Is that a UFO? Truth behind mysterious blue lights spotted above Oahu: 'I look up and I was like oh s**t!'
Do aliens exist? The mystery has never been solved but there have been sightings every now and then. In one such shocking incident, an unidentified flying object was reportedly spotted in the evening sky over Leeward Oahu. If reports are to be believed, hundreds of witnesses dialed 9-1-1 on Tuesday, December 29, 2020, at around 8.30 pm.
Several witnesses recalled spotting the large blue object and claimed that it fell into the ocean. In fact, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was also alerted and they later confirmed that there were no aircraft incidents or accidents in this area at the time. Bizarre, isn't it? Apparently, it was one of the clearest and most well documented mass UFO sightings in years and many social media users thought it was the perfect end to 2020!

When was it spotted?
The outlet spoke to several witnesses. In one video, a woman named Misitina Sape can be heard saying, “Something is in the sky. What is that?” She said she captured the image at 8.26 pm near Haleakala Avenue in Nanakuli.
Another woman named Moriah spotted a similar object passing over Princess Kahanu Estates. “I look up and then I was like oh s***!” she said. “I started calling my husband and them because they were all in the garage. I was like hey. Come look up there. See if you see what I see. They all said yea!” Interestingly, the 38-year-old has never believed in UFOs but was taken aback by the sight of the bright blue object.

What does the UFO look like?
According to HawaiiNewsNow, multiple videos of “what appears to be a glowing‚ oblong mass — both in the sky and in the water” started floating around. Moriah called it “larger than a telephone pole” and said it didn't make any sound. Reportedly, the husband-wife duo jumped in the car and started following it. “I don’t know what it was,” she said. “This one was going so fast.”
Going by their statement, the journey ended less than three miles from where it began. The two stopped the car on Farrington Highway in front of the Board of Water Supply building after the object appeared to drop into the ocean. In one of Moriah’s videos you can hear her say, “(It) went land in the water. Whatever it is.” She added, “We called 911. For have like one cop or somebody for come out and come check em out.”

Was there a second light?
After the blue light vanished, Moriah said they spotted a second light. “My husband went look up and he saw the white one coming,” she said. “The white one was smaller. Was coming in the same direction as the blue one.” Sadly, they lost track of it after it passed over a nearby mountain.
When Honolulu police were asked if investigators could find out what it really was, a spokesperson said no information could be gathered as of then. FAA spokesperson Ian Gregor said the agency received a report from police about a possible plane down in the area “but had no aircraft disappear off radars. And no reports of overdue or missing aircraft.” Back in 2015, a similar incident occurred when strange lights were seen above West Oahu.

I saw this UFO/USO for 3 nights in a row it moved FAST & was silent. Each night Military Helicopters showed up too#Truth
What are the theories?
Even after a couple of days to think over it, Moriah said, “To this day I don’t know,” adding, “If you guys can find out what it was, I like know, you know?” After the incident was shared online, social media users had several theories. One Reddit user poked fun at the incident and said, “Looks like a blue dildo.”
“I remember a story of a flying saucer landing on an airforce base with people coming out. It eventually flew away. Government officials eventually confiscated the video and it has been lost forever into the deep classified archives. We have proof of this stuff but for some reason, the government wants to hide all the hard evidence,” another Reddit user said.
A third called it a “balloon d**k” but a fourth one added, “Giant helium dick balloon was my first thought too. Maybe with a glowstick. Any Bachelorette parties in the area? Lol.” Another posted, “It looks like a drone or balloon with some Christmas lights or LEDs strapped onto it. Not exactly farfetched given this was taken on New Year's Eve - when people like putting bright things into the sky. Why the hell is this even news.”
Is it real?
Pondering over it, one Reddit user wrote, “So what's larger than a telephone pole? Can move "really fast" but slow enough for a woman (with others) to chase it in a car, to see it 'fall into the water', but then lose sight of it as it passed over a steep hill nearby? She never got close enough to give more of a description of it than 'I don't know what it was'? Police officers investigated, but we don't know if any saw it, but Police asked the CAA if there was aircraft down in the area. Which there wasn't. And the reporter says there are multiple videos but nothing they could get was better than what we see here. Puzzling.”
Another said, “I'm done questioning UFOs. We know they're here, now I want to know why. Why does a bright ass blue purple space ship come down out of the sky, and then just chill half out of water?”
A third wrote, “This is right near my house, 30-45 minute drive at most. This makes me wonder if it has anything to do with my recent experiences and my desire to connect. I will say that the fireworks in the area went off for at least 2-3 hours before New Years and then a straight 1h until 1am of “grand finale” style fireworks, but nothing even comes close to this. I’d say hello if it is in fact a UFO/USO and wanna stop by!”
