999 caller mistakes moon for UFO
Telegraph ^ | )ct. 28, 2011

Posted on 10/30/2011 3:38:41 PM PDT by DeoVindiceSicSemperTyrannis

The caller told police that he had seen a UFO with "big bright lights" hovering in his back garden.

Taking the call seriously the female operator can be heard logging the bizarre information before asking if the UFO was making any "engine noise".

The caller replied that it was not, telling her: "I thought it was an aeroplane at first and then its just hovering with all these lights on."

After being told local authorities would investigate his claims, the caller hung up, only to ring back minutes later to confess that he had made an embarrassing mistake.

When asked by the call handler what he had seen, the man replied sheepishly: "You're not going to believe this, you're not going to believe it, it's the moon."

Before calling 911, you should always ask someone if the object you’re looking at is the moon or a UFO.

The term “drunken” comes to mind, too.

Honest mistake. Could happen to anyone.

I once had the fight of my life fending off an alien interloper who broke into the bedroom to get some kind of fluid samples.

When I awoke it turned out just to be a “rogue pillow”.

OR WAS IT ?!?! (cue spooky music)

This is as funny as the woman in Australia who claimed the UFO that ran her off the road was shaped like a Ford station wagon, except for the multicolored flames coming out of it.

The only rap was my wife beating me over the head saying “wake up you moron.”

As for music I was daydreaming of the old movies were Vincent Price is playing a pipe organ for dramatic effect.
Yeah. I’m old.

Picture this: You're in a car riding along a country road at night. The sky is clear; the stars are twinkling. The silhouettes of moonlit trees glide by the side window. Flash! A blue-white light beams through a gap in the forest. Flash! It happens again. And again, and again. It's following you.

In the movies, this is when the spaceship lands. A door opens. Eerie-green lights flood the roadside. Something alien steps out ... and you have a Close Encounter. Time to dial 9-1-1!

Relax. It's only Venus, the second planet from the Sun.

Back in the day... newspapers needed filler items to fill a half inch or so of column space at the end of a story. The material generally fell into one of two categories: Busses running off of mountain roads in some third world hellhole and “ain’t them British crazy” items. This falls into the latter class.
