Sky Watcher Films Glowing UFO Disappearing Over Area 51 [VIDEO]


Is the most famous secret base in America still tinkering with alien technology? According to a UFO chaser from Arizona, it might appear so.

On Wednesday, YouTube user DarkSkyWatcher77 posted a video of a strange anomaly that was filmed from a mountaintop in Kingman, AZ, a site overlooking the infamously secretive military installation known as Area 51. The footage shows a glowing blue object hovering over the base, only to disappear and re-emerge as a bright yellow sphere.

The skywatcher claims he observed the UFO for roughly half an hour from the mountain, a spot where he says the sightings come with a great frequency. He also thinks the strange object might be the planet Nibiru, and a few commenters have suggested that the labcoats at Area 51 are opening portals, but that’s for you to decide.


Have a look at the full video below and let us know what you think about the footage. Did DarkSky capture an experimental aircraft test, the visitation of something truly out of this world, or is there a more mundane (read: lamer) explanation for the sighting?

    There are all sorts of (terrestrial) crafts flying around Groom Lake (officially Nevada Test Site) and neighboring areas such as Tonopah, Edwards, Nellis etc.
    Recently aviation buffs spotted a number of F117 stealth fighters in the area: the aircraft are officially retired (with all of them “mothballed” in their hangars at Tonopah) but a small number of them is apparently still flying unofficially, most likely as test beds or “aggressors” in war games.

    Also the 2008 Needles, CA, “UFO Crash” was most likely an RQ170 operating out of Groom Lake or, more likely, Nellis, which suffered a catastrophic malfunction (aviation buffs feel the self-destruct system malfunctioned; it was later removed from all these drones), crashed near Needles and was quickly recovered by a crack salvage team.

    This video clip would need to be proven genuine first (not the result of manipulation or computer graphics programs) but even then it’s hardly proof of “aliens among us”. Some of the military technology “out in the open” is simply jaw dropping. The “Distributed Aperture System” developed by Northrop-Grumman for the F35 can not only pick up artillery fire on the ground but tell the pilot which type of gun is firing. In real time. Imagine what is going on behind closed doors.

    Ooh Greg speaking of trekkers amongst the stars I’ve thought of yet another way of bigging yourself up to the world.

    Forget James T.

    …well it’s better than my hero Nick the other rockstar of Fortea’s idea of having a socialist sex change and calling himself Red Fern!

    Kingman Arizona is a looong way from Groom Lake.
