NEW YORK — A UFO, with three aliens on it, was spotted over New York’s West Side today!

A mysterious shiny object floating high over Manhattan West Side set off a flurry of reports Wednesday that a UFO was flying over the city.   The reports turned out to be true – confirmed by the Federal government.

Police and the FAA said they began getting flooded with calls starting at 1:30 p.m. from people reporting a silvery object hovering high over Chelsea. Several residents said they not only saw the UFO, but they also saw three aliens in the “pilot seats” of the UFO.

“You can see them clearly.  They were blue.  They had big eyes and they seemed to be smiling,” said Anne Jarmain of Chelsea.  “It was definitely a UFO,” said Dan Lukas of the West Village.  “It wasn’t a plane or a helicopter or a balloon.  We all saw it.  It was a UFO!”

The UFO  wast floating approximately 5,000 feet above 23th St. and Eighth Ave., where dozens of people gathered late in the afternoon to catch a glimpse.  Some residents joked that they saw the UFO suck Republican gubernatorial candidate, Carl Paladino into the base of the ship.”

“It hovered for a while, then it disappeared in a flash.  It was so cool,” said Carlo Torrino of Dyker Heights. ‘

Many residents were scared, thinking that the city was under attack.

Not long after the first sightings, messages began appearing on Twitter linking to a month-old press release announcing the publication of a book by a retired NORAD officer predicting that UFOs would buzz the earth’s major cities on Oct. 13.

The Federal Aviation Administration said it received several calls to its operations center.  After carefully reviewing the data, the FAA would not make a comment, though insiders say that they confirmed that it was in fact a UFO – one that they had been tracking for weeks.

Law enforcement sources did not want to release information to the public, but WWN found out from insider sources that it was a UFO and that President Obama ordered it to be shot down.  It was shot down this evening over the Atlantic Ocean – two hundred miles east of Manhattan.
