Police in Wales filmed a UFO craft over the Bristol Channel last week and uploaded the video to Twitter, asking social media followers for suggestions that could help to identify it.
The footage has caused excitement among members of the UFO community. UFO conspiracy theorists say that police documentation of the mysterious craft could be the definitive proof of alien visitations to our planet that skeptics have been waiting for.
The UFO was filmed on Saturday, September 17, 2016, at about 1,000 feet over the Bristol Channel by a stunned police helicopter pilot.
The Bristol Channel separates South Wales from South West England.
National Police Air Service (NPAS) based in St. Athan, a village in South Wales, shared part of the seven minutes footage (see below) with their Twitter followers on Friday, September 23, 2016. They asked for suggestions that could help solve the UFO mystery, adding an alien emoji to the tweet.
"Any suggestion? Nothing seen by local ATC [Air Traffic Control]. [Object was captured] over the Bristol Channel at approx 1,000ft."
