Motorists on a nearby highway spotted the UFO right away (how could they not?!) and pulled over to wonder out loud and, of course, record the moment with their phones. Videos were immediately posted to social media (Twitter, TikTok, Instagram, you name it), where they went viral: here was proof that 2020 could – and did! – get worse, as aliens had just dropped by for a visit.
You can see some samples of the videos circulated online in the tweets below. For very understandable reasons, there is a lot of foul language in most of them, so we can’t embed more; but these are enough to help you get an idea of the insanity happening on the road. Traffic came to a near-stop because people couldn’t believe their eyes.
As it turns out, the UFO was a Goodyear blimp – the “Wingfoot One,” to be more precise. Since the New York Giants were playing against the Pittsburgh Steelers at the Stadium, the blimp was in the air to shoot footage from high above, as it’s known to do. That’s why it was hovering in one place or moving in circles.
The blimp stayed in the air for 39 minutes, and the entire flight was, as expected, recorded and tracked. At this point, there’s a good chance not even the aliens want to have anything to do with us.

Yeah if you look at the shapes and color schemes these 2 don’t match up so I doubt it was the blimp ... hmm their newest 21 million dollar blimp shown below also doesn’t have a screen pic.twitter.com/0EAmrV8Qwr— 8Annie8 (@AnimeAnniePlays) September 15, 2020
