A U̳F̳O̳ has supposedly been seen in the skies over Swindon, Wiltshire, with a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ believers claiming it is evidence of ex̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ activity in the skies above the UK.
A couple driving in their car were stunned to see a strange object floating in the sky. The object in question appeared to be almost perfectly stationary. As the couple drove around the corner, the object seemed almost immovable in the sky.
Videos show the supposed U̳F̳O̳ as being black in colour and shaped like a triangle.
The video was submitted to popular U̳F̳O̳ YouTube channel U̳F̳O̳ Institute.
A witness statement alongside the video said: “It was extremely bizarre to see a black triangle shaped object floating in the sky.
“There wasn’t really anything to indicate the size or proximity of the object.

“It just gave me that weird unsettled feeling when you genuinely have no idea what something is and what it’s doing.
“It’s not a drone and it’s not something that’s being held in place or bobbing about like a balloon.”
However, there are likely more logical explanations for the U̳F̳O̳ sighting.
For example, it could indeed be a drone which appears larger in size as there is no perspective on the size of the object.
While there is no proof that U̳F̳O̳s are here, the sightings and claims from conspiracy theorists can lead to bigger questions.
Chris Impey, university distinguished professor of astronomy at University of Arizona, wrote for The Conversation: “While U̳F̳O̳s continue to swirl in the popular culture, scientists are trying to answer the big question that is raised by U̳F̳O̳s: Are we alone?
“Astronomers have discovered over 4,000 exoplanets, or planets orbiting other stars, a number that doubles every two years.
“Some of these exoplanets are considered habitable since they are close to the Earth’s mass and at the right distance from their stars to have water on their surfaces.
