Prosecutor plans press conference on UFO hoax claims
Morris County Prosecutor Robert A. Bianchi will conduct a press conference this evening to discuss the claims by a pair of Whippany Park HS alumni that they staged a UFO hoax involving road flares and balloons earlier this year.
Bianchi will meet with reporters at 7:30 p.m. today.(Current time as of this post is 6:21pm ET.)
Earlier this week, the two men posted videos online that demonstrated how they used flares and balloons, launching them to create the illusion of red-lighted UFOs hovering over Morris County five times in January and February.
The mysterious lights made headlines across the U.S.
Authorities have said the flares and balloons could have interfered with air traffic in the region, including Newark Liberty International Airport flight patterns, and also posed a fire hazard as they floated over homes in the Morristown area.
Check back tonight for updates from the Morris County Prosecutor's press conference.
