Horseshoe UFOs Spotted Over Both North and South Korea

While it’s difficult to get news from North Korea about anything except for unbelievable Kim Jong Un rumors, word has emerged about the sighting of a horseshoe-shaped UFO photographed recently in that highly-secretive country. This is not the first sighting in this area and, what’s even more interesting, horseshoe-shaped UFOs have been seen over South Korea as well. If these are secret military aircraft, whose side are they on? Or are they evidence that aliens are working to unite the Koreas?

The horseshoe UFO was reportedly spotted on September 15th over Wonsan, a port city and naval base, on the southeastern coast of North Korea on the Sea of Japan or East Korean Sea. There’s not much information about the sighting and its reporting will undoubtedly cause some debate about its authenticity since cell phones and cameras are banned it that country. However, Wonsan is open to tourists and this sighting, as well as one in March 2013 (not a horseshoe), may have been recorded by visitors.

While horseshoe-shaped UFOs have been seen in other countries, it may be more than a coincidence that they have been spotted in both North and South Korea.

This horseshoe UFO was reportedly recorded from a plane flying over Seoul on March 30 2013.

This one was reportedly seen over Busan in July 2012.

The odd horseshoe shape of these UFOs suggests to many that they may be secret military aircraft, particularly the TR-3A Black Manta or Aurora, since it allegedly has a triangular shape that could look like a horseshoe at a high altitude. A military plane would also make sense over highly volatile North Korea and the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ).

On the other hand, this could also imply that the horseshoe UFO is an alien spacecraft monitoring the area, since UFOs have frequently been seen over war and battle zones – most recently in Syria.

Whatever it is, the horseshoe UFO over North Korea and the leaked photographs are highly unusual. Any thoughts?
