A FAMILY out walking on a Yorkshire moorland claim to have captured a Star Trek-shaped UFO flying overhead. The dark grey object, which appears to have a halo around it, was snapped by Nicole Smith, 19, on her smartphone during a family day out to Bronte waterfalls, in West Yorkshire. She was with her parents Catherine and Shane at the time and was shocked when she discovered the UFO on one of her photos. Her mum Catherine, 49, from Normanton, said: “We went for a day out in Haworth and decided to drive to the moor and parked near a footpath leading to Bronte waterfalls.
“It was a good two and a half mile walk from where the car was parked.
“My daughter was taking random pictures of the sheep and scenery on our way back from the falls. It was around 5.30pm when she took the picture on her mobile phone.
“It was only when we were on our way home she was scanning through the photos she had taken, she noticed the object in the picture.”
The picture has been studied by an American optical physicist formerly employed by the US Navy.
Dr Bruce Maccabee, who is now a leading Ufologist, said: “I’m not aware of anything that looks like this. The image is too small for good resolution.
“It was not seen at the time so no information on distance. It might be some sort of insect within ten feet from the camera.”
