2020 went out with a weird vibe in Hawaii.
Last week, on Dec. 29 at roughly 8:30 p.m, eyewitnesses on the Hawaiian island of Oahu spotted a UFO in the night sky, prompting several 911 calls, Travel + Leisure recently reported.
The UFO had a glowing blue color and an oblong shape, witnesses said. As reported by Hawaii News Now, the UFO, which was caught on video, was described by one onlooker as “larger than a telephone pole.” It sailed across the sky for several miles before crashing into the ocean, witnesses said.
Honolulu police reported the UFO sightings to the Federal Aviation Administration.
“Law enforcement contacted the Federal Aviation Administration the night of Tuesday, Dec. 29, about a witness report of a possible plane down in that area,” FAA spokesperson Ian Gregor told USA TODAY. “We followed up on the report but had no aircraft disappear off radars, and we had no reports of overdue or missing aircraft,” he said.
The sighting was unlikely to be an extraterrestrial, as is the case with most UFOs, Travel + Leisure said.
Some internet sleuths said that the floating blue object bears resemblance to an LED kite, as seen in this video by fact-checking Twitter account UFO of Interest.
Overall, it was just another strange incident to wrap up a strange year.
