British Navy comes close to fire at UFO
British Navy comes close to fire at UFO
British Navy comes close to fire at UFO's
Friday, 05 June 2009

A British Navy warship may have come within seconds of opening fire on Unidentified Flying Objects above Merseyside, possibly narrowly avoiding the precipitation of an interstellar war and the extirpation of humanity by testy aliens.

Reports have it that the UFOs - speculated to have been visiting spacecraft from beyond the solar system - were tracked on naval weapons radars.

The revelation comes from the Telegraph, reporting on last week's sightings of "orange, ball-shaped" UFOs cruising above scouse beauty-spots between South Liverpool and Southport. The orange, blob-like flying balls - said by some witnesses to have "dropped fire" at times - were assessed by some to be floating Chinese lanterns, but this theory was widely disparaged among headline-writers in favour of the more crowd-pleasing interstellar visitors hypothesis. Also, Chinese lanterns don't move 3,000 miles/hr.

So far, so what. But then the Telegraph entered the debate with stunning revelations from "an ex-military source" regarding the presence of HMS Daring, a Royal Navy Type 45 destroyer which was docked in Liverpool as the UFOs passed over.

"The guns on the ships are powered by radar," [?] said the source, "but military radar and civilian radar work on different frequencies, so that is probably why the airport said it had not picked anything up."

The Telegraph says that the UFOs were actually "countermeasure flares used to test the radar systems of huge anti-missile guns on the ship". The broadsheet carries on to say: Countermeasure flares are designed to prevent radar-based missile systems locking on to aircraft by providing multiple targets.

The warship, which was docked at Liverpool's cruise liner terminal, is fitted with radar-activated Phalanx guns, which are capable of firing more than 3,000 rounds a minute.

"What happened was a plane flew over at high altitude following the path of the river and dropped the counter measures, which the radar tracked," said the paper's unnamed source.

Mysterious Orange Lights Baffle Britain
[link to news.aol.com]
(June 5) - Clusters of orange lights that have been illuminating the night sky across Britain and Holland are baffling onlookers, the Daily Mail reported Thursday.
These strange clusters of orange lights have been baffling onlookers across Britain. Witnesses have said the UFOs dart in between one another in perfect formation. These cell phone images were snapped by an onlooker in Birmingham, England, last week.


There are different explanations for the lights, which one man said he captured on his cell phone. An ex-military official told the Daily Mail that the lights were dropped by jets to simulate the path of a missile in order to test the warship's radar systems. But a woman in Lincoln, England -- where some lights were spotted -- said they were nothing more than Chinese lanterns that had been set off at her wedding reception.
Still others said the glowing orbs were an armada of invading UFOs, a theory that elicits scoffs from some experts.
One man who saw the lights on May 27 described them this way:
"They were traveling 15 at a time and every six minutes more seemed to be coming over the horizon. They were not planes. They were not balloons. Each one was the size of a building," said guesthouse owner Auberon Hedgecoe of Huntingdon, England.
The sightings even prompted military officials to check their logs for aircraft activity. But an air force spokesman for a nearby base said it was closed when the last activity was sighted.
