An Italian photographer managed to capture photographs of a UFO phenomenon that went viral and sparked a multitude of theories. Scientists have also weighed in…
On the night of March 27th, a massive ring of red light, reminiscent of scenes from science fiction films, could be seen above central Italy and part of the Adriatic Sea, according to National Geographic. Other scientific portals around the world have also reported on the event.
“Creepy Red Ring of Light Flashes Like Giant UFO Above Italy. What Was It?” reads the Live Science headline.
Although the witness reports suggest that this phenomenon was short-lived, photographer Walter Binotto managed to capture photographs that went viral and sparked numerous theories.
Of course, the first among them is that it was caused by extraterrestrial activity, but a scientific explanation quickly emerged: The phenomenon is also known as an Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) light emission disturbance caused by electromagnetic impulses or ELVE for short.
In this case, the circle’s diameter was 360 km and represents a type of disturbance that occurs in the stratosphere or mesosphere due to intense electrification from thunderstorms. In other words, when lightning electromagnetic impulses hit the ionosphere in the upper parts of our planet, red light appears.
However, scientists have not explained how a single lightning strike could have an impact on a 360 km circle!? Additionally, scientists have not explained why this phenomenon, if natural, is not seen more regularly.
Furthermore, a theory has emerged that this is a test of the effects of secret NATO military weapons in this geographic area.
