A “FLEET” of UFOs was caught on camera possibly escaping from an underground “alien base”, according to prominent ufologist Scott C Waring.
Up to six of the unidentified flying objects (UFOs) were filmed in the skies above St George, Utah, in the US. Conspiracy theorist and UFO hunter Scott C Waring believes the UFOs could be alien in nature, suggesting they came from underground. The UFO footage was shared with the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), a non-profit collective of volunteers studying UFO sightings worldwide.
Mr Waring said on his blog ET Database: “Here is a great report just in to MUFON today.
“Two guys were out looking at the sky in St George, Utah and noticed a fleet of strange shiny objects in the far distant sky.
“These things are fascinating to watch and I really would have like to see these guys try to get closer, but if there is a military base in that area, then the land will be off limits.”
In the video footage shared to Mr Waring’s YouTube channel, you can see bizarre flashes of light in the sky.

Mr Waring said: “They seem to be rising upwards into the clouds.
“Probably came from an underground alien base in the local area. Awesome catch.”
According to the original eyewitness, the flashes of light were filmed from a distance of about 40 miles (64km).
The witness initially mistook the UFOs for a helicopter or jet aircraft from the Nellis Air Force Base 70 miles (112km away).
However, the witness described the objects flash like a square play.
The objects then moved in a northeast direction before dimming out and vanishing from sight.
The man who filmed the video can be heard saying: “Look there’s another one.
“Whoah, there’s like four or five, six.”
But there is very little evidence beyond the video to support the claim the flashes were created by alien spaceships.

According to prominent astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, UFO eyewitnesses often jump to the wrong conclusion when they see events they cannot explain.
He told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota: “The universe brims with mysteries. Just because you don’t know what it is you’re looking at doesn’t mean it’s intelligent aliens visiting from another planet
“Scientists live in mystery every day of our lives.
“People are uncomfortable not knowing, not the scientists. I’m fine.
“We don’t know what it is. Keep checking out.”
Scientists can also explain many UFO sightings through a peculiar trick of the mind known as pareidolia.
Pareidolia occurs when the brain recognises familiar faces and shapes where they are not present.
Astronomer Larry Sessions told EarthSky.org: “Seeing recognizable objects or patterns in otherwise random or unrelated objects or patterns is called pareidolia.
“It’s a form of apophenia, which is a more general term for the human tendency to seek patterns in random information.”
