UFO at Loch Ness
It started with reports of a UFO seen over Loch Ness.
The UFO was said to be balloon shaped and seemed to be floating above the loch.
The object apparently, then dropped to the surface of the loch. To the surprise of the witnesses, the object that had appeared to be lighter than air: sank.
The emergency services were called and witnesses say that they were amazed at the speed and magnitude of the response.
There were helicopters and apart from police there were elements from both the Royal Air Force and the Coast Guard. For three hours, a vigorous search was carried out of the surface, sub-surface and surrounding area. Not only were they looking for the object but also signs of any one who may have been piloting the object.
Even though it was an intensive search, nothing was found. The object had either sank too deep to be detected or had simply disappeared.
For many years Loch Ness has attracted interest, due to its supposed monster for which there have been many reported sightings.
There has however, been a substantial drop in the number of monster sightings at the Loch over the last two years, which has risen to speculation that perhaps the monster had died.
Is this UFO sighting some kind of hoax, in order to try and maintain mystery to the loch and thereby keep scientists and the curious visiting the area?
Obviously there are those who suspect this to be the case, especially as the apparent appearance seems to resemble a balloon of some kind.
However, the mystery is: If this was some kind of balloon or even a hang glider, that has also been suggested, how was it able to defy all our known laws of physics? If this object was lighter than air, how could it sink so deep so quickly?
If the object was heavier than it looked and was under power, who or what was piloting it?
It is of course possible that this object was designed to be both flyable and useable as a submersible. If this was the case, then again, who not only piloted this but who built it?
Whatever the answers to these questions, one thing is certain: it has attracted new interest in Loch Ness.
Is it possible that this UFO is somehow linked to the disappearance of the monster?
