A video on YouTube shows an enhanced version of a clip of a saucer UFO flying past a jet taking off from the Paris airport. What is it?
The video includes the raw footage establishing the shot as the passenger boards the plane at the airport and films out the window as the plane taxis down the runway. As the camera catches the view outside on the tarmac, a streaking object zooms by moving much faster than the plane.
