Radar glitch delays plane flights in Boston.

Apparently this has been going on since yesterday.


Radar was showing “false targets” — blips that air traffic controllers knew were not planes in flight, said FAA spokeswoman Arlene Murray.

This is leading to delays in average of two hours on flights today; yesterday they were having four hour delays.

Flights are now being monitored by a long-range backup radar system in Nashua, N.H.

Flocks of geese could cause the problem but a spokeswoman stated that the problem was ongoing.

Wonder if there have been any UFO sightings in the Boston area?

Or geese wearing tin foil hats??

Interesting. Hopefully some interesting UFO reports will be coming from New England soon.

I live 30 miles north of Boston and there's been nothing out of the ordinary in the skies of late. From time to time I've seen a couple of fighters screaming overhead but thats about it. I thought I heard about a month ago of there being a lot of activity on the sun. Either abnormally large solar flares or lots of sunspot activity. That would muck up communications and radar I'd imagine.
I am definitely a sky watcher, but honestly I haven't seen anything strange in the past 48 hrs.
I also need to mention that its been raining almost nonstop for the last 4 or 5 days so its tough to see much of anything in the skies here
