Two suspected UFOs were photographed over Tokyo on Nov. 7.

Two suspected UFOs were photographed over Tokyo on Nov. 7, according to a report published on, a Taiwanese news website, on Nov. 9.

Japanese e-zine "Rocketnews24" released the pictures of the suspected UFOs on Nov. 8. The magazine said that one of its reporters took a few pictures of the sky over Mount Fuji randomly when taking pictures on the top floor of a building in Tokyo at dusk on Nov. 7, and saw two unidentified light spots in his pictures. Having an intuition that the light spots could be shooting stars, he quickly picked up his camera, took several more pictures towards the same direction and even made a video recording.

After returning to the office, the reporter transmitted the pictures to his computer, and found that both light spots were irregularly shaped, with one being shrouded in mist and the other being V-shaped. He carefully viewed the pictures and concluded that the spots were not balloons or stars, but were likely to be the reflection of the sun, though they may be a little too glaring. The object shrouded in mist disappeared before he started recording, so only the V-shaped object was left in his recording.

The pictures and recording have raised a hot discussion among Japanese netizens, though most of them think the two light spots are actually the planet Venus.
