While flights across the US have been cancelled due to the deep freeze of the polar vortex, flights in Bremen, Germany were cancelled for an entirely different reason: a UFO.
On Monday night, an unidentified flying object showed up on Bremen Airport’s radar several times over three hours, causing one flight to be cancelled, one diverted and other delayed as police and airport officials investigated the UFO activity.
Bremen police were alerted to potential UFO activity when a patrol car apparently saw the object around 6:30 p.m. Witnesses report that “It looked like a plane. It had lights but was a lot louder.”
A police helicopter was sent off in pursuit, but was unable to track down the UFO. A Bremen police spokesman said, “We still don’t know what it was, but it was there.”
