I'm thinking that the 'shiney objects' in the sky are probably
of human origin and are observation crafts from the USA, Russia,
or another country that has that capability. Either that or ET is
interested because Iran is about to go nuclear (and that point
does have merit)
Iran's air force ordered to defend nuclear facilities from `flying objects'
By The Associated Press
December 26, 2004
TEHRAN - Iran's air force has been ordered to shoot down any unknown or suspicious flying objects in Iran's airspace, an air force spokesman said
yesterday, amid state-media reports of sightings of flying objects near Iran's nuclear installations.
Flying-object fever has gripped Iran after dozens of reported sightings in the summer and in recent weeks. State-run media has reported sightings of
unknown objects flying over parts of Iran where nuclear facilities are located.
"Flights of unknown objects in the country's airspace have increased in recent weeks... [they] have been seen over Bushehr and Isfahan provinces,"
the Resalat daily reported yesterday. There are nuclear facilities in both provinces.
The timing of the reported increase in sightings, coming as the United States is urging allies to confront Iran over its nuclear program, has
strengthened Iranian public perceptions that the objects are surveillance or hostile aircrafts monitoring Iran.
The daily Resalat had reported that "shining objects" in the sky were seen near Natanz, where Iran's uranium enrichment plant is located, noting
that one had exploded, causing "panic in the region."
