I liked this article from Channel 9 in Denver which is very careful not to call an “mystery” object flying over Denver a UFO.
The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating a mystery in the sky. A mysterious object flying over Denver nearly caused a mid-air collision Monday evening, 9Wants to Know has learned.
Feith listened to the air traffic recordings and believes the object could be one of three things:
– A military or law enforcement drone.
– A remote controlled aircraft.
– A large bird.
“Was this an unmanned vehicle that was part of some sort of law enforcement operation? Was this somebody that had flown a large model aircraft inadvertently into the airspace? Or was it just [a bird that] caught the pilot’s eye so he believed it was an aircraft but could have been a very large wing span bird,” Feith said.
It’s too bad they can’t call it a UFO since technically it stands for unidentified flying object. But if someone calls something a UFO it’s now meant to mean it’s a alien from another planet.
