NBA Star's UFO Sighting ... EXPLAINED

12/14/2010 7:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

San Antonio Spurs star Manu Ginobili can rest easy tonight -- because TMZ has uncovered the truth behind the UFOs he spotted over L.A. earlier this month ... and turns out, Red Bull is to blame!!!


A rep for the company tells TMZ ... a team of Red Bull Air Force skydivers took the plunge over Santa Monica at around 5:00 PM on December 1 -- the exact time and day Manu was caught on tape
watching glowing objects descend from the sky.

As for the glowing? We're told the skydivers were carrying powerful flares during their descent.

Case finally closed ... take that, Scully and Mulder.

Not much UFOs on TMZ since Balloon Boy, boy am I glad this is not a balloon. Flaming para shoots is a good one, keep it up with the flaming excuses for technology lapses.
