A resident of Plymouth spotted a light in the sky moving over the city, which he believes is evidence of aliens. The witness grabbed his camera phone and began recording the strange light, which he said had been present all day.
According to the person who filmed the strange lights, there were planes flying near the object earlier in the day, although there is no evidence to support the claim.
After being confused by the sighting, the person submitted a report to the UFO investigation network MUFON.
An eyewitness report said: “I was walking up a hill to my local shop and normally see a bright star on my way up the hill.
“I looked up and noticed something moving from a right to left motion in one speed on a straight line, recorded for a few seconds then walked 60 meters down the road and recorded the same UFO on the same line.
“So I recorded it again, it had military planes flying around earlier in the day but it was so quiet when I recorded it.”
Alien researchers were quick to pick up on the sighting, and claimed it is genuine evidence of an extraterrestrial visit.
Prominent alien hunter Scott C Waring wrote on his blog UFO Sightings Daily: “This glowing white UFO was caught over Plymouth, England yesterday.
“The UFO was seen flashing over the city and moving about. You can clearly see in the video that the UFO has no plane or helicopter lights, so it is not an aircraft.

There are more than 2,600 satellites orbiting Earth, with even more space junk, such as defunct rockets, caught in Earth’s gravitational pull.
Astronomers have cursed the ever increasing amount of satellites in orbit, claiming it is ruining their view of the cosmos.
Last year, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) said in a statement: “The scientific concerns are twofold.
“Firstly, the surfaces of these satellites are often made of highly reflective metal, and reflections from the Sun in the hours after sunset and before sunrise make them appear as slow-moving dots in the night sky.
“Although most of these reflections may be so faint that they are hard to pick out with the naked eye, they can be detrimental to the sensitive capabilities of large ground-based astronomical telescopes, including the extreme wide-angle survey telescopes currently under construction.
“Secondly, despite notable efforts to avoid interfering with radio astronomy frequencies, aggregate radio signals emitted from the satellite constellations can still threaten astronomical observations at radio wavelengths.
“Recent advances in radio astronomy, such as producing the first image of a black hole or understanding more about the formation of planetary systems, were only possible through concerted efforts in safeguarding the radio sky from interference.”
