TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - It was tiny, it was bright blue, it was way high up, and it spent part of Tuesday afternoon hovering over the skies of Tucson. What was it?

Who knows?

Around 1:00 PM two KGUN9 News employees noticed a tiny but brilliant blue dot high in the sky, nearly straight up over east Tucson. It was nearly stationary, and had the shape and brightness of a star -- but the sun was shining brightly. Couldn't be that.

KGUN9 photojournalist Jim Pfalzer set up a camera and tripod, and caught the object on video. Even at full zoom, the shape of the object was not apparent. But the object could be seen through the viewfinder to be drifting slowly toward the east.

As it drifted, its intensity changed slowly, suggesting a small irregularly shaped object tumbling or twirling.

By 1:50 PM, it was gone.

Was it a UFO? By definition, yes. It was an object. It was flying. And it certainly was unidentified. Probably a balloon of some sort, right?

Of course.

Sometime after the object appeared, KGUN9's Internet access went down for a few minutes -- long enough to delay the posting of this story until after the object had disappeared.

Just coincidence, no doubt. We're sure of it.
