UFO Spotted During Morning TV Broadcast
The following article concerning a UFO being caught on a live BBC broadcast appeared on the Telegraph Newspaper website 7 August 2009.
A UFO was captured flying across the screen during a morning news broadcast in Newcastle. In the footage the speeding projectile appears from the lower left hand side of the screen and seems to pass under the wide arch of Newcastle’s Millennium Bridge.
A webcam filming an area of the River Tyne recorded a streak of white light shooting upwards at a forty-five degree angle travelling at considerable speed.
In the footage the speeding projectile appears from the lower left hand side of the screen and seems to pass under the wide arch of Newcastle’s Millennium Bridge before disappearing out of the top of the screen.
The clip, which has since been uploaded onto video sharing website YouTube, is eliciting theories ranging from model aeroplanes to potential swamp gas.
The webcam was filming an section of the River Tyne which also includes the Sage music venue, Gateshead, and Tyne Bridge.
Nick Pope, a former Ministry of Defence UFO investigator, said: “At first I thought it was a bird, but the slowed down footage seems to rule this out. It’s an intriguing film and a genuine mystery.”
In a later broadcast, Mr Briggs said: “A question worthy of Crimewatch. Were you watching a TV around five past nine yesterday morning? Did you see the breakfast headlines and did you spot something suspicious in the screen behind me? Have a look. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? What is it? We don’t know, perhaps you can help. If so do let us know, and remember, don’t have nightmares.”
