An eerie video captured by a small team of researchers shows a strange sight in the sky, and many believe it could be a wormhole.
The video shows footage captured on Catalina Island.
Footage shows a strange light pattern that has sparked an investigation.
The video was shared by history channel and begins with presenter Tony Harris explaining some background.
He explains that the clip was captured on July 16, 2021, when a group of scientists were on a week-long expedition near the island.
“Just before 4 a.m., one of their motion-detection cameras caught this in night-vision goggles,” he said, showing a still from a video.
The photo shows a foggy night with a clear patch of sky visible in the upper right corner.
Upon closer inspection, it looks like there are various lights crowded together.
“Researchers don’t think they’re just stars,” Harris said.
Matthew Szydagis, one of the researchers studying the phenomenon, still calls it “very strange”.
He explains that the video’s timestamp matches a recording of high-energy radiation, something long associated with UFO activity.
Normal radiation readings give about one or two megaelectron volts.
At the time of the incident, the machine read 43.
Like other examples of UFO sightings, it took place at a location associated with anomalous activity.
In 2004, one of the most discussed possible UFO sightings was documented near Catalina Island.
Journalists and researchers floated the idea that there might be a wormhole near the island, thereby explaining why there were UFO sightings in the area.
dr Michio Kaku, a professor of theoretical physics, argues that the sighting could be a gateway to parallel universes.
He suspects that the group of lights could belong to another universe.
“But there should be side effects,” he said, claiming there were no examples on the tape.
He also points out that what we’re seeing in the image is a falls streak, a phenomenon that gives rise to these sights when water in the clouds suddenly freezes or evaporates.
These usually occur when an airplane flies past a part of the sky.
Szydagis says they considered the possibility that this could be an explanation, but they checked records from the Department of Transport and found that there were no planes at that location.
He also says it’s very unlikely that the camera is defective.
“We find no evidence of camera failure for the entire week of the expedition,” he said.
The question remains unsolved for the time being.
