A TIKTOK video showing a supposed ‘genuine UFO sighting’ is going viral.
The video was captured yesterday in New Jersey and shows a strange orb floating in the sky.
The unidentified flying object looks just how you would expect a flying saucer to look in a film.
The footage was uploaded by TikTok user @Elvin_jku14.
The person filming can be heard saying: “Everybody stopped to see the aliens.”
The video was captured from a car on a busy highway in the US.
The sighting is probably a blimpCredit: TikTok
Lots of beeping can be heard.
The person filming adds: “I don’t know if that’s true or not but everyone has blocked the highway.”
Other footage of the same myserteous object is also appearing online.
However, it seems the UFO could actually just be the Goodyear Blimp with its neon sign displaying a message.
The Blimp is commonly used to advertise sporting events and does look quite alien like to people who aren’t used to seeing it.
Lots of people are taking to Twitter to argue the Goodyear Blimp point.
Others are still certain it’s a genuine alien sighting.
Fermi Paradox – what is it?
Here’s what you need to know…
- The Fermi Paradox isn’t strict evidence for alien life – but more of a thought experiment
- It’s a famous contradiction posed by physicist Enrico Fermi
- Fermi suggested that the enormous size of the universe – and the billions of Sun-like stars in the galaxy, and their planets – makes it highly likely that there is intelligent life out there
- Some of these civilisations may have developed interstellar travel
- But Fermi also noted that there’s a significant lack of evidence for life on other planets
- The chances of aliens being able to reach us are high, but there’s no evidence that aliens ever have
- This paradox has baffled scientists for decades
