Mystery solved

THE UFO OBSERVED ABOVE ROMANS WAS JUST A SOUNDING BALLOON

ROMANS. -- For more than an hour, many witnesses observed a strange luminous phenomenon hovering high in the sky last Saturday morning.

After investigation, it turns out that this phenomenon has nothing to do with a UFO since the meteorological center of MontÚlimar confirmed the presence above our region, on the same day and at the same time, of a pressure level balloon launched by the center of Aire-sur-Adour in the Landes. This balloon is intended for the study of the winds as well as for taking the temperature.

It has intrigued many people who have been able to observe it.
