A UFO spotted over West Lancashire could feature on an American Sci-Fi programme after experts denied the photograph was a fake.
Pat Regan, 51, of Sandbrook Road, snapped the oval object during the stormy weather last weekend and has since been hounded by international press.
He said: "I took a simple picture of a very unusual natural phenomena and inadvertently snapped a UFO at the same time. The worldwide media interest has been incredible, with the story cropping up in many countries. I am just gobsmacked by it all!"
Full Description of event/sighting: Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada July 25-26/2008 2:00 am to 5:30 am
The event (which is still ongoing) occurred on July 25/2008 around 2:00 AM. I went outside to have a smoke and was laying down on my picnic table and was looking at the stars like I often do and to my surprise I saw a very dim star moving in the sky and at first thought it was the space station which I have seen many times. I quickly realized it was not the space station due to the speed at which the object was moving and also by the way it was moving.
The X-Files: I Want to Believe, a film based on the popular television series about two FBI agents who investigate paranormal cases, lands in movie theaters today.
And while agents Scully and Mulder explore the X-Files, we decided to take a look at the M-Files - some of Mississippi's unexplained sightings.
We asked readers if they had ever seen an unidentified flying object, and received many responses. Here are some of them:

On the 27th of July tens of citizens of the Russian city of Kaliningrad witnessed an UFO. For nearly an hour the unknown silver object hung over the local Blue Lakes. According to the witnesses, the discus-shaped UFO attracted attention of the locals who had a rest at the lakes and they started waving their hands as a sign of greeting to the object. Some people started making shots of the object and shooting video with their mobile phones.
Around 8 a.m. this morning, U.S. Coast Guard officials suspended a search for the source of emergency flares that were seen in the San Joaquin River in Contra Costa County.
At 1:30 a.m. Saturday, a red flare was reported in the river around the Antioch Bridge, Petty Officer Laura Alcon said. A Coast Guard boat and helicopter searched for hours until 3:30 a.m., two additional red flares were seen, she said.
Not only is this video clip freaky it makes you think that there is something definitely out there. I found this Phoenix UFO video clip on the internet at Youtube.com. I have to say that the clarity is exceptional, the quality is amazing, and the film does not look doctored in any way at all.
Rosario - I was driving in my car along Calle 3 de Febrero in a westbound direction, paying attention to the traffic, when something in the sky drew my attention. Upon looking upward, I saw several objects floating some 60 degrees over the horizon. They seemed very distant and very high in the air.
The most outstanding thing was a "sort of dirigible balloon suspended in the air" - it was shiny, white, did not make any erratic movements and remained static. To its right, and beneath it, was a lens-shaped object; above this one, was another lens-shaped object, and still another one to the right of the "balloon" - it was clear that these were parallel to the surface, all of them reflecting the sun's light on their surfaces, as if metallic. To the far right of this cluster of objects were six objects, keeping distance between each other. No apparent movement was discernible among these either.
In 2002, Gary McKinnon was arrested by the UK's national high-tech crime unit, after being accused of hacking into Nasa and the US military computer networks.
He says he spent two years looking for photographic evidence of alien spacecraft and advanced power technology.
The U.S. Bush administration now wants to put him on trial, and if tried there he could face 60 years behind bars.
The search for proof of the existence of UFOs landed Gary McKinnon in a world of trouble.
Clark McClelland is a retired Spacecraft Operator with NASA who during a 34 year career was responsible for ensuring the safety of numerous NASA missions including Mercury spaceflights, Apollo missions, the International Space Station and the Space Shuttle. In a statement released on his website on July 29, 2008, McClelland revealed that he witnessed an eight to nine foot tall extraterrestrial in association with a Space Shuttle mission he was monitoring from the Kennedy Space Center. He wrote
"I, Clark C. McClelland, former ScO [Spacecraft Operator], Space Shuttle Fleet, personally observed an 8 to 9 foot tall ET on his 27 inch video monitors while on duty in the Kennedy Space Center, Launch Control Center (LCC). The ET was standing upright in the Space Shuttle Payload Bay having a discussion with TWO tethered US NASA Astronauts! I also observed on my monitors, the spacecraft of the ET as it was in a stabilized, safe orbit to the rear of the Space Shuttle main engine pods. I observed this incident for about one minute and seven seconds. Plenty of time to memorize all that I was observing. IT WAS AN ET and Alien Star Ship!"
Sitting in the lobby of the Hilton Hotel, Gilbert Landis turned to the person next to him and, without a giggle, said this:
"I'm here because 10,500 years ago my wife and I made a mistake."
A few seats over, Clark McClelland from Orlando was talking about secret autopsies performed on alien creatures and Nazi scientists who escaped to secret Antarctic bases where they have been building flying saucers.
