Iran, a country that has been in the news lately, is having a wave of incredible sightings of a "radiant," plasma-like UFO. This type of UFO was photographed in Ecuador around 20 years ago. UFOs are often seen near nuclear installations, which is why they are sometimes assumed to be sightings of military craft. The famous Roswell UFO crash in 1947 occurred near a military base that contained nuclear warheads.
In the Israel news, Yaakov Lappin quotes witnesses who describe the UFO being "as big as a ball, with a yellow ray and a bright reddish color in the center." They also stated that the object was flying "at a very low altitude" and emitted a "yellow ray."
The Iranian news agency FNA also reported a "UFO crash" last week. FNA reports that the crash was "followed by an explosion and a thick spiral of smoke" and that there was "thick smoke coming out of [the object] prior to the crash, [meaning] that the object couldn't have been a meteor as meteors do not smoke." However, meteors oftenleave visible smoke trails during daylight, but the smokerising from the ground after impact would be unusual for ameteor.
