An unidentified object with green lights passed 2 to 3,000 feet above us. Then it disappeared all of a sudden. We are guessing that it was a UFO,” the two pilots told the Air Traffic Control Centre at Istanbul’s Atatürk Airport.

The “UFO” was seen around Istanbul’s Silivri district, during a flight from the western Turkish resort town of Bodrum to Istanbul.

The unidentified object was spotted when the plane was flying at approximately 17,000 feet at around 11:30 p.m. on 19th May, the pilots said.

The plane landed at Atatürk Airport around 30 minutes later.

The General Directorate of State Airports Authority said it did not spot any image on its radars corresponding to what the pilots had described.
