Wednesday was a clear night in Yuma, Arizona when dozens of witnesses saw UFOs flying over their heads. Many of them pulled out their telephones and cameras to record the space crafts and post them on YouTube. Others called 911 and local news stations.
The terrified residents said they saw flashing lights in a triangular pattern. They were frightened because it looked like the crafts were dropping balls of light to the ground. These light balls could have been anything, possibly smaller crafts filled with space aliens that would begin to invade the Earth starting in Yuma. Yuma, Arizona? Really?
According to Examiner.com those weren't Unidentified Flying Objects hovering in the skies but instead it was the result of nighttime maneuvers conducted by units at the nearby Marine Corps Air Station. Nothing more than a big misunderstanding.
"We had our Harriers flying over Barry Goldwater range, which is close to where people were saying they saw something unusual," said Capt. Traci Reidinger, an officer at Yuma's MCAS.
The falling balls of light were parachute flares being dropped to the ground below the jets.
So the question remains, are there really flying saucers jetting around in the skies? Everyday 911 gets phone calls from people who really believe that they see strange objects buzzing around overhead. To the common resident these sightings are strange and can be terrifying but obviously not all the strange lights being seen are crafts from another planet looking for a world to occupy.
Maybe if the populace keeps their minds focused as they watch the skies for visiting extraterrestrials who want to "phone home", they might understand that some lights flashing in the sky could just be what they are, just flashing lights.
But then again, there is that chance that some of those blinking objects just might be UFOs looking for a rare mineral to help their crafts cross the galaxy so they can get back to their planet.
Keep watching the skies but don't get too frightened until something actually asks to be taken to our leader.
