Photo and footage from Alan Kingwell

Is this the moment two UFOs were caught on camera in the skies above Cornwall?

Well that's what one man thinks might have happened over Liskeard.

Scroll down to watch the clip.

Alan Kingwell was in his garden filming the clouds in time lapse at the end of August.

When he watched the footage back he noticed something rather strange in the sky - two black blobs that don't move at all.

The clouds can be seen whizzing past but the odd shapes just linger in the same spot... curious.

Alan wants to know id anyone else saw anything in the sky over the Duchy on the 30th August between 5pm and 6pm.

He said: "We were eating tea outside and the sky was so dramatic I decided to do a time lapse film of the clouds.

"I filmed for over a hour of the same bit of sky on full zoom as I just wanted the clouds in the film and not the trees in the foreground.

"On playback I noticed two dark shapes which were not moving, this was even more noticeable as the clouds were moving fast in time lapse.

"At first I assumed it was something on the lens or a fault with the camera.

"But it only happened on a certain part of the sky and at one point they disappeared behind a small cloud.

Watch the video and make your own mind up...


"The clip unfortunately is only very brief and is of very poor quality as I had it on full zoom.

"As soon as I saw the footage (which is not the best in the world I may add) I went back out with binoculars and filmed the same area of sky again, but cloud had covered the area of sky where I filmed before.

"But at one point the sky cleared for a few seconds and I could see something there through the binoculars, this unfortunately was only very brief, and not wanting to lose the area of sky in my view I quickly phoned my good lady Mags to bring out my other camera which has a better zoom.

"By this time, it had clouded in again and there was no sky to see.

"The footage shows what was hovering dead still for well over 25 mins (may have been much longer) the view is from Liskeard looking towards the Polperro coast.

"I would love to know if anyone else was looking at the clouds and spotted something.

"You can see the one on the left looks a reddish colour and the dark one on the right has the sun reflected on the right side.

"These were totally dead still with no move that all."

So what do you reckon - UFO ur no?
