UFO Blackout

So, the power went out for a little while in a town called Chorley in northwest England. Seems simple enough, but maybe that's just what the aliens want you to believe. John Szwarc says he and his wife were driving near the local power station just before the blackout and saw a large cross-shaped UFO and an accompanying glowing orb hovering in the sky. The power company says the blackout was the result of a faulty cable, but Szwarc isn't buying that perfectly "reasonable" story for a second. The aliens want us fumbling around in the dark, apparently. "I am aware that electrical power cuts have been associated with UFO activity in the past," he said. The reporter didn't press him on what other baseless falsehoods he's aware of, but that's really beside the point. The moral of this story is that you'd better keep a crank-operated ion cannon on your roof, because there's no way you're going to shoot down the oncoming spaceship hordes if you have to plug in.
