Is This Really A UFO Over Iceland?
Recently some footage of a supposed UFO was uploaded to YouTube. The video is of an unidentified fiery object coming down and landing squarely in the town of Akureyri, Iceland.
The 43-second-clip shows a fireball suddenly appearing in the sky and heading steadily downwards before vanishing in a populated neighborhood.
According to the uploader Bjarki Mikkelsen, the event took place on 29 September, 2013 and was shot by a live webcam overlooking the city.
Although Mikkelsen himself thinks it might be some sort of a scientific experiment, speculations are rife about the unidentified flying object.
“It’s not a helicopter or a plane, clear to see. I have had the opportunity to believe it is a kind of drone. The ball lands in a garden and you can see that it is as if there is a fire in a short time just after it landed or dropped.”
But what is this UFO really?
I am betting that this is just a small meteor coming down over the city and that it burns up quite close to the ground. I say this primarily because the object moves in a straight line and uniform speed the whole way down and just fades out at the end. If this had been a solid object of that size, I’m betting someone would have noticed it landing in their yard.
