Initial data

Initial information from sources or from an eyewitness
Source date: 
United Kingdom

A UFO in the form of a white elongated object (similar to a tic-tac jelly bean) was filmed over an unknown cornfield.


List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence

Balloon/Weather Balloon

The balloon (simplified is a balloon) — an aircraft lighter than air, where the lift force is used enclosed in a sheath gas (or heated air) with a density less than the density of the surrounding air.

Distinguish between tethered, Svobodnaya and balloons — powered airships.

Cloud (natural and man-made)

Clouds are the products of condensation of water vapor suspended in the atmosphere, visible in the sky from the surface of the earth. They consist of tiny drops of water and/or ice crystals (called cloud elements).


Parallax (from the Greek. parallaxis – evasion) – change in the apparent position of any of the object relative to a background when you change viewing angle.

Airplane / Helicopter

An aircraft heavier than air for flights in the atmosphere (and outer space (e.g. An orbital aircraft)), using the aerodynamic lift of a glider to keep itself in the air (when flying within the atmosphere) and the thrust of a power (propulsion) installation for maneuvering and compensating for the loss of total mechanical energy to drag. 

A rotorcraft in which the lift and thrust required for flight are created by one or more main rotors powered by an engine or several engines. They differ in maneuverability, the ability to hover and almost vertical takeoff.


Versions testing, their confirmation or refutation. Additional information, notes during the study of materials

Based on the appearance and the moment of disappearance, it can be an airplane (we see only a short condensation trail to the area where the plane stops leaving it) or a balloon (balloon), which bursts at some point.

The movement of the object may not be felt due to the direction of movement of the object, its speed, as well as the movement of the car from which the shooting was conducted.

Unfortunately, the date and location of the shooting are not specified, which makes it difficult to verify hypotheses. We indicated the approximate date of publication of the video, and also indicated the UK as the location of the shooting, since the eyewitnesses speak English. This will be replaced as soon as more accurate information can be found.

It is not possible to estimate the size of the object or the distance to it, since it is located in the open sky and does not cover any element of the landscape.

It seems strange that the object disappears at the end. However, he disappears 4 times during the video:

  • 0:20 loses brightness when intersecting with reflection in glass
  • 0:20 presumably when the focus on the object is lost
  • 0:21 when you lose focus, because all elements of the image lose focus
  • 0:29 is already final

Also, at 0:13 seconds, his image splits when it intersects with the reflection in the glass.

Thus, the disappearance may be due to a change in the illumination of the object (loss of bright glare during reflection) or also a change in camera focus.
