A FLUORESCENT green disk was spotted hovering over Whiteshill on Friday night, prompting speculation online that an alien spacecraft had invaded Five Valley’s airspace.

The mysterious object was sighted by several eyewitnesses throughout the evening of October 4 and was also captured on camera in the early hours of Saturday morning by a motorist driving from Painswick to Stroud.

It was first viewed by mixed martial arts enthusiast Sam Villeneuve around 9pm on Friday evening.

Mr Villeneuve tweeted a picture of the UFO to the SNJ and reported seeing it ‘floating’ in the sky above him.

Later on it was photographed again, this time by the motorist, who was able to take several shots of the suspected flying saucer before it vanished in the night sky.

“I spotted a ring of light in the sky. It was like a blue or green ball and it was just sat above the treeline at about 1am in the morning,” he said.

“I pulled over in the bus stop near Edge to get some pictures. The object then simply disappeared after a few minutes.

“I don’t believe in UFOs personally but it was definitely odd. It wasn’t hovering like a helicopter would. It was really strange."

Just above the treeline? Better hadn't mention that to Stroud's very own Swampy!

This looks exactly like the object I saw in 1968, as it came over my neighbor's house here in Ky at less than 100 ft. in the air. It travelled very slowly and was pulsating an emerald green color emanating from inside. I watched it travel over our orchard where it disappeared before my very eyes. I don't mean flew off--it simply disappeared. The next day I went to our orchard looking for traces at the point where it disappeared, but found nothing. I have maintained an interest in UFOs since then. Very few times over the years has an object of exactly this type been reported in the media. This object's resemblance to the one I saw 45 years ago is exact, as well as exhibiting similar behavior. I will add that my sighting was much closer. I estimated the object to be entirely spherical and had a diameter of @ 8 feet, unless I have severely misjudged it's altitude.

The limits of the physical world means interstellar travel is very unlikely and even in a vastly superior technological society would, only, be achievable at huge cost; so the chances that they incur such cost to simply pop over have a quick look then bugger off is so unlikely as to be ridicules.
