UFO or just a star? Bright light seen above Yorkshire ‘every night this month’

A large ball of light has been spotted in the night sky by local residents in West Yorkshire.

The light has been confusing some local residents who are unsure of what it is, whilst some even believe it’s possibly a UFO.

One video uploaded on YouTube shows the stationary light illuminating the night sky over the Longwood area of Huddersfield.

According to the uploader, it’s been seen all week and every night this month. She also claims it isn’t Jupiter, Venus, the International Space Station (ISS) or the moon.

Watch the video below.

Last month, there were two supposed sightings of ‘UFO’s’ over West Yorkshire. One was seen in Leeds a day after one was seen in neighbouring Bradford.

Do you know what the light could be? Let us know in the comments.

    I’m currently staring at this strange light. I am trying to focus my hearing to determine if it’s a helicopter, but it’s definitely silent, moving, but silent.

    All I can hear are the distant freight trains and cars. So maybe that’s masking any sounds from the object? Who knows, certainly I’m intrigued.

    You don’t think E.T has gotten lost and come back for a TomTom do you?

    Seen some lights in Bradford sky on 24/07/15 from 11pm onwards…something on Internet said it could be Jupiter or planets? Really cloudy night all we all saw were 2 lights doing almost spotlight show-my son describes it as a light-tower with its faint light beam going round in circle motion.Either way really strange and continued until late??? As the lights/shadows weren’t bright,nothing was evidenced on my camera phone!

    I’ve seen something similar last night around 2.15am above Bradford. It looked like a really bright star but it was moving really slowly, then eventually disappeared.

  6. Ben says:

    It’s happening again, I can see the same object from the video, a white orb, from here in Burley over what I’m guessing would be Bramley Pudsey ends.

  7. Darren says:

    I watched something lastnight that looked much the same exept the object had strands of light on the top and sides.
    Im in sth Yorks. I watched it from 10.45pm till around 11pm when it moved away.

    I live in Tuolumne county of California U.S. and I also see a bright light in the sky every night for the last month. Trying to figure out what it is, it doesn’t stay stationary like the stars, it is HUGE, and slowly moves
