Aliens Over the Vatican!

Or, you know … not.

Here’s the “story“:

A UFO was caught on tape by the BBC as the world awaited the naming of the new Pope.

The object, caught as the camera showed a view of the Sistine Chapel at night, is circular and glowing a strange red color. The UFO doesn’t move at all, which seems to rule out the possibility it’s a balloon. Even a drone usually makes more movement. Why would there be a drone over the Vatican?

And here’s the video:

There aren’t enough “eh”s in “meh” to capture my thoughts on this one.

    I was in Rome last year, and looking at the Dome of St. Peter’s from our rooftop, we could clearly see…. Bats! Lots of them, circling the Dome and captured in the Vatican’s lights.
    Nothing to see here, folks…. now move along….

    Apparently, a lapsed Catholic, practicing Episcopalian (when he practices any religion).

    So, a stationary light in the night sky counts as a UFO now? Jeeze, the tinfoil-hat crowd is getting desperate!
