A new video on YouTube by user Jimmy Le Maryland seems to show a UFO he recorded around 4 PM in Glenn Dale, MD.
The video isn’t very detailed, and the person who filmed it is pretty clear he has no idea what it is.
Here’s the video as it appears on YouTube:
Edit: As of 02-24-2021 the video is no longer available.
What Was It?
While it’s not fully possible to identify an object from a video like this, there are some clues provided by the audio:
It’s not a plane, it’s not a helicopter, it’s not moving. Looks like a UFO. It’s definitely not moving at all.

The quote above gives us a clue. While UFOs do sometimes remain still, they aren’t generally motionless for long periods of time. So what could this be?
A Possible Explanation
There’s a really good chance this is a video of the planet Venus, which is visible in the sky during the darker hours of the day. On this date in Glen Dale, MD, sunset was at 4:58 PM which puts a sighting of Venus within the realm of possibility.
While Venus is a perfectly adequate explanation, it’s also possible this video could be something else. It’s under 2 minutes long and we have no idea what else may have been caught on camera – though I’d hope the person recording would have posted it if something more interesting happened.
That being said, Maryland does have its share of UFO sightings, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if this turned out not to be Venus and ended up being something more extraordinary.
