Exclusive: Mystery surrounds
'UFO sighting' in skies above Brean
footage of a cylinder-shaped object floating in the skies above
Brean, near Burnham-On-Sea, has raised speculation that it could
have been a UFO.
object, pictured, was seen travelling over Brean whilst shocked
onlookers at a caravan park watched on.
are already a range of theories on what the object might have
been, with some believing it was a kite or weather balloon, while
users on video sharing website YouTube claim the object was a
"high altitude observation balloon payload"or a "metallic
shape, higher than a plane."
expert Malcolm Robinson said the object was "totally consistent"
with other sightings. Mr
Robinson, who runs UFO group Strange Phenomena Investigations,
said: "This video of a UFO is clearly very exciting."
UFOs are commonly thought to be spherical in shape, we receive
dozens of calls from people who have spotted similar cylinder-shaped
objects. There is, of course, an argument that this could be a
weather balloon or some other common object."
my research has shown that it is totally consistent with other
UFO sightings, none of which have been hoaxes or naturally-occurring
two minutes of video footage of the object can be viewed
online here. It
was shot last July at the height of the tourist season - and it's
not the first time there has been mystery over unexplained objects
in the skies near Burnham.
Coastguards and rescue hovercrafts were
called out last June to search Somerset's coastline after
sightings of a parachute and canister falling from the sky, which
were never found.
