A WIGAN man claims to have seen martians meandering through the skies over Marsh Green.
The man, who doesn’t wish to be named, spotted a mysterious object last night (Tuesday) and was so stunned he whipped out his mobile phone and filmed it.
“It was big and orange and moving oddly - it wasn’t a plane or helicopter and it looked too big to be one of those chinese lantern things. I don’t know what it was. Perhaps it was martians, who knows?
“It was late - about quarter past eleven - and I was just going to bed when I saw it out the corner of my eye.”
There have been numerous sightings of strange objects over the skies of Wigan during the last decade - some easily explained, some not so.
Chinese Lanterns are indeed responsible for a lot of UFO sightings as they float slowly through the sky before disappearing as they finally burn out.
