UFO sightings in Bahrain

This is the photo of the sighting taken by a Sri Lankan couple in Bahrain, and which has excited my brother to the point where he now claims this is the most exciting event to have ever hit Bahrain. Here is an excerpt from the GDN article which first reported the sighting:

The GDN carried a picture on its front page yesterday taken by a Sri Lankan couple, which they claimed showed a UFO that flew over them as they were driving along the Sitra Causeway. Engineer Omerdeen Hamad Idrees, aged 35, said he his wife, Shiyara, took the picture when they were on their way to Sitra Mall with their four-year-old son Imran at around 9pm. Mr Idrees, who works for Products for Projects, said the object moved very slowly in the sky and made circular movements over Tubli Bay before passing over his car.

However, Bahrain University applied physics professor Dr Waheeb Alnaser claimed there was probably a rational explanation.

He admitted that Mr Idrees and his wife could have seen a strange phenomenon, but doubted that it was a flying saucer.

“What they saw, and I am only guessing, is some reflection on the horizon – possibly from satellite panels,” the Bahrain Astronomical Society vice-chairman told the GDN.

Like I said when the search for Ninki-Nanka first got underway, I would prefer to believe with certitude that there are forces and/or beings far greater than us humans rather than live my life with the depressing realization that we are but mere mortals alone in this universe, with nowhere to go and nothing to do but simply wait for our impending doom.

  1. The possibility of life beyond our solar system would go a long way in explaining George W. Bush…

    Alas, even if he were proven to be an alien we would still have to search for “intelligent” life existing elsewhere.
