Is this a real object, or CGI ? Image Credit: YouTube / LUFOS
Footage recorded from an airline passenger window shows an anomalous object zooming in and out of view.
While a lot of UFOs caught on camera are criticized for being too indistinct, too blurry or too far away to make out properly, sometimes the opposite is true - something is caught on film that is so clear that the first thought that springs to mind is that it is just too good to be true.
This latest clip is one such case.
According to reports, the footage was originally posted up on Twitter by a woman who had been flying home from Chicago when she captured an object outside of the airplane window.
The anomalous craft seems to zoom into view within a split second, matches the plane's speed for a few seconds, then disappears as quickly as it had appeared without leaving any visible traces.
"Okay y'all, when I was flying home from Chicago I saw something spooky; my gut instinct was UFO but figured that couldn't be possible so then I thought military drone, but idk... thoughts?" she wrote.
Her Twitter post was later removed without explanation.
While the reaction in the video seems genuine, it is very possible that the UFO could be little more than CGI - indeed the phrase 'too good to be true' may be all too accurate here.
