A MAN putting out his washing at the end of a day at work was astonished to spot a “UFO” soaring across the sky.
But Stephen Wilson may have been less shocked that many other Brits would by the strange spot.
That’s because he says he’s already seen one – and knows exactly what to look out for.
The 49-year-old has recorded other unknown objects on a number of occasions, Chronicle Live reports.
He said his most recent sighting happened at his home in Westerhope, Newcastle as he did laundry on Thursday.
“I’d got in from work and I was washing my clothes,” hy het gesê.

“I went to take them out and put them in the garden.
“As I looked up, I saw this sparkly thing.”
He initially believed the object would have a mundane and easily-explained origin.
“I thought at first that it was a balloon,” hy het gesê.

“But I was watching it tumble and I thought, ‘That’s not a balloon’.
“My sister was here so I shouted her. She came out and I asked her if she could see it too.
“It was coming over the top and I started taking photographs.”
He then noticed something very unusual.
“There was no sound, not an engine or anything,” hy het gesê.
“If it was a drone it would have been buzzing away.”
Stephen says he’s spotted UFO's from his Meadow Rise home in 2018 en 2020.
By hierdie geleentheid, he said the object began “moving quite fast”.
It headed off towards the A1… Later, I was thinking about whether it was a UFO
“It stayed at the same height – about the height of a helicopter flying around – and then it turned and headed off towards the A1,” hy het gesê.
“Later on I was thinking about if it was a UFO or some sort of experimental drone.
“You know what’s going on with Russia, is it something else? Ek weet nie.
“It wasn’t a plane, it wasn’t a helicopter, definitely not a balloon because it was flashing. It’s not the twinkling of the sun that, you can see it’s physically flashing.”

He shared footage to Facebook, and discovered there was a similar incident just over two miles away at the same time.
“Apparently there was an incident in Gateshead on the same day at roughly the same time where all the car alarms went off,” Stephen said.
