Last Friday night, a strange object appeared over the Western Wall. It came close to the ground, hovering right above the Dome of the Rock, and then retreating back to wherever it came from.

According to one commenter on the io9 message board where I first saw this posted, NASA and the Israeli Air Force both reported that it was swamp gas.

What do you think?
