Since New York City has become the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in the US, it has drawn a lot of attention. But it seems that the media and health officials may not be the only ones with their eyes on the Big Apple.
Coinciding with the skyrocketing number of cases of coronavirus in NYC, there has also been an increase in UFO sightings in the skies over Manhattan.
Most recently a Manhattan woman claimed to have spotted a strange UFO hovering over the area. According to the eyewitness, the mysterious object followed her as she was taking her dog for a walk.
The woman, who did not reveal her identity, reported her encounter via the UFO Sightings Daily blog. According to her, she took her dog out for a walk at around 8 o’clock p.m. on the evening of April 21, near the upper west side of New York City.
As she and her dog were walking down the street, she noticed a bright light in the sky. At first, she thought it was an airplane. However, after walking about half a block, she spotted the same bright object in the sky again.
According to the woman, the object did not appear to be moving in a specific direction. Instead, it seemed it was following her as she continued to take her dog for a walk. “I did half [a] block with my dog [and] I stopped again and noticed this light [moved into] position, but [it] was not going in a clear direction,” the woman stated according to UFO Sightings Daily. “When I [started] walking, I noticed this light [was] also moving. When I stopped, the light stopped parallel to me.”
The eyewitness noted that she observed the strange light by walking outside to see if it would still follow her. She said that wherever she went, the object moved in the same direction. The woman said she spent almost an hour walking outside her apartment to observe the strange light’s movements.
Although the video she took is not clear enough to help identify the strange object, it is possible that it was a drone being controlled by someone in the area. It is possible that the person controlling the drone was deliberately following the woman through a mounted camera as a form of a prank, or its movements were purely coincidental.
Various news outlets including CNN and The Hill have reported that drones are sometimes being used in the city to monitor the current lockdown status. Others however, speculate that it is not terrestrial authorities that are monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, but aliens, who themselves are responsible for the release of the virus, as some kind of precursor to invasion.
Interestingly enough, the increase in UFO sightings in the skies over New York City comes on the heels of the Pentagon recently confirming that three formerly classified videos taken by Navy pilots were officially interactions with “unidentified aerial phenomena.”
