Seen anything strange in the skies above Dordogne in recent days?
One person, has atleast, and luckily they happened to havea video camera with them.
Sud Ouest newspaper reports that a video was posted on the internet on July 5 that shows four strange spherical objects floating above a forest, before emitting a series of flashes and plunging towards the ground.
According to description of the video, which is written in English, the images were shot at dusk on July 4 near a small “ghostly” village, home to around 50 inhabitants, whose name is not specified.
The video is titled in English: "Disturbing UFO activity! 3 UFOs landing in Forest, July 2014".
"I filmed four UFOs over a forest in Dordogne, France. It was during a beautiful sunset. I looked between two houses to discover the nice sky, when I saw these objects," writes the maker of the clip.
"I had may Canon 700D in hands, hopefully I could record quickly! I think these objects were there since a long time. This is probably a landing. Indeed, the three objects seem to descend and get behind the trees.
"I couldn't know more about this event, this is a ghost village, only 50 inhabitants in the area. None of them was outside to witness these UFOs with me.
"I checked on Google map, and the forest in front of me is alone in the middle of huge lands."
The clip was sent by Sud Ouest to the an organisation named Geipan, which studies unidentified aerospace phenomenon, linked to the National Centre for Space Studies. However so far scientists have been unable to come up with an explanation.
Speculation has been rife among viewers on YouTube over what the objects could be.
