austriantimes.at - Police are investigating claims an alien sprayed on a German man's sun lounger while being chased by German fighter planes.
Police were called in after Heinz Langer who has a house at Hagenburg on the Steinhuder Sea in Lower Saxony complained that his garden furniture including a table and sun lounger had been covered in black, yellow and violet flecks that had fallen from the sky.
Police spokesman Axel Bergmann who interviewed the house owner said: "He noticed military aircraft in the area at the time and a short while later this liquid landed in his garden. He believed there was a connection but the military have assured us the liquid was not from their planes."
Police confirmed that not just the garden furniture but other areas of the garden of the property which is alongside the largest inland lake in north-west Germany had been covered with the mysterious, acidic substance.
Chief Inspector Dieter Kappmeier from the local police in Stadthagen confirmed: "There were military planes in the area at the time and we believe there was a connection with the appearance of this so far unidentified acidic substance.
"However we have been in touch with the German air force and been able to rule out any connection with the military.
"We have also been in touch with civil aviation authorities in Frankfurt and they have also ruled out that there were any flights in the area at the time.
"The air force have also investigated and taken samples of the substance and absolutely ruled out that it could have come from any aircraft. They are as puzzled as we are as to what the substance that clearly came from the sky could be. What they are sure of is that it did not come from any military or civil aircraft."
