London: An encouraging development has taken place for those who believe in extra-terrestrial life. People in Portsmouth saw an unidentified flying object (UFO) in the sky at dusk.
According to a met official, the object has nothing to do with the weather.
"Given the pictures show a dark object against a daytime sky, it is clearly not an astronomical object," Karen Masters from the University of Portsmouth was quoted as saying.
"My initial thought was it was an aeroplane, but it was just moving too quickly," a resident was quoted as saying in media reports.
"It was a grey, disc-like shape, which I know sounds like a stereotypical UFO, but that's what it looked like," added another local.
People soon went to Twitter to report about the possible UFO sighting.
"Watching the sky and saw what looked like a UFO! Starting to believe in what people have been saying," wrote Josh Harcourt-Kelly on his Twitter post.
