    A highly illuminated, mysterious flying object was spotted in the skies over Chelsea last night -- prompting dozens of calls to 311 about a UFO.

    City officials haven't provided any answers about what the object might have been, though some speculated it was a balloon.  Video of the object shows an oddly shaped object full of lights, flying slowly through the evening sky.   One witness called the spectacle "extraordinary."

    Others were certain they saw a space craft from that was out of this world.  It "stopped everyone in a two block radius," one witness said.
