Spiraling 'UFO' Was Probably a Russian Missile


www.space.com

A spiraling ball of light spotted in the night sky above the Middle East Thursday evening was probably a ballistic missile being tested by the Russian military, rather than a visitor from outer space.

The glowing light's smoky, swirling descent was witnessed by people in Israel, Lebanon, Armenia, Turkey, Cyprus, Jordan and other Middle Eastern countries, and footage of the event quickly appeared on YouTube.

Well, I don't know if much of this "Spiral UFO" footage got posted here on ATS but I have been interested in it for a bit.

Here is a video of the object above Syria. The footage and text is all in Arabic but you can get the idea:



The article claims that the object is most likely a Russian missile that malfunction and spun out of control. However, it also claims that Russian sources claimed the rocket DID, in fact, hit its target. Although, I would not be surprised to hear Russians lying about the success rate of their military.

The article also states:


The glowing light's smoky, swirling descent was witnessed by people in Israel, Lebanon, Armenia, Turkey, Cyprus, Jordan and other Middle Eastern countries, and footage of the event quickly appeared on YouTube.


Even from the souther-most part of Russia, Syria is still a good distance away. I'm not exactly sure where Russia was aiming with this missile but to hover above Syria sounds like a pretty extreme "malfunction".

As far as it being an "alien spacecraft".. I can't really see it. it just doesn't look like an efficient form of space craft. But then again, what do I know about possible alien space travel? Other witness in Syria claim that it is a good omen regarding the revolution taking place, other say it is ill.

Thoughts?

P.S. The article's main source of 'debunking' comes from a member of MSNBC. No offense to any watchers of them, but..... yeah... enough said.

Hm. I searched before I posted but couldn't find anything of substance.

This is extremely similar to the spiral over Norway back in 2009, and the even more impressive UFO and accompanying vortex that was caught on a weather-cam by theweatherspace.com as well as from other vantage points in May of 2010. Especially after viewing the Canada footage, the idea that these phenomena are a byproduct of a missile launch just doesn't hold water.

Yes, similar to the Russian missile launch which was seen in Norway.

The Canada spiral is an obvious and confirmed hoax.

I'm not convinced that the Canada incident was a hoax. The alleged hoaxer, Kevin Martin, retracted his hoax statement, basically saying that he claimed to have created the hoax to get attention:
SOURCE

Martin has retracted his statement. "I came forward to put this to rest, but I hoaxed that I actually created the hoax", he said. "Something did happen that night. Whether the video is fake or not the photos look convincing. Having your name out there is fun at times, but no more."


Additionally, the event was captured from two different cameras from two different vantage points. If it was a hoax, it wasn't camera trick or CGI; it would have to have been some tangible object or lighting effect that actually occurred.

Please review the linked thread.
It is an obvious hoax. (and Kevin Martin is a fraud on a number of levels)

I've noticed a disinformation pattern in incidents where there are at least two independent sources, which are ignored when an easily established fake conveniently pops up.

And yet, no such thing occurred with the Norway spiral.

All of the videos of the "Canada spiral" are pathetically obvious CGI.

Either that, or a weather balloon, or swamp gas, or something...you know, just not a UFO.

Does anyone find it strange that Russian missles are all of a sudden "spiraling out of control" within the last few years?
Why now?
Have there been consistent reports like this from the 70s 80s & 90s?

Wouldn't Israel be blowing Russia to smithereens for "test" firing an ICBM at them?

Does Russia just have a sh*tty batch of ICBMs they're trying to get rid of?

Russia claims:

"Mysterious light explained. Russia announces it carried out successful inter-continental ballistic missile test."


Then we are told:

"It most likely spun out of control and its remnants and the fuel was what people saw,"


ehrm, that doesn't seem "successful" to me.
But hey, I'm stupid.

UFO over Middle East is Russian rocket

The rocket was not fired at Israel, it was fired at the target range in Russia. Far to the northeast.

No. They have new missiles (with supposedly new technology) which they test from time to time. The same way the US does, like this: www.vandenberg.af.mil...


hrm, that doesn't seem "successful" to me.
Know a lot about rocketry, do you?
Dr. Yigal Pat-El also said at first that it reached an altitude of 80km. Dr. Yigal Pat-El does not seem to be one to talk to about rocketry. A spinning third stage does not indicate a failure. For example, the Falcon 9:

No. It was swamp gas.

then I misunderstood the rocket being seen by Israelis as it actually flying "over" them when they witnessed it, as opposed to simply seeing it in the distance.

That makes sense. Are you aware of this "spiraling" phenomenon consistently and regularly taking place over the years prior to 2005? Or have we been made more aware of it because the rockets made since then are more prone to result in this spiraling behavior?


Know a lot about rocketry, do you?


No. I wouldn't be asking these questions if I did.
Besides, I already said I was stupid.

1) Yes.
2) We have been made more aware of it because of the internet and youtube in particular.

The new Bulava-30s seem really prone to spinning out. What one would be doing as far south as Lebanon I'm not sure, but they'd be the same as the one in Norway in 2009.

The Bulava is a submarine launched missile.
This one was a Topol M, launched from southern Russia to Kazakhstan.
