In Argentina, a group of friends went for a leisurely walk in nature, deciding to enliven their time with a game of volleyball. When one of them intended to capture the match on film, an unexpected twist occurred: a high-speed UFO appeared, streaking across the sky behind the trees.

One of the friends, choosing a playful approach, deliberately recorded a video in slow motion to demonstrate the intricate details of performing another friend's trick — hitting the ball with his head. If they had been shooting at normal speed, the fleeting UFO would most likely have gone unnoticed because it would have flown too fast.

The video quickly gained popularity on the Spanish-speaking Internet, prompting immediate skepticism. Critics have offered an alternative explanation, suggesting that the unidentified object was not a UFO, but just a fast-flying bird.

However, opposing this view, supporters argued that in order to be a bird, it must be very large, similar to an eagle. Moreover, eagles do not usually move along such fast trajectories unless they are diving for prey.

Proponents of the UFO theory have argued that such high-speed phenomena may be commonplace above us and elude detection due to the limited number of cases where people take videos outdoors.

They believe that these fast objects are present in the sky, but they are rarely recorded, given that there are relatively few people who often take videos outdoors.

Original news

In Argentina, a group of friends ventured into nature for a leisurely outing, deciding to spice up their time with a game of volleyball. As one of them aimed to capture the match on film, an unexpected twist unfolded when a high-speed UFO made an appearance, streaking across the sky behind the trees.

One of the friends, opting for a playful approach, deliberately recorded the video in slow motion to showcase the intricate details of another friend executing a trick—hitting the ball with his head. Had they filmed at regular speed, the fleeting UFO would likely have gone unnoticed, as it would have zipped by too quickly.

The footage swiftly gained traction on the Spanish-speaking Internet, triggering immediate skepticism. Critics proposed an alternative explanation, suggesting the unidentified object was not a UFO but merely a swiftly flying bird.

However, countering this notion, proponents argued that for it to be a bird, it would have to be notably large, akin to an eagle. Furthermore, eagles typically don’t traverse such rapid trajectories unless they are diving for prey.

Supporters of the UFO theory maintained that such high-speed phenomena might be a regular occurrence above us, escaping detection due to the limited instances of people capturing videos outdoors.

They believe these rapid objects are present in the sky but seldom get recorded, given that individuals who frequently film videos in outdoor settings are relatively few.

Beetles and other insects

Flying insects in photos and videos can be mistaken for UFOs.

Shooting can take place in the daytime or in the evening. When moving, the outlines of the insect can be both blurred and clear. Depending on this, dark spots or spots of bizarre shapes can be taken for UFOs. The video shows UFOs hovering in the sky, flying in a straight line or moving along a complex trajectory (for example, shooting May bugs near a tree against the background of the evening sky). Insects can be mistaken for UFOs by accident, or given out intentionally. At night, they can be highlighted by a flash.


Due to the peculiarities of the bird's flight, it is possible to capture a moment in the photo when an ordinary bird will resemble a "classic" UFO in shape.


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

Most likely, these are birds or insects flying relatively close to the camera. On frame-by-frame viewing, you can see that the object overlaps mountains, trees and other elements of the landscape, which means it moves closer to them.

When the object first appears in the frame, you can notice the characteristic shape of the "skyfish", i.e. the movement of the wings.

Proximity to the camera may explain the object's speed.
