Conversation at work: UFO sighting

The supervisor had a story when we sat down in the lunchroom. His son called, and told him he saw what looked like a huge bright light, about fifty feet across, in the vicinity of Suffolk, Virginia. Someone was with him, and when he called a UFO hotline, he wasn't the only one who saw it.

Irronically enough, we have a UFO buff in our department who took a bad time to be out on assignment.

Update

Yesterday, someone else at work talked about last night in Va. Beach seeing a sizeable craft in the sky "about the size of three F-16s" shaped roughly like a 5 pointed star with a light on each end. It hovered in the air like a Harrier jet, but didn't make a sound. He followed it for a while, then it took off. He told us a neighbor of his saw it too.

Not sure what's going on, possibly some military "X-Craft", but it's making for some conversation and joking around at work.

The UFO-buff is back at work, feeling "they" have come and reacting to my thinking this craft is terrestrial, "You don't believe me! Just you wait. One day you're gonna be abducted."

My response, "She better be cute."

God Damn it Mitch! Lynx has been trying for FOUR YEARS, what, isn't she cute? Put the butterfly net away Tarra, we try the taser first.

Maybe she'd have better luck if she came over here :wink:

Anyway, looks like the first UFO sighting was a dud. Someone went out for a ciggarette break, then me and Francis get called over, "Do you want to see a UFO?" He practicaly ran over, I walked over halfway thinking this was a put-on. Turned out there really was a bright light in the sky ...

Venus.

I double-checked the Internet at dinnertime, and the light was where Venus was supposed to me. So it looks like the first UFO mystery is resolved. The second one, I'm having strong doubts as the guy who saw it, since then he's been saying little but breaking wind jokes. The running gag is the aliens returned, gave him an anal probe, and the trauma got to his head.

Francis is acting like he's sure something is out there, "Just you wait, you'll see one someday."

I hope someday soon he gets his wish.

And I hope no one tosses him into the nuthouse ;-) :

Tarra, care to go over and give him a hug? :lol:

Well, the supervisor's son was interviewed about what he saw. You can find it here. Terrell Copeland is his name.

And naturally, the UFO & alien jokes began growing, our UFO buff doing a few of his own. He brought in some alien doll, which I promptly christened "Elvis." It wasn't long though before "Elvis left the building."

I can honestly say I have yet to see a UFO, but I have seen unusual aircraft, including one that I could SWEAR was a North American Aviation XB-70 Valkyrie, but the only officially existing one of those is in a museum.

Was I living in VB at the time? Damnit I'm always the last to find this stuff out. As Data would say "too late!"

The main trouble with UFOs is, of course, that once you find out what they are, they become IFOs or just plain FOs.

FOoey. :P

So would that make it a "FOo fighter?" Or in Isa's case a "Fooey fighter?" :lol:

Well, once again, the supervisor's son saw a UFO. This time he had a cell phone cam with him. The boss showed us where it was posted online durring break, but I reglected to write it down.

As it had helicopters around it, even the UFO buff thought "it's one of ours," an X-craft.

He did a little research, and came up with these: http://www.defenseindustrydaily.com/bli ... /index.php

The odd shape of the WALRUS could explain a few sightings.

This thing *looks* like a flying saucer even in broad daylight.

So mystery solved? Well, my UFO/conspiracy buddy's convinced.
