Timelapse video of the California desert unexpectedly captures a strange zig-zagging UFO in the night sky

// January 22nd, 2013 // News


A timelapse video of California’s Death Valley desert during the Geminid Meteor Shower in December 2012, produced a surprising find when the video producers took a look at the timelapse results the next day. The “UFO” in this video, which appears as a bright zig-zagging light, makes three broad circular sweeps through the night sky over the darkened desert.

According to the video producers:

“Though in timelapse it appears to be moving fast, consider the 5 seconds = about 50 minutes, so it’s creeping. There was no sound, so it definitely wasn’t a helicopter.”

Sunchase Pictures shot the video of Death Valley’s remote Eureka Dunes during the Geminid Meteor Shower peak in mid-December 2012.  The original 3-minute timelapse video of the desert is truly beautiful (see it here). It was shot with two DSLRs and condenses every 50 minutes into every 5 seconds of video. The result is a stunning view of the night sky capturing a few meteors zipping through air and a truly mysterious zig-zagging UFO that nobody has yet been able to explain.

In the video below, almost halfway into the video, watch the middle-left side of the night sky to spot the UFO making a couple of passing sweeps through the sky.
