UFOs are a fan favourite among conspiracy theorists. Flying saucers have been spotted often roaming the skies of America, scouting the land of opportunity. But a UFO spotting in India is unheard of. After all, why would aliens come to India of all places, unless they love tropical climate and butter chicken?
However, things seem to be on the turn. A boy in Kanpur claims to have clicked photos of a UFO floating about the UP skies, according to an Indian Express report.
The boy, Abhijit, a resident of Shyamnagar locality in Kanpur, was just trying to capture the clouds on his smartphone when he captured a flying saucer on Wednesday.
According to a report in International Business Times, even the boy's father, Santosh, claimed that the photos were real and said that any lab could verify its authenticity.
"I like nature photography and when I saw various shapes of clouds in the sky I started clicking pictures on my phone. While I was going through the clicked pictures in the photo gallery, I saw a round object in the photographs and when I zoomed to take a closer look at it, I noticed it was a UFO," the report quoted Abhijit as saying.
It's not the first time aliens have been interested in India. There was a UFO sighting reported from Kolkata in 2007.
According to a Times of India report, the UFO looked like a fireball, "that moved very rapidly and even seemed to change its shape and size."
And not just Kolkata, UFOs have been touring India, if sightings are to be trusted. According to a report in The Hindu, a bank officer had spotted five specks of bright orange lights moving in the night sky.
West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, now UP. If the father and child duo are to be believed, it seems aliens have taken a liking for India. Should we worry?
However, Twitter seems to be more excited than scared about the UFO sighting.
