MOSCOW –  Last night there were mysterious floating red lights over Moscow.

For over two hours last night, there were a series of unidentified floating, flickering lights.   At first, local citizens thought it was a fireworks display, but they soon realized that it wasn’t.  There were many calls to Moscow authorities, with citizens worried about the lights.

The Russian government immediately dismissed them as “nothing,” but Moscow citizens are convinced that there were multiple UFOs over the city last night.

“We look up in the sky and there they were.  I saw about five of them.  They came from nowhere and then… they disappeared.  There is no explanation I can think of.  It must be UFO,” said Ivan Skolov.

Vladamir Putin learned of the UFOs and immediately dismissed them.  “There is no such thing as UFO.  And if there were they better not come to Russia.  I will kick their asses.  They can go to America, where people are weak.  But aliens will not harm Russia.  Not while I am here.”

Last month, there was a red UFO over New York.  Some speculate that it may be the same UFO, but Dr. Mazlan Othman of the United Nations commission on extraterrestrials said that he believes the UFOs over Moscow are not related to the ones seen over New York.

“We have fairly strong evidence that the beginning of an alien invasion is occurring in the United States.  The floating lights over Moscow last night are clearly spaceships from another planet, but we think they are aliens on a separate mission.”

Asked whether she thought there could be two separate alien invasions underway, Ms. Othman said, “it’s naive for us to assume that all aliens are working in consort.  There are many different aliens from different planets and they all have different objectives.  Our job on the commission is to determine which aliens are friendly and which ones are coming to harm the citizens of earth.”

Meanwhile, Moscow citizens are nervous about the unidentified red lights.  “We don’t normally see UFOs, we think that is something only for people in the Southern U.S.  We are concerned and upset that our government seems to be covering up,” said Katia Volmod of Moscow.

The reports of UFOs have increased 259% so far this year – over last year.  Could this really be the beginning of an alien invasion?
