Family see 'return' of UFOs at home
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.
