Someone get the Tin Foil Hat Society on the phone, because there may have been a UFO right here in Central New York.

Several people have hopped into the comment section on a post in the People Places and Opinions of Rome NY Facebook group, saying they all saw a similar object in the sky.

The original commenter asked the question :

Did anyone else see the VERY shiny metallic object in the sky yesterday? We saw very briefly it disappeared quick and left a little like a white line in the sky and as this was when we were coming from Utica as we get closer to Rome so another white line in the sky. After I got home I saw another one even further to the south. Don’t know what it was but our suspicion was it could possibly be possibly have been us UFO I don’t have anybody else saw it let me know.

The original poster had many people comment back saying they saw a similar shiny object in the sky:

"We saw them. But I just assumed they were airplanes with sun shining on them."

"Intelligent life from other planets watching, pointing and laughing at us! "

"Drones?"

"Saw a bunch of streaks in the sky around 4:30 yesterday. I was wondering what they were."

"It's been going on for a while now, definitely suspicious, shiny objects and planes leaving trails of smoke or whatever, usually starts near dusk. I'm guessing so the trails blend into the night sky‍♀️ I'm sure there's "a logical explanation" maybe it's weather balloons deflating or something."

"Our contractor saw something very fast / shiny, before the Apache copters started circling around, it was last Friday morning. Maybe there was/is some testing going on."

No. It's aliens. Definitely aliens. When will we start hearing more background on UFOs and sightings?
