UFO Controversy Cleared


(BLACKFOOT) – When Blackfoot residents reported what they believed were UFOs Saturday night, it left plenty of people in the community scratching their heads.

What was originally thought to be a visit from extra-terrestrials turned out to be sky lanterns.

The lights led to at least three calls to the National UFO Reporting Center.

The low-flying balloon-shaped lights were launched from a wedding reception at a venue near the city center.

Following a community survey conducted by Local News 8, Bryan Shigihara of Shelley stepped forward with video evidence linking the lights to the wedding lanterns.
