Possibly UFO Seen Flying Over Mosul, Iraq, in Surveillance Video
A metallic orb spotted on camera hovering over the Iraqi city of Mosul is reportedly the focus of an investigation by the US military and intelligence establishment.
On Tuesday’s premiere episode of the brand-new podcast “Weaponized,” UFO researcher Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell and journalist George Knapp presented the image, which is a still from a four-second video clip captured on April 16, 2016, by a reconnaissance aircraft in northern Iraq.
The object, known as the Mosul orb, was reportedly captured on camera by both a military organization and an intelligence agency, said Corbell. It was given the name of the Iraqi city where it was first discovered.
According to Corbell, the metallic-colored sphere appeared to follow the spy plane in the video without reducing its height.
The “Weaponized” podcasters who obtained the image are documentary filmmaker Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell and investigative journalist George Knapp.
Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell is a documentary filmmaker and UFO researcher.
This is classified as a UFO by our intelligence community. This is an example of a UFO that our military and intelligence agency are now looking into. It’s only one of many photographs,” Corbell said.
The Department of Defense did not immediately react to a request for comment regarding the veracity of the picture offered by “Weaponized.”
The recently established All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, or AARO, at the Pentagon has reportedly investigated hundreds of reports of unidentified flying objects over the period of many months, according to research published earlier this month.
The image, according to the podcasters, is a part of the Pentagon’s continuing inquiry into hundreds of “unidentified aerial phenomena,” or UAP.
366 freshly found UFO sightings reported by the military were evaluated by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Six were “attributed to airborne debris,” 163 were “balloon or balloon-like things,” and 26 were found to be drones.
Investigations into the remaining 171 “unremarkable” reports that “demonstrated strange flight characteristics or performance capabilities” will continue.
The head of AARO, Sean Kirkpatrick, had remarked that his office had received “many hundreds” of reports.
The Pentagon is still looking into UAP allegations, but it has not been able to prove the existence of extraterrestrial life.
