A mysterious luminous object flew over Mount Merapi in Indonesia
On January 24, 2023, a mysterious luminous ball flew over the active volcano Merapi (Indonesia). A webcam monitoring the volcano captured this object.
The Indonesian Space Research Center said it was a Falconsat-3 satellite that burned up during re-entry into Earth’s atmosphere.
Netizens note that this does not look like a satellite entering the atmosphere at all, as the object is moving very slowly.
Others explained that it was a plane flying at that exact location during the sighting.
There are several theories as to what it could be, but without concrete proof, it’s hard to be sure. Some researchers believe it may have an extraterrestrial origin.
The sighting of a UFO above a volcano is a fairly common phenomenon, observed in different regions of the Earth. For example, we recently wrote about a resident of the Mexican city of Atlixco, who decided to photograph the Moon, but accidentally captured a UFO flying above the Popocatepetl volcano.
