An Ohio couple captured a UFO on video hovering among the clouds over a nearby Air Force installation, and video of the strange encounter has gone viral, the Daily Mail is reporting.
The couple was filming the sunset from their home near Dayton last Wednesday night when they caught the strange object, which appears to be shaped unlike any known aircraft and may or may not have strange markings on its side (or those “markings” could simply be parts of the craft that appear to the human eye as markings).
The sounds of shock and confusion can be heard from the couple video-recording the UFO.
“What the f**k is that? What the… it looks like it’s moving with the clouds! That’s f**king crazy.”
Then, the UFO seems to disappear behind the clouds and out of view.
The footage of the UFO has since come to the attention of UFO enthusiasts “secureteam10,” which describes itself as “the research team bringing exposure of the alien phenomenon and those trying to hide it back to the masses!”
Team spokesperson Tyler Glockner can be heard on the video explaining how clips like the Ohio UFO footage make his job exciting.
“It’s days like this that I am so thankful to be able to operate a channel like this where we can get footage like this out, and I gotta tell you guys, I think we have a.. I think we’ve got a live one here!”
Glockner then goes on to explain that the Ohio UFO was also seen by “other sources.”
So, what’s going on in the UFO video captured above?
The fact that the video was shot in Dayton, about 10 miles away from Ohio’s Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, seems to play a role. Wright-Patterson, like other Air Force bases, has been the site of multiple UFO sightings over the years, going back as far as 1947.

In fact, according to the U.S. Air Force’s top-secret Project Blue Book (a compendium of UFO sightings and the results of the investigations into them), Wright-Patterson has been the site of 12,618 UFO sightings between 1947 and 1969 alone. 701 of those sightings were concluded as “unidentified.”

Of course, Wright-Patterson isn’t the only Air Force Base to be the site of UFO sightings. In fact, one of the most well-documented UFO cases in history took place just a few miles from southwest Illinois’ Scott Air Force Base.
On January 5, 2000, according to UFO Evidence, beginning at about 4:00 a.m., multiple individuals, including civilians as well as police from multiple nearby Illinois towns, saw — and even tracked and followed — a UFO. The object was described by multiple witnesses as black, roughly triangular, and having multiple lights that appeared to be windows along its side.
The Air Force has not commented on the events of that morning.
The UFO sightings would tend to occur near military installations makes sense, whether you’re a skeptic or a believer. To UFO believers, alien visitors could be using Air Force bases to travel to and from our planet. Or, as Glockner suggests, perhaps the military is “back engineering” alien spacecraft and testing them.
If you’re a skeptic, there’s another reason why UFO sightings happen near Air Force bases: the military is testing [non-alien] aircraft for use in possible future military endeavors. And the reason the military is so hush-hush and secretive about the sightings is that sensitive military technology is, well, secret.
Do you think the Ohio UFO video shows an alien spacecraft?
