24 January 2017 11:09 am - 7     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) that hovered in the skies and spotted in several areas of the country on Saturday night could be a drone activity, Professor, Department of Physics, University of Colombo, Dr. Chandana Jayaratne said.

Speaking to Daily Mirror he said that he could not say it was an alien activity depending on the video footages and the pictures which captured the object, as they were not clear enough or possible man made.

However, he further said an investigation regarding this has been launched as the incident was reported in many parts of the country.

A Square shaped object radiating a bright light with a moving core has been captured by telescopes last Saturday (21) while it has hovering in Ratnapura, Hambantota, Galle and Matara areas. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    At least one man said the truth. Do not take UFOs as serious observations. Truth is, no aliens come in UFOs. NASA promote UFOs for funds and elsewhere observations are mere man made.
