UFO spotters across Gloucester alerted after unidentified object plummets to Earth from space

Mystery objects have been seen high in the sky above Gloucester to put UFO spotters in the area on high alert.

Hucclecote mum Sarah-Jane Stanley was out walking in Churchdown on Sunday evening when she caught sight of a mysterious object plummeting towards earth.

Sarah quickly grabbed her camera to record the moment.

She said: “I didn’t think anything of it and took the photo as a general sunset picture. Then my 11-year-old daughter and I realised it was moving.

“I looked through my camera lens on full zoom and it appeared to have something at the tip of it and it was clearly visible on a downward descent. The object is spinning and glowing.

“I took around 15 clear photos in all, with some exactly a minute apart, and you can see how fast it is travelling by the distance it falls on each picture.

“On one of the pictures, there appear to be two tails coming from whatever it is. Crazy although it sounds, it seems to be shaped like a claw and there is something glowing on it.

“I sent the larger photos to the Met Office as I wondered if it was something weather related. They came back to me and said their forecasters say it is not a weather phenomenon and looks like something entering the Earth’s atmosphere.

“They suggested I contact the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, which I have and am waiting to hear back from.”

The same object was spotted by Andrew Hill who took the photo from Haresfield Beacon on Sunday evening.

Did you see the mysterious object falling from the sky?

    @SuperLiminal Sorry, but it's just ordinary contrail from an airliner. Similar events in the past: http://tinyurl.com/ye2paxa

    "ufoointerest" Has shown us fantastic examples of heavy geoengineering activity (massive, intentional weather modification agenda, more commonly referred to as "Chemtrails" or aerosol ops) in the pics featured in the links s/he shared; the vast majority of the shots shown are NOT condensation trails, b/c they come from JETLINERS that use TURBOFAN Engines and are generally incapable of creating "contrails" —by DESIGN.

    Meteor. Plane's contrail. Old, orbiting space junk re-entering the atmosphere. Mehhhh. Take your pick. *yawn*

    DS9074, What time did you take your photos? The aircraft that produced the contrail will possibly still be on Flight Radar 24 playback facility? I agree with you that it is simply an aircraft contrail. It is amazing the amount of people they fool and especially and sunset and sunrise.

    I saw the same thing from Shab Hill near the Air Balloon on Sunday night and took some photos, which I have sent to the email address. Sorry to be cynical but it looked like the contrail of a plane to me at the time and still does.

    Has anyone asked Frank Tunbridge what it might be?

  • Kay_Powell  |  March 12 2014, 3:02PM

    Yes, there's a lot of junk up there.
