A video viral on social media on Monday convinced some New Jersey residents that they had seen an actual UFO flying in their state.
But the “unknown flying object” turned out to be just a Goodyear blimp.
In a video shared on Twitter, a man filming “UFO” expressed surprise at what he saw.
“Look f — ing across the street is closed!” This is an F — flying spacecraft! “The man says, dragging his phone around to see other naughty New Jersey people pulling to the side of the road and stepping out of his car to see what was apparently a blimp.
Another man posted a video, which claimed that the alleged UFO was flying at Teterboro Airport.

“It’s literally an F — UFO. It’s floating right now. The ship was close, went up, a light was flashing out of it like a ray. It’s S — it’s just F — flat. And it was growing like circles, ”he said.
It soon became clear that the blimp was not actually a flying spacecraft being operated by supernatural entities.
