A newscast on Argentine television came to a screeching halt last week when the anchors spotted an unidentified flying object soaring over the city of Buenos Aires. The strange sighting reportedlyoccurred on the program ‘Mananas Argentinas’ last Wednesday morning. As anchor Mariela Fernandez was standing in front of a giant screen which showed the city skyline and marveling at the unsettling amount of smog in the air, she suddenly caught sight of the UFO.

Clearly amazed by what she is seeing, Fernandez quickly points out the anomaly to her co-host Diego Angeli. The odd object appears to be a silver sphere that quickly moves across the sky and eventually vanishes from sight when it flies off screen. While we are unable to discern exactly what the anchors are saying, it seems clear that Fernandez was stunned by the oddity’s rapid speed. That said, one local account of the incident indicates that the duo may not have taken the sighting all that seriously as the segment was described as “hilarious.”

As to what the object may have been, aside from an alien craft, one prosaic possibility is that it was some kind of balloon. Be that as it may, the appearance of a UFO during a newscast is something we’ve seen quite a bit of lately as TV stations in OregonMilwaukee, and Buffalo have all had brushes with the unexplained this year. What do you think was spotted flying over Buenos Aires? Let us know at the Coast to Coast AM Facebook page.

Chinese City May Get Fake Moon

An aerospace executive in China has announced plans to launch a satellite which would serve as an artificial moon designed to illuminate a city at night. The unorthodox idea was reportedlyrevealed by Wu Chunfeng, who heads one of the main contractors for the Chinese space agency, at a conference last week. According to him, the faux moon will hover over the city of Chengdu emitting a “dusk-like glow” which would eliminate the need for street lights.

The illumination from the satellite, he said, will be adjustable and could cover an area of land ranging from five to fifty miles in diameter. While the idea may sound fanciful to some, Chungfeng appears to be quite serious about the endeavor, explaining that the concept has been tested extensively for the last few years and now looks to be almost fully feasible. With that in mind, the executive is eying a 2020 launch for the fake moon.

Lest one have concerns about how the illumination will impact wildlife in the area, an aerospace professor was quick to assure Chinese media that it will not be a problem thanks to its similarity in intensity to twilight. Be that as it may, whether the residents of Chengdu want another moon is another matter altogether. Alas, they probably won’t have much of a say in the decision, so hopefully they won’t mind living under the light of a fake moon.
