Multiple Sightings Of UFO Reported In Southern England

Beginning last Tuesday, residents in Portsmouth (nicknamed Pompey), England reported seeing a strange, saucer-shaped object flying through the sky.

Word spread, using the designated hashtag #pompeyufo.

The reports continued on Wednesday, and Lewis Rogers (26), of The Seagulls, Lee-on-the-Solent, took this photograph while visiting a friend from the area:

That same afternoon, Twitter user Ladyloki tweeted a different picture of the same object:

Portsmouths local paper Portsmouth News reported on the sightings on Friday, September 19th. (Online text available here.)

The paper quotes Johnny Blackwell, 23, who says, I dont believe in UFOs, but when I saw this I didnt know what it was. It didnt look like a cloud, and it was moving very fast. 

Laura Young, a spokesperson for The Met Office (The U.K.s national weather service), told the News: After looking at the images, I can say the object is nothing to do with the weather. It is not meteorological and is not a cloud. 

While the object may be unidentifiable at this time, other Portsmouth residents have some theories:
