UFO sighting: Mysterious orb above secretive US military space base sparks online frenzy

A bizarre UFO recorded flying over the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) sparked a social media frenzy this week. Footage shows a white, orb-shaped craft zooming around in the air above a wooded area close to the tightly-guarded and secretive NORAD base. The anonymous witness who filmed the small flying vessel said they saw UFO “while out on a walk”.

In the footage, the eyewitness recording the encounter can be heard saying: “Where is it? What the f*** is that?”

The UFO also appears to be making a mysterious rumbling sound as it hovers and moves around the sky.

The video was uploaded to YouTube by ET Data Base, a popular channel for UFO sightings, and set off a frenzy of theories about the object.

NORAD, at the centre of multiple conspiracy theories, is designed to warn the Pentagon and the White House in the event of a nuclear attack against the US.

The base is located inside Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado Springs, Colorado and was built to withstand a nuclear blast, with a bunker system situated 610 meters under the mountain, sealed off by massive concrete and steel blast doors.

Scott C Waring, who runs ET Data Base, wrote: “Here is a great example of a white cloud orb flying low in a cloudless sky.

“The orb has no way of hiding and is easily seen moving above the trees.

“The eyewitness states that a NORAD military station is nearby, but from what I have heard, NORAD is used to ignoring UFOs on the radar.

Another said the UFO resembled the “tic-tac” shaped object seen in the famous 2004 sighting of UFO by US Navy F/A-18s.

One alien enthusiast remarked that the flying object could be the result of new technology found from a crashed UFO.

A sceptic said: “Logically I would say it was a plane or helicopter but it looks round and white and the fact that it’s near a military base does make me think. A good sighting.”

In the final few seconds of the video, the orb appears to flicker before disappearing behind the trees.
