. So it doesn't sound that similar, no. The fact that the only video released of this is a 10 second clip which correlates very little to the OP article deion is an issue. The fact that you blindly ignore that issue to favor your ET/UFO agenda is an issue that you seem to have over and over. Just like how you cannot comprehend such a simple concept as the lens flares in the picture you posted, and continue to blindly believe that the lights are actually in the... [More]

And there are hundreds of thousands more of explanations that say "lozenger shaped" or "disk shaped" object. are you prepared to [prove all the eyewitnesses wrong? Then I side with what THEY say, not with what someone who was not there says. LOL. And I am sure you can tell me what the US Army was firing at, right?  They *eventually* stated it was a weather balloon. do you agree? Pointless for some., not for me and many others.  Yes mother ships have on rare occasion been seen,. But you don't believe *anything* eyewitnesses say when it comes to UFOs anyway, so..... Yes but I am certain the Alie... [More]

They are that way to US, we don't know what ET knows.  What I know is... they're here. Don't really care in the end how they got here. They're here.

I get a kick out of those that have a belief NOT based on anything but their wishful thinking. They are so ingrained in this close minded position they can't seem to understand that it is wishful thinking and there is no evidence.

  I get a kick out of you people that can't understand normal English,,   Unexplained-MYSTERIES.  Mysteries means you don't have all the facts.  So, this induces speculation.  If you want only topics in here where all the facts are known, you don't have a mystery, hence it is you who is misplaced, not the subject matter, and certainly not the posters that speculate. So please stop holding speculators up for scorn and stick to the thread topic.

Wonderful.Now we have another case of someone that pretends that the name of the forum modifies the subject matter. How droll. Stick to the subject matter? You of all posters seem unable to do that in any thread. I have already supplied a reasonable deion of what happened. I did not introduce supernova or worm holes and all of the other off topic crap. But you did.
