In a video uploaded on YouTube and viewed by 40,000 people, it appears as if an array of UFOs was departing the moon, sending tongues wagging that the UFOs are manned by extraterrestrials or aliens who have a base on the moon.
The video, "Large Group of UFOs Leaving the Moon," was uploaded by Geri Vigil and shows unusual blobs ferrying out of the bottom area of the moon.
Aliens Saving The Moon From Humans
Hardcore UFO believer Scott C, Waring quickly endorsed the video and called it a spectacle of alien-controlled UFOs.
"It's been known by a lot of astronomers that if the edge of the moon is observed well enough, you will see fleets of UFOs in orbit move around the moon's horizon. These objects are clearly in orbit around the moon and may be there to protect the moon from humanity," Waring asserted.
The sightings have excited UFO hunters the world over. According to viewers of the video, one UFO was crawling across the moon's surface with two more objects zooming across the sky.
Another uploader from Arizona who also sighted two objects passing through the sky added more credibility to the sightings. Rondomon noted that the objects he spotted were also tracked by the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.
YouTube user Misterio Canal uploaded another UFO sighting, which, unlike the Arizona sighting, had a mysterious object flying close to the moon's surface.
Waring, who is also the editor of UFO Sightings Daily, said he was convinced that the footage was genuine and the circular craft was indeed manned by aliens.
Though NASA or any government agency has not confirmed intelligent extraterrestrial life, a rising number of unexplained sightings and the buzz about extraterrestrial phenomena have been difficult to ignore.
However, some viewers of the YouTube played down the clip as if they were not convinced.
One user commented: "This is so obviously fake."
Rational Reasons For UFO Sightings
For another viewer, it was an illusion caused by the higher humidity of the air when the moonlight gets distorted. Calling it a mirage, he said UFOs were not exiting the moon as has been claimed.
Another explanation was presented by John Biondo, who wrote that the objects in the video were not UFOs but the result of a common optical problem called chromatic aberration.
