Picture the scene: you're admiring a stunning sunset when an alien craft swoops in to spoil the view. 

Was that what happened to Daphne Denley last month as she marvelled at a picture-perfect Gloucestershire landscape?

She claims to have photographed an unidentified flying object - UFO - as she snapped the setting sun. Daphne admitted the tale sounded "bonkers".

She told the Adver's sister paper the Stroud News and Journal that she had been using her camera to photograph a stunning sunset over Rodborough, near Stroud, on May 17. When she looked at the images she spotted the unexplained object. 

"You have to see it to believe it," Daphne said.

"I did wonder if it was from the flash on my camera or perhaps the street lighting.

"Having looked at the photo details, my camera flash was off and at the same time the next night no street lighting was on.

"I sound bonkers, I know, but these things don't happen much... or do they?"

Frederick Delaere, coordinator of the Belgian UFO Reporting Centre, told The Daily Telegraph that more people being at home and looking at the sky as a result of coronavirus, clear weather, and the large number of Starlink satellites launched by Elon Musk's company SpaceX could be reasons behind a recent rise in UFO sightings.
