He was at his friend’s house in Prescot when they noticed a weird green object in the night sky.

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, spotted the flying ‘saucer’ on August 7, around 2.45 am. He said the experience has made him a believer of extraterrestrial life.

He told the Liverpool Echo: ‘Me and my friend were at her house in Prescot when we heard a loud noise outside, like an aeroplane, so we went to look out of the window and we saw the saucer.

‘It was green and it looked just like a flying saucer, like the sweets.

‘It was only there for a few seconds and then it flew up into the clouds and went in the South-East direction, towards Huyton and Halewood,’ he said.

His friend tried to rush to take a picture of the flying object but it quickly disappeared and he was left with odd pictures.

The pair tried to find anything in the house to explain the green saucer, like a tv or a computer glare, but were left ‘puzzled’.

‘We have no idea what it was, we thought it might be a reflection of something in the room, but we checked everything and there was no screens on or anything like that, we were left really puzzled,’ he said.
