Full Description & Details
The year of 2002 had a very hot summer and low rainfall. In the month of july people of district lakhimpur, sitapur and nearby villages reported the sightings of a lightning ball which changed colours frequently and harms people by burning the skin. With increased number of sightings day by day the news spread like wildfire and people were too much scared about this object. People reported the ball goes away when loud sound or water was thrown on that. The sightings of the object were only at night time and some at the evening time. The fear of this object as this much that people stopped sleeping at night and one or two members of the family patrolled at night time. The sightings and victims were increasing every day and the police officials and the government didn't had an answer. A video of the same was captured b the district magistrate. People even protested in front of the police stations near sitapur to capture the object causing harm to the people. Many teams were sent to identify the object like one from IIT KANPUR to get details of the object but nothing was told to the public and the secracy still remained. The doctors recognized the burnt skin of the victims as radiation burn. The UFO or lighting ball was sighted by people for a whole month and there were thousands of people who saw this thing. But the mystery still remains there that what was it- UFO or Unidentified Creature or Man made drone. The people gave the object a name too -'Muhnuchwa' meaning face burner. The news was published in hundreds of newspaper.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
