Was Penang visited by aliens on Tuesday?
Could the object in the picture be an Unidentified Flying Object? These are among the questions raised after the object was captured on film by a guest at the Paradise Sandy Beach Resort in Tanjung Bungah on Tuesday.
The Australian tourist was photographing the sunrise around 8am from the balcony of his hotel room when he caught the object on film.
The tourist, who wished to remain anonymous, only realised the presence of the object a day later, when he was checking out.
Hotel public relations officer Virginia Scully said the tourist left a copy of the photograph with the hotel before leaving for Australia.
"He asked if we had seen such sightings from the hotel," Scully said at the hotel yesterday.
