A town east of London has finally solved the mystery of the floating man.
Residents were confused and concerned by what appeared to be a man floating in the air above their neighborhood. As if that wasn’t nerve-wracking enough, the floating man looked to be holding a gun. One local posted a photo on Facebook, which got the attention of police as well as the Civil Aviation Authority.
Eventually, a woman who lives a few miles away saw the photo and solved the mystery.

She said the balloon broke loose from the house during a storm and took off into the sky.
