A BRIGHT orange light in the sky above Brixham caught the eye of resident Anthony Sherwood who is confident that what he witnessed was a UFO.
He watched the illuminated 'disc' from his living room window in Summer Lane around 9.30pm on Saturday.
After seeing it fly in a straight line about half-a-mile above the rooftops, Anthony stood in awe as the object headed up into the skies at a 60-degree angle before vanishing into the clouds.
"I thought at first it was an incredibly bright star but it was so bright it couldn't have been," he explained.
"Then I saw it moving and I thought it was something different. It had a constant orange glow and it wasn't flashing.
"It was very bright and above Southdown Hills.
"It was going away from me and was moving quite slowly. It was hard to tell how big it was because there was nothing to compare it with.
"I was expecting it to zoom off at any second but it just went at a steady speed.
"When I first saw it, it was pretty low above the rooftops.
"Then it stopped on its trajectory and headed up into the sky in a straight line. It turned black, then wobbled a bit when it went into the clouds and disappeared.
"It was as if it was on some sort of course."
He added: "It was disc like and raised up in the middle. It looked like it was on its side with the brightness underneath and a glint on the side.
"It was definitely an unidentified object."
Anthony, 44, an acrylic fabricator for Luminati in Ivybridge, watched the strange sight for about five minutes with his 12-year-old daughter Jasmine.
"I was having a cigarette out the window and I was looking around and it caught my eye because it was so bright," he said.
"I was going to look for my telescope, but my camera was right on the windowsill so I took a picture instead.
"My daughter was amazed. It freaked her out a bit because she started thinking about aliens.
"It's my first sighting of anything like this and I'm surprised other people haven't reported seeing it.
"There's Government things and stuff we don't know about, I don't necessarily think it was aliens but I like to keep an open mind."
