Police in Scotland were sent to assist one of their own after the rookie officer reported she was being followed by a drone.

And despite her best efforts, which reportedly included a drawn out “pursuit,” she wasn’t able to lose the drone.

So Glasgow-based constable called for backup.

She was told to return to the station where she would meet with a supervisor, according to the Daily Record.

When approached by the senior officer, she was reportedly in the police yard with her hood up trying to hide from the drone. However her supervisor pointed out that it wasn’t a drone, and it was, in fact, the planet Jupiter.

Jupiter can be seen with the naked eye during certain alignments of its orbit and just last winter was part of the ‘Great Conjunction,’ where it aligned with Saturn.

“The story is the talk of the steamie at her station. Nobody can quite believe it. She was very alarmed and spooked that she was being followed by a drone,” a police source told the Daily Record. “Everyone was quite concerned so you can imagine the red face and embarrassment felt when it was pointed out that the bright light following her was a planet millions of miles away.”
