Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) reports have made the news twice in the past two weeks. The first UFO spotting occurred in San Diego (video) on the New Year. Witnesses from all over the city reported the event and some were able to make a video recording of an odd configuration of lights hovering overhead. Local college students indicated they were relieved (from feeling crazy) when their astrophysicist roommates were unable to identify the object either. The latest large scale UFO spotting comes from a small town in Texas where witnesses observed a low flying, metallic object that appeared to be chased by fighter planes. Local citizens report that "People wonder what in the world it is because this is the Bible Belt, and everyone is afraid it’s the end of times … It was positively, absolutely nothing from these parts." Estimates on the object reportedly make it out to be up to a mile long. Perhaps Dennis Kucinich should make note for a campaign stop.
