American Airlines Passenger Flies Near Area 51, Sees Something Odd, Captures It On Camera (Photos)

An American Airlines passenger claims to have caught a spooky image of a UFO near the top-secret Area 51 military base the day before Halloween (pictures below).

The photographer noticed a strange, “blinding bright light” on his flight from San Jose, California, to Houston as the plane was flying near Luning and Gabbs, and quickly snapped photos of a giant metallic disc in the Nevada desert.

The passenger, who remains anonymous, informed the Mutual UFO Network, known as MUFON, which investigates extraterrestrial sightings in the U.S., about the finding, according to Daily Mail.

“I was on an American Airlines flight from San Jose, Ca to Houston, TX on Oct. 30, 2015 when I noticed a blinding bright light in the desert near Luning and Gabbs, NV. I saw a large silver disc that appeared to be in the middle of the desert. This disc was shooting orb like lights into the air. The disc itself had multiple lights that were blinding to the eyes. I pulled out my phone and took pictures until my phone died. No other passengers seem to notice the disc or comment on it. Upon my return home; I asked multiple Air Force employees if they have ever seen anything like this and all replied never. Initially I thought it was a satellite but now leave it up to your interpretation. What the hell did I witness?”

He said none of his fellow passengers nor the captain said anything about the sighting and the plane flew on until the disc was out of sight.

In 2013, the U.S. government disclosed the presence of the off-limits military base in the southern Nevada desert for the first time.

Scott C. Waring, editor of UFO Sightings Daily told The Express:

“This disc formation on the ground does have the appearance of a landed UFO on the ground. Gabby is about 140 miles southwest of Area 51. The person caught a cloaked (hidden) UFO in the area. The metallic of the UFO is partly exposed and I’m sure it wasn’t for long. This UFO is partly cloaked to look like the surrounding area. Some cloaks make UFOs appear as clouds, others invisible, this one…is trying to blend in with the surroundings.”

According to UFO legends, Area 51 is used by the U.S. Air Force as a secret base to conduct experiments on new technology.

The most famous conspiracy asserts that in 1947, aliens in a flying saucer crashed near Roswell, New Mexico, and were taken to Area 51 as part of a major government smokescreen.

Some say it could be the Nellis AFB Solar Farm, which is near where the pictures were taken.

MUFON has purportedly categorized the sighting as “unresolved.”
