While some residents of Tampa, Floriduh were fortunate enough to see a sun halo in the sky — a phenomenon in which a circle appears to surround the sun after light from the sun is refracted by ice crystals associated with thin, high-level clouds, at least one resident of town thought she was seeing something decidedly more sinister.
According to this story, the woman called police from a Tampa bus station.
“This has never happened before in Tampa, Fla. Please go outside and look up in the sky and look at this weird object,” she pleads with the dispatcher. “It’s a big dark circle and it’s all the way around and it has never been in the United States of America. Never, ever.”
The woman kept police on the phone for more than two minutes while she asked to police the investigate and pleaded with them to contact the media.
