This week’s Turkish news sites report that a Turkish Airlines flight crew on May 10 witnessed a very bright, fast-moving object that appeared to move dangerously close to the aircraft before moving off at tremendous speed.
Pilot Atilla Senturk, whose phone video clip of the object can be seen in the video below, described it as a “incredibly bright celestial body at high altitude.”
“I did not see anything flying so fast,” the pilot said. “It was not a satellite or a star. Then it disappeared at an incredible speed. [It] was very close to us and very bright despite the sun.”
“Cabin supervisor Efsun Selin Sezer and First Officer Ozgur Erdas were [also] witnesses.”
Exactly what it was that the crew came across that day remains a complete mystery, though.
