We don’t often get a lot of debunked sighting stories, but when we do, we like to report them just to be fair. Plus, their often more hilarious than a Cheech and Chong movie starring Dick Cheney.
According to the Arab News, police in Jeddah received several calls about a UFO sighting over a period of three days. Callers described the object as a “unidentified floating object that was seen in Al-Arbaeen lagoon in Jeddah’s downtown district, known as Al-Balad.”
Police actually held a stakeout on the lagoon and discovered it was actually just a trash bin on the surface of the water that gave off a mysterious profile when viewed from a distance.
