CHENNAI: It was a scary evening on Wednesday for most of the sky gazers in the city as they could spot unidentified objects (UFOs) moving in the sky entailing smoke.

Four objects were seen in the sky. Unconvinced that they were satellites, some were apprehensive that this was an indication of the world coming to its end. “There has been a talk that the world is going to end soon. But seems to be that is going to happen today. I could see four stars in the sky moving fast to the other direction. This is one of the signs that world is going to perish,” said a rattled security guard of an apartment here.

Most of the people who were aware of the launch were cool, but those who had no knowledge about it were caught in amusement and fear. “I was aware that, it was a 50th rocket launch by ISRO, but a lot of people in Besant Nagar beach were in awe of the unidentified objects moving in the sky with smoke,” said Kannan Balachandran, who was in the area and secretary of T Nagar Residents’ Welfare Association. This added to the fear of Chennaiites who have been hearing rumours every day that the world is going to end before this month end after the deluge. “As we witnessed unusual floods, people are rattled to see any unusual things, and this clear visibility of the satellites for the first time in city surely added to that fear,” said Kannan.
