Hertfordshire Police have released the audio of a male 999 caller reporting a bright UFO "coming towards him" in his back garden, only to ring back minutes later to declare that its presence was in fact entirely explainable.
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."

Did they call just before or just after they answered a CNN poll stating that they approved of Obama-butt?
M-O-O-N. That spells UFO.
Hmmm, I did do a search.
At the expense of defending an easy and fun target, I will say that I have seen the Moon on a few occasions where it happened to be obscured in one way or another by something unusual... and it’s possible for it to look extremely odd.
