Taxi driver spots orange shapes in sky over Hungerford and man sees UFO the size of four football pitches above Thatcham
More reports of UFO sightings in the summer skies above West Berkshire have left people baffled.
A Swindon taxi driver recently added to the growing list of supernatural occurrences spotted by locals in the district.
Having just dropped off a fare in Hungerford, Neil Whitby spotted four bright orange shapes in the sky.
A four-year-old girl who claims her name is Kalpana Chawla and that she died up in the skies four years ago is drawing huge crowds in a village here in Uttar Pradesh.
Residents of Nar Mohammadpur village, about 35 km from here, where little Upasana is visiting her relatives, think she might be the reincarnation of the India born astronaut Kalpana Chawla, who died when US space shuttle Columbia crashed four years ago.
The news of the girl's claim spread quickly in the area after she spoke to some villagers here.
'I am Kalpana Chawla,' says Upasana, who reportedly fears the sight an aircraft. She has been telling her illiterate parents that she died in a 'crash' up in the skies.
Thirty years ago, a corner of south west Wales was caught up in a "flap" - a wave of sightings in an area - that became known as The Broad Haven Triangle.
It's 60 years since the term flying saucer was first coined, and I have to admit I hold a rather cynical view when it comes to UFOs and alien life.
But no matter how much of an unbeliever you are, the idea of extraterrestrial life cannot fail to quicken the pulse and the notion has captivated the imagination of people all across the globe for decades.
And it's not likely to go away - the lure of the unexplained has long proved irresistible and, with space tourism becoming a reality, our fascination with close encounters can only grow.
Dawn Raimond, a 41-year-old resident of Round Hill, saw something strange in the sky over Lake Tahoe from the deck of her home on the evening of June 19.
According to Raimond, she was sitting outside on her deck at about 11:40 p.m. looking at the stars, when she noticed moving lights in the sky.
"The stars starting moving," she said.
The lights were arranged straight up and down, according to Raimond, and then started spreading out.
Raimond called her daughter, Raven, 20, outside to witness the strange lights. As the lights came closer to their house, the women were able to make out a strange object with two lights.

It's an age-old question: Are we alone in the universe?
As the documentary Out of the Blue rightly points out, brilliant and reputable scientists believe that the conditions for intelligent life exist on thousands of planets. But then there's that other question that separates the scientists from the believers, the witnesses from the skeptics if aliens are out there, have they come to visit?
James Fox, the producer of Out of the Blue, says that aliens are out there. "They're flying around. They're here and they've been here."
He also believes that they have incredible technical ability, saying that they can "fly rings around our fastest jets. Yes. That's what I've been told. They can literally almost disappear in place."
Out of the Blue is an attempt to weed out the wackos and present credible witnesses who say they saw what looked like alien spacecraft. Witnesses like former President Carter, who said, "I saw one, but I don't know where. It just disappeared." And Mercury astronaut Gordon Cooper, who says he saw "this typical saucer shape, double-cylindrical shape, metallic."
An orange ball and lights in the sky has left a Cheshunt man wondering if aliens really do exist.

Paul Adams, 52, snapped these strange shots and is now appealing for anyone else who saw or can identify the potentially paranormal activity to come forward.
His friends have suggested extraterrestrials could be behind the drama although Paul, of Pengelly Close, is slightly more sceptical.
Paul had been watching films at about 3am on Wednesday last week when he decided to go outside for a cigarette.
Members of the organization UFO-Sweden are currently knocking on doors nationwide in a bid to follow up on reports of strange phenomena sighted in the skies.
According to chairman Clas Svahn, UFO-Sweden receives an average of one report per day of peculiar flashes, aircraft and extra-terrestrial beings.
Ninety percent of all reports concern easily explainable atmospheric light phenomena. At one point, many sightings could be traced to secret missile launches in the then Soviet Union.
"Today we can explain much more than we could thirty years ago. But there are some genuinely strange cases," said Svahn.
Didim became the UFO sighting capital of Turkey when several people reported seeing strange lights ın the skies.
The strange yellowish melon-shaped ball was spotted by the Police Academy in Yeşilkent, while regulars at the Ark Cafe Bar, in Hunters Valley, spotted the same UFO-style lights at about 9.30pm last Saturday night.
Phil and Lorraine Quibell said they spotted the strange lights heading towards them but hundreds of meters off the ground as they walked on the Yeşilkent road, close to the police academy at about 9.30pm.
They described how the melon-shaped object was moving fast and in a straight line before swerving towards the police academy direction and towards the sea before disappearing over the horizon.
Mr Quibell, aged 52, formerly from Preston, said the object was a bright sun colour at the top but faded to a yellowish-moonlight colour below.
The public relations officer at the Roswell air base in 1947 has released claims that he saw a crashed spacecraft and the bodies of aliens at the site, despite a lifetime spent denying any such things.
In the affidavit, Lieutenant Walter Haut says the weather balloon was a cover story, and that the real crashed object had been stored by the military. He also claims to have handled the material from which the crashed craft had been constructed.
Haut died last year, but left instructions that his statement should be opened after his death.
In it, Haut described a meeting he attended on the morning of the crash:
The Aurigny captain, who claimed to have spotted two huge UFOs off Alderney two months ago, explained the sightings on the Richard & Judy Show and CNN on Monday night.
Capt. Bowyer was quizzed about the incident by the couple and discovered that the objects he saw were similar to a UFO photographed in New Mexico, USA, in 1957.
He told the Channel Four couple that he was now working with Dr David Clark, a writer for the Fortean Times and lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University who appeared in the Guernsey Press last month, to try to discover more about the sightings.
'That photo from New Mexico was surprisingly similar and Dr Clark will be looking into the similarities,' he said.
