Does ‘UFO’ sighting above Jerusalem shrine suggest alien existence?

Thursday, February 3, 2011

LONDON - Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) enthusiasts have claimed that videos showing a shining ball of light hovering above a Jerusalem shrine could finally prove aliens exist.

The clips show the pulsating orb descend and hover above the Dome of the Rock, an ancient Islamic shrine, before shooting up into the night sky. It then descends again and disappears, reports the Daily Mail.

Unusually, the sighting has been filmed from different viewpoints, meaning it has been more difficult to dismiss than most.

The footage was taken in Jerusalem at 1 am on January 29 and has spread like wildfire on the Internet.

It has been viewed by hundreds of thousands of people and prompted fierce debate among UFO enthusiasts and sceptics.

“If these are real, they are some of the most incredible videos ever shot.

If they are not, then this is a very well-planned and co-ordinated hoax designed to eliminate elements of doubt,” former Ministry of Defence UFO investigator Nick Pope told The Sun.

He said the way the object shoots up suggests it is unmanned.

“We know the Israeli army has some very high-tech drones at its disposal.

If this is one, it is one of the most advanced pieces of technology created by man,” he added. (ANI)
