This is the moment a mysterious UFO is spotted ‘hovering’ in the skies above Greater Manchester.

Video footage shows an unusual flying craft streaming through the air above Ashton-under-Lyne.

The clip shows what appears to be a black object in the air with dark grey trails streaming behind it.

As the recording plays through, the UFO continues to fly through the air, but doesn’t appear to move in any direction.

Sophie Birch says she and her partner were so shocked by what they saw while driving down Lees Road in Ashton-under-Lyne, they had to pull the car over.

Sophie, a 23-year-old PA from Ashton, said:

“We were driving along and suddenly we spotted it. We just couldn’t believe it – at first I thought it was a plane or something but it just wasn’t moving, it was hovering.

My boyfriend was driving and he slammed on his brakes, then we pulled over so we could both see it better.”

On the video the couple have a conversation trying to work out what it is they are seeing, but Sophie says it remains unexplained.

She said:

“It was so unusual, we kept watching it for quite a while and there’s no simple explanation as to what it is, I think it could be aliens – my sister said it was.

“You can see on the video it’s like a black ship, with something coming out of the back.

“At one point we saw a flock of birds flying suddenly away from it like they were scared.”
