Most of us have looked up at the night sky and wondered “are we really alone in the universe?” And for some, their questions have been answered by apparent UFO sightings…

Whilst there is an explanation for most things, Unidentified Flying Objects – or UFOs as they’re more commonly known – can appear in some pretty unlikely places, leading to a flurry of questions.

Most recently, a UFO which appeared above the Las Vegas strip stunned onlookers:

Now this footage of some apparent UFOs flying above the Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club has been going viral on TikTok, and it really is something to see.

It features a combination of red and yellow lights peeping through the clouds of Sin City.

But for those that are familiar with Sin City, you may know that the city has a lot of lights, so most of which are easy to explain.

However, there’s nothing immediately explainable about this footage, which features UFOs that were reportedly visible for around an hour, Las Vegas CBS affiliate KLAS reports.

For many, the fact that Las Vegas is so near to the infamous alleged alien hotspot Area 51 deepens the mystery further.

There have been multiple TikToks posted of the event, so it clearly caught the eyes of a lot of people.

However, since the footage has appeared online there have been multiple logical explanations for the event, and some of them are completely fascinating.

One probability is that the lights are part of an event known as ‘light pillars’, which wouldn’t be immediately obvious to most viewers as it’s so rare.

The National Weather Service explained:

“Long pillars of multicoloured light streaking the sky seem like the perfect backdrop for impending alien invasion, but in reality, light pillars are a common effect that can be found all over the world.

“They do come from above – not extraterrestrials, but tiny crystals of ice hanging in the atmosphere. Ice is very thin, shaped like plates with hexagonal faces. When ice drifts down through the air, it falls close to horizontally.

“At the top and bottom are the faces with more area. Ice is very reflective, so when light hits those wider faces, it bounces around and reflects off more ice crystals.”

Although this explanation may make sense, there as still a myriad of TikTok users who still believed that this footage was out of this world…

Reacting to the footage above, one joked: “THEY’RE IN THE CLUB. The ship is parked. Ty for sharing.”

“They need to come down so we can see them already,” added a second while a third observed: “And the clouds literally don’t move. It’s like it’s meant to hide behind the clouds.”
