The weird object left a fiery tail when it was spotted flying through the skies in Exmouth towards baffled onlookers
29/12/2016: Saucer-Like UFO Leaving Vapor Trail In Its Wake:
Photographed by Tyron Osbourne And Also Observed by Neighbours Mark and Clare Emmins as The Object Flew Over Exeter, Devon, UK
Cropped and darkened detail of object
Mark Emmins said he first noticed a white object in the sky at 1pm which was still present when the “blood-red sunset set in”.
He was stunned when three hours later, and watching with neighbour Tyron Osborne, the object began moving as they tried to take a picture.
“My neighbour Tyron Osbourne had asked ‘have you seen the comet?’,” said Mark, a local musician.
“All of sudden it began moving towards us coming from Dawlish towards Exmouth, which took about two minutes.
“It was leaving behind a trail and at the front of the object was a big bright light which went a dark colour as it neared.
“Then it just disappeared, vanished without a trace. There was absolutely nothing left behind.”
The most bizarre aspect, according to Mark, was that the “huge” UFO moved at the same time as six nearby white dots.
Mark, aged 53, said the sighting has left him “dumbfounded”, adding: “It definitely was not a plane because there was no trail afterwards.
“I have no idea what it was, we have been baffled.
“It wasn’t scary, but after seeing it move across the sky we were left thinking what on earth have we just seen? This was a ‘wow’.”
Even self confessed UFO sceptic Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual admitted: “the pictures seem consistent with the witness descriptions, and the length of the sighting suggests it wasn’t an aircraft or drone.”
So what was it then Nigel?
A few important extras to how the story was told in the press:
The witness Mark Emmins also added a few extra points; when we spoke to him he said, "you are seeing the picture like it's lifting up; in fact it, (the object) was above us going horizontally.
Also, the front of the object looked angled.
In addition, please be aware that the reason the picture has a darker background than might be expected, is because we tried to filter the original that was taken in daylight, to try and see more detail.
The camera used was a Fuji, (model not known) - my neighbour watches the skies so he ran and got it with a tripod."
