Airline pilot films 'foo fighter' UFO over Pakistan

What is this object and where did it come from ? Image Credit: Pakistan International Airlines
A short clip of a strange orb-shaped object filmed from the cockpit of a passenger jet has recently gone viral.
The unidentified object, which was snapped by the crew of a Pakistan International Airlines flight between Multan and Sahiwal, was captured on camera back on January 23rd.

The pilot - Captain Faisal Qureshi - later recalled that the object was surrounded by a metallic ring and emitted a bright light at its center. On the footage, it appears as a stationary white orb.

The story was quickly picked up by local news stations in the region.
"It was necessary to inform the public and the media about it," said PIA spokesperson Abdullah Khan. When asked what he thought it was however, he declined to speculate.

The object has since been likened to a 'foo fighter' - a category of unidentified flying object spotted by pilots during Word War 2. No definitive explanation for the phenomenon was ever found.

Some have speculated that the object over Pakistan could have been a weather balloon, however crew members who witnessed it first-hand remain adamant that it was something more.

You can check out the footage for yourself below.

And the one over RP.  Birds or a birthday balloon for sure.

Unlike you reasons were given for the statements made. You seem to have nothing to offer. Any comments about the video?

About the original video, just like someone else pointed out it looks like Venus. Sadly, due to the nature of the awful footage there's not much to say about it. I don't know why someone would claim "unidentified" when there's a light dot that can be from anything from anywhere.  About the Puerto Rico video (I think we've discussed this one) and there's a paper about it (like 100 pages long isn't?) I gonna assume that the pilots or the one doing the "lock" knows that the object might not be a bird/balloon (not saying it isn't) that's why it keeps following him but I'm not sure, you know, pilot...

For the sake of completeness, there is lots of info (not necessarily *good* info...) about the Puerto Rico thing, including two 'reports', here: There was a thread here about it, but it seems to go nowhere: With regard to the first link.... I have little or no respect for 'ExploreSCU' - their analyses are VERY questionable at times and they often make statements that are completely unsupported or omit major (and obvious) possibilities. As an example, they say: First (and admittedly trivially) usi... [More]

The last video included in the above link is rather interesting.  You can skip to 2:11 to see the UFO. Any ideas as to what it could be?

Nope.  Could be Venus in a crescent phase, where sharpening has given it those 'edges'.. or maybe a weather balloon or satellite that uses infrared to transmit info to earth (yeah, that's unlikely!) There are several issues: 1. It's made difficult by him filming the FLIR screen in such a way that almost all of the screen information from the FLIR display is cropped out, especially when he flicked to 'visual'...  Grrr - why would he not use the output feed and thus the original imagery?. 2. He states "It can be safely stated that the object was within the atmosphere", but gives zero reason for ... [More]

Thanks for the response. But please don't hold back.

Don't worry, it's nothing substantial, just a bit of trivia regarding what info Falch didn't include, and thence, why.  I'm trying to find that footage being discussed anywhere else, in which case I'd like to see what else Falch has to say.  But as far as I can see, that reference is it... no one else seems interested.

A rather underwhelming UFO.
