Close encounter in Staffordshire could have been secret military drone
A strange aircraft spotted moving slowly and loudly across the night sky in Cannock has sparked UFO frenzy.
Hundreds of householders took to social media after first hearing a loud drone, then spotting the massive object move slowly over their homes.
Many believe that there is a very earthly explanation for a Close Encounter that has the community buzzing.
Locals in the Staffordshire town believe they saw a secret military protoype, possibly from a US aircraft carrier currently stationed off Portsmouth.
And the British UFO Research Association has not discounted claims that a drone might be behind the rash of reports.
The area has been a UFO hotbed since the early 1980s, but last week’s incident is the biggest in terms of the sheer volume of sightings. . . .
