Lights Over Tesco Car Park

All of this is true...

Basically: Robert reported lights over the Tesco car park. Then he told us an alien was coming to stay in his spare room. With the help of some historical abduction stories, a latex alien mask, and a bucket of flying saucers, we're working out whether to believe him. Maybe this is a good place to believe him? 

Maybe you can help?
