Some imaginative fellow was on an airplane flying over Nevada when he was sure he saw a giant UFO below the airplane. It was massive and giving off extremely bright lights. The guy must have thought Earth was under alien attack.
He took some photos below:
The “I want to believe” UFO community was abuzz when they saw the photos. Maybe some real evidence that the little green bastards do exist! But then a skeptic pointed out that the sighting was almost 99.999 percent a solar energy facility in the desert.
The Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System is a concentrated solar thermal plant in the California Mojave Desert, 64 km (40 miles) southwest of Las Vegas, with a gross capacity of 392 megawatts (MW). It deploys 173,500 heliostats, each with two mirrors, focusing solar energy on boilers located on three centralized solar power towers. Unit 1 of the project was connected to the grid in September 2013 in an initial sync testing. The facility formally opened on February 13, 2014, and it is currently the world’s largest solar thermal power station.
There are ten huge Solar Generating facilities in the Mojave Desert. The airplane passenger should have done some research before he came to a UFO conclusion.
173,500 of these heliostats (mirror reflectors).
