Unsolved mystery: Conn. trooper, motorist report
glowing object, size of whale, fell from sky (AP)
Wow, what a story! :woohoo:
Meteorite? Cargo from a plane? UFO? What was it???
Paging Douglas Adams!!!
Btw, wfgodot, your posts have been missed!
Thanks. Much thanks. A pleasure to be back aboard, spotting green, glowing, whale-sized objects falling from the sky.
When my son was younger he once claimed he saw pink elephants wandering the streets of Buffalo at 2 in the morning. I wonder if these two incidents could be related?
My guess is a meteorite. It's interesting that it would be described as "whale sized" though. LOL. Which whale? And even though it may look like it landed in the lake, meteorites are pretty deceptive in where they land. I am wondering about any noise? That stuff does make noise. LOL.
And yes, WFG, you have been missed...
Bantam Lake Ski Club prepares to welcome the alien conquerors of earth its waters now house.
Kimster, did you lose something?
Perhaps it is a years worth of sanitized waste from the International Space Station. I know sometimes small blue icy things from planes come down and these are from the toilets! But the atmosphere is supposed to break things up on entry so.... who knows?
A bit more added to the original AP report:
Green, the size of a whale = Michael Moore on St.Pat's Day.
It's ironic that someone on my local news forum posted a thread about seeing the exact same thing on Friday night, April 6th. He said he knows he saw a glowing multi-colored object in the sky.
I have heard from intergalactic authority that it was Kryptonite.
If any Kryptonians are reading here, please stay away from that area until HAZMAT has a chance to dispose of the danger. :tyou:
It was a space whale. Sometimes they lose their equilibrium and crash. But they melt in water so you won't find any traces.
Hard to think of good puns for this one: "In returning to earth and in keeping with the present-day environmental movement, white whale Moby Dick has gone green" just doesn't have the correct cadence to it.
Is taking a while to load for me. Could be my internet though. (I used to swear they had squirrels on a gerbil treadmill powering the internet here in Hawaii, but since squirrels are illegal here and none can be found---I've decided they use mongoose's because they are everywhere here).
If someone gets it to load, put in parameters of a whale and see what it gets up?
so they looked for debris on the surface of the lake or did they actually look under the water where the huge meteorite would've sank had it actually landed in the lake?
