Did a UFO Crash in the Alps?
The centre quotes the man as saying: "I saw an extremely bright fireball cruising in the sky from east to west. It was much brighter than Jupiter. A long time went by before it eventually disappeared. I think I heard a hissing sound at the end."
CENAP, which is based in the city of Mannheim, has called on other eyewitnesses of the alleged sighting to come forward. The group of hobby researchers did not say whether the quoted witness caught the incident on camera.
This comes on the heels of news that an Ukrainian group of UFO researchers planned to build a monument in the memory of aliens who perished while trying to establish contact with humans.
Oleksandr Nalysman, a spokesman for the Berdychiv-based group, told local media contacts with alien civilisations were an "indisputable fact". He said: "We don’t pay enough attention to the fates of visitors from other planets who died on earth."
My, how those technologically advanced civilizations who can travel hundreds or even thousands of light years do seem to have trouble with the actual landing bits. How can aliens hope to open diplomatic relations with us lowly Earthlings of they keep smashing into mountains and deserts?
