A bizarre event disrupted flights yesterday afternoon at the Imphal International Airport, reports our own roving Fortean journalist. According to eyewitnesses, a glowing spherical object seemed to materialize in the skies around 2 PM, bringing airport operations to a standstill.
Passengers aboard the affected Indigo flight recalled their shock when informed that their plane was not taking off due to an “unidentified object” visible through the windows hovering motionless nearby. The spectacle soon had staff and grounded travelers congregating to catch a glimpse, but airport authorities seemed at a loss to explain the phenomenon.
After around two hours, the anomalous orb is said to have rapidly shot upwards and faded out of view just as mysteriously as it had arrived. With no apparent clues as to its nature or origin despite the multiple sightings, speculation has run rampant, with theories ranging from secret military prototypes to alien spacecraft.
