Questions are increasing about damage to a wind turbine in the UK on Jan. 4, 2009, that reportedly occurred at the same time witnesses reported a large glowing orange unidentified flying object (UFO) nearby.
International mainstream media are now reporting on the unusual case.
Witnesses, who are reported to be reliable according to news accounts, said the object appeared to have "tentacles" and an octopus-like appearance.
The UK newspaper "The Sun" quoted witness John Harrison as saying he saw a "massive ball of light with tentacles going right down to the ground" above the wind turbine farm. "It was huge. With the tentacles it looked just like an octopus," he said.
Other witnesses claim to have seen the same thing, according to news reports.
BLADE TORN OFF
The wind turbine is located near Conisholme, England. The 213-foot-high turbine had one of three 20-meter blades torn off.
The turbine is owned by the company Ecotricity and manufactured by the German company Enercon, which is reportedly examining some of the damaged parts.
Speculation about the cause includes the possibilities mechanical failure or impact from some kind of flying object, man-made or otherwise.
A representative of manufacturer Enercon was quoted in the media as saying he does not think it was a mechanical defect related to the wind turbine's construction.
According to news reports in the UK, unmanned stealth aircraft called "Taranis" are being tested in the region by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD). The black delta-wing craft are being developed to carry bombs, according to UK news reports.
UK press reports say that the MoD does not plan an investigation because there was no evidence of a potential threat in British airspace.
