The object was apparently at least half a kilometre in length and was sighted over Sussex. As the supposed UFO lowers from the sky, it creates a huge circular shape within the clouds. A woman named Melissa French was the first to make the sighting, saying: “I was looking out of the window at the moon with my grandson, that’s when I noticed it.
“I wasn’t sure what to make of it to be honest as it looked peculiar; the shape of it made me think of a UFO, so I took a photo of it and posted it on Facebook.”
Conspiracy theorists quickly picked up on the sighting, claiming it is genuine evidence of aliens.
Prominent UFO hunter Scott C Waring wrote on his blog UFO Sightings Daily: “This UFO in the clouds was formed when a cloaked UFO came down and settled among the cloud ceiling.
“The UFOs great bulk pushes the clouds aside leaving a huge disk hole. This UFO looks to be 1/2km across.”
However, the phenomenon could easily be explained by a weather phenomenon known as a fallstreak hole.
This is when a particular part of the cloud freezes into ice crystal and the crystals are heavy enough to drop out of the clouds, creating a shape.
While the existence of aliens has never been confirmed, the US’ Department of Defense (DoD) has recently acknowledged a video from a US Navy pilot’s radar footage of a mystery UFO with “glowing aura” and flying erratically.
The video first circulated back in 2017, but it took the DoD three years to acknowledge the video’s existence.
According to Pentagon spokeswoman Sue Gough, the sighting was released “in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos”.
She said: “After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorised release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena.”
When the 2017 footage emerged, a former Pentagon employee Luis Elizondo, who headed up a secret official UFO program, said it was “compelling evidence” we might not be alone in the universe.
Mr Elizondo said: “These aircraft – we’ll call them aircraft – are displaying characteristics that are not currently within the US inventory nor in any foreign inventory that we are aware of.
“Things that don’t have any obvious flight services, any obvious forms of propulsion, and manoeuvring in ways that include extreme manoeuvrability beyond, I would submit, the healthy G-forces of a human or anything biological.”
