Alien Lights Over Brooklyn Were Not Extraterrestrial, Says FDNY

By

The explosion early Monday morning that lit up the Brooklyn sky was a transformer fire on a barge in Sunset Park, the FDNY told Gothamist, but witnesses have been quick to tweet their suspicions. "I just saw what looked like a UFO light up the sky in Brooklyn," reported one woman, while an amateur photographer/Agent Mulder was incredulous: "Why would there be a big explosion in brooklyn that lights up the whole sky and it not be on the news?!!" And at the same time NASA landed on Mars? They could be having a parallel celebration as we speak.
