The video “UFO / s over La Meridian Hotel in Charlotte NC” shows many small bright lights that flicker over the hotel in North Carolina, USA and even seem to form a triangular formation at one point.
C Hulbert, who filmed and uploaded it on his cell phone, has no idea what he recorded but believes it may be related to aliens.
In the video, which has been viewed more than 250,000 times, he can be heard talking to another man about what happened.
He said, “I’ve never seen anything like it.
“Whatever they are, they move like fireflies, but they’re really high in the air.”
His companion said: “At first I thought they were flares, like those from a helicopter, like a stray beacon, but they move very strangely.”
Commenting on the video, Mr. Hulbert said, “Thanks for the comments folks. I’ve always believed in this stuff, just never thought I’d have an encounter.
“It was definitely great and a little bit freaky at the same time.
“Hopefully I’ve given you guys something solid to look at and possibly answer questions, even though I had no idea what WTF I was looking at.
“Madness. I just hope that they are friendly … but then again. “
The video is of poor quality and some skeptics have said it could have been due to the Orionid meteor showers and high cloud cover, both of which were happening at the time of recording.
Meteor showers and thick clouds are known to create strange visual effects.
