England: UFO spotted over Exmouth

Newly-published Ministry of Defence records have revealed a UFO sighting over Exmouth.

According to reports released under the Freedom of Information Act, an unidentified object was recorded over the town on July 18, 2001.

The MoD is contacted in all UFO cases, the aim being to investigate whether the country's airspace has been threatened. However, since 2000, the MoD has simply logged all public sightings and saved resources for other matters.

The records state: "The object was cream-coloured. Was traveling at an altitude of about 8,000 feet."

Comment: No doubt that the "more than 100 sightings a year" can be simply explained...

Earthlights on Peru's Earthquake?

Nevertheless, the National Hydrology and Meteorology told El Comercio that it didn't detect any anomaly in Lima's skies, and assured that this phenomenon could have been caused by the light of a beacon or some spinning panels that exist in the city".
