Luminous UFO Appears In Jordanian Sky
[Original headline: UFO in Amman sky hours before 2002]
AMMAN: An unidentified flying object (UFO) lit up the sky above the
Jordanian capital a few hours before the New Year, an AFP
correspondent and other witnesses reported.
The rectangular luminous object flew in a circle over the western part
of Amman Monday [Dec 31] around 8:00 pm (1800 GMT) for about one
minute before disappearing.
Jordan's al-Dustour daily reported that it had received many phone
calls from Amman residents who said they spotted a "mysterious" flying
object in Monday night's cloudy sky.
No definitive explanation has yet been given, but the Jordanian
meteorological services said the UFO might have been a satellite while
police reckoned the light could have come from fireworks or a laser
used for the New Year celebrations.
