Vicky Dinsdale's sighting echoes that of police officer Alan Godfrey who saw the same thing one year earlier.
Vicky had been out walking her dogs with her grandfather in the hills above the Yorkshire town of Todmorden in 1981 when something strange appeared in the sky overhead.
"It was a sort of long, thin diamond shape and it was white initially..." she told the BBC.
"Then it went through a sequence and it kind of changed to green, red and blue. There was no sound. That was unnerving. Then it just vanished and we just stood there."
The sighting occurred just one year after another UFO encounter in the same town - that of policeman Alan Godfrey who, at around 5am on November 28th, 1980, had been nearing the end of his shift when he witnessed a large diamond-shaped object hovering above the road just ahead of him.
Estimating the unidentified craft to be approximately 20ft high and 14ft across, he attempted to radio for assistance but found to his horror that his equipment was no longer functioning.
Before he knew it, the object had disappeared and he found himself 30 yards down the road having experienced a period of around 25 minutes of missing time that he could not account for.
"He was a very down-to-earth kind of guy," said Vicky whose grandfather had spoken of Godfrey.
"He said: 'We've seen it. We know we've seen it and nobody else needs to know about it.' Immediately, I just thought that's got to be the same thing that we saw."
"It's just too much of a coincidence."
