Ian Gibbons, from Colne, in Lancashire, UK, said he was looking through his patio window a couple of weeks ago, around 6:30 p.m., when he saw a U̳F̳O̳ appear from what he described as “a portal”.
Mr. Gibbons, 72, said it was “like something out of a science fiction movie,” but before he could do anything he vanished.
He said: “On a good night, Mars and Venus are usually seen from where I live, as we have magnificent views of the countryside, and on this particular night the sky was clear and Venus had just appeared.
“I don\\\’t really like star gazing, I just like to look out the window and admire the sky, so I went to the patio and took a look. But suddenly, the U̳F̳O̳ came out of a portal: it was red and orange and circular.
“I grabbed my binoculars and got a good look at it as it floated for a few seconds, but in the blink of an eye it shot up into the sky and then sped toward Skipton.”
So far, it is unclear what the object could be. Mr. Gibbons said that he had never seen anything like it in his life, and that he hasn\\\’t seen anything like it since.
“It was definitely not an airplane or someone lighting up, I had a fantastic view, it was like something out of a science fiction movie.”
