Man's plea as UFO is spotted over Shipley

The UFO spotted over Shipley by Emil Ziemczonek

A close-up of the object

First published in News

Attention Shipley... you are not alone. Could this photograph be evidence that alien intelligences from the far reaches of space have been visiting the Bradford district?

Emil Ziemczonek thinks it just might be. He snapped this shot of the skyline of the town on Sunday morning and when he looked at it later was shocked to see the distinctive saucer-shaped object above Shipley, to the left of the photograph.

Emil, 24, who works at the Denso Marston manufacturing plant, was travelling from Wrose back home to Rosebery Avenue in Shipley when he decided to take some pictures on his phone of the surrounding landscape.

He said: “I had a friend coming to visit from London and I wanted to show him the beautiful views. It was only when I got home and looked through the pictures that I saw the shape.

“I immediately thought that it looked like some sort of spaceship. I think it must have come from Space because it looks so very strange.”

He added that he hadn’t noticed anything in the sky as he snapped the pictures, at just after 10am on Sunday, because “it must have been flying very quickly”.

According to the website www.uforth.com, which documents various UFO sightings and sorts them into different categories and shapes, the mystery object photographed by Emil could fall into one of the most common categories of alleged alien spacecraft.

The site shows pictures similar to the one taken by Emil and says: “Of all known craft, the domed disc is perhaps the most instantly recognizable, and has been portrayed countless times in the media, but in reality the shiny silver disc so often represented is but one of its many variants.

Emil said: “It definitely wasn’t a cloud. It’s mystery. It looks very crazy. I’ve shown it to a lot of people and they are as puzzled as I am.”

* Did you spot anything mysterious in the sky over Shipley on Sunday morning? Do you have any idea what the enigmatic shape in Emil’s photograph could be? Comment on the story on our website or e-mail david.barnett@telegraphandargus. co.uk

If you look at the zoomed-in picture you can see a different background around the 'object', including something just below it. It's a bad photoshop job.

He's parked at a bus stop.

That is a contravention code 47 and carries a fine. Come on Bradford Council. Photographic evidence and your traffic enforcement officers are slacking. I won't be happy until I see a news story 'Man who takes a photo of bird poo on his windscreen gets a parking ticket'.

Looking at the 'spaceship' it appears to mimic the shape of the pocket on the tax disc holder lower down in the picture. This is highlighted by the sunshine so would it not be possible for this to have reflected into the lens of the camera??

That place where he has parked if probably the most dangerous place to stop on the whole of Carr Lane as if anyone was wanting to turn left behind him they wouldnt be able to swing it around.

That aside its a shocking photoshop anyway

Probably a "lenticular coud". These are often dome-shaped and typically form above hills and moors - regularly seen over Baildon Moor where they appear to hover in the same spot for a while. No mystery....

I thought it might just have been an out-of-focus bird... but on second thoughts I'm inclined to agree with Tar Biter: it's something on the windscreen, probably a water drop.
That's more likely than a spaceship from another world.

To me it's a blurred picture of a Jackdaw flying sideways across his view. The blown up picture suggests a beak at one end and tail feathers at the other.

He's a lying idiot. You wouldn't even need Photoshop to make a picture of that quality. It's probably been done with Microsoft Paint. Just right click on it and then paste it into Paint then zoom in. If you can't spot the join and the difference in pixelation then you need to visit Specsavers.
