"On the 16th of January 2017 a UFO was hit by lightning during a heavy thunderstorm in France. In the video you can see the moment of the lightning strike impacting the UFO. After the impact the object stays on it's trajectory for some time untill the propulsion shuts down and the object falls to the ground.
I made a short analysis of the video showing that the object that was hit by the lightning strike could not be a bird since the object kept flying horizontally for some time."


I was thinking it could be a ball lightning? I have never seen one, but on the other hand, it looks like something physical got hit.

It looks like voltage running down a power line.

Cool video no matter what it is.

Wow! What was that?

Very interesting video. I hope it is not fake.

You can see the lightning ⚡ strike something in the air and it starts falling to the ground with a trail of smoke behind it. The peoples reactions seem genuine too.

I hope the rest of ATS chimes in....

It appears something physical and flying airborn did get hit, otherwise it wouldn't be smoking after the lightning struck it. It's hard to see what the object is.

It is funny in the video they ask "would a bird do this?"...

Lol, no, and a bird would not create huge trail of smoke either. Whatever it is I think it is safe to rule out birds as a possibility.

Didn't see a UFO before the lightning strike so I'm thinking whatever was struck on the mountain left the mountain.

Unless it was a Pheonix.

Nice video!

About the propulsion going down..
If it had some speed then inertia would make it also follow its path for a few seconds.
So the "engines" could also be out at the moment of strike.

I guess no one went into the valley to check out if there is a crash site ?

Right, this is true, unless it was a phoenix.

Is there any reason it can't be a drone?

That seems plausible for sure.

Interesting. UFO in the literal unidentified sense, don't know if there's anything otherworldly about it.

Well that was a cool video. Seemed genuine, though no way to make out what the lightning hit. I would think someone from that video would have called it in or gone to see whatever crashed as it obviously went down.

France, yet everyone is speaking english? Where exactly was it taken? Why don't they give credit to the people who filmed it?

What was the time and location of this thunderstorm?

Most of France was under high pressure at the time and I am unaware of any thundery activity .... I am also curious about the lack of snow in what appears to be a mountainous region in mid winter during a spell of cold and snowy weather across most of Europe.

I very much doubt this footage - whatever it shows - was taken 2 days ago!

By the look of the spiralling, it could well be a drone that got a hit.

Lightning doesnt affect anything that gets hit in the air, It needs to go to ground to have any effect, Ordinary airplanes are hit daily with zero problems, Im not sure what happened in this video but a UFO or any metal object in the air would be unaffected.

I did not know this. Wouldn't the surface area of an airborne vehicle act as the ground?

In any case, this link contains some info and a really cool video of a plane being struck by lightning.

An bird on fire could.

Right, it was just pining for the fjords.

No it just travels round the outer skin and on down to ground, Exactly the same as a faraday cage. Theres loads of videos on youtube of planes getting hit.

Their pretty cool...
