UFO Observed In Western Iran

TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- A radiant unidentified flying object
was observed in the sky of Central Sepidar in the vicinity of
Bouyer Ahmad in western Iran at 19:00 hours local time (15:30

passing aircrafts have been reported as sound and safe.

The official further stated that investigations were underway by
police and other relevant authorities in this regard.
