A video of two bizarre strings of lights floating in the sky over Montreal has gone viral, racking up 434,000 views on Twitter.
The video, posted by @LatestUFOs accountshows two sets of four lights flying in a triangle formation 12 minutes apart over the Canadian city.
“What the hell, that’s not a goddam plane – why the hell is it so damn close? What the heck is that actually? What the hell? ‘ the person behind the camera is heard saying while watching the first lights.
“I’m shaking right now, I’m not even going to lie, I’m fucking shaking. It didn’t look like a freaking plane but it was really freaking close to the ground and I’m nowhere near an airport.”
Twelve minutes later, as the second set flew by, the person said, “One sounded more like multiple planes, but the other had a very low hum and there’s no base nearby — I don’t know what’s going on.”
UFOs, also known as UAPs (Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena), are aerial objects that cannot be immediately explained. These strange phenomena have captured the imaginations of people around the world for hundreds of years and are often associated with visitation by extraterrestrial species or government subterfuges.
“The majority of UAPs can be viewed as balloons, drones or floating airborne debris. In some cases, the visual impression is affected by ‘perspective distortion,’ where a slow-moving nearby object looks like a large, fast, distant object.” Joshua Semeter, professor of electrical and computer engineering and director of the Center for Space Physics at the Boston University previously said news week.
“Nevertheless, there is a small percentage of observations that remain unexplained. These cases generally involve an object exhibiting unusual flight characteristics — for example, rapid acceleration, high speed, or extreme maneuverability — characteristics that cannot be readily explained by known technologies,” said Semeter, who is also a member of NASA’s independent panel on the investigation of UAPs is.
On Tuesday, the lights were identified as Canadian military helicopters flying in formation by a UFO (unidentified flying object) fact checking account named @ufoofinterest.
“These were Royal Canadian Air Force military exercises with four Bell CH-146 Griffons,” @ufoofinterest tweeted in response to the viral video.
The Montreal lights come after several bizarre sightings over the US and Canada earlier this year. On February 1, a Chinese spy balloon was sighted over the United States and eventually shot down off the coast of South Carolina, followed by three other unidentified objects shot down on February 10 over Deadhorse, Alaska, and February 11 over the Yukon, Canada became. and over Lake Huron on February 12th.
