In one of the most chilling UFO-related incidents of the year, a series of ominous lights have been seen by numerous witnesses in Turkey Sunday night, fuelling fears that a possible extraterrestrial attack might soon be taking place. The mysterious objects, which were very similar in appearance to the famous Phoenix Lights incident back in 1997, have been sighted by witnesses all over the Middle Eastern country, resulting in the hashtag #ufoattacktoturkey immediately trending on Twitter. What was particularly disturbing, however, was the fact that Twitter immediately started removing photos and tweets related to the incident hours after the hashtag trended.
Despite the apparent Twitter censorship, however, the incident has captured the attention and interest of the whole world, with thousands of netizens reposting and sharing images and videos on social media. UFO analysts have weighed in on the mass sighting, with many expressing apprehension due to the content of some videos that were uploaded by witnesses online. While some of the accounts from Turkey simply describe a conventional, harmless UFO sighting, others seemed to suggest that something far more ominous was taking place.
One of the most notable ones was uploaded by Eren Dogan, who uploaded a video allegedly taken after the lights were spotted in Turkey's sky. After a few seconds, a loud bang reminiscent of an explosion was heard, almost as if something was fired and detonated. While the validity of the video is currently being questioned by skeptics, it does, nonetheless, provide an idea behind the events of Sunday night.
