The footage reportedly taken on July 7 shows an unidentified object flying over the Virgin Atlantic plane at high speed. The trivial video has prompted speculations about a possible UFO sighting at JFK.

Rick, from LookNowTV, a UFO paranormal channel, who reportedly discovered the video said the footage hasn’t been tempered with, according to DailyMail Online.
“The person that saw this UFO at JFK films planes often and looks to catch UFOs on video,” he said. “I have no reason to believe this guy is a hoax. It’s really unidentified. I shared it with my friends to get further opinions on it, and we could not come to a definitive conclusion on what the object might be so I decided to go with it and share it online.”
YouTube users were confused by the video, which may be a hoax. Some wrote that they are convinced it “100 percent real,” while others suggested that it could be a drone or a military plane.
“On the zoomed in and slow mo shots you can clearly see It even has its own red force field, 100% aliens!” user Tom Baldwin wrote in comments on YouTube.
Russ Kellet, who claims to be a UFO investigator, cast doubt on the speculation, saying that the flying object could be a bird or anything else at a different angle.
Some YouTube users have ruled out the bird theory, saying: “It’s Superman.”
