Could this be a kite, a drone, or something else ? Image Credit: YouTube / om
A recently uploaded video shows a peculiar triangular-shaped object gliding across the sky in South America.
The footage, which was uploaded on May 3rd by YouTube user 'om', shows the object - which resembles a triangular wedge shape - moving from left to right high up above the trees.
"I thought it was a kite but it flew slowly in a straight line," the uploader wrote. "Then I realized it wasn't a kite. It has an obvious triangular shape, if it's not [a] UFO, what is it ?"
A short time later he elaborated further on the story behind the recording:
"I filmed this just now on top of a mountain in Colombia," he wrote. "At first I thought it was a kite because of the shape but it's not that windy."
"Then it flew slowly in a straight line from East to West (or South to North)."
"It was much clearer when I look especially when it was over my head, I saw it wasn't flat shape, kind of like upside triangular pyramid."
So what could the object be ?
One possibility is that his initial reaction - that it was a kite - might not be that unreasonable. Perhaps it is a kite that escaped and was picked up by strong winds that carried it across a large distance.
It is also important not to discount the possibility of a hoax - could the UFO be computer generated ?
Ultimately, it's difficult to say.
