A massive, spinning ‘UFO’ has left locals living near Lake Zürich, Switzerland in a state of shock.
Residents in the small town of Feldmeilen captured images of the spooky disc-shaped object lurking in the night sky.
The strange object, emitting bright lights, was sighted on October 15.

“But there wasn’t a laser beam coming from the ground. Also, there wasn’t any sound.”
The strange sighting lasted for approximately five minutes before the object suddenly vanished into the night.

Similar sightings of the spinning ‘UFO’ were reported over 40 miles away in the village of Diessenhofen and 30 miles away in the town of Schaffhausen. A couple in Diessenhofen, who observed the lights from their balcony, shared their experiences: “When we were on the balcony, we noticed these strange lights. Luckily, other people saw them, otherwise, we would have felt like we were crazy.”
One resident in Schaffhausen, who witnessed the lights around 11.30pm, described them as unusual and different from any searchlights.
Vladi Barrosa, a spokesperson for Skyguide, the organization responsible for monitoring Swiss airspace, said: “We also cannot identify what it is. What personally puzzles me is that the lights from this object are not reflected in the lake, unlike others.”
The mysterious event has left residents and observers perplexed, prompting a mix of humorous and bewildered reactions. While it remains unclear whether Swiss authorities are investigating the sighting, local residents couldn’t help but share their thoughts on social media.
One suggested: “Shoot it with a crossbow…that’s the only way we can win against ze aaaalieeens…”.
Others chimed in with lighthearted comments, making references to UFO lore and sci-fi movies, while some remained open to the idea of extraterrestrial visitors.
