Three supposedly mysterious lights drifted across Brooklyn after sundown on 3rd December, and an amateur video – shot from Prospect Heights – of the trio of moving lights prompted online speculation that the “sighting” is linked to a series of alleged “UFOs” hovering over major US cities.
Some believe these objects to be a prelude to the supposed destruction of the world on December 21 - the date Mayan apocalypse believers think the world will end.
“This is the second time in Brooklyn we’re seeing round orbs in the air. Look those two are in perfect formation right there! This is freaking me out …Unidentified flying objects again over Brooklyn,” the New York Daily news quoted one man as saying in the video.
According to astounded observers, who stood at the intersection of Vanderbilt Ave. and Dean St, “three orbs glowing like fire” were “flying in perfect formation.
The three alleged “UFOs” stopped in sync before disappearing.
“That’s not no Chinese f---ing lantern,” another person can be heard saying.
Some skeptics, on the other hand, would beg to differ. Amateur ufologists routinely mistake sky lanterns (airborne paper lanterns) for UFOs.
Another amateur cameraperson recorded an alleged “UFO sighting” in San Francisco’s Mission District in the early morning hours of December 9.
The lights supposedly coordinated motions added more credence to the pre-Mayan apocalypse sightings, in the eyes of some believers.
