A really strange multi-colored, round, transparent object was seen and photographed hovering over the UK back in 2012. The witness has only just come forward with photo and testimony (MUFON case 81266).
I was in Manchester town centre with my brother. we were driving through the 'northern quarter' when I saw a ball of different coloured lights hovering at approx 30-50 feet away to my left. I said to my brother to stop the car and I got my phone out to take a photo. My brother only saw the object very briefly. There was a car behind beeping so I said for us to turn left and to drive down the road it was on. We turned left and accidentally passed the road we should have turned so I said to stop. We looked down the road the object was on and the object had dissapeared. We were in shock. I took out my phone and we saw that I had captured the object quite clearly. I cannot explain what I had seen and when I show people they can't understand it. The object can be described more detailed by saying it was a hollow ball made up of round downturned discs with vivid colors on the outside. I could see through into the hollow. The pictures will show this. To me the object was between 3 and 8 foot in size and seemed to be hovering over a nearby car. This can be seen on the photo. If you can help to explain what I saw that would be great.
Could this be a balloon or something fairly explanabile, or is this a still yet-to-be-identified flying object? Have you ever seen anything like this?
