Man is left baffled by UFO sighting in skies above Louth

A MAN has been left ‘baffled’ after seeing a UFO whizzing round the skies above Louth.

Carl Hughes took to the internet and to report his experience as he smoked a cigarette outside his back door last Wednesday night, August 1.

He reported seeing an object low on the horizon which began to rise. After grabbing his binoculars he saw it begin to flash, before swerving off to the left.

He said it then ‘burst into life’ flying from left to right before fading to a flashing red light and eventually disappearing.

“The object was close enough to see a shape, like a rocket,” he said. I’ve never seen anything like this in all my life. Baffled.”
