UPDATE: CGI hoax. See below
This is the spooky moment a jumbo jet taking off from New York was seemingly overtaken in the air by a UFO. The incredible footage shows the Virgin Atlantic plane flying from JFK airport before a mystery object is seen in the distance flying quickly past it.
I’ll still consider alien spaceship REALLY far down on the list and bug/bird as a better choice.

UPDATE: Thanks to Twitterer @UFOofinterest who pointed out this was originally posted to youtube by a known hoaxer @LookNowTV who has been taken to task here for hoaxing by “shrink[ing] UFOs to miniscule sizes where low resolution and compression obscure any evidence of tampering.”
In clip after clip, it works like this: we’re shown some sort of bland setting that really has no reason to exist other than to provide a backdrop for the hoax. After a few seconds, a title card: “A CLOSER LOOK.” Then we see close-up stills of the clip along with some clicky camera sound effects, highlighting the “UFOs” which are nothing more than tiny shadows or smudges on the sky. Looknowtv is exploiting the weak spot in analyzing online video: low resolution. If the picture is degraded enough, differences in grain, shading, and tracking become completely obscured. It actually looks as if the footage has been pre-degraded before upload to Youtube.
Yep. Good work. *Brushes off hands*
