A UFO sighting has been reported over the skies of Pakistan by the pilots of Pakistan International Airlines, who were flying their regular Karachi to Lahore flight. The sighting happened near Rahim Yar Khan, which is a city in the Punjab province of Pakistan.
The video was tweeted out by Ather Kazmi, special correspondent to the BBC, which shows the shiny object floating in the sky as the airplane passes it. The unnamed pilot used his phone to take the video and it is now making its way across the internet. The object in the video, which appears round in shape, though can’t be seen for long, still has not been verified. The pilot said via Indian Express, “The UFO was extremely bright despite the presence of sunlight,” but also said that the object in question could also have been an “artificial planet” or even a “space station.” Those two things seem quite debatable.
A spokesperson for the airlines said that the object was spotted around 4 P.M. and that the pilots reported it back to the control room immediately upon its appearance. Since the UFO tweet was posted, responses have been somewhat humorous.
This sighting is one of a few that have been reported in recent months. In January 2021, a traveler aboard a Singapore Airlines flight began to record as the plane was making its descent into Zurich, Switzerland. He was recording for a few minutes when his recording captured a near collision with a UFO. Passengers aboard the aircraft began to panic as the pilots began to follow their safety protocols, causing the engines to roar. The clip – which has since been pulled from YouTube – is said to show the Swiss landscape before the plane tilts as it begins its descent. This is when the UFO flies past and just below the plane.
In another recent UFO sighting, onlookers in Oahu, Hawaii were stunned to see a mysterious blue light in the evening sky that appeared to float then take off, prompting a few of the onlookers to follow it. One witness named Moriah told Hawaii News Now “I look up and then I was like oh shit!” she said. “I started calling my husband and them because they were all in the garage. I was like hey. Come look up there. See if you see what I see. They all said yea!” Her family jumped in their car to follow it, a chase that ended three miles from where they started, landing them right in front of the Board of Water Supply building. It was then that the bright blue object appeared to drop right into the ocean. In one of Moriah’s videos, she can be heard saying, “(It) went land in the water. Whatever it is.”
But for Moriah and her family, the UFO adventure wasn’t quite over. They called 911 to report what they saw and when the officers arrived, so did another UFO. “My husband went look up and he seen the white one coming,” she said. “The white one was smaller. Was coming in the same direction as the blue one.” This one didn’t last as long as the blue light, as it disappeared quickly over a nearby mountain.
All of these sightings come on the heels of the U.S. Navy releasing three declassified videos they had captured over the years of what appears to be UFOs, which they are calling unidentified aerial phenomena. The reason for the government release of the videos was “to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real or whether or not there is more to the videos,” said the Department of Defense on its website.
The videos in question came from Navy training flights in 2004 and then again in 2015. The 2004 video took place about 100 miles out over the Pacific Ocean, showing an oblong UFO hovering over the water before flying away. The 2015 video shows objects moving quickly with one of them seeming to spin as it is flying in the air. One of the pilots can be heard saying, “Look at that thing, dude! It’s rotating!” The US Government also released a picture taken by a pilot in 2018 which shows a cube-shaped object in the sky.
Whether or not these are actual UFOs or have some other explanation, it’s like they say, “The truth is out there.”
