The United States Department of Defense published a video in 2022 showing an unidentified flying object (UFO) flying over a hot conflict zone in the Middle East. The sheer appearance of the UFO increases “the probability of unintended crossfire,” according to an analyst.

During the hearing that took place before the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities on Wednesday, a brief video was shown that showed an unidentified flying object that seemed to be made of metal and flying at a rapid rate.

It was first seen that the item was traveling from the top right corner of the screen to the bottom left corner. After a short absence from view, it suddenly emerges.

“This is essentially all the data we have of this event,” said Dr. Sean Kirkpatrick, who is the head of the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO).  “It’s going to be virtually impossible to fully identify that just based off that video.”

Kirkpatrick informed legislators that the orb in the Middle East in 2022 is still an “unresolved case,” and the film reminded Jeremy Corbell of the “Mosul Orb,” which was a metallic sphere with a similar appearance that was caught in 2016 by a United States spy aircraft flying over Mosul, Iraq.

A photograph of the “Mosul Orb” from 2016 was provided by Corbell, an investigative journalist and documentary filmmaker, to Fox News Digital during an interview in February. Corbell was the sole civilian to be identified at the historic UAP hearing that took place in Congress in May 2022.
