SOMERVILLE -- Somerville police were flooded with phone calls this morning after residents reported seeing a large tube-like object fluttering through the sky.
Police said they were swamped with phone calls after a flurry of callers reported to radio station NJ 101.5 that a UFO was flying above the area. Residents then began calling the Somerville Police Department to report the object.
“I first noticed when all our mechanics started looking up at the sky,” said Terry Weil, a sales associate at Honda Autosport in Bridgewater. “It looked like a big black strip fluttering in the air. Maybe a cylinder.”
Somerville Police Lt. Donna Young said authorities were not sure what the object was, but said it caused no problems other than tying up police phone lines shortly before noon.
Lol, that's not a bad idea. It would be fun, and would help a lot of people avoid embarrassing themselves.

So it's a balloon, thanks Violater1. Maybe all the solar baloon manufacturers should print 'this is not a ufo' in large flourescent letters on their balloons in the future. It would save us alot of trouble
