Mysterious dark vertical line appears in British sky

A mysterious black line in the sky over Folkestone, England, sparked curiosity and confusion among the locals who witnessed it, reports

The vertical line, which seemed to stretch from the ground to beyond the clouds, was captured on camera by a woman who said she had to check if her eyes were playing tricks on her.

The bizarre sight occurred on Wednesday morning and lasted for several minutes before disappearing.

The woman, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “The line went up as far as the eye could see. It went way past the clouds and I honestly have no idea what it could be. It was such a straight line so it obviously wasn’t smoke from a crash or something like that.”

A meteorologist who examined the photo ruled out any natural explanation for the phenomenon, saying it was “definitely not any type of cloud.” He also noted that the line appeared to cut through the clouds, indicating that “it was not an optical fault.”

Some people have suggested that the line could be the shadow of a contrail, which is the trail of condensed water vapor left by a jet engine. However, this theory does not explain why the line was so dark and vertical, and why it did not dissipate quickly.

Another possible explanation is that the line was a sign of extraterrestrial activity. Some UFO researchers have documented cases of triangular-shaped craft that hover silently in the sky and sometimes emit beams of light or dark matter.

These craft are believed to be either secret military projects or alien vehicles conducting surveillance or scanning missions. One such case occurred in Florida in 2013, when a similar black line was seen in the sky and attributed to a triangular UFO.

Could the black line in Folkestone be related to these mysterious triangles? Or is there another explanation for this strange anomaly? Until more evidence emerges, the mystery remains unsolved.

  1. I worked with UFO researcher Ed Grimsley for nearly ten years. We use military grade third generation PVS-7 night vision goggles to see UFO craft every clear night. It is extremely busy up there is the 75 to 300 mile range of space above us. Some areas have average sightings of about 75 per hour while viewing a sky as large as the canopy you see above you in all directions. You can do this with five or more pairs of goggles.
    I have seen the black line on three occasions. Once was while two short chemtrails were laid side by side by a craft that then left the area in the blink of an eye. There was no noise. Only the black line begins at that point and extends past the horizon. Reach me at – Bob Oliver 831 383-2676
