Did this family spot a UFO in Lincoln?

This story is over

A Lincoln family are searching for answers after filming an unidentified flying object above the Birchwood area of Lincoln.

Gail Phillips and her husband were looking out for the International Space Station at around 10.30pm on June 5, from their home off Birchwood Avenue, when they spotted the luminous object darting across the sky.

She said: “We saw the Space Station and then saw the other light hovering. We watched it hover back and forth for about 30 seconds before we started recording it.

“We thought maybe it was someone with a remote helicopter but then why would anyone have it out in the dark?

“I’m not really sure what it could have been. When it went backwards I thought that was out of the ordinary.”
