UFO, Whoops Meteor, Sighted in Australia

There’s been a flood of sightings in the land down under of a mysterious object hovering in the skies. It turned out to just be a meteor.

According to the Herald Sun in Melbourne, the paper received a “flood” of phone calls about a UFO spotted in the skies earlier this week.

The story states witnesses described the mysterious object as “an amazing bright blue light in the sky with a long blue trail.” Members of the local Astronomical Society confirmed the object was just a meteor. Oh well, maybe next time.

Reporters Believe UFOs Are Actually Pranks on UFO Watchers

Some reporters in Newbury, England may have discovered that a string of UFO sightings really weren’t UFOs at all. They were pranks.

According to Newbury Today, the newspaper received an anonymous package explaining the mystery.

The paper said the package contained a “UFO Hot Air Balloon,” which carries a lantern designed to trick people looking for UFOs late at night. Some of the people who spotted the mysterious lights don’t believe the balloons are the same thing.

UFO Actually NASA Experiment

Look, up in the sky! Is it a UFO? Is it a flying saucer? No, it’s a NASA experiment.

According to a Gallup Independent, a glowing object found in the skies over Gallup, N.M. was actually a NASA experiment.

The newspaper claims NASA was testing a new high-altitude weather balloon to study surface temperatures on the sun and how those temperatures affect the Earth. Apparently, they caused people to see UFOs.

LA Times Disputes UFOTube Videos

The LA Times did a damaging mini-expose on some recent UFO videos that popped up on YouTube.

Specificially, they take down the famed “UFO Haiti” video caught supposedly by a passing tourist with a mini-camera.

They spotted several imperfections in the video and the story surrounding the video. The chief problems being that no one reported seeing a UFO in the area depicted in the video. They also claim it felt “too real” claiming that the video was able to track the object almost flawlessly. But the biggest giveaway were the trees. They apparently found two palm trees in the background that looked exactly the same. Gotcha.
