Can you identify this UFO?

Bournemouth Echo: Can you identify this UFO? Can you identify this UFO?

CAN you identify this flying object spotted over Bournemouth yesterday?

Reader Joe Weil saw it in the skies above Parley Manor. He says: "This object was in the sky for more than four hours.

"Although it moved up and down the object never changed position in every photo so it could not have been a balloon or any other object flying on a cord.

"I phoned Hurn airport, the general manger got the tower to have a look and they could see nothing on radar."

It's not the first time a mysterious object in the sky has made people wonder about an alien presence.

Chinese lantern? Poppycock! It's actually a counter-rotating twin-warp inter-galaxical poly-stellar vehicle with cross-demensional wormhole capablility. I parked it there myself and forgot to engage the introductory trial-offer cloaking device. I hope that clears this up.

looks to me like it maybe caught on the power lines,would explain why it only moved slightly and then eventually broke free after a couple of hours,so i guess it was a chinese lantern,or i agree it could have been an intergalactic warp powered Borg vessel lolz

No way! -- that's not the twin-warp model -- anyone can see that from the detail. I think you're trying to show off. That's just the single warp model, unless I'm very much mistaken.

Or a chinese lantern.

We try to pretend we're a tourist town, then when we get visitors we start to question the transport they arrive in, whether they have permission to trash King's Park, and whether we can see their faces behind the masks. No doubt our friendly car park attendants will be looking for any excuse to ticket or clamp them due to not being able to see that they've paid and displayed.

I say welcome to our inter-galactic friends. You probably won't learn much from the air show, but maybe Monkey World might be worth a visit to see how little the inhabitants of this planet have evolved in the last few million years.

Live long and prosper, dudes!

Ahoy Brethren,
I sent a nimble footed crewman aloft to Peapods ‘crows nest’ when we be 1st fore warned of ‘lights in thy sky’ he did shout down with much enthusiasm “It be as black as a lobsters armpit up here!!!”
Methinks if an ‘apparition’ and I quote “"Although it moved up and down the object never changed position in every photo so it could not have been a balloon or any other object flying on a cord.”….. That do pose a quandary, if it be observed to move? Then how may thy same ‘phantom’ be static unless a ‘visitant’ from a ‘Galactic Borough Council’ (sub-contracted/ out reached via BBC) have consumed all thy Brethrens common sense.

Maybe just an owl scare.
We send powerful lights up helium balloons to scare owls away from our cauliflower crops. An the balloons work for woodpigeons too.

Well it's unlikely to be a commercial aircraft flying into Bournemouth Airport. They are becoming more rare than UFO's.

These are those Chinese paper lanterns that catch the hot air from a tea-light and take off.
The air current takes them in varying directions and they've been known to go in different directions depending on their height and being in different air flows.

This is a real UFO and at very close proximity when I took it. Had a massive head ache for about 15 seconds. I took this while on holiday last year
