Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a UFO in the skies above East Lancashire.

And a recent sighting of a classic disc-shaped object over Barnoldswick has encouraged more eyewitnesses to come forward with their close encounters.
Accrington resident Mike Ashworth reported a sighting of a glowing object with flashing lights to website UK UFO.
He said that on December 13 he had been something in the sky above the town.
He said: “My family and I were getting out of our car and going into our house when I noticed something moving above me.
“I shouted to everyone ‘look at that’. It was a half spherical object that was bright lime green in colour with loads of red pulsating lights underneath it.
“Size in the sky was approximately the size of a golf ball when held at arm’s length.
“It took about 12 seconds to go from over head, to disappearing over Longridge Fell some 15 miles in a north-westerly direction.
“It made no noise and was travelling far faster that the commercial aircraft that fly over Accrington daily.”
