fiberglass flying saucer
This flying saucer showed up in front of Antwerp's Central Station one morning in mid October 2007. An Internet search revealed that several people had seen and filmed a strange blue light over the city earlier that same month. However, closer inspection revealed a rather clumsily build craft resting on wooden beams, while the photographic evidence was obviously computer generated. A Saturn-shaped logo on the hull of the "craft" confirmed that this was neither a true UFO, nor a work of modern art: the saucer turned out to be part of a publicity stunt for a German electronics chain store which was to open its doors on October 25th in a renovated prestigious building on Antwerp's busiest shopping street.
