After orbiting the Earth, it either fell or was brought down by New Years Eve gunfire.
An Unidentified flying object was found in Santa Monica New Years day, 2017. The object was lying near trash cans, it’s alien occupant having fled the wreckage. But not before munching on discarded Christmas trees that lay nearby.
The UFO may have been a casualty of New Years Eve gunfire over Afghanistan. It may have simply been a 20 year old NASA launch whose orbit decayed. Or perhaps something more exotic.
Two men claim to have seen a flaming UFO overhead in Devon, UK on December 28, 2016. Mark Emmons and his friend, Tyron Osborne snapped several photos of the flaming UFO.
A ‘flaming UFO’ has been spotted soaring above Exmouth in Devon. At least that’s what this musician claims he saw shortly after 1pm on Wednesday. According to Mark Emmins, the oval-shaped luminous object appeared in the sky and remained there for about three hours. His friend, Tyron Osborne, snapped the rare sight as the pair looked on in amazement, convinced it was a UFO.
Perhaps the rocket found in the Santa Monica alley was the same flaming object seen over the United Kingdom, after it fell to Earth. It may hae completed several more orbits before crashing in California on New Years Eve.
An unidentified flying object, or UFO, in its most general definition, is any apparent anomaly in the sky that is not identifiable as a known object or phenomenon. Culturally, UFOs are associated with claims of visitation by extraterrestrial life or government-related conspiracy theories, and have become popular subjects in fiction. UFOs are often identified after their sighting. Sometimes, however, UFOs cannot be identified because of the low quality of evidence related to their sightings.
Stories of fantastical celestial apparitions have been told since antiquity, but the term “UFO” (or “UFOB”) was officially created in 1953 by the United States Air Force (USAF) to serve as a catch-all for all such reports. In its initial definition, the USAF stated that a “UFOB” was “any airborne object which by performance, aerodynamic characteristics, or unusual features, does not conform to any presently known aircraft or missile type, or which cannot be positively identified as a familiar object.” Accordingly, the term was initially restricted to that fraction of cases which remained unidentified after investigation, as the USAF was interested in potential national security reasons and/or “technical aspects” (see Air Force Regulation 200-2).
During the late 1940s and through the 1950s, UFOs were often referred to popularly as “flying saucers” or “flying discs”. The term UFO became more widespread during the 1950s, at first in technical literature, but later in popular use. UFOs garnered considerable interest during the Cold War, an era associated with a heightened concern for national security. Various studies have concluded that the phenomenon does not represent a threat to national security nor does it contain anything worthy of scientific pursuit (e.g., 1951 Flying Saucer Working Party, 1953 CIA Robertson Panel, USAF Project Blue Book, Condon Committee).
