A MAN from Butleigh had a close encounter last week when he saw something he couldn't explain hovering in the skies near his house.

The man, who has asked not to be named, was at home on October 31 when he spotted something unusual in the sky.

​ "It was about 5 pm because I had just got in from work," he said. "I was in my bedroom and I just glanced out of the window and I could see this light, perhaps about 200 feet above the ground, not far from the solar farm."

The man originally thought it was a helicopter.

"But then I realised it didn't have any flashing lights, and it was completely silent," he said.

He grabbed a pair of binoculars for a better look, moving downstairs and out into his back garden.

"Then I saw another one from out of nowhere," he said. "Perhaps about 30ft away from the first one." He said the objects just 'hung' in the sky.

"My next door neighbour was outside, and we both watched them for a little while," he said.

"Neither of us could believe what we were seeing."

He snapped a few pictures with his smart phone.

"They started to drift towards us after that," he said. "Then as the light started to fade, the first one, then the second one just vanished. And I know it sounds silly, but about half a mile from where they vanished, in the clouds, we saw all this white flashes of light, all over the sky."

He said he wasn't scared by the experience, and it was the first time he'd seen something he couldn't explain. "My neighbour and I just looked at each other," he said. "Neither of us had ever seen anything like it."
