MASSIVE “UFO” HOVERING OVER MECCA Wow! I may have taken unknowingly a photo of what appears to be a massive UFO hovering over Mecca.

There are so many lights in the mosque at night that an object regardless of how big may pass unnoticed over the massive building. It appeared in two of the pictures I took. It is a little further in one but had moved closer in the other (picture above).

I took this photo in the evening of May 21, 2011. I was in Mecca for an "umrah pilgrimage" with my brother and his family. I didn’t notice the strange disc until 11 days later (June 2) while I was dragging the photos into a folder.

The clock tower is not only the biggest clock in the world; it is the second tallest building in the world; second only to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai so you can have an idea of the height where the UFO was hovering.
