Sun-Like Bright UFO Seen Over Fargo On Jan 9, 2021, Loud Booms Heard In North Carolina

On January 16, 2021, a sensational video of a Sun-like bright object was posted on the Mutual UFO Network, shot on a smartphone in portrait mode in the skies of Fargo, North Dakota, on the evening of January 9.

The person who captured the video was returning home by car when he saw a bright light ahead, similar to Sun that illuminated the sky in the foggy morning. But the strange lights were seen at the moment when the Sun was not supposed to be there on that side. This triggered the guy, and he took a shot of the strange phenomenon.

MUFON is a US-based non-profit organization where people around the world report UFO sightings and study them. So, the videos are published only after the experts check their authenticity.

This one-minute long video could be new evidence of extraterrestrial life

, wandering on Earth for a long time. The famous UFO researcher and alien life enthusiast named Scott Waring said on his blog:

“This UFO report just came into MUFON today. A guy was driving home from work when he saw some strange pulsating lights up ahead. The lights didn’t fly away, but were hovering in place in the fog. From what I see when I slow down the video, there is a black thick disk at the center of these lights.”

He wrote further that this could have been a close encounter with alien craft, whose inhabitants had landed in the town to study the area before people woke up.

So far, no official records exist. Neither any space industry nor Pentagon had ever manufactured such an enormous machine. The craft is illuminating so strongly in the video that it disguises like Sun.

But according to Scott Brando, a UFO fact-checker from, the glowing ring near the parking area in Fargo is actually a high-mast lighting pole.

Well, this is not the first UFO sighting captured in the skies of Fargo. In 1948, during the Bison-Augustana football game, something spectacular occurred not only on the ground but above in the night sky. A highly speedy UFO was chased by a WWII fighter plane. The incident is famously known as the Gorman dogfight. On October 1, pilot George Gorman decided to take extra fly time on his P-51 Mustang. He was approached by an object that he called a flying saucer. He deiced to chase it, but the UFO surpassed the maximum speed of 400 mph of P-51. He thought that he lost the object, but it suddenly came over him. The dogfight lasted for 27 minutes.

Gorman told to The Fargo Forum:

“When the object was coming head on, I held my plane pointed right at it. The object came so close that I involuntarily ducked my head because I thought a crash was inevitable. But the object zoomed over my head.”

This incident was even featured in the History Channel show called “Project Blue Book” in 2019.

Besides Fargo’s January 16 UFO sighting, thousands of people reported hearing loud boom sounds on January 3. Normally, they took those sounds like the sonic boom from the fighter jet, but the twist is that no one had seen any aircraft.


According to reports, the mysterious noises were heard in several counties of North Carolina. There is no official announcement regarding the case, and the military also assured that there had been no flights during that time.
