Crashed UFO or Russian aircraft? Eerie cloud over Alaska's Lazy Mountain stirs theories
Netizens wondered if it was a meteor, a crashed UFO or satellite, an eruption, or perhaps a Russian weapon linked to the Ukraine crisis
Photos of a weird, worm-like cloud taken over Alaska's Lazy Mountain triggered an investigation by Alaska State Troopers. On Thursday, April 7, 2022, photos uploaded on Facebook of the incident showed a gigantic cloud plume. The images spurred debate online, with individuals wondering if it was a meteor, a crashed UFO or satellite, an eruption, or perhaps a Russian weapon linked to the Ukraine crisis.
The cloud drew such a huge amount of attention that Alaska State Troopers and the Alaska Rescue Coordination Center began looking into the possibility of a crash cloud. In a statement, Alaska State Troopers said, "There have been no reports of overdue aircraft or ELT activations indicating an aircraft crash." On April 9, 2022 morning, a helicopter rescue crew did a mission around the Lazy Mountain region and found nothing untoward, including no traces of a downed plane.
Theories came up while authorities declined
"We saw this on the way to school this morning as well. Very eerie!" On the Palmer Alaska Buzz Facebook page, a user named Christy Hronkin Swift wrote. “Looks like a meteor. I wonder where it landed," another user commented. Officials later came up with a much more reasonable explanation by adding that "Further investigation revealed that a large commercial jet was flying in that area around the time that the photos and video were taken," and continued, "The aircraft was contacted and reported normal flight operations on its way to JFK airport in New York."
UFOs cause brain injuries?
Meanwhile, forensic neuroimaging expert Professor Christopher Green said in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com that he has treated "hundreds of patients," including special forces officers and other military personnel, who have been injured after interacting with unidentified craft, some of whom have since died. Professor Green has worked with the CIA since the 1960s and was commissioned to publish a paper on damage from close encounters with 'unexplained' craft by a secret $22 million defense program monitoring UFOs in 2010. He revealed that some of the injuries mirrored the enigmatic 'Havana Syndrome,' which intelligence sources believe is a series of clandestine microwave attacks on US diplomats carried out by a foreign power.

Many people started to spam Twitter sharing their opinion on the incident. One user wrote, “No biggie...prolly just an extraterrestrial utilizing one of our Earthly energy sources. They've been doing this for 5,000 years...going back to when they used the Great Pyramid of Giza as a power plant.” Another person wrote, “2022 is indeed a strange year... 👽” while another said, “Oh sh*t Cthulhu ! Who's been playing with the dark arts ?”. However, there were also individuals who took the claims seriously as one user stated, “I’m starting to believe the theories are true 😬”
