Sky Snakes: Flying Serpents In the Air

Ladies and gentlemen, there is something in our skies that can no longer be ignored.

I am, of course, talking about the sky snake.

People have reportedly witnessed these bizarre, snake-like UFOs throughout the entire world.

Not to be confused with typical flying snakes, which actually form “UFO-like” shapes to glide through the air, sky snakes have allegedly been seen hovering thousands of feet in the sky. Some claim they’re extraterrestrial in origin.

Videos on the Internet (like the one above) would also seem to provide evidence of their existence. In fact, last year, UFO hunters discovered something resembling a sky snake in an image taken during space shuttle Discovery’s STS105 mission.

Here’s the alleged snake-like UFO, which seems to be hanging out somewhere in low Earth orbit:

What’s that? You’d prefer a dramatic video containing slow zooms and image filters? Ask and you shall receive:

Encounters With Sky Snakes (and Dragons!)

In 2009, Jerome Clark over at Fortean Times shared a number of stories involving these “Sky Serpents” and other unexplainable flying creatures. There are far too many to recount here, so check out that article if you get the chance.

One in particular, however, told of an event in June 1873 in which a farmer witnessed “an enormous serpent…as large and long as telegraph ole…of a yellow striped color.” The serpent appeared to be riding through a cloud, moving just like a snake, heading east.

I once saw an odd story about a “dragon” spotted in the clouds above China. Was it a hoax? A strange cloud formation? Or could this “dragon” be related to the sky serpent described above? Don’t answer that.

I mentioned actual flying snakes earlier, and how they use a UFO-like formation to fly through the air. This is true, and completely unrelated to those bizarre stories of sky snakes.

Research published in January describes how flying snakes (specifically Southeast Asian snakes) flatten their bodies while in the air to make themselves more aerodynamic. In doing so, they take on a curved triangular shape, like the cross-section of a “flying saucer.”

But they’re not actually flying; they launch from trees and glide (like flying squirrels). When they do, it appears almost like the snakes are “swimming in the air,” and it’s pretty weird to see in action.

So keep your eyes on the sky. Maybe you’ll see a flying snake. Or maybe, just maybe, you’ll encounter a mysterious interdimensional sky serpent!

  3. This is an old e-mail subject so this may never be read but in case, I will give some information. You see the date right now is Jan.2020 and I just put out a 345 page book with color pictures of actual untouched pictures I took for two hours a night over four years of things over the mountains facing hour house. Because the book is in color it is very expensive on Amazon so to be sure anyone can read it and see the pictures I’ve also put it on Kindel’s e-book on Amazon for $9.99. On the hardcopy page 144 you will see the ‘snake’ I too got in the sky but I show a ‘closeup’!
