Your calls flooded in after Pip Neal spotted a mysterious green ball in the sky over Southcote on Friday, April 7, and Vicky Chapman saw a glowing red orb over Basingstoke Road on Good Friday (Post, Wednesdays, April 19 and 26, respectively).
It’s not the first time Mr Neal has seen unexplained things in the sky. He also told us that he saw a triangle of light in the skies over Lincoln two decades ago.

Gloria Fisher, a carer from Meadow Road, Earley, called to say she and husband, Roy, a window-maker, spotted the same phenomenon, also 20 years ago, while camping in Wittering, Sussex.
She said: “We looked up in the sky and saw a triangle of white light as though joined but you could see through the middle. It was in complete formation but whether it was a Government experiment, you just don’t know.
“We haven’t really mentioned it too much to people.
“My husband, if you do see things, says it’s probably clouds or aeroplanes and the last thing you think about is UFOs but you do think: ‘Ooh, I wonder’.”
Peter Brake, 77, revealed his experiences after reading about the Good Friday sighting in the Post.
“The first one was mind-boggling, like a world just going along,” he said of his sighting of a multicoloured globe while in his Whitley Wood garden some years ago. “It wasn’t smooth, it was like in a square pattern and lit up. I didn’t know quite what to make of it.
“When it got level with me it was there one second and suddenly went away from me within two seconds.”
Then last September the retired forestry worker spied a deep red star-like object moving slowly over his Falmouth Road garden.
But perhaps the most exciting phenomenon has been by former coffee shop worker Janet Cryer, from Woodley who witnessed a bright, whooshing light roaring past her first-floor window.
She couldn’t sleep at around 1am on Tuesday, April 18, when suddenly she heard a noise “like an underground train, a roar and a whoosh at the same time” before a greeny-coloured light flew past her open-curtained window.
“Immediately I thought it was a meteorite and I was waiting for a bang,” said the 58-year-old.
“It was faster than a helicopter and nothing like an aircraft. The day after that I saw all those stories in the paper.”
Mrs Cryer, of Hanwood Close, added: “My late husband used to long to see a UFO, he used to keep all the clippings.”
