Fact Check:

A video creating abuzz online claims to show a clear and shocking footage of an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) spotted in Kenya’s capital Nairobi on a rainy day of 16th June 2016. So let us analyze whether the UFO footage said to have been caught on the dash cam by a driver is fact or not.

About the UFO Video from Kenya

As it appears in the 19 seconds video, the car travels down the road, and moments later the driver points to the sky before a huge, distinct oval-shaped craft (like a flying saucer) flies across. The massive flying object is accompanied by a thundering sound somewhat similar to that coming from an airplane. The claims of UFO video from Kenya became popular as the story was published in Express News website on 17 July 2016. It is said that the popular USA based Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), which investigates alien abductions and UFO sightings and footage, received the Kenya UFO video in question.

Flaws & Actual Facts

The aforementioned Express News article also reports Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) saying they receive lot of hoax footages from pranksters and other individuals. There’s also another video in circulation (second one in this article) that claims to show a UFO sighted in Kenya – in the sky, outside a home. It appears still in sky for sometime before disappearing. Again, as you can see from Related Stories section below, a number of UFO claims like these have been proved to be hoaxes in the past.

In the first video, the quality of the recording itself is quite poor. Upon sighting, there is no significant reaction from the driver verbally or physically. He remains quite calm and silent. Moreover, a close look at the footage reveals everything in the background is moving and shaking around, but not the flying object. In second video also viewers express no great reaction seeing such a huge UFO in the sky. It was as if they staged the incident. So, both the videos of alleged UFO sightings in Kenya are simply products of Computer Animation. They are not real, the claims in question are hoaxes.
