Venus Commonly Mistaken for UFO

If you’re looking up in the sky and you see a spherical object hanging in the night, could it be a UFO?

According to WRAL.com, it’s actually Venus.

Apparently, at this time of year, Venus can be highly visible with the naked eye and it’s often mistaken and reported as a UFO in the skies. It’s not uncommon that so many people may see it as a UFO since it’s the third brightest object in the sky.

Ministry of Defense Releases More UFO Files

The British Ministry of Defense (or as they spell it, “Defence”) released more UFO files to the public and they are, to say the least, interesting.

According to thisissouthwales.co.uk, only five UFO reports have been made in South Wales in the last decade. Only FIVE in the last decade? Come on, South Wales. You’ve got quotas to meet.

Of course, a spokesman for the Ministry said none of the sightings have any clear cut evidence that UFOs actually exist.

“To date, the MOD knows of no evidence which substantiates the existence of these alleged phenomena.”
