It’s no secret that West Yorkshire has a bit of an obsession with UFOs. Now, it’s been revealed that the area surrounding Leeds was the most popular location for UFO sightings in the UK in June.
UFO sightings are very much back in vogue since the Pentagon released its declassified UFO report, detailing all the data that US security services have amassed over the years.
In the last year, it’s believed there have been at least 200 reports of mysterious flying objects in the United Kingdom alone.
Until 2009, The Royal Air Force was responsible for handling and recording all reports regarding UFOs- due to ‘no evidence of a threat.’
However, it appears that in recent years the UK government does have a team that unofficially look into things that deemed otherwise unexplainable – according to Nick Pope, anyway, who investigated UFOs for the Ministry of Defence during the early 1990s.
Closer to home, Ash Ellis, who runs the website UFO Identified, has revealed a large number of sightings were reported across the skies of Yorkshire in 2021.
Reports revealed in and around Leeds include a “black triangle” shaped object on June 15, whilst another sighting of two “black curved crafts flying information” was also recorded in the city in June.
It’s said the UFO’s were seen to be travelling at high speed “before suddenly stopping in mid-air” for four seconds, the report reads.
It’s alleged in the report that these ‘craft’ had “no noise or lights visible” and had a “bubble effect” around them.
Elsewhere, in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, a “silver sausage-shaped object” has been spotted in the sky – allegedly turning to black before “disappearing’ entirely.
Other recent UFO sightings in and around Leeds include a dark circular object followed by four similar but smaller objects in Bingley, West Yorkshire.
