    Israel Shoots Down UFO Over Nuclear Power Plant

    Israeli Officials Still Uncertain: What was Shot Down Over Nuclear Power Plant in the Negev Desert?

    Saul Relative, Yahoo! Contributor Network
    Dec 16, 2010 "Share your voice on Yahoo! websites. Start Here."


    A rather eye-catching piece of news was reported Thursday with regard to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and the downing of what appears to be an actual UFO, an unidentified flying object. It remains a UFO due to the fact that the flying object has yet to be identified. At present, according to media sources like CNN, the IDF has been unable thus far to find debris of whatever it was they shot down. According to the IDF, the Israeli Air Force shot the unidentified flying object from the sky above the Dimona nuclear power plant in the Negev Desert. The air force was scrambled as soon as the object appeared in the no-fly zone that exists around the Dimona plant. The IDF said that the air force reacted according to procedure.


    The IDF has speculated that the UFO "could have been a party balloon."
    According to CNN, there were also unconfirmed reports that the object was motor-driven.
    It is reporting on incidents such as this in just this manner that prompts the conspiracy theorists and UFO enthusiasts and researchers toward imaginative speculation and accusation, then crying "cover-up" when further information is withheld or not forthcoming (regardless of the reason). And there appears to be no need, except perhaps to add a little more excitement to the story, because sources much closer to the event provided a much less ambiguous picture of what occurred and what the object actually was.


    Israel National News (INN) noted that the object entered Israeli airspace from Jordan, from the southern Dead Sea. Although INN says that the object was "thought to be a balloon," they also report that the Israeli Air Force said "the balloon was unmanned and that this was verified before it was shot down."


    A balloon. Unmanned. Identified by the IDF. It seems straightforward.
    Not "could have been." No alluding to other reports that the UFO was "motor-driven."
    The CNN piece is not straightforward, leaving room for all sorts of speculation as to what manner of aircraft the UFO might have been. The fact that the Israel Defense Forces have been unable to find debris only adds to the mystery of the object. That the unidentified flying object entered a no-fly zone, not to mention the IDF shooting the object down, adds a sinister aspect to the story.


    Of course, the INN article may have been written with an intent to mislead, as some will no doubt claim. Keeping its content more toward a definitive explanation leaves less room for imaginative conjecture. However, it will not eliminate it.
    The Israel National News article was posted at 4:34 p.m., which equates to 9:34 a.m. in the Eastern United States. CNN posted their article at 12:35 p.m., three hours after the story identifying the flying object had been published by INN. But CNN's article does not mention that the object had been "verified" as a balloon by the IDF.


    Same story, both told with an ambiguous title teaser. One leaving a lot of room for speculation. One providing an answer, which is saddled with the a question of believability (because when has a government been above obfuscation, misdirection, and outright lying in what they deem national interest?).
    In the end, it comes down to: Something was shot down over a Negev Desert nuclear power plant Thursday. It seems to have been a balloon, the debris of which has not as yet been located. What it was not was "unidentified." So, unless one is a distrustful conspiracy theorist or UFO researcher skeptical of any government explanation, Thursday's incident seems to be nothing more than an interesting aside on a slow news day.

    The video shows a bird. You can see the wings flap.

    That's not a bird. It's a white laser dot. The only flapping is from your mind.

    I hunt migratory game birds. You often are trying to spot them against a blank sky. Being able to see the wing beat of the tiny dots as they come into view will often identify the species. This is a skill I have developed over 4 decades of experience. When a layman still can't see the birds that just barely came into view I am identifying the species by their wing beat rhythm. Trust me it is a bird.
