‘Aliens’ and ‘Russians’ spotted in sky above Brit town leaving residents baffled

An unusual streak of black seen over the UK skyline has baffled locals.

The strange site could be seen vividly in the town of Gornal in Dudley, West Midlands, on Wednesday (January 18), with many flooding the internet with snaps of the weird phenomena.

Local Facebook groups were awash with different theories as to what it could be.

One user joked it was "Harry Kane's penalty finally coming back down" while another wrote ""Is it a bird…..is it a plane….No!! It’s Gornal Man."

Other theories included it being some kind of Russian military ploy and some reverted to the default explanation, that it was "definitely aliens."

Dudley has become an unlikely hotspot for UFO or unexplained sightings in the sky.

Most famously, the so-called "Dudley Dorito" was first spotted in the town in 2009, and then again in 2011.

It looked a weird triangle-shaped spacecraft, and instigated a wormhole of conspiracy theories.

In addition, between 2013 and 2016, West Midlands Police, which covers the Dudley area, received 12 calls reporting UFOs by residents.

Other strange goings-on this year have included bright white lights and two rapid circles, an object "letting off sparkles”, another flashing lights in the sky and many more.

Residents in West Bromwich were baffled by a bright white light over a home in the summer which was seen heading towards an old church called All Saints which dates back to the 1400s.

The resident told BlackCountryLive at the time: "Twice now we have seen this in the sky.”

Extra-terrestrials' fascination with the West Midlands remains as yet unexplained.

However, many cynics also pointed out the likelihood that this latest sighting was likely contrails from a plane which were particularly visible because of the angle of the sun.

Contrails or vapor trails are line-shaped clouds which are generated by planes when there are sudden changes in air pressure, typically at aircraft cruising altitudes several miles above the Earth's surface.
