Unexplained reports of a strange 200-foot object hovering in the skies around Wakefield emerged this week when secret government files were released.

Mystery still surrounds sightings of a huge cylinder-shaped craft which stunned eyewitnesses at Emley Moor in the early hours of November 2, 1986.

How an object might have looked, streaking across the night sky over Peterborough
Anyone who witnessed a ball of flame streaking across the night sky on Wednesday evening will be relieved to discover that the end of the world is definitely not nigh.

UFO spotters, however, may find it something of a disappointment that the fiery spectacle seen lingering above Peterborough was certainly not an alien spacecraft crashing to Earth.

Since 6.30pm on Wednesday, The Evening Telegraph has been inundated with calls and e-mails from readers who saw a strange fireball cutting a swath across the heavens for several minutes.

Great start for 'UFO Hunters'

In the kickoff episode to the sophomore season of "UFO Hunters," researcher Pat Uskert illuminates a glaring paradox. The reality-show team is investigating an Illinois case Uskert describes this way:
There's a lot of evidence we've gotten, there's a lot of witness testimony spread over a wide geographic area, and the case is really fresh - it's current.
So why is "fresh" and "current" airing on The History Channel?

US: Retired pilot explains 1957 UFO incident

Kendall, Fla. - If you believe former fighter pilot Milton Torres' story - and news organizations are running with it - the Air Force was seconds from attacking an alien aircraft over England late one cloudy night in 1957.

Possible interstellar war was averted when the unidentified flying object sped away.

"It was not made of this Earth," said Torres, 77, a retired Florida International University engineering professor. "I'd love to take a tour of that ... UFO, whatever it was."

The account was included in thousands of pages of UFO-related documents recently declassified by the British Ministry of Defense and posted online. To everyone's surprise, the truth was not just out there, but in Florida, where Torres lives with his wife, Dorothy.

The alien-like cloud glowed brightly over the streets of Mayfair in the early morning. It hovered over buildings before breaking up and slowly disappearing.

But after dismissing theories of UFOs and atmospheric phenomenons, the Met Office said the blob was likely to be nothing more than the lights of the city reflected in a cloud.

The retired RAF aircraft technician saw an object about the size of a car between 1,000 and 2,000 feet up. It was moving from east to west at around 250mph and was flame yellow with a translucent dome on top.

The object moved silently.

Ken said: "First impression was of a small aircraft on fire, but it kept the same altitude and speed until out of sight for some four to five minutes. I was an aircraft technician with the RAF for 24 years and have never seen anything like it."
