A UFO, which did not show up on radar, nearly caused a mid-air collision over the skies of Denver with a corporate jet on Monday evening and officials have no idea what it was.
Because the private pilot was the only witness, and due to the lack of any radar signature, the incident falls into the category of an encounter with an unidentified flying object.
But, listening to the frightened pilot's radio transmission at the time of the event, which is included in the video news report below, makes it clear that something was in the air which should not have been there.
FAA officials, of course, are falling short of the UFO classification, instead speculating that the object was either a surveillance drone, a remote-controlled aircraft or a very large bird.
Pointing out that the pilot saw the object for only a moment, which was enough to cause alarm, and citing the lack of any radar information, the incident is being investigated further.
Recently, debate has begun as to whether or not the same kind of drones which are being used for surveillance and air attacks in war zones should be employed over the American homeland has many people worried.
But if those drones do not show up on radar, the controversy enters an entirely different phase, pinning air safety as a major concern.
Here's the video:
