Strange light over Sri Lanka

Between 1959 and 2007, Britain's Defense Intelligence branch has logged "more than 11,000 UFO reports." One of them featured this photo of a strange light in the sky over Sri Lanka. This photo was taken by an RAF officer on vacation with his wife and then put into the U.K.'s National Archive.
