If you’re Malaysian, rejoice! We haven’t escaped the notice of suspected extraterrestials. We’ll let you decide if the following is a precursor to a full-scale invasion or a routine sampling of our country’s famously varied food.
The serene atmosphere at a beach resort near the city of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah was quickly broken when a UFO allegedly appeared in the sky without warning on Saturday evening, according to Harian Metro, a Malaysian paper.
One witness, 27-year old Jemas Dungil, reported seeing a round, blue object floating in the air that turned green seconds later.
The appearance of the UFO (unidentified flying object) was reportedly witnessed by several Tuaran Beach Resort staff members and guests. They claimed that the object emitted blue and green light, floated in the air for a minute, and then vanished in a blink of an eye.
While some witnesses claimed to have successfully captured images of the object with their handphones, others asserted that their mobile phones mysteriously “went dead” when they attempted to do so.
Harian Metro noted that Malaysia’s first recorded UFO sighting took place in the 1950s. A man allegedly saw a flying saucer in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
The last UFO sighting apparently happened in 1999 at Tanjung Sepat, Kuala Langat.
