U.S. Customs and Border Protection quietly released 12 UAP videos in August that weren’t discovered publicly until just now. One of those videos bears an eerily similar appearance to an orb video from the latest season of “The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch.”

The Border Patrol Video Shows an Orb Possibly Disappearing Into the Ground & Reappearing

The UFO videos from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are quite fascinating, and Post Apocalyptic Media will be exploring them more in the coming days.

But the first one to catch our eye shows an orb floating across the screen, seemingly disappearing into the ground, and then reappearing moments later. While the orb seems to resemble a balloon in its early movements, that changes as the video progresses. 

Be sure to watch the entire video. Something about the orb caught the camera operator’s eye, compelling them to follow its movements and continue looking for it even after it “disappeared” into the ground.

If you prefer to watch on YouTube, here’s another version we have posted to Post Apocalyptic Media’s channel:

This is where to look when the orb reappears:

The videos were posted in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, according to CBP’s website. 

Skinwalker Ranch Had a Similar Experience in the Latest Season

This video is even more fascinating to UAP enthusiasts who have been following “The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch.” In the latest season, researchers discovered video of a similar looking orb that also appeared to move and in and out of the ground. Only, this orb was moving much faster than the one in the CBP video. 


In Season 4 Episode 12, the team did a rocket and helicopter experiment. Later, while viewing the footage, they realized that a glowing, white orb appeared to move across the mesa, disappear into it, and then reappear on the other side. You can watch the video of the orb in action below. The part where it is seen going in and out of the mesa is around 8:20 to 8:40 in the video or so. 

It’s fascinating just how similar some of the orbs are to each other. The CBP orb is certainly similar to the Utah orb sighting at Skinwalker Ranch. The biggest difference is how much faster the one at Skinwalker is moving. It seems to have a much more pointed objective, and is tougher to explain away than the one in the CBP video. 

After the episode aired, there was an interesting discussion on Reddit in which a user claimed they had seen orbs at Skinwalker Ranch quite a bit.

There’s actually so many you think you’re wrong and mistaking a plane or satellite. I saw 3 in one night that look identical to what’s in the video. They stick out because they are solid white, not flashing or having green and red lights, and change directions. They also disappear like the video shows and I thought it was my eyes playing tricks. But they always look like they fade and fall to the right or left quickly. You have to look close in the video but it fades as it dives to the left and down of the frame. As if maybe entering a worm hole or traveling into another dimension.”
