The Cape Hatteras Light House is a very popular tourist destination. It seems that recently it may have attracted visitors from very far away. A local photographer, Wes Snyder, may have recorded a UFO buzzing by the famous landmark.
Snyder was taking time-lapse photos next to the beacon through the night of Jan.7.
He had no idea what he had captured at about 10:20 p.m. until he was editing the footage later. A flying object rocketed by in the distant sky in 16 frames for about three minutes before disappearing below the horizon.
Snyder has made it a mission to shoot time-lapse photos of all the iconic sites of the Outer Banks, such as lighthouses and Jockey’s Ridge. He’s been out all night on dozens of occasions. Snyder says that he has never seen any aircraft or meteor-like it.
“I honestly don’t have a clue what it was,” he told the local press. “Nothing I have shot has ever looked like this.”
So, what did Snyder capture? He posted the video on YouTube. Theories in Snyder’s comments ranged from fireballs (fast, bright meteors) to space junk to the International Space Station or ET’s who wanted to check out one of the Outer Banks’ most famous attractions.
“I have seen a lot of weird things on the coast at night,” one person commented.
2020 was a banner year for UFO sightings. The National UFO Reporting Center, which tracks calls and messages from people around the U.S. and Canada about strange sightings in the sky, reported that it received nearly 6,000 sightings in 2020 — a jump from about 4000 the previous year.
As we enter 2021, it seems like the trend is continuing.
