A video of an oddly-shaped UFO recently made its way through social media, with alien enthusiasts calling the footage the "first alien sighting of 2018." It's technically a UFO, but is it really alien in origin?
The First Alien Sighting Of 2018
A video clip of a supposed UFO has been circulating on social media as of late and it has conspiracy theorists and UFO enthusiasts abuzz. The video was supposedly shot by a woman in Mexico and shows a vertical, strangely-shaped object that appears to be hovering in the air.
What is now being dubbed as the first alien sighting of 2018 seems to have been shot while in a moving vehicle. It had the woman asking "what is that?" pertaining to the object of alleged extraterrestrial origin.
According to UFO expert Pedro Ramirez, there has been a spike in alien activity since the last two months of 2017, likely because of the NASA and SpaceX space launches. With more launches already scheduled in the coming months, he surmises that there will be even more of such mysterious events and sightings.
What's more, Ramirez claims that aliens are aware of humanity's recent launches and identified them as "war material." He also stated that 2018 will be a big one for those who are following the phenomenon.
"Concerned by our activity, they have been increasingly monitoring our planet," said Ramirez.
That said, while many are intrigued with the supposed alien sighting, others are skeptical. Some people are saying that it rather looks like a person testing out a jetpack and others think that the video was fake.
Technically, the object seen hovering the sky in the video is a UFO being unidentified. It looks like it is indeed flying, and it is an object. However, it still remains to be seen what the object is exactly.
For instance, during the Apollo 16 in 1972, astronauts John Young, Charles Duke, and Thomas Mattingly captured a short footage of what seemed to be an object with a dome on top. However, using a high-resolution digital scan of the original footage, it was concluded to be the spacewalk floodlight.
Regarding the object filmed flying above Mexico, the jury is still out as to what the object actually is or even whether it is real or fake. For now, the object remains to be an unidentified flying object.
