A woman from Buckinghamshire said she ‘couldn’t believe it’ after capturing a video of a potential UFO in the skies above her town.

Pamela Simwanza, 30, is a mental health social worker who lives on Belgrave Road in Aylesbury, and while not a sceptic, she is also not someone prone to flights of fancy about visiting species from other planets.

At around 6pm yesterday (November 29), however, her incredulity was tested by the appearance of mysterious shifting lights in the skies above her home county. 

Pamela was commuting back from her workplace in Princes Risborough at rush hour when she first spotted the lights, which she initially thought must be linked to a display or stadium event.

“I didn’t think too much of it but as I kept driving, it just kept catching my eye. The lights were moving around and dipping in and out, but I could see them for most of the twenty-five-minute drive from Princes Risborough to Aylesbury. I couldn’t believe it.”

She said that while she couldn’t explain what she saw, she wouldn’t rule out the possibility of the lights indicating some kind of extra-terrestrial life.

“I hadn’t seen anything like it before and it’s difficult to explain. I didn’t feel that it was a Christmas lights display or anything because the lights were so far up and seemed very built into the sky.

“What was really weird was that when they moved you could see some sort of shape forming, like a rounded shape with lights on its sides."

Pamela caught some of what she saw on video, with one clip showing white lights moving in a rotational pattern around the sky. She can be heard saying in the background: “Oh my god, I can’t believe I actually captured this.”

Speaking back in March, Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe MBE, a mathematician and astronomer based at the University of Buckingham, told the Free Press that he thought the “concept of advanced and intelligent alien life” should be regarded as “a real possibility”.

Considering data released at the beginning of the year which indicated that Southeast England had the highest proportion of reported UFO sightings in the UK during 2022, the professor cautioned, however, that such sightings might be attributable to a charged light particle phenomenon that can allow the Northern Lights to be seen from Southern regions.

He concluded: “Science accepts that there are millions of planetary systems like ours in the universe, possibly with earth-like planets and possibly containing life.

“If life on any of these planets has evolved and advanced to a couple of stages above our own, then it is entirely reasonable to say that they might be sending their spacecrafts to explore other environments.”
