MUĞLA – Doğan News Agency
Witnesses said the unidentified object was seen in the sky from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and suddenly disappeared after moving around 40 kilometers north. They immediately informed the gendarmerie about the flying object.
After seeing the flying object, locals called their relatives living in nearby neighborhoods and urged them to look into sky to see the object.
Mehmet Gümüş, one of the witnesses, said the flying object was almost at the size of a minibus.
“I had the opportunity to inspect [the object] with my brother’s binoculars. It had a shape similar to a balloon. When I zoomed in, I saw colorful particles. However, we could not clearly identify what the object was,” Gümüş said.
A number of people informed the gendarmerie about the same flying object. However, the gendarmerie did not prepare a report on the incident after interviewing locals who claimed they also saw the suspected UFO.
In addition, social media users posted pictures of the object, with some claiming that it might have been an unmanned aircraft or a balloon.
Meanwhile, another local captured video footage of a suspected UFO in the Aegean resort of Bodrum.
Oya Öztürk said two bright lights immediately appeared in the sky on Sept. 27, adding that the objects were turning and disappearing constantly.
Öztürk also stated that she had sent the footage to a research center where it was determined to be a UFO.
Öztürk also noted that she captured the image of a UFO in the same region.
