Strange lights sparks UFO mystery in Shropshire

It was a straight line of bright lights – and it has become the latest UFO mystery to strike over the skies of Shropshire.


Stephen and Adele Edwards were today asking for help in figuring out whether they might have captured footage of a UFO flying over their home.

The couple, who live in Nobold, Shrewsbury, have been left puzzled after spotting this pattern of lights on footage from their CCTV over the weekend.

Mr Edwards said: "Our CCTV camera in our garden caught an image of what looks some rather strange lights in the sky.

"I used to be in the RAF and at first I thought that the lights may be from flares, but they are not – I have checked with some friends in the RAF who have confirmed that there was no military activity in Shropshire over the bank holiday weekend.

"The lights seem to be at a distance of approximately half a mile from the back of our property in Nobold and at approx 400 feet altitude, although it is difficult to tell from the image.

"I have checked various applications to see if any aircraft were present in the area at the time and none were. I have also asked West Mercia Police if their police helicopter was operating around this time and they have confirmed that it wasn't."

Having exhausted all other options, the couple think this could be some kind of UFO in Shrewsbury. "My wife Adele did hear a strange humming sound at about 11pm on Sunday over the fields at towards Hook-A-Gate and went to look outside.

"She said that the neighbour was also outside and they could both see strange flashes in the sky over the fields.

"So we are now asking is this a UFO? It certainly cannot be explained and is definitely not any natural phenomena or astronomical – meteorites do not get as low as this or look like this."

The Edwards are now looking for help in finding out what the image could be.

Mr Edwards added: "I would like to get to the bottom of this as it is highly unusual and strange."
