Uri Geller, who saw a UFO in an image sent to him by an Israeli lieutenant colonel, was a little shocked. 

However, shortly after the image was published, it was judged to be fake. 

Posting on the social media platform, Geller sent two photos of what was initially believed to be a ship floating in the skies over Israel.

"Pentagon official suggests alien ship lurking in the Solar System may be watching us with small probes!" Geller said, but later had to admit that the image was actually a doctored street lamp.

"A draft paper by a Harvard scientist and the head of the Pentagon's UFO office floated the idea that an alien ship might be in the Solar System and sending small probes called 'dandelion seeds' to explore the planets within," Geller said.

"Please all of you try to decipher this strange object in the photo and let me know what it is. Could this be some kind of time warp?" he asked.

But Geller's question was answered "no" after people found the original photo of the alleged airplane. 

It turned out that the UFO in question was actually a doctored image of a street lamp.
