A 30-year-old YouTube user from Spain, ToniAmazing7
, posted a UFO video
online with a title that indicated that the video was recorded somewhere over Spain on July 8, 2012. Unfortunately, those claims have turned out to be untrue. The video was actually recorded at least one month ago, allegedly in Iraq, making this another case of recycled UFO
video footage. If you haven't seen it yet, it is still worth a look regardless of where and when it was actually recorded.
The video shows an extraordinarily bright line in the sky that gradually opened into a sphere with a cone-shaped tip. The cone and sphere both eventually dissipated as if they were made of smoke, but they left behind a bright, spiral-shaped trail
in the dark sky that lingered indefinitely. In the past, some spiral-shaped unidentified flying objects
have been attributed to failed missile launches.
The video actually appears to be turned 180 degrees so the horizon is shown vertically along the right side of the image. That means the UFO
in the video
was actually moving straight up from the ground, not horizontally across the sky as it seems at first glance.
