Strange light seen over Dubai skies on Jan 3

By Eudore R Chand

Mid-afternoon on January 3, a strange round bright light far away and high up in the sky was seen and filmed by one of the residents in Dubai.

It stayed stationary and brilliant for a few minutes, and then a few minutes after the filming, the light faded away.


It was roughly westward, but it was not the sun as the solar disc was still high up in the sky.

The bright object seemed to be shinning over Jumeirah or beyond over the sea, according to the resident who filmed it from his balcony in Dubailand.


Was it an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO)? Was it a balloon or was it a drone?
