Mysterious Swirling Lights in Israel and Lebanon
June 10, 2012 Leave a Comment
A strange phenomenon of swirling lights was seen over Armenia, Georgia, Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, Israel, and other countries in the Middle East a few nights ago. The swirling lights appeared to be coming from a shining object, swirling around looking like smoke. Thousands of people think they have now seen a UFO, but experts remain skeptical.
A similar incident happened in Norway in 2009, it turned out to be a failed missile launch. Astronomical experts are speculating that the object is just a satellite which had exploded into orbit. Lebanese reporters suggest that it was the remains of a meteorite, which smashed into pieces that created a dust trail with a glow behind it. Israeli Defense Forces claim they were unaware of any operations in the area.
The Russian Defense Ministry made a statement that the country had successfully test-fired a Topol strategic intercontinental ballistic missile, but the launch was apparently made from a testing area in Kazakhstan, which is 3,500kms away from where the object was seen on Israel’s northern border.
Every single possible UFO case always has a number of possible explanations, with no one ever being 100% right. In this case, my best guess is that it was probably a missile due to the fact of the similar incident in 2009 in Norway. The swirling lights pattern is inconsistent with many other reported incidents of UFO’s, most of which eyewitnesses describe crafts hovering still, or in a patterned formation. While these swirling lights are the highlight of this case, I am personally more concerned with Russia test firing intercontinental ballistic missiles.
