A strange, mystery object was recently filmed over Southern California, during which a second object appears to have separated from it an altogether unusual display of aerial phenomena.

YouTube user Ken Roberts managed to film the object when he spotted it passing overhead. As he began filming the unidentified object, a strange, second object separated from it and began moving in the opposite direction.

“I was driving home after work when this UFO or whatever you call it caught my eye,” he wrote in a post along with his video on his YouTube page:

“I pulled over in front of somebody’s house to film it. I would have got a better shot but I didn’t want to jump these peoples fence. Anyway I don’t know what the hell to make of it. Couldn’t have been a plane cause there was no noise.

Roberts describes there had been no noise after the object flew out of view either, and says the secondary object, which resembled an “orb” of light, “flew straight up into the sky and disappeared,” and that he didn’t manage to film it as he had been focused on the primary object. “I sure hope somebody else is getting this video a little closer than me,” the videographer can be heard saying as the object passes out of frame.

TechTimes.com also commented on Roberts’ video, noting that, “Even if you aren’t a UFO conspiracy theorist, it still makes for a fascinating video. The flying object is likely something much more mundane than a crashing alien spacecraft (maybe a meteor). But what could the “orb” be? Probably a piece of debris, though the way it seems to go higher up into the sky rather than falling along with the larger object doesn’t seem normal.”

On occasion, pockets of gas contained within meteors as they burn apart while entering Earth’s atmosphere can cause erratic, and often seemingly “controlled” movements. American Physicist William R. Corliss had cited these as the likely cause behind a number of UFO reports where meteors seemed to undergo directional changes in mid-flight, while certain other “high-altitude nocturnal emissions”, as he called them, may have a different explanation more akin to ball lightning.

  1. There’s a “pop” just prior to the piece that came out of the trail and flew in the opposite direction…and seems to be related to that movement.

  2. That pop sound is not from the object. Sound travels too slow for it to be associated. It is obviously a Alien escape pod.

  3. If you watch the ‘contrail’ closely you can see regular pulses of exhaust (?) rippling along it. One of which results in the ‘pop’ which produced the second object.
