Mystery object falls from the sky during lightning storm
May 7, 2022 | 24 comments
A meat packing plant worker recently captured footage of an unidentified object falling from the heavens.
The footage, which was captured in Texas during a thunderstorm, starts off as you might expect with views of dark storm clouds briefly illuminated in the night sky by flashes of lightning.
Suddenly, however, a bright object can be seen shooting down to the ground from above.
"I can't say that I have encountered anything like this before," said the 23-year-old.
"I've never really recorded the skies or anything and that day of the storm I really felt the need to record. I'm open to any suggestions as to what it might be or what it was."
Upon posting the clip on social media, he soon received dozens of replies from other users speculating over what the mysterious object could have been.
Several people likened it to the beginning of H.G. Wells' classic alien invasion novel 'The War of the Worlds
' in which aliens from Mars arrive on Earth in so-called 'meteors'.
There were also suggestions that he could have captured evidence of ball lightning - an elusive phenomenon that is only ever rarely seen and even more rarely captured on camera.
Whether the case, the footage has made for some interesting debate.
