Fox News Gets In On UFO & End Of The World Action

FoxNews.com is getting in on some ‘end of times’ hype with a recent article titled
‘UFOs’ spotted over San Francisco, Brooklyn.

The Mayan apocalypse believed by some to be taking place on Dec. 21, 2012, has apparently been preceded by multiple sightings of UFOs hovering over major U.S. cities. In the past week, San Francisco and Brooklyn were both treated to the sight of mysterious illuminated objects floating in the sky.

On Dec. 3, in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, an amateur video captured a slow-moving parade of lights overhead. The trio of lights appeared to move in a coordinated fashion, slowing down and then moving again in roughly the same direction and at the same speed.

A similarly choreographed ballet of lights, reported by some as a UFO sighting, danced over the Mission district of San Francisco in the wee hours of Dec. 9. As in the Brooklyn sighting, the lights seemed to hover calmly above the city, then slowly drift away in unison, as seen in this amateur video. [See UFO Video]

Originally left as a comment.

In the spring of 2012 me and my boyfriend were driving down a lifeless road, It was around 3 or 4 in the morning. We were coming up to a small strip of antique shop and gas stations along side of the road. Well I glanced forward and turned away, when I quickly relized what I had just seen and looked back it was gone, the same thing with my boyfriend. It was HUGE and it wasn’t like a light it was like a glow and it was orange. And it was just hovering right above all the little shop.

Oh and this was in Muskegon, Michigan by the way.
