    Default UFO sighting in Liverpool Jan 7th 2009 at 4.30pm

    Did anyone else see a possible UFO sighting in Liverpool today (Jan 7th 2009 at 4.30pm). I took the following photo of what looked like a missile or rocket? rising from the skyline in Liverpool. I was stood near Catharine Street and the object appeared to be rising from near the Albert Dock direction. As I spotted it, there was also a trail of what seemed to be another object that was traveling in the opposite direction, towards the ground. The object I captured on camera (my iPhone) continued to rise and then changed direction completely and started to move towards the Anglican Cathedral area and beyond very quickly. I went back home to get my video camera and captured about 10 seconds by which time it was moving away even further and I stopped filming. I have never seen anything like this before and wondered what it could be.

    One firework going up as the remnants of another spent one comes down.

    There's no such things as alien beings. UFO's maybe until they are properly identified as chinese lanterns or some other mundane object.

    They did land once, behind Speke baths but someone stole a handle of the saucer door and their not coming back. Not even for a big clock

    Default ufo sighting

    Funny enough my wife and i where just leaving the womens hospital around that time. We did not see your UFO but we did notice there was a lot of high altitude aircraft in the air that afternoon. My wife comented that she had never seen so many vapor trails at once.

    Thanks Danny. That's interesting. I never saw an aircraft take off at this this trajectory before which is why I initially thought it was unusual. Then when I saw a trail of what looked like something heading to the ground it looked even more strange.

    I have also only just noticed that the other downward trail can be see in the trees on the image. Both of these were moving very fast.

    Hi Digital Peace. Sorry to say that i don't think it is a UFO, it is however an illusion created by the aircraft flying high in the atmosphere coming over the curvature of the earth directly in-line with Liverpool. I've seen this before when i was a teenager and was explained to me by a then pilot in training.

    Looks a lot like a plane vapour trail to me too, it's all about the atmopheric conditions where sometimes you can see lots of these criss crossing at different altitudes and angles giving the impression they are vertical when in fact they're not.

    yes although i never said anything in my last post my wife did point out that one of them had a strange trajectory. The other thing i find strange is todays news. so soon after your sighting. I do believe in UFOs but not aliens.

    Take a look at this photo taken by a friend some time ago, he has only shown it to a few people, he thought people would think him a fool.
