Frames from a video of the spectacular SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket explosion at Cape Canaveral on September 1, 2016, captured an “anomaly” that some suspect may have caused the detonation of the rocket and destruction of its communications satellite payload. In the video frames, which came from a high-speed video source near the launch pad, you can clearly see an unidentified metallic, orb-shaped object approach the launch pad from the right and cross above the rocket before disappearing to the left of the frame. In the video source, the object moves so fast, it can barely be seen without slo-mo post processing.
Analysis of the SpaceX Falcon 9 UFO
In this first frame, the object can be seen about to pass behind the tower to the right of the SpaceX rocket.
As the unidentified object begins to pass over the rocket, the rocket ignites in a sharp flash. In the first few milliseconds of the flash-explosion, we can continue to track the object passing over Falcon 9.
As the orb passes behind the rocket, we can see the explosion continuing to build.
Finally, just as the object nears the edge of the video frame, we see the flames beginning to erupt from the ignition.
Below is a zoomed close-up of the object which reveals a clearly defined metallic orb-shaped object. Indeed, it does appear it could be a metallic balloon except (1) it travelled in a perfectly straight line and (2) it was moving several thousand miles per hour as it passed over SpaceX’s rocket.
The huge SpaceX rocket explosion blew apart the rocket during a pre-launch check, engulfing it in bright orange flames and clouds of thick black smoke.
The SpaceX Falcon 9 satellite payload
The payload aboard the SpaceX object was a communications satellite intended to provide network access to remote swaths of sub-Saharan Africa. Although pitched as a satellite to provide “poor Africans free Internet”, it was believed to be especially critical for global warming research coming from the area. The satellite, AMOS-6, was intended to replace the AMOS-5 satellite which unexpectedly lost communications in November 2015.
The project to deploy the satellite was financed by Facebook, Eutelsat, and Spacecom, an Israeli company that built the AMOS-6 communications satellite. Spacecom is currently being bought by China’s Xinwei group. The sale is rumored to be conditional upon the AMOS-6 satellite successfully entering service.
Is an alien presence interfering with global weather research?
In the midst of escalating military tensions and catastrophic global weather conditions, the incident comes on the heels of widespread reports from the conspiracy community of a ramped-up battle between rival military superpowers and increasingly common UFO sightings, particularly in the Antarctic region.
In an online discussion of the accident, one man said:
“The ETs don’t want us f***ing around in space. NASA are bunch of liars and this rocket probably had something on it that it should not have and they did not want it up in space.”
And Dr. Mike Johnson noted the cover-up has already begun:
“The press is already trying to debunk and cover this up!!!! We now have absolute proof of alien engineered craft not only visiting but observing and destroying a satellite launch….. This changes the entire world!!!!! Of course we don’t know exactly what these things are……but with high tech analysis of the footage and the explosion and any sensors that were there we can begin to understand how they function.”
Was the object a bird?
Detractors were quick to point out that the object was a bug flying near the camera or a bird flying around the launch pad. In response, one viewer explained:
“That would make sense except the fact that this object is actually behind the towers. Which means it is no where near close enough to the camera to visually effect it’s speed to this degree. And no bird can completely leave the scene before the initial explosion has even finished completion. We are talking milliseconds.”
SpaceX, a private firm, confirmed that NASA and the U.S. Air Force will join them in an investigation of the explosion.
