Case File Information

A resident of Limassol has been left stunned after spotting what appeared to be a UFO in the sky above the city.

The resident, who is unnamed, left a statement along with amateur footage on Youtube claiming that: “I saw this strange light hovering on the sky which also changed colours to green. At first I thought it was a plane but as it got closer this thing was quite big and was hovering on the sky for about an hour and 5 minutes.”

The photographer zoomed in on the object - but was still unable to identify what it could be.

The crystal clear video, which was filmed at the end of September, shows what appears to be a UFO floating above the city.

The object, which looks like a bright white ball of light slowly moves around, with the photographer capturing its every move.

But many internet users, viewing the footage, believe otherwise.

“It is an unmanned aircraft called Icarus, used for search and rescue,” claimed one viewer.

The footage is just the latest in a series of incidents of unidentified objects in our skies. 

In 2007, a local TV cameraman also posted a clip he filmed on the Youtube website of a 'strange craft' in the skies of Limassol.

The three-minute video, which was viewed by over 100,000 people showed a circular object hovering over the city. 

The UFO was a bright orange orb, which later changed to a rugby-ball shape.

One of the earliest accounts of a UFO in Cyprus was in 1950, when two American soldiers described a "small, round, bright object flying fast, straight and level for 15-20 seconds across Nicosia".

In 2002, the self-styled Egyptian UFO Hunter, Dr.Ibrahim shot a five-minute video of a UFO above the carpark at Larnaca airport. The film shows a green 'shaking' object and can be seen on his website. ( http://www.ufo-egyptian-hunter.org ).
