Boothstown UFO

Has Boothstown had ex terrestrial visitors?

Friday February 3rd. 2017

Shortly after 8:00 am this morning an unidentified flying object was spotted hovering above Standfield Centre in Boothstown.

The object described by one witness as being like a giant fluorescent light just seemed to appear out of nowhere one onlooker said it didn’t come from any where it just appeared out of nowhere.

The craft was described as a long tube with no windows silver in colour and shining very brightly.

After a few moments it disappeared as suddenly as it came, it did not head off in any direction it simply wasn’t there any more.

Theories have been put forward that it could have been a weather balloon but this does not explain how it could have just appeared a balloon would have been seen to arrive from one direction. This is believed to be the first sighting of any UFO over Boothstown. If you have any suggestions for this phenomena contact The Bugle.
