A HIGH-powered laser weapon dubbed the “Voice of God” may have been mistaken for a UFO, it’s been revealed.
The weapon was reportedly being developed in New Mexico back in the 1980s and could “create a glowing ball of fire” in the sky – which may have misled alien hunters.

The US Navy is investigating ultra-short laser pulses which lure missiles away from aircraft by making plasma glow mid-air.
It’s thought that such technology could be behind the explanation for a number of UFO sightings described in the Pentagon’s reports on Unexplained Aerial Phenomena, reports Forbes.
In the 1980s, New Scientist journalist Justin Mullins caught wind of a rumor about a new weapon supposedly being developed in the New Mexico desert, hailed the “Voice of God”.
Writing in 2000, he said: “Researchers working with high-power laser weapons discovered that they could create a glowing ball of fire in the sky by crossing the beams of two powerful infrared lasers.
“The beams were invisible to the naked eye, but where they intersected, their electric fields became so intense that they ripped apart molecules in the air, creating a plasma.
“By moving the laser beams around the sky, the researchers found they could shift the plasma ball back and forth at very high speed.”
The reporter was unsuccessful in proving the rumor and after consulting various scientists decided that the so-called “Voice of God” would be “possible in the lab but very difficult to produce in the sky.”
Even back in 1966 when avionics editor at Aviation Week Philip Klass published his analysis on UFOs, he concluded that some UFOs were “luminous plasmas of ionized air, a special form of ‘ball lightning’ generated by electric corona that occurs on high-tension power lines under certain conditions.”
Ball lightning itself can come about naturally from shorts in high-voltage electrical equipment or during electrical storms.
It comes after US officials released the highly anticipated public document after giving a secret briefing to Congress two weeks ago as people question what is in the full version of the dossier.
Speculation amongst UFO fans has been running rife as lawmakers and officials have all hinted at potentially significant information compiled in the classified section.
Richard Dolan, an American historian who has researched the topic for 25 years, claims one of his sources provided him with details apparently in the section that was briefed to certain US Congressmen and US Senators.
He alleged the classified portion was 70 pages long and included information about advanced – and potentially alien – propulsion systems and experimental craft using the tech are being tested at Area 51.
However, he made clear the information was “unconfirmed”.
Dismissed as a conspiracy theory for decades, former US defence officials, sitting politicians, and former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton have all acknowledged there is something unusual going on in our skies.
Meanwhile, UFO researcher and professor Bob McGwier claimed 14 videos were shown in the classified briefing – describing it as like a “science fiction movie”.
He claimed officials redacted everything they could from the report – which saw the public version slashed down to just nine pages.
The dossier however did admit there is something in the skies that cannot be explained – and did not rule out a potential alien origin.
Dolan claimed his source stated the Pentagon has classified projects investigating “ET related items” and “energy pulse propulsion, ion propulsion, anti-gravity propulsion, anti-matter propulsion”.
His insider alleged that some of the UFO sightings around Nevada are linked to secretive military base Area 51 as the US carries out secret testing on this unusual tech.
Area 51 has long been the source of speculation – and it’s previously been hinted by government insiders that the US may be “holding and testing” wreckage from UFOs.
