Indian Air Force jet intercepts 'UFO'

57 posts in this topic

The aircraft was scrambled when radar stations picked up an object flying at a height of 28,000ft.

Officials took the decision to scramble the jet when the unidentified object was spotted flying towards India from across the border with Pakistan. Air traffic control cleared the area of known aircraft to avoid incident during the pursuit.

The good old weather balloon. What would we do without these things to explain all UFO's...

In this case we have "UFO" being used in the true, albeit less entertaining sense - an object in the sky that was not immediately identified. Of course 75% of the readers will substitute ET vehicle for "UFO" and feel the evidence is mounting.

It is good to get a realistic explanation to the encounter rather than conspiracy and fantasy, however, the entire article is so mundane I am surprised it even got reported on this site. There isn't a shred of unexplained about it outside of the duration of spotting it on radar and intercepting it approximately 10 mins later.

Slow news day today I guess!

So you don't believe the explanation? If so what do you think it was?

Many (if not most) weather balloons carry a Radar Reflector with the express intent of being visible to aircraft and ATC

Hearsay and weather balloons, have we wrapped up the whole UFO phenomenon with two posts?

No Dr No, I am more than happy with the explanation. It was just a quip based on the number of UFO claims that turn out to be weather balloons, this was a classic example, amplified by a title that suggested this case was not solved.

Aliens are disguising themselves as weather balloons now? What will they think of next?

Yes but you need to understand, just sending a balloon up will be pointless, they always carry some sort of sensors in a payload for whatever they are doing

pakistan is not interested in weather in the slightest, all pakistan is interested in is jammu and kashmir, they will do anything to get there hands on that piece of land in india since 1950's

and i think this story has something to do with J&K conflict

Pretty much. Aliens would have been more interesting though.

They would have been better trying to intercept the 20,000 rats in the Karni Mata temple! See: http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/news/262933/20000-rats-roam-indias-karni-mata-temple

That's what happens when there is no evidence.

Don't forget ball lightening, using one unknown to explain another unknown.

Several types of atmospheric plasma are documented and known to exist. They are not unknowns as much as not well understood.
