A fast moving object was spotted at 30° in the eastern horizon at Eastern Kolkata between 3:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. and was filmed using a handycam. It shape shifted from a sphere to a triangle and then to a straight line. The object emitted a bright light forming a halo and radiated a range of colors.
It was spotted by many people and hundreds gathered along the E.M. Bypass to catch a glimpse of the UFO, triggering a frenzy. The video footage was released on a TV News channel and later shown to Dr. D P Duari, the director of MP Birla Planetarium, Kolkata, who found it to be extremely interesting and strange. It was later approved by Dr D P Duari to be the planet Venus.
