Authorities in several countries were alerted following sightings of a strange swirling object in the sky.

Reports came in from Georgia, Armenia, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and other countries in the region, observers described the spectacle as a swirling, shining object that gave off a smoke trail. While rumors have persisted that the object was some sort of missile test there have been no confirmations of operations being carried out in the area at that time.

"A spaceship flying over Israel? A satellite or a Russian ballistic missile? An unidentified flying object observed in Middle East countries Thursday night has caused panic, with people calling the police to say they witnessed a UFO."

Oh really? since when were "lighting conditions" all the way to Israel in the June event ever discussed in here? NEV-ah. And your above interfax does not show any for this missile event, either. And did people in Russia get any film footage of this launch that ended up on either Utube or RuTube? Nice spinjob, though

Anybody find any more press or blog reports on a new Israeli UFO sighting as described on 'ATS' above? I can't find anything, or any recent youtube video or on '', the Russian equivalent. Is it all just a belated re-echo of the original June event?

Sounds like it to me. Even Dr. Yigal is mentioned. Unless maybe he's the 'go to' guy over there.
