UFO Makes Knott's a Real Scary Farm

Disneyland may get the bigger crowds when it comes to earthlings, but Knott's Berry Farm may hold the distinction of being more popular among aliens.

That's the take away from the iPhone photo of a UFO snapped just before 10 p.m. Tuesday by Ryan Boone, who was waiting in line to ride the Xcelerator rollercoaster at the Buena Park theme park.

Sadly, I can't pony up the funds for a wire service photo so you're just going to have to go to KNBC/Channel 4's website for the photographic evidence.

It shows a triangular object hovering in the sky, just over a roller coaster.

"Take me to Camp Snoopy . . ."
"Take me to Camp Snoopy . . ."

To hear the 31-year-old Beverly Hills resident who shot it, the picture lives up to park's October transformation into Knott's Scary Farm.

"This photo is extremely creepy," Boone reportedly said before swearing he did not doctor the shot.

"At first I thought it had to be a glare, but there was nothing in the sky to glare off of," he told the TV station. ". . . I've never been a believer in UFOs until I took this photo and saw it with my own eyes."

KNBC says it forwarded the photo to the FAA, where a spokesman said it will be looked into.

If you believe that, I've got an acre of land in Roswell I'd like to sell you.

Where's Fox Mulder when you need him?
