UFO hunters claim that a large “flying saucer” UFO visited Stonehenge a few days before the Summer Solstice.
Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England, is one of the most famous prehistoric construction sites in the world. It consists of a circular formation of erect stone slabs set within an earth bank and ditch. The structure is believed to have gone through various stages of construction between 3000 B.C. and 2000 B.C.
UFO Sightings Blog reports that a disc-shaped object, presumed to be an alien craft, was photographed hovering over the site a few days before Summer Solstice. The object, which hovered briefly before disappearing, was described as a black-colored, medium-sized UFO, about 20-30ft (6-9m) in diameter.
But, according to the Daily Mail, a UFO expert, David Clarke, described the claimed sighting as “unconvincing.” In his opinion, the UFO was probably a bird.
Needless to say, skeptics’ take on UFO sightings have never dissuaded believers from elaborating fantastic theories about UFOs and alien visitations. And this is not the first time that UFO and alien enthusiasts have reported UFO sightings in the sky over the prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, near Amesbury and Salisbury in England.
Recently, declassified government documents, the so-called “Britain’s X-Files”, include a photo showing a UFO hovering in the sky over the site.
The attraction of UFOs and supposed extraterrestrials to the monument is understandable, given the air of mystery in which the site is shrouded.
Some UFO and alien hunters claim that an alien species constructed the site as a landing pad for their spacecraft. The recent sighting has sparked speculation among believers that the alien race that constructed the site for its purpose might have returned after centuries of absence.
If, indeed, an alien species constructed Stonehenge as a landing pad for their spacecraft, they would be disappointed to see that the site has become a major attraction for the weirder variety of earthlings. And if the aliens wish to visit Earth and land without attracting undue attention, they will be forced to relocate their landing pad to a more private location.
Despite speculations among members of the UFO and alien community that the site has extraterrestrial links, scholars say they are uncertain why prehistoric Britons erected the monument. Experts have proposed various suggestions. Some scholars believe the site might have been a religious astronomical observatory, while others speculate that it was used for religious burial and afterlife rites and ceremonies.
