While flights across the US have been cancelled due to the deep freeze of the polar vortex, flights in Bremen, Germany were cancelled for an entirely different reason: a UFO.

On Monday night, an unidentified flying object showed up on Bremen Airport’s radar several times over three hours from 6.30pm to 9.30pm, causing one flight to be cancelled, one diverted and other delayed as police and airport officials investigated the UFO activity.

According to the Local.DE, Bremen police were alerted to potential UFO activity when a patrol car apparently saw the object around 6:30 p.m. Witnesses report that “It looked like a plane. It had lights but was a lot louder.”

A spokesman for German Air Traffic Control told the Weser Kurier: “It had normal lights, red and green and an approach light on both sides,” adding that whatever the UFO was, it could be seen through binoculars from the airport’s traffic control tower.

A police helicopter was sent off in pursuit, but was unable to track down the UFO. A Bremen police spokesman told the Local,“We still don’t know what it was, but it was there.” The hunt for the UFO is still on as officers investigate the case on grounds of unauthorized intrusion into controlled air space. Possible explanations include that it was a drone, a balloon-like aircraft or aliens attempting to turn Earth into a breeding colony.

No word on whether Steven Spielberg has purchased the movie rights to this event yet.

@DisclosureProject Or....if UFOs and Flying Saucers don't exist, why is there hundreds and thousands of government documents detailing unexplained cases, worldwide?

@DisclosureProject  - it it can be explained, it is by definition NOT a UFO. Thus, without a cover-up there can be NO UFO's. Therefore - the cultivation of a mature cover-up and conspiracy industry IS FUNDAMENTAL to assuring the growth of the UFO economy! This will create jobs, increase growth, and build sustainable security!!

Agreed. Desperate, sad...but not funny.

@DuncanMcVitie I thought it was pretty funny, lets be real, odds are aliens have never visited Earth. They have no reason to come here, Earth has NOTHING to offer, aliens can access every thing they need within their solar system without visiting an arrogant race that will likely cause its own extinction.

@Blahable —Sadly, this commenting system lacks a "Dislike" button, just for inane comments like yours.

@Blahable 

yes, because left-wing, new-age liberal hippies have never, ever, claimed to be visited by aliens. oh, and this was in germany, where the tea party doesn't exist. nice try, but what' it like to be so overwhelmingly moronic you can't even make a basic argument that doesn't make you sound like you've suffered some sort of brain damage?

@gsprich I have to point out that no one has any idea what the "odds" are...other than the fact of their being billions of planets out there in this galaxy alone, and there is no way of knowing what they need or interests are either. One thing is sure, if they even exist they would be millions of years in advance of us technologically and would have no need to interact with us unless they wished.

@Dragonscoils @gsprich  It wouldn't matter how advanced they'd be, if anything in the case that they'd be more advanced than us it would make us more approachable. We as humans would love to find something as primitive as bacteria, lol.
