London, Jan 30 (ANI): After a number of reported alien sightings in the UK, a case in Germany has emerged, in which fighter pilots were scrambled in a UFO drama over German airpsace.
The mystery object was tracked moving across the entire country at high speed after being spotted by Germany's air traffic controllers on January 19.
Investigators have already checked and excluded conventional aircraft, weather balloons and freak atmospheric conditions.
"We have ruled out all the conventional possibilities - it is a mystery," the Sun quoted Axel Raab of Germany's air traffic safety office, the DFS, as saying.
German air force jets were put on red alert and there were dozens of reports of the mysterious object as it flew across southern Germany.
It disappeared above an area used by American troops on training exercises.
"It confused radar operators because it kept flicking on and off the screen. Then it simply vanished," Raab said. (ANI)
