Hello, Emergency? Yes, I’d Like to Report the Moon

Someone in Wales is about to get in trouble with the local authorities for making an emergency 999 call to investigate a UFO. When the police arrived and were pointed in the direction of the shocking anomaly, they discovered the poor moron was referring to the moon, which had been hovering up there for over 30 minutes.

Here is the transcript of the call from the Telegraph:

Control: “South Wales Police, what’s your emergency?”

Caller: “It’s not really. I just need to inform you that across the mountain there’s a bright stationary object.”

Control: “Right.”

Caller: “If you’ve got a couple of minutes perhaps you could find out what it is? It’s been there at least half an hour and it’s still there.”

Control: “It’s been there for half an hour. Right. Is it actually on the mountain or in the sky?”

Caller: “It’s in the air.”

Control: “I will send someone up there now to check it out.”

Caller: “OK.”

After the police patrol car arrives, the script reveals the exchange between the control room and the police officer sent to the scene.

Control: “Alpha Zulu 20, this object in the sky, did anyone have a look at it?”

Officer: “Yes, it’s the moon. Over.”
