Strange lights and sightings of unusual objects in the sky by local residents have a lot of people excited including UFO experts, convinced that we, as in humble earthlings, are not alone. At least that's the conclusion that some citizens of Conishiolme, north east Lincolnshire in England have decided. Shades of X-Files!
The ultimate proof according to believers, is an ear-piercing boom in the early morning hours with visual "proof" focusing on one of 60 foot blades from a 200 foot high wind turbine, which was ripped off and another left twisted and useless. One of the witnesses described the craft as "a 'massive ball of light' with 'tentacles going right down to the ground' over the wind farm..."
Tentacles? A leftover special effect from the "War of the Worlds" film, perhaps? Where's Tom Cruise when you need him?
The Ministry of Defence said it was not looking into the incident as there was no evidence of a threat to UK airspace. Where's Muldaur and Scully when you need them?
Photos of the damaged blades along with images of the lights in the sky and more details of the sightings can be found here:
Update on UFO story: January 9. the government's explanation
The UFO allegedly responsible for wrecking a wind turbine could have been a secret unmanned stealth bomber on test flights.
Where have we heard that story before? If it's so secret, how come so many people spotted it?
The claim came from Ministry of Defence insiders who reportedly said that a black delta-wing craft called Taranis was making test runs on the coastal bombing ranges at Donna Nook and North Coates in Lincolnshire, near to the site of the damaged turbine.
One assumes that we earthlings are expected to believe that the test craft was flown by rookie pilots who flew too low and accidentally sheared off the blade. The next explanation will be weather balloons.
The Taranis, named after the Celtic god of thunder, is about the same size as a Hawk jet and is equipped with stealth equipment and an 'autonomous' artificial intelligence system.
Celtic god of thunder? Yet another explanation for the "boom" heard by local residents? Thunder = boom?
The plane is being developed by BAE Systems and has been designed to deliver weapons to battlefields in other continents.
Another rumor has frozen urine dropped from the sky as the culprit. The UFO explanation is definitely preferable.
