Either there is a civil strife in heavens, or else the world too saucy with the gods incenses them to send destruction…

A crowd of 100 stunned stargazers brought a town centre to a standstill when five mysterious UFOs were spotted hovering in the sky.

Drinkers spilled out of pubs, motorists stopped to gawp and camera phones were aimed upwards as the five orbs, in a seeming formation, hovered above Stratford-Upon-Avon for half an hour.

The unidentified flying objects lit up the otherwise clear night sky above Shakespeare’s birthplace in Warwickshire on Saturday…

Aviation experts are baffled. Full story here.

(Thanks for the tip, Matt. Thanks for the headline, William.)

I like the happy typo in the photo caption: "Crows gathered to gawp at the strange lights that hovered silently over Stratford for 30 minutes."

I think it is a good sign that they have good taste in literature.

Shit, I saw this kind of stuff all the time when I was living in New Mexico. I never made a big deal of it.

Yes, we're a popular tourist attraction in the cosmos. Everyone wants to gawk at the primitive naked apes.

Maybe the aliens are concerned that their communications portal to humans (the Weekly World News) is closing, so they're going direct (so to speak).

Maybe they're picking up their copy of Deathly Hallows? No space spoilers.

For interested parties check out "The Phoenix Lights" by Lynne Ketei. She is a physician who saw these lights outside of Phoenix and did a little investigating. Spooky.
