23 UFOs spotted in Greater Manchester every year...
MANCHESTER is Britain’s UFO capital, with flying saucers spotted above the city every fortnight. Sightings over the city in the past year include mystery craft, five metallic objects in a triangle formation and a “red green ball flying at great speed.”
According to the Mutual UFO Network (Mufon) there are 23 UFOs spotted in Greater Manchester every year.
Footage taken by a witness in Tameside last year showed an “unusual” spacecraft streaming through the air.
The witness said: “The object made very rapid movements and went at speeds no other aircraft can go.” The data released by Mufon, a US company dedicated to reporting UFO sightings, follows another viewing in nearby Stockport in March last year.
A witness said: “I noticed a strange light that looked like a cylinder. After maybe 30 seconds it vanished at such speed I couldn’t tell which direction it went in.”
Earlier this month a stunned motorist spoke out after seeing a mysterious black object in the sky above Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester.
Taxi driver Paul Douglas filmed a UFO floating near Salford Quays in July last year. Here is a remarkable video from Manchester in 2013 (below).
