Sasha Shaker used his iPad to record footage of a strange glowing sphere as it danced across the sky.
Sasha and his wife Carly had been returning home from the cinema when they noticed something unusual in the sky over Wincheap. The glowing orb-like object seemed to move across the sky in an unusual fashion, looping back on itself in a feat of impressive aerial gymnastics.
After watching it for a few minutes Sasha went in to the house and fetched his iPad so that he could start recording it.
"It was making no noise and a couple of times moved really quickly from left to right, which made us think it wasn't a remote controlled plane," he said. "It was pretty much your archetypal UFO; circular, silent and changing colour between blue, red and green. We didn't know what it could be."
The couple continued to watch the object for around half an hour and it was still visible in the sky when they went to bed. Neither of them could determine what it was and the footage has since been posted online in the hope that eagle-eyed viewers may be able to shed some light on the mystery.
