It’s traditional for UFO sightings to involve really awful, low-resolution cameras which turn the ‘alien’ visitor into an indistinct blob in the distance.
But a sighting this June in Texas captured a classic, Fifties-style ‘flying saucer’ on HD camera.
The two UFO-spotters had gone to the area in search of alien craft (hence they’d brought a camera).
Jose Salvador captured the footage, and estimates the size of the craft to be 20-30 feet - around the size of a four-wheel drive.
He claims it was ‘rotating’ in the sky - and that while he heard no noise, there was a strange ‘vibration’.
Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual, says that he suspects the footage may be faked - but that it has a hypnotic quality, reminiscent of classic sci-fi such as Gerry Anderson’s ‘UFO’ series.
