A UFO that hovered over the West Midlands towns of Oldbury and Dudley at the weekend, caused havoc on the roads in the area, and widespread panic back on its home planet!
A single blue disc-shaped object was sighted in the sky above Oldbury just after 8pm on Saturday evening by residents who busily began snapping photos for souvenirs.
Trouble flared, however, when the craft moved westwards over Dudley. There, it hovered motionless for eighteen minutes, before, according to eyewitnesses, "flashing wildly and jerking about".
Astronomers at the BCM observatory in Stourbridge detected long range radio signals emanating from the craft, and tracked their destination to a tiny star known as ET60H0M3 in a galaxy far, far away.
For two hours, messages were transmitted between the UFO and its home planet until just before 11pm, when the Stourbridge observatory equipment registered an enormous explosion on ET60H0M3, and the planet disintegrated.
Local historian and curator of the Black Country Museum Dave Brooton said he experienced a "massive disturbance in the Force". The UFO then disappeared from view, and radar was unable to locate its whereabouts.
Dudley woman Tara Rabit, who lives on the Wren's Nest housing estate, said:
"It were grayt! Broight loights all noight! Then it just disappearded!"
