Is this a UFO over Carlisle?

This footage of a mysterious light in the sky was shot in Carlisle on Easter Sunday night.


Taken from Chertsey Grove looking back towards the city, the fireball-like object was spotted by a group of people at about 10pm.

One said it moved in a straight line before suddenly changing direction. It was then spotted about five minutes later and did exactly the same before disappearing at speed.

Is it a UFO? Did you see it as well? If it is not an alien craft, can you offer an explanation? Have you seen something you can't explain?

Have your say

OMG.Its a paper flying lantern.However,I did see five aliens jumping out of a lorry trailer on Sunday night!
