NEWS AGENCIES SAY A CONTINENTAL AIRLINES FLIGHT REPORTED AN UNIDENTIFIED PHENOMENON NEAR HOUSTON, USA:

An ABC news affiliate and the ANSA press agency in Argentina are reporting that a Continental Airlines pilot has reported a UFO or a phenomenon that looked "like a comet."

Taking off from Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport on May 26, 2008, at 10:15 a.m., Flight 1544 shortly reported an unknown flying object near the large airliner. The UFO was close enough to the jet to cause safety concerns.

Continental Airlines has confirmed that the jet landed safely in Cleveland, Ohio. The FAA's best guess is that the object may be a model rocket, some of which are capable of heights of 10,000 feet. Rumours say the FBI is investigating the report.

COMPANY SOLD 45.000 "UFO-BALLOONS" IN 2007:

A ufologist colleague indicates that the Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad recently stated that during year 2007, the Van Dasler company (www.ufo-balloons.com) sold via the web no less than 45.000 balloons of the Thai lantern type; which they call "UFO-balloons", with exports in many countries.

These Thai lanterns (below) are a usual and increasingly frequent cause of UFO sighting reports.

THAI LANTERNS CALLED UFOs IN THE VENDEE, FRANCE:

On May 3, 2008, a young bank clerk, aged 34, on holiday in the island of Yeu for the Easter holidays had seen two luminous balls in the sky and was puzzled, reported the sighting, and soon newspapers and TV channels, Ouest-France, the AFP France-Info, LCI, TF1, talked about the "mystery of the UFOS in Vendée."

The witness had initially thought the balls could be aircraft headlights, but there was no engine sound, which directed him towards the idea that they could be UFOs. Local ufologists and the GEIPAN then opened an investigation.

But the explanation came from a young Parisian architect, celebrating his wife's birthday: he had released two Thai lanterns that evening at this place, whose trajectory proved to match very well with the indications given by the witness and other people having seen them.
