Strange lights over Doha yesterday - Photo Up

By anonymous

I hope I'm not the only one who has witnessed the two strange lights over Doha yesterday. It was around 9.30 pm when I was standing in front of my house at Matar Kadeem. I looked up randomly and saw a bright flame in the sky.It was appearing to be the size of a tennis ball with very bright flames like light flickering almost about 2 mile high.It was moving at a very slow pace and had it not been for the height at which it was,I would have ignored it as a balloon.

I have taken a photo and will upload it if anyone can help me with uploading it on QL. All of us were amazed and were joined by a lot of other onlookers.All of us were guessing as to what it could be. The light kept moving from South to North for about 10 mins. It was moving in a straight line and then started wobbling at it place.After about 3-4 more mins, it vanished in to the clouds. This was not it. After about another 5 mins a similar light appeared in the South horizon and followed a similar pattern. Did anyone on QL notice it? What could it be?

Just flotting away in the wind.

Not so high, to be considered as an Aeroplane/ helicopter

No other lights. Just a small light, just flotting like a balloon. moving away. (not stationary)

If yes,

Many believe that the large fireball observed in the sky above Ontario, Canada, and six US states was nothing more than a passing meteor. However, residents of the small town of Kecksburg, Pennsylvania, claim that a car-sized, acorn-shaped object with hieroglyphic-like markings crashed in a nearby wood. The military denied these allegations, but, nearly 40 years later, NASA made what admission regarding the suspicious object?

I think it is most propably a comet. This is the same look as what comets look when they penetrate earth's atmosphere.

There hundreds of comets fallen into earth's atmosphere every year but they immediately burn during their fall.

I just see this one is bit more larger in size.

Furthermore , if they were ppl from Mars, they are not allowed to enter Qatar field without local sponsor

About a month ago or less, I was driving near the old airport area and saw what looked like a large ball of fire falling from the sky, slowly with what looked like sparks shooting off of it.

very odd. it was night and i was straining to see it, it was a quarter mile or so away, but my husband was in the car and saw it too. he thought it was a fire work display, but I disagree. looked like a BIG ball of fire and traveling in a very odd manor.

...shaped helicopter looks very convincing. Ok let me respond to some of the other posters:

1. This one really looks different than an aircraft or a helicopter because none of them would go so slow on two instances(I saw two of them in a space of about 5 mins),none of them would wobbel before dissappearing.

2. I would have recognized it if it were any of our familiar objects. I have mentioned in one of my previous posts that I have some amount of knowledge on various flying machines.

3.It could not have been a meteorite.Meteorites fall 'towards' earth due to gravity and have a distinct 'tail' which is missing in this case.Secondly they have a very high speed,whereas, this object was very slow.

4. It was 'flickering' and appeared different from the light emmitted by airplane or other flying machine exhausts.

LOS ANGELES - An asteroid at least 500 feet long will make a rare close pass by Earth next week, but there is no chance of an impact, scientists reported Thursday.

The object, known as 2007 TU24, is expected to whiz by Earth on Tuesday with its closest approach at 334,000 miles, or about 1.4 times the distance of Earth to the moon.

The nighttime encounter should be bright enough for medium-sized telescopes to get a glimpse, said Don Yeomans, manager of the Near-Earth Object Program Office at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which tracks potentially dangerous space rocks.

However, next week's asteroid pass "has no chance of hitting, or affecting, Earth," Yeomans said.

An actual collision of a similar-sized object with Earth occurs on average every 37,000 years.

Spotted last October by the NASA-funded Catalina Sky Survey in Arizona, 2007 TU24 is estimated to be between 500 feet and 2,000 feet long. The next time an asteroid this size will fly this close to Earth will be in 2027.

Scientists plan to point the Goldstone radar telescope in California and the Arecibo radar telescope in Puerto Rico at the asteroid and observe its path before and after its closest approach to Earth. Researchers will use instruments to measure its rotation and composition.

The 2007 TU24 rendezvous comes a day before another asteroid is projected to pass close to Mars.

Scientists have effectively ruled out a collision between the Red Planet and the asteroid 2007 WD5, estimating it will pass at a distance of more than 16,000 miles from the Martian surface. Initial observations of the Mars-bound asteroid put the odds of an impact at 1 in 25, but scientists later dropped the odds to 1 in 10,000.

oooh... so it was asteroid ? perhaps it was right.

Because on monday january 28th 2008 / 16:45 PM at roundabout near of ASD ( american school doha ) ; when we stop waiting for other car, i saw group of bird make a arrow formation ( well... i like to see birds fly ). but above the bird ( really high above the bird ) i saw about 6 like bird or dots or something ( it's far away ) make a circle formation but it's not moving. just moving around in circle position.

for a while i though it was UFO because it was very very high and for sure bird can't flies at that high.

BUT, i ignore my mind, because it is not important for UFO to land on qatar. because there are a alot of places in earth more interesting rather than qatar. like INDONESIA, MALAYSIA,VENESIA,US,UK,area 51,roswell etc. so i just think it might be some bird that i havent seen before here.

Id go for the helicopter theory cuz of the pic and story, but out of the blue, ive also witnessed something fishy last night.

It only caught my attention for a glimpse, but came to the conclusion its probably fireworks (before reading this).

it was sometime between 9-10:30, i was next to the ramada signal, and the sky lit up twice over the maamoura/montaza'ish area.

it was just as if they were BIG fireworks, so i thought to myself are there any occasions going down? but couldnt think of any..

I was waiting to hear the big bang moments after the sky lit, but there werent any..

It was kinda strange at the moment, but chances of any serious action going on in the streets are low.. so i eventually carried on slurping away my frappalette

maybe coincidence, maybe not.

There are Sauccer shaped helicopter....used in military activity

Something similar as sceen in the starting footage of the Action Film "XXX-2" where an army unit break into Top Secret place and try to kill all the spys in a certain unit.

The Science behind the device is that it has two upturned sauccer shaped blades (rotors), - one under the other - both turning in opposite directions. The flight path can be changed by adjusting the speed of the respective blade (rotor).

I saw this thing on NationalGeographic/Discovery (dont remeber which channel exactly) in "History of Helicopter". And looking at the Black & white footage it seemed to be from the early 70's or 80's. But never seen a picture/photo/video footage othe than that in my whole life. Its a very unconventional flying object.

The thing is very silent due to the design of the upturned cup like Rotor and can even suddenly change directions. It is also hard to detect on Radar due to its odd sauccer shape and very small size.

The footage version of it would not be bigger than the smallest sports-car. Today, I believe it could carry munitions, smaller missiles, multiple video camera transmitting live video with thermal & infra red abilities.

A smaller version could also enter your house through an open window, in complete darkness, take clear photos/videos in colour via infrared camera, x-ray scan you to see if you are armed, even shoot an injection via dart to daze/kill you..etc

In fact a similar toy (flying helicopter -round scauccer shape) was recently available in BabyShop here. The top was made of Thermocol. I bought it(QR 50), just to see how it would fly but seems like the damn thing was damaged. I never bothered to get it replaced.

Most of the times we had a houses very close to the bases and we could see all sorts of aircrafts taking off and landing.The point is ,I'am familiar with most of the jets and such too. It was not a jet guys...I'am sure abt it. The second same light that appeared(I couldn't take a picture of that)was much lower in the horizon and at no point I could relate it to anything I have ever seen...People,these wer something else.They could have passed off for a balloon except for the light which was much more intense...

in most training flights there will always be two aircraft. the wobbly vanishing effect is caused by the jet wash after the inistial burn is switched off. as for the optical illusion you would have all witnessed this. its the same as an audience watching a magician unless you know what to look for you will all see the same thing.

Maybe LIB, but I still have a feeling it was just a helicopter, at least that's what the picture looks like to me. And the wobbly fashion could very well have been it flying into clouds.

The only thing is,there were two of these things within say,10 mins and optical illusion can be ruled out as there were atleast 7-8 people with us witnessing the same thing...

while it may have abpeared to be travelling slow this is just an optical illusion. the after burners on a jet can be seen for for upto 10km on a clear night and the further aay you are it can give the illusion that its travelling slowly.

Well LIB, I have my doubts that the American Military would be announcing that it has a Comanche or any other type of stealth helicopter (or plane) here in the Middle East. Also, if you look closley at the picture you can kind of see the outline of something benenth it.

By Gypsy• 9 years 8 months ago.

OOops sorry. the Comanche has been cancelled due to high costs. So it probably wasn't that one. It was more then likely the Kiowa, which is the US Militaries current light observation helicopter http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OH-58_Kiowa Which is stationed here in the ME (for use in Iraq).

"[edit] OH-58D

OH-58D Kiowa. Note the lack of weapons pylons.The OH-58D (Bell Model 406) was the result of the Army Helicopter Improvement Program (AHIP). It was a serious re-thinking of what was needed to be an effective scout aircraft. An upgraded transmission and engine gave it the power it needed, and a four-bladed main rotor made it much quieter than the two-bladed OH-58C. In addition, the OH-58D included the most distinctive feature of the family – a Mast-Mounted Sight (MMS) above the rotor system with a gyro-stabilized platform containing a TeleVision System (TVS), a Thermal Imaging System (TIS), and a Laser Range Finder/Designator (LRF/D). These new features gave the aircraft the additional mission capability of target acquisition and laser designation in both day or night, and in limited-visibility and adverse weather.

Fifteen copies of a modified version of the OH-58D (sometimes referred to as the MH-58D[1][32]) were sold to Saudi Arabia[33] as the Bell 406CS "Combat Scout". A Saab HeliTOW sight system[2] was opted for in place of the MMS. The sight was mounted on the roof of the aircraft, just above the left pilot seat.[3] The 406CS also had detachable weapon hardpoints on each side."

If you'll notice the orange light in the center of the circle that's probably the Thermal Imaging System. It also looks like it was quite high up, so you probably didn't hear it.

That being said there are 2 Comanche's in working order and several other stealth helicopters in testing phases, and everyone knows that Qatar is the staging ground for invasions into Iraq, so it's possible that they are testing it here for feasibility reasons.

Its not a helicopter for two reasons which were obvious to us who saw it:

Hmmm, it looks like a helicopter to me, with reflective tape or lights on the end of the blades. Probably from off one of the bases.

It was passed right after the 15000 QR wash your car law. It's actually 25000 QR for UFOs spotted flying over the country, 35000 if it's over the airport.

but has any one thought that it could just be the after burner of a jet we live near the air port and see them all the time.

I've have seen a similar scene over Qatar's skies, at a different time and place. I was with friends. We tried to take pictures but the object was too far fetched to catch with a 2mega pixel mobile cam.

What we saw was close to and far from:

1- far from a fire-work cracker

2- far from an aircraft

3- close to a shooting star / or a falling comet ( significantly: it had some kind of Halley Comet tail)

4-closer to a moving or rotating satellite/ telecommunication orbit

In all circumstances, I'd love to know it was a UFO or even more the Man from Mars --traveling on his rocket-sliegh.

Personally, I love UFO's, but the one i saw with friends was closest to a moving sat or orbit; either for broadcast or telecommunication

Whatever, this is science...Thank you for sharing this scene.

This was definately not a firecracker nor a balloon nor an aircraft nor a pilot nor a superman

.Eby has also seen it...It was different from anything I have seen...I will upload the pic in a little while but the image I have captured is appearing like a bright spot as even I have a 3.2 mp sony erricson phone camera...

Life is Beautiful...Indeed!

Even I saw it while driving down to the Airport road. Intially it looked like a large balloon to me and I said to myself thats strange ..moon cant be that big and as I drove closer to the airport to have a better look, it was diminishing and thought to myself ..must be the cloud that could be over shadowing it.. UFO sounds bit scare .. not that I havent seen strange ppls around !!!!!

It is interesting how everyone assumes Aircraft lights, whilst it is true that the simplest explanation is often the right one, does nobody entertain the idea of extraterrestrial life. I'm not talking little green men, but we live in a huge galaxy in a huge universe. It would be very arrogant to assume we are the only life in existence.

Must be aircraft's navigation lights. That time of the night that portion of airspace is opened (for a limited time) to air traffic coming from the west. Or it could be one of the aircraft from al udeid, they have all types of aircraft over there.
