A GLOWING orb has supposedly been spotted over the Utah Desert, leading some to claim that it is evidence of aliens visiting Earth.
A video was submitted to the UFO investigation network MUFON which appears to show a white orb in the dead of night over the Utah desert. A man behind the camera can be heard excitedly calling for his friend as he spots the strange anomaly in the sky, and conspiracy theorists were quick to discover the video, claiming it is definitive proof of aliens.
Prominent UFO hunter Scott C Waring wrote on his blog ET Database: “This just came in at MUFON today.
“A guy is reporting a glowing white orb coming very low and close to the rooftops of his home.
“It looks like it’s very late at night and the guy’s girlfriend is still in the house because at the end of the video he gets irritated and says, ‘Hey Teresa! Get out here! Get up! You got to see this!’
“But by that time the glowing orb seemed to have moved off and disappears in the distance.
“I guess Teresa missed it, but its awesome he caught raw footage of the object for her and all of us to see.
“It’s not a drone, drone lights are not that powerful and it’s not a plane or helicopter, because it’s silent and not far above the houses.
“I estimate it flying at 50 meters above the eyewitness. It noticed him, circled him but was distracted by other glowing lights nearby. Absolutely real, absolutely unexplainable.”
However, some claim there is a much more rational reason for the sighting.
One person wrote on the YouTube video: “Just another weather balloon.”
According to former NASA engineer James Oberg, most UFO sightings are nothing more than “space dandruff” floating in front of cameras.
These specks of dandruff can be anything from bits of chipped paint drifting aimlessly in zero gravity, flakes of ice or ISS insulation that has broken off.
Mr Oberg said: “I’ve had enough experience with real spaceflight to realise that what’s being seen in many videos is nothing beyond the ‘norm’ from fully mundane phenomena occurring in unearthly settings.”

Mr Waring has argued humanity has the strength to deal with such a shocking alien revelation if NASA were to admit it.
He said: “Much like COVID-19 did to the people in each country as it spread, because the public once believed that such a pandemic would be impossible, and yet, the human race has changed their perspective on that very fast.
“That’s how disclosure of intelligent aliens would be, but it would not kill people or frighten them as much.”
