UFO Sighting in Sandusky, Except Not Really

Posted By on Thu, Oct 6, 2011 at 2:00 PM


Folks in Sandusky were treated to an aerial abnormality that was definitely maybe a UFO sighting except not really at all.

The Man will try to tell you this was probably just a meteor and The Man's Assistant (an expert from a "planetarium") will tell you this happens all the time and matches the description of what people saw, but what else is The Man going to say?

The Sandusky Register got the real story
, straight from the mouths of witnesses. Here's what they had to say.

“All I can tell you is it was a UFO,” Prieur said. “I’ve only seen one other thing like it, and that was up in Michigan.”

Yes! Believe! Of course there are aliens in Michigan!

“I’ve seen a lot of strange things in my life, but this was a chart-topper,” he said. “And I’ll tell you one thing — it wasn’t no airplane.”

Damn straight! And it wasn't no meteor either!

“I was just kinda like, ‘That was weird,’ but I didn’t think much about it,” Lowery said. “That’s one of those things — if there’s nobody else around to see it, you don’t go around talking about it. People will think you’re crazy.”

No. Never. But good advice. Better go tell a newspaper.
