Could this be aliens looking down on a Wigan man from their UFO?
A Wigan dad has been left wondering if he has had an extra-terrestrial experience after an unidentified flying object hovered over his home.
Stephen Jones was letting the dogs out on Monday evening when he saw a strange and inexplicable sight in the sky.
The 28-year-old father of one is now a resident of Leyland near Preston and it was here that he had his weird vision of the bright, saucer-shaped object shortly after 8pm.
He shouted for his girlfriend but she didn't come, and while he didn't have the presence of mind to film the odd goings-on, he did take several pictures from the back of his Redwood Avenue house in the sunroom.
Stephen said: "I thought it was very odd. Luckily I had my mobile phone on me for the camera other wise it wouldn't have been believable.
"It was a complete suprise as I was letting my two dogs out in the garden when I first saw it.
"It was visible for at least five minutes then I went back in the house as I could hear my baby crying.
"When I looked again after 30 minutes it was gone.
"I am going to be looking again tonight in my free time.
"I wouldn't like to say what it was but it was very strange - not like any air craft I have seen. I wish I did know what it was."
