Rainbow clouds spark UFO rumors

A ripple of iridescent lights in the sky sparked curious reactions from people who saw the spectacle. Some claimed the cloud formations looked like actual unicorns spouting rainbows that formed the unique light show. Some, were visibly alarmed and instantly thought of ‘alien invasion’ scenes. Is this a confirmed by NASA UFO Sighting? Or simply a natural phenomenon that can easily be explained?

People were naturally curious as to what the light show was all about and started making speculations on alien invation and UFO sighting, although technically, no unidentified object can be seen in the vid. According to this news, the light phenomenon is described in a NASA News thread as “An Iridescent Cloud Over Colorado”, the vivid clouds appear when tiny ice crystals and water droplets linger around multiple clouds in the sky. So it’s basically the rainbow spread across the sky.

Alien sightings

The internet is rife with various news of UFO or Alien sightings, and in fact, for 2016, almost 1000 UFO sightings have been reported in Canada alone. Some of the interesting stories include that of a man who woke up in a tub surrounded by three, green, bug-eyed creatures who communicated with him telepathically.

Interestingly, according to the 2016 Canadian UFO Survey — produced by Winnipeg-based Ufology Research and headed by Chris Rutkowski, only 4% of the sightings couldn’t be explained. This could be because of the fact that we now have many ways to determine if a sighting is authentic or not and can be proven at face value.

So what are these unexplained news? For one, there was the unexplained near collision of a commercial airplane in Toronto last Nov. 14, 2016.

According to this report: “The flight crew noticed an object directly ahead on their flight path. The object appeared to be solid, approximately five to eight feet in diameter and shaped like an upright doughnut or inner tube,” the study reported.

“Cabin crew members received minor injuries when evasive action was taken. While the object was not likely a balloon and was suggested to be a drone, it was noted that drones could not fly at that altitude and distance.”

The Transportation Safety Board ruled the incident as “a near collision with an unidentified airborne object.”
