“The UFO was extremely bright despite the presence of sunlight,” the pilot told Geo News. He added that the object he captured could have been a “space station” or an “artificial planet”.
PIA spokesperson confirmed that the pilot spotted the UFO at around 4 pm on Saturday and that the sighting was immediately reported back to the control room.
