Shock twist in mystery UFO sighting after white object spotted floating over US town is revealed to be a space tourist | The Sun

A WHITE object that was seen floating over a town has been confirmed to be a space tourist, according to experts.

Dramatic pictures showed what appeared to be an orb hovering over Laramie, Wyoming on July 15.

It fueled social media users to speculate if they were being invaded by aliens.

The Wyoming NASA Space Grant Consortium said residents may have seen a balloon flying at around 60,000 feet.

They said it is currently on a 30-day floater mission, which started in Page, Arizona on either July 9 or 10.

The balloon weighs around 1,100lbs and it is equipped with cameras, research, and tracking devices.
