A Florida UFO is causing quite the stir. Witnesses say an unidentified flying object glided quietly above a Carnival Cruise Lines ship in Ft. Lauderdale on October 10 in broad daylight. Immediately, a debate ensued over whether the strange aerial object spotted was spy drone, GoPro-equipped Quadcopter or a video editing job using CGI technology to mimic an actual UFO sighting.
Reportedly, a passenger aboard a Carnival Cruise ship captured the moment a UFO hovered high in the skies above the Florida coastline. Unlike other strange outer-space ships “caught on camera,” this flying object was not orb-shaped and didn’t resemble a flying saucer.
The owner of the video sent her footage to ThirdPhaseofMoon, which was then uploaded to its YouTube channel.
Another recent sighting of a UFO in Florida was reported to the Mutual UFO Network (or MUFON) in September. Several witnesses reported seeing a rapidly-moving and low-flying object during the mid-morning hours along I-95 in Ft. Lauderdale. One witness, who included this cell-phone image explains.
“I noticed a double rainbow in the sky. I got out my Smartphone to photograph the rainbow and took four pictures in succession. On the fourth photograph I captured what appears to be a UFO flying really fast next to the rainbow. As quickly as it appeared, it was gone.”
The reactions to the recent sighting in Florida are mixed. While some UFO enthusiasts were enthralled by the video footage of the supposed UFO craft observed over a Carnival Cruise passenger ship, some skeptics say it was either an amateur or military drone. Others dismiss the aerial object as a photo-editing job made to mislead viewers.
“This is one of the few that isn’t faked. It’s a real object, and the person who took the video is not a hoaxer – too much shaky camera to be a professional hoax. The only guessable ID could be a modified drone to hoax or to spy on or just to take video of the ship. It flies along casually without a care in the world – so – it’s not a top secret air craft from any known country. Yep – it’s a Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) until its identified (via ImTheDaveman).”
“Looks like video editing to me. The camera shake looks artificial as does the zoom and focus. The lighting of the object never changes which would be unlikely. The object does not change velocities either and appears to be following a pre-determined path. This wouldn’t be all that difficult to replicate. Looks amateur really. The fact that this is on the front page of yahoo is astounding, (via mikemorr100).”
What’s interesting is that the video purporting to be footage of a UFO flying over Florida, high above a Carnival ship is the only known recording that appears on the Internet. With the widespread use of camera-equipped tablets and smartphones, it’s odd that any other passenger aboard the ship have not come forward with evidence of a UFO sighting.
