A peculiar piece of footage purportedly shot by a storm spotter in Missouri shows a bizarre circular UFO that appears to sport glowing spikes. The intriguing video was reportedly filmed over the summer in the community of Festus, but only surfaced online last week. According to the individual who recorded the footage, they work for the National Weather Service and "during the off-season, I like to shoot slow motion video" of lightning storms, which is how they happened to capture the curious object on that particular night.
In the video, a faint glowing circle that appears almost dome-like can be seen just beneath some clouds in the night sky. Suddenly, the anomaly seemingly collapses in on itself to become a ball of light which then dips down and then flies upwards out of the scene. An enhanced version of the footage provides a clearer view of the suspected UFO, which somewhat resembles the spike-covered Medieval weapon known as a morning star. After reviewing the footage from that evening, the witness "realized that I had captured something on video that I can not explain" and subsequently "asked my peers in meteorology what they think it is and no one has an answer."
As for what the weird object could be, some UFO enthusiasts have suggested that the anomaly could be an alien craft of some kind and that perhaps it was drawn to the area by the unfolding storm. More skeptical observers, however, argue that the 'craft' could be a light projection emanating from the ground below or, failing that, a reflection created by the person behind the camera, either on purpose in order to pull off a UFO hoax or by accident when they were adjusting their equipment.
Too still for a balloon imo? ... Don't really know what it is? ... Drone? .. Blimp?... Genuine Flying Saucer? ... not sure?? ... but it did instantly remind me of one of the most celebrated [and still undebunked] picture series from 65 years ago...
...The Trindade UFO pictures of January 18 1958... famously taken by Almiro Baraúna in the presence of many reliable witnesses, investigated to-death ... and despite the false rantings of the unreasonably-religious-debunkers , has never been debunked!
... what do you guys think?
