Residents in the southwest of England reported seeing UFOs in separate areas on Valentine’s Day. The strange ships were said to look like flying golf balls, with bright lights. There are no images or videos of the supposed spaceships, but more than one claim was made of sightings in Somerset towns at around 6.30PM on February 14.
Kevin Midwood, who lives in Hillcommon, Taunton, is quoted by the Somerset County Gazette as saying: “I wonder if anybody else saw the big white glowing ball shape object that went over Taunton last night? Possible UFO sighting?
“I live in Hillcommon and my son lives in Wellington, he spotted it too.
“It seemed to come over from Taunton at great speed then it just disappeared.”
James Vasey, Mr Midwood’s son, said: “I was walking from my home in Wellington and a bright yellow object shot across the sky at rapid speed.
“It wasn’t a meteorite or shooting star as it was flying too low and whatever it was disappeared.”
Conspiracy theorists and alien hunters were quick to jump on the alleged sightings, and urged authorities to investigate the incident further.
Prominent UFO enthusiast Scott C Waring was quick to give his two cents after the sightings emerged, saying that this is not the first time UFOs like these have been spotted in England.
He wrote on his blog UFO Sightings Daily: “There is no video or photos of this sighting. However, I have heard of such UFOs over England, back in 2014 an eyewitness recorded over Cambridge, England of several glowing yellow white orbs during the day.
“Even without the photos, this is a serious UFO case that needs further investigation.“
