UFOs, or solar balloons?

We had one of these solar balloons at work and the string snapped so it drifted away. A couple of days later the local paper had a letter asking if anyone had seen the big black cylinder drifting over the city. The time and date matched for our solar balloon... one inadvertent UFO! And by a strange quirk of fate the letter writer was a friend of mine!

When you told your friend, was the reaction one of "Should've known you would be involved..."?
