UFO Takes A Look At O'Hare, Retreats


If a spaceship were to travel across the vast emptiness of
space, enter Earth's atmosphere, and then find itself hovering
above the busy ramp at Chicago's O'Hare Airport, can you blame
those astronauts for deciding to just turn around and leave,
without even stopping to say hello?

According to about a dozen United Air Lines workers, including
some pilots, that's just what happened one overcast night in

The observers said they saw a flying elliptical object, dark
gray and about 20 feet across, that hovered about 1,000 feet or
so above the airport for several minutes about 4:30 p.m.

They told their story to the FAA and the airline, who kept it
quiet until a Chicago Tribune reporter got a whiff recently and
started asking questions.

The FAA at first denied any knowledge of the event, but after
the Tribune filed a request for documents a record of a
telephone call from a United supervisor surfaced.

However, the agency has no intention of investigating. "When the
lights shine up into the clouds, sometimes you can see funny
things. That's our take on it," said FAA spokeswoman Elizabeth
Isham Cory.

Meanwhile, France's National Space Studies Center plans to post
its own online database of UFO reports soon, maybe by the end of
this month, according to Reuters.

About 1,600 incidents are in the archive, with some 6,000
reports, including many from airline pilots.
