Subject: Strange Bright Object Photographed Over Leeds UK

On Thursday, February 1st, 2007, a video recorded on a
cameraphone was sent to Russel Callaghan at UFOData Magazine. It
also appeared on local BBC TV news programme, Look North.

The clip can be found at:


By a remarkable stroke of fortune, UFOData Magazine researcher
and features writer, Sacha Christie saw the object and took a
great photograph. It can be found on the UFOData Forum (
http://www.ufodata.co.uk/forum )

Enquiries have been made into what this could be, including
contacting RAF Fylingdales, and UFOData Magazine will publish
the findings when we learn more.

The object is somewhat similar to what was photographed in Wales
in 2003. That was initially thought to be a meteor or bolide
exploding in the atmosphere and it made the Astronomy Picture of
the Day for 1st October, 2003. That was eventually explained as
an aeroplane contrail illuminated by the setting sun. What was
seen today, however, does not seem to be the same, as the object
was seen to move across the sky.

Hopefully more answers will emerge soon.
