- A strange looking object has been seen flittering over the skies of Cornwall
- Locals posted clips to social media of the shimmering black object in the sky
- Its movements across the county were uncharacteristic of a flock of birds
- The Eden Project who are launching a space show have laid claim to the UFO
A strange looking object seen flittering over the skies of Cornwall left locals bemused, with some believing that aliens had paid a visit to the UK’s southernmost county.
A number of clips taken over the past couple of days shows a shimmering black object in the sky morphing into different shapes and sizes, uncharacteristic of a flock of birds.
Surfer Kiefer Krishnan, caught the strange object on his Go-Pro camera while hitting the waves on Monday.
The same day photographer Shayne House spotted the UFO, which appears to disappear and re-materialise, over the A30, declaring on Twitter: ‘What the?! Is this an alien spacecraft over the A30?’
Also on Monday Harry Wild, who works in food marketing, caught the object over Fistral beach and asked on Twitter if anyone else had seen it.
On Tuesday, there were more sightings with beauty blogger Stephanie, who runs the ‘cocochic’ website, also recording the mysterious moving shades in the sky while going to the hairdressers in Truro.
She tweeted: ‘filmed this in Truro today before my hair apt..can someone please explain?’
Others commented that it looked like a swarm of birds or insects.
The belief that aliens may have chosen Cornwall as their first landing point on Earth was short lived however.
The Eden Project, who are hosting its new Journey Into Space attraction on July 27, have hinted that they had something to do with the quickly moving black smudge in the skies.
A spokesperson for the centre said: ‘It’s true we have a galaxy of ways to tell the story of space at Eden this summer. To coin a phrase… ”The truth is out there.”
