Police officer investigates the moon

An in-house police publication recently revealed the case of an investigation of a 'suspicious light'.

The humorous incident was detailed in the magazine's Dogberry column. According to the report, a British policeman had been on duty in Worcestershire when he had witnessed a bright light shining from the other side of some hills. Concerned that someone was up to suspicious activities, he called up his Sergeant to report that he was going to investigate and that he might need backup.

A short time later the same officer reported back in to reveal what he had found. "Twenty minutes later the PC called his sergeant back to reassure him that everything was ok and that he had found the source of the light," the magazine article read. "This diligent PC had in fact discovered the moon."

"A British policeman put his colleagues on alert as he investigated a "suspicious bright light" - only to find it was the moon, an in-house magazine for the police reported on Wednesday."

Believer's in what ..exactly ?...I suspect that as usual you have put two and two together, [and in your predictable little mind] have come up with some crazy misidentified UFO/ET story, haven't you OA? When no where in the story linked does it say that the 'hapless officer' ever entertained the notion that the light that he was investigating, was ET related!...His suspicions of the light could be for any number of reasons!..And the fact that this story, [which is after all.. at best a little newspaper stocking filler] has been posted in the UFO/ET section of the forum is enough of an excuse f...

You are the one leaping to ridiculous and predictable assumptions - who or what are you defending? The Believers suggest that accounts by professional/trained observers cannot be questioned, whereas they misinterpret the mundane the same as Joe Public. Well that is unless the professional/trained observers don't agree with them, then they are thrown under the bus so fast it would make your head spin.

I'll give the cop credit. At least he was doing his job instead of feeding his face with donuts.
