The Time a British Man Mistook Daylight Saving Time for an Alien Abduction

I probably have a similar batch of confidential sketches circa 1986-87:

UK Ministry of Defense

The United Kingdom has released a few dozen formerly confidential UFO files, and along with some awesome sketches, like the one above of a pink crop-circle-making spaceship with ankh-shaped windows, they also contain some great UFO sighting fails. For example, in 1998 a London man spotted a UFO in the sky above his garden in the middle of the night (i.e., was wasted), then went to bed, and upon waking up realized that he had gained “a whole hour” of time. ”I am now beginning to wonder if I was abducted,” he told the Ministry of Defense. But no. It was daylight saving time.
