The Sun: Hubble UFO not alien

Say what you will about the journalistic integrity of Rupert Murdoch's The Sun, but it's always a good read and woo boy, do they love their UFO stories (so much so, in fact, that they'll be reporting sightings to pick up from the Ministry of Defence's decision to terminate its 60-year-old UFO hotline)

This latest article draws readers in with promises of a UFO caught by the Hubble telescope last month - and technically (just barely technically), the object in question is a UFO - and delivers on an interesting, well-reported story about a body with a comet-like tail most likely the result of a 9.3 thousand miles-per-hour asteroid collision.

So no little green men this time, but it's still a cool shot from the Hubble. Read the entire story here.
