A FREAK lighting effect, a UFO or a paranormal visitation? Whatever it was, it looked like a demonic female face was caught hovering over the skies of Wigan.
Reader Donna Callow captured the image, which bears more than a passing resemblance to horror movie characters like the eponymous Orphan or one of the demons from The Grudge.
The 31-year-old from Durham Street, Whelley, said: “I couldn’t believe my eyes. I looked up and there was this pale face in the sky. When you zoom into the picture you see it has got a bit of hair down its face, black eyes, a nose and an open mouth. The weird thing is that we saw it two nights running in the same place and it wasn’t moving.
“It certainly wasn’t a plane or helicopter and we have seen plenty of Chinese lanterns to know that it wasn’t one of them either. We were baffled.”
