A PROFESSIONAL UFO spotter has captured pictures of his first UFO of 2017.

John Mooner, from Newton Abbot, who calls himself the chief photographer for World UFO Photos, snapped the strange object when he was 'sky watching' on Monday at around 1.30pm.

Mr Mooner said: "I decided to go out sky watching and I had my trusty Nikon P900 camera at the ready.

"After about an hour of sky watching I spotted a faint contrail and began to zoom in.

"At a higher magnification I could clearly see that this contrail was not coming from a plane, but was in fact coming from a round object that appeared to be glowing.

"The round glowing object was at a very high altitude and I doubt that many people would be able to see this without a telephoto lens or a pair of high zoom binoculars.

"The object was moving at a high rate of speed across the sky and I had real trouble stabilizing it in the camera's viewfinder.

"I began taking photographs of this strange object and I managed to take six photographs that show the movement of this object."

Mr Mooner, who call himself the chief photographer for World UFO Photos, said it was a good start to the year for UFO spotters.

"This is my first UFO photographs of 2017 and I can't wait to photograph more UFOs over Devon," he added.
