The Dutch Flying Jellyfish is an Atmospheric Jellyfish, a type of UFO, sighted in the Netherlands by Harry Perton. The sighting prompted speculations on what the creature really was.

Atmospheric Jellyfish are flying jellyfish that have been sighted floating in the atmosphere. It is mostly known because of its appearance in The Secret Saturdays. According to British scientist, Dr Maggie Alderin-Pocock, the aliens likely exist.

The Sighting[]

Harry Perton ventured out after a storm last week to take photos for his blog after he saw beautiful skies from his window. He was not expecting to capture pictures of something unusual, but he was surprised upon checking his camera when he got home. He saw a jellyfish UFO.

He spotted what appeared to be a jellyfish UFO floating in the dark sky of Groningen, Netherlands flashing out green light. He related that he was taking photos when he noticed something.

"I was taking photos and suddenly something flashed. At first I thought it must have been my camera but the flash was not up and there was not a drop on my lens," Perton said.

He later dismissed this to be a strike of lightning, but when he got home, he saw something odd in one of the images that he took and it looked like a UFO with the shape of a jellyfish.

People who claim to have seen a UFO often see objects that are shaped like a saucer, sphere, egg, cigar, triangle and boomerang but while jellyfish-shaped UFOs are not commonly seen, Perton isn't the first person to capture one of them on camera. They have reportedly been captured on film before and some people claim that these are capable of absorbing light above the clouds.


Perton's photo prompted plenty of speculations online. Some people think the object could be a small meteorite or a space debris with the green hue around it possibly caused by electrostatic buildup as the mysterious thing passes through the clouds.

Others think that the object could be a new rocket-powered vehicle currently being tested by NASA while some think that the object was an effect caused by a lens flare.

Still, UFO enthusiasts and believers of alien life may think that the odd-looking object could be a spacecraft of extraterrestrial beings visiting Earth.

Despite taking the photos himself, the photographer has more realistic views on alien visitors. He said that he is not a UFO believer.

Instead of thinking that the mysterious object he captured on his camera is an extraterrestrial aircraft, Perton thinks that it was likely something meteorological. His opinion was that a ray of sun might have peeked through the storm cloud creating the effect that eventually showed up in his images.
