UFO in Israel?

One of my friends linked this on their Facebook page this AM.

What do you think?

Gizmodo link.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Edit: right pannel video looks like star wars is going on. btw, where is the 4th video?

I don't like jumping to conclusions, but look how the flash lights up the entire area. It looks a bit too hard to fake that. There's another video from an American tourist though showing a closeup of the Dome and the flash looks completely different . I don't think it's a hoax given all the multiple angles, but I still have my doubts. Awesome footage though.

it looks like adobe after effects to me. Its not that hard to get 4 or more people to all record something on their phones at the same time and then edit each film in the same manner. Also, the FPS on those phones cant keep up with the fluid motion of its escape. That escape is at a higher FPS and looks fluid unlike what you "Should" see on a camera phone.

this... That or it came in peace until some arab started trying to throw rocks at it and it decided to fly away.


Remember this though... real or not. Humans don't like things that make them feel vulnerable in any way. This will be dismissed.

Listen to the "mississippi" lady. Bad edit on the voice track IMO.

Yeah, it looks a bit too organic.

So the pixels are what did it? Not the fact that it is a UFO?

More proof that the average person wants to believe. But is naturally skeptical.

fake videos are fake
