A U.K. man claims that an alien parked its UFO on top of his roof, according to a recent report.
The Bristol Post reported that the man, who was not identified, made a report that was notarized in the United Kingdom’s National Archives, which were declassified recently. The files contain around 4,400 pages, which cover reports about UFOs in the country.
The man specifically claimed that “a big alien craft landed on the top of [his] house” after the UFO was flying “very close to the witnesses’ house and then on the house,” according to files obtained by the Post.
“The craft stayed on his house for a while and then flew off,” the account reads.
Other reports in the National Archives include UFOs that were spotted near landmarks in the U.K., including Stonehenge and the Houses of Parliament.
Citing the same archives, The Guardian reported that a caller claimed to have been living with an alien in the city of Carlisle. And a Cardiff man also reportedly claimed that a UFO snatched up his car, tent, and dog while he was camping in 2007.
The U.K. shut down its UFO monitoring office three years ago and its recent declassification is the last.
David Clarke, a UFO historian, told NBC News that sightings have doubled in the U.K. in recent years. In 2008, there were more than 208 reports but by November 2009, there were 643 reports.
“That really did put a strain on the resources that the MoD had committed to this subject, and really led up to their decision to finally pull the plug on Britain’s X-Files, simply because they just didn’t have the resources to investigate these sightings, or to look at them in any detail,” Clarke told the broadcaster. “So they just tended to be filed away.”
The Ministry of Defense (MOD) said that “despite what many people think, and claim, the MOD does not have any expertise or role in respect of UFO/flying saucer matters or the question of the existence or otherwise of extraterrestrial life forms, about which it remains totally open-minded,” according to the Guardian.
The reason for its existence and monitoring of reports, the agency said, was “solely to establish whether what was seen might have some defense significance.”
A week ago, a Bracknell man, took a photo of two lights in the sky while he was on the terrace of a local pub.
“They were heading south-west at speed towards Basingstoke—quicker than any normal aircraft. They were there for less than five seconds,” Steve Lambert, the man, told GetReading.com.
