An object suspected to be an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) was visible in several areas around the country last night, the Department of Physics, Colombo University said.

Professor Chandana Jayaratne said the flying object was seen by many people in areas including Katana, Hambantota, Homagama and Trincomalee.

“I also received video footage of movements of the flying object. A proper investigation should be conducted to issue credible information in this regard,” Prof. Jayaratne said. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    The objects could be space debris or some stones from the dust from other planets. This has no relation to living beings in outer space.
