|UFO SIGHTED OVER DND TOLL BRIDGE (RIVER YAMUNA), NEW DELHI, INDIA
Much before the above mentioned sighting, in July of 2007 roughly four years after the death of Kalpana Chawla (a NASA astronaut of Indian origin, who died in the crash of Space shuttle Columbia in 2003), there was a UFO siting over Karnal, Kalpana’s hometown in India, on July 8, 2007 between 10 PM and 11.30 PM IST. The UFOs hovered over Karnal for over two hours and then flew over New Delhi. Many people saw the event first hand, and most others saw a live telecast on television.
The way it had turned out is that four years after she had died, a week long remembrance ceremony had been organized from July 1-7, 2007 in Karnal for Kalpana Chawla. July 1 is Kalpana’s birth-date in her official records though she was born on 23rd of March. One day after the celebrations were over, on the night of 8th July the UFOs appeared. Of course, nobody knows if there was any link to her birth or death, but in our minds, in India we all connected the two events for obvious reasons.
Television channels in India which till then had never directly telecast a UFO sighting and therefore was free of any announced governmental restrictions, televised the event live for a stretch of two hours. Till then there were no media restrictions on direct telecast of such sightings in India because such occurrences had perhaps not caught the attention of the media. Hence all news channels showed it till the UFOs vanished from skies. There must have been at least 5-6 unidentified UFOs which appeared as bright lights in the sky.
The next day the news vanished. Nobody ever spoke about it. There was no debunking either. But anyone and everyone who was tuned into any news channel saw it!! Only one clip of Star News’ coverage of this incident appears on Youtube. Somebody somewhere had managed to silence the media on this.
