In the month of November 2022, something crashed to the ground in the northern Polish town of Bydgoszcz. Some said it was a UFO and others a Russian missile on social media.
Local media speculated it was a Russian surface-to-air missile due to its Cyrillic markings.
A missile from a Ukrainian air defense system had accidentally strayed into Polish territory, however this was later debunked.
Despite this, some internet users persisted in spreading rumors about the tragedy, with some even claiming the Polish government was hiding the remains of a crashed alien spaceship. However, the potential danger posed by the missile is likely the reason for the reports of a large military presence and temporary restrictions around the site.
Some people’s interest has been piqued by the occurrence, but they should not leap to any conclusions before gathering all the facts. To protect public safety, the Polish government will likely keep digging into the details of this occurrence.
