- An unidentified flying object was spotted hovering over Lake Norman, near Charlotte on May 29 and it was captured on video
- Jason Swing recorded the object on camera calling it a ‘space craft’
- Video is shaky but it has some UFO enthusiasts excited he caught it on camera
- Meanwhile some conspiracy theorists believe it is an Advanced Military Aircraft
- The video has garnered over 150,000 views with people speculating what it is
- However the answer to the mystery of the hovering object may be more pedestrian than it seems at first glance
A video of an object hoovering eerily over North Carolina’s Lake Norman has UFO enthusiasts eager to deduce we are being visited by extraterrestrial beings, but perhaps there is a more grounded explanation.
The footage recorded by Jason Swing on May 29, is extremely shaky but when the video isn’t bouncing up and down it shows, clear as day, a large object that appears to be hovering in mid-air.
During the short clip Swing posted to YouTube he announces ‘This is a spacecraft.’ The clip is accompanied with a brief explainer of the video.
‘It had been raining all morning. Rain finally stopped so we went (to) pick up a boat from Lake Norman,’ Swing says in a post with the video. ‘When (I) came around the corner I saw this thing sitting still very close.’
The video has garnered over 150,000 views and then it received an additional boost in viewers when on Thursday the YouTube video channel ‘The Hidden Underbelly 2.0,’ a site focused on UFO and creature videos picked it up.
While some people were excited about the possibility of the large object being a UFO, others wondered if the government was behind the large flying object.
On commenter on The Hidden Underbelly 2.0 channel said: ‘I believe there are advanced Military Aircraft, in our skies. It’s amazing people don’t know how to use the video, and focus on their camera’s. They are pre programming the masses, EVERYTHING lately is about Aliens and UFO’s.’
They added ‘Anytime, MSM, TV shows, Movies, all of a sudden exposing the “ALIENS from a Planet in Outer Space Invasion” False Flag Alert! I have popcorn ready for this Grand Deception!’
Others were gravely disappointed in Swing’s shoddy camerawork, with on person saying, ‘I know three year olds that have a steadier hand. Unwatchable.’
And yet others were more realistic with their guess as to what this flying object could be, with some people, likely accurately guessing, it was the GoodYear Blimp.
GoodYear saw the video, and claims, as much as some wish it were a UFO, that the object seen in the shaky footage, is there blimp that was in the the Charlotte area on May 29, for NASCAR’s Coca Cola 600.
The GoodYear Blimp’s account shared: ‘We don’t want to get in the way of a good story, but that’s definitely us. We left the Charlotte area 5/29 after covering the Coke 600.’
North Carolina is also the home to multiple military bases, including Fort Bragg, Pope Air Force Base and Camp Lejeune Marine Corps facility.
The state is in the top 10 for ‘UFO’ sightings.
