On Tuesday night a UFO was seen blazing over Salford Precinct at around 10pm. Eye witness, Rachel, has described it as "a bright orange light, like a fire ball moving at a steady space. It was really weird".

It wasn't the sun by any chance? There's been similar spottings in Irlam a few nights before and all over Geater Manchester recently. There was even an 'encounter' in Eccles last year.

Rachel has logged the alien visitors on the UK UFO Sightings website and asked for any other witnesses. If anyone else saw the 'bright orange light' please register it at UK UFO Sightings.
