Family see 'return' of UFOs at home

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Laura Brown with the video camera she used to captured the UFO images Laura Brown with the video camera she used to captured the UFO images

They’re back! UFOs spotted buzzing over Bradford have mysteriously re-appeared in the night skies.

Kevin Brown, 57, and his family watched in amazement as a glowing shape changed colour and darted across the sky near their home in Kildare Crescent, Allerton.

He shouted to daughter Laura, 28, who recorded what they believe was a close encounter on her mobile phone while he dashed upstairs to get his camcorder.

The astonishing video he handed to the T&A shows a glowing orb – similar to the one spotted in late autumn last year and on New Year’s Eve.

Mother-of-one Laura, a science and health student at Bradford College, said: “In October, my family woke me up in the early hours of the morning and said they had spotted what looked to be a UFO in the Odsal/Wibsey area and they asked me to capture the footage on my phone. Not believing it, I went back to sleep.

“It was only when I saw footage in the newspaper that I thought it could be a real UFO.

“Then at about 5pm on Wednesday, my father looked out of the window and saw it was back.”

Kevin Brown said: “It was darting about, then it zoomed in then zoomed out again. I don’t know whether it is the exact same one we saw before.

“But it doesn’t look like a star. Stars stay still. This was spinning.”

In September, Richard Ing, 40, of Westminster Avenue, Clayton, said he watched from the balcony of his house as a UFO passed over Bradford city centre, Clayton and off towards Denholme. In another sighting just after midnight on New Year’s Eve, Clare Harris, 30, and four friends spotted a flickering ball moving slowly across the sky above Low Moor.

Asked why he thought the aliens had returned following the latest sighting on Wednesday night, Mr Brown said: “They are probably just observing us to learn about our culture.”

Laura added: “I do believe there is more than just us here. Just as long as they leave me alone, I’m alright.”

A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police said the force had received no other reports of UFO sightings in the North Bradford division on Wednesday night.

There's a coincidence.

When I see Bradford I also change colour and leave at high speed.

It's a small galaxy, isn't it?

Spotted by a science student on New Years Eve. Observing the residents of Bradford, don't make me laugh! It's 'the new firework' a Chinese Flying Lantern!

There really isn't much detail to the video shown, and as there are no other reports of a UFO to West Yorkshire police, it's highly probable this is a show for attention. There are 4 possibilities. 1) High altitude weather balloon refracting light; 2) Venus, it's the very bright star above the sunset; 3) Sirius, brightest star chnages colour in the atmosphere but is mainly light blue (highly improbable at dusk); 4) Satelite. Without sufficient evidence how can we tell what it might be?

It's plainly obvious that anyone at the T&A doesn't read anything on the their own forums.
Last time this kind of story got wheeled out, around New Years Eve, there were dozens of explanations about the "UFOs" being Chinese lanterns. Around 20 seconds of hard-nosed investigative Googling by our intrepid reporter would have added detail to this story.
Maybe they really are aliens and are visiting Bradford because they can't understand why there is such a big hole in the ground in the city centre?
Maybe it's another world trying to find out how to avoid paying for car insurance?
Or maybe this Sunday Sport journalism is being palmed off on us again to distract us from the real issues that should be being investigated in this city?
"They are probably just observing us to learn about our culture" ............. answers on the back of a postcard.
