Strange Bright Object Photographed Over Leeds UK with Video

Strange Bright Object Photographed Over Leeds UK On Thursday, February 1st, 2007, a video recorded on a camera phone was sent to Russel Callaghan at UFOData Magazine. It also appeared on local BBC TV news programme, Look North.

By a remarkable stroke of fortune, UFOData Magazine researcher and features writer, Sacha Christie saw the object and took a great photograph. It can be found on the UFOData Forum

Enquiries have been made into what this could be, including contacting RAF Fylingdales, and UFOData Magazine will publish the findings when we learn more.

The object is somewhat similar to what was photographed in Wales in 2003. That was initially thought to be a meteor or bolide exploding in the atmosphere and it made the Astronomy Picture of the Day for 1st October, 2003.

That was eventually explained as an aeroplane contrail illuminated by the setting sun. What was seen today, however, does not seem to be the same, as the object was seen to move across the sky.

Hopefully more answers will emerge soon.
