Mystery bright orb appears and vanishes in a second.
As storm clouds gathered over Oak Park, Illinois, on the evening of July 13, an individual, videotaping an impressive display of heat lightning, also captured something else streaking through the field of view.
The image above shows a bright, glowing object quickly enter the left side of the video in front of — rather than behind — a tree. This thing moves swiftly down and to the right, disappearing from view.
The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) — a nonprofit group that documents and investigates global UFO sightings — is not yet releasing the name of the witness. The case is listed as No. 68838 in the MUFON database.
“I was shooting video of a storm cloud emitting heat lightning from our back porch,” the witness stated in the July 31 case report. “When I viewed the video I saw a streak of light that I cannot explain or rationalize.”
The dramatic intensity of the heat lightning display in Illinois on July 13 can be seen in the following video that’s being scrutinized by MUFON investigators. The unusual orb-like object enters the scene at the 19-second mark:
