A UFO – an orange ball of light that hurtled through the Calderdale night – has caused something of a stir.


I cant get the video to work, is it working for anyone else ?

yeah video get a box come up on the left side and you right click to choose full screen.

Dunno about the vid?
We have the roof of a house as a reference point, then he moves the camera and it becomes jerky...

Also, the ball replicating is interesting but could be something he's doing... not sure?

Interesting video but not alot of footage released. would be nice to see the whole thing. I still don't know why people only get like 10 seconds of a video. It seems we never get to see it leave or disappear. Though I have no evidence to label it a hoax it always throws a red flag up in my opinion.

edit to remove link that doesn't work

Hmmm. What interests me is that the light appeared to be single (maybe a Chinese floating latern or something) but all of a sudden it breaks up into two lights..


Here is the video

Just watched it again...

He zooms in and right then the light separates into two and quickly moves apart...

This may actually be something. Let´s see what the skeptics crew has to say...

the video freezes halfway into the show but this is one picture showing the UFO after it spilts up into two.

I wonder why the video is messed up though.

Ive emailed the courier to ask if there is any more footage available. Probly wont reply till tomorow though.

If the split was witnessed by whoever he's talking to I think it rules out Chinese lanterns provided they weren't launched simultaneously with one obscuring the other. As one of them loses altitude it would look like a split. Equally, presuming the white-balance of the camera is correct, most Chinese lanterns I've seen have been red. But I'm not an expert on Chinese lanterns. White ones could be available.

A possibility (among many other less exotic ones ) is that it could be an aircraft launching another aircraft. Like a D-21. It doesn't look fast enough though and the altitude drops would be odd.

Another possibility is someone debarking a helicopter via rope with a flash light. Without estimating distance I would think it would be audible on the film though.

What they'd be doing over Halifax is another question.

So, I don't know. Looking at the area:


There's a few places to launch anything without people necessarily seeing you.

that was just way too quick

I'd like to liken it to something but I'm concerned I'd get slapped with another 1000 ATS point penalty

Mytholmroyd, hebden bridge, and sowerby bridge are all no more than a few miles apart.

Okay bear with me here,I've seen a few of these,herky jerky,lights in the sky videos

and until now I've never wondered why Galactic Travelers and their mysterious craft don't exhibit more stable purposeful flight patterns

now I'm thinking could this thing be a bug? or two bugs mating?

I ask because this is exactly what bug flight looks like

some bugs are luminescent ,I dunno

I've actually seen a yellow light of unknown nature the size of a basketball that kept "orbiting" a tree branch.

IMO the light does not move (looking at the rooftop), it only appears to move when the zooming begins, and the light splitting is perfectly synced to the zoom, suggesting camera trick. IMO Venus, or other bright celestial object.

The only way to account for the split of a celestial object like Venus is if there was a reflection in the lens or a filter. If the split was witnessed by more than one person (e.g. not just the person looking through the viewfinder) then it rules that out.

I found an interesting post in a thread called "Sky Lanterns Research Project", made by IsaacKoi. I think this information is worth to be taken into consideration as a possible explanation for the "splitting UFO". I have highlighted some of the post in bold letters:

"The prank balloon, distinguished from other balloon types by virtue of its home-made construction, usually consists of a transparent, lightweight plastic laundry bag with birthday candles propped at its base by drinking straws, wires, or balsa wood struts. When the candles are lit, the hot air makes the bag rise. The fourteen reports in this study usually reported the duration of perceived flight from one to fifteen minutes. Apparent size was usually restricted to ‘1’ or ‘2’. Descriptions of shape were usually confined to ‘orange point’, ‘dome’, ‘orange sparks’, ‘red, round’, ‘football-shaped’, etc. Once up in the air, the candlelight reflecting off parts of the plastic bag created the illusions of those shapes. In an older case, preceding this study, a witness to one of these balloon launches thought he was looking at a man in a white helmet standing upright in a cylinder. The most common symptom of the prank balloon is the dropping of candle wax from its base coupled with the eventual burn-out of the balloon itself; this manifested itself as:

‘burning metal dropping straight down toward the end’ – case 196
‘three drops of light (and it) extinguished’ – case 471
‘plummeted straight down for three seconds leaving a trail of burning embers’ – case 524
‘disintegrated to ash’ – case 872
‘flared out in three seconds while dropping’ - case 991
‘sputtering flame droplets’ – case 1,067"
