Californian TikTok user @dropofgold has filmed (or TikToked?) what appears to be a large, metallic UFO hovering above a mountain behind her house. According to @dropofgold, who does not appear to be shaken very much by the site of a UFO hovering above a mountain directly behind her house where it could easily shoot an alien death beam directly into her back yard, reports that the UFO was first spotted around 2pm and that “right now it’s 6:40”. So, if our math is correct (and there’s a high probably it might not be because we majored in English Lit) the UFO hovered over the mountain for FOUR HOURS!*
One possible prosaic explanation for the UFO is that it could be a phenomenon known as Fata Morgana, a “complex form of superior mirage that is seen in a narrow band right above the horizon” according to Wikipeda. This mirage causes objects that are on the surface of the Earth to appear as if they are floating above the Earth. Have a look at the video and let us know what you think!
*Or possibly a week.
