A student believes that he could have witnessed a large UFO hovering for several seconds on the Devon seafront.

Matthew Evans, 36, from Tidmouth couldn’t believe what he saw last week when he looked out his top-floor flat window.

He said he spotted a bright object with four lights in triangular formation flying in the night’s sky.

Within a matter of seconds, the object “zoomed off,” but luckily the mature student was able to get his phone out in time to photograph what he saw.

He told SWNS: “I couldn’t help but see it. My kitchen window gives a great view of the sea so when it came across the horizon.

“It wasn’t moving like a plane would. It was moving a lot slower and went up and down for a bit before hovering a good ten seconds.

“It stayed in one spot long enough for me to pull out my phone and get those snaps.

“Then it quickly zoomed off at some speed and I couldn’t see it anymore.”

He added: “The light was really bright.

“I just didn’t know what it could be so I decided to take a picture.

“I’m not quite losing my marbles yet.

“But it’s hard to place it so I suppose it is an unidentified flying object.”

This sighting comes just after the US government released a highly anticipated report on UFOs.

It looked into 144 reported sightings of “unidentified aerial phenomenon,” or “UAPs”, since 2004, mostly recorded by US Navy personnel first-hand.

The sightings were categorised into five categories: airborne clutter, natural atmospheric phenomena, U.S. government or American industry developmental programs, foreign adversary systems and “other.”

Only one out of the 144 sightings could be explained as “airborne clutter” while the rest were categorized as “other” as there wasn’t enough conclusive evidence to provide an explanation.

Spooky...
