The group also holds the largest database of current UFO sightings reported in the UK, of which we have details of 412 sightings reported in 2021.

Speaking to YEP, Ash revealed that Yorkshire as a region accounted for 63 reports, the second highest in the UK behind the North West.

Their data is drawn from UFO reports made to various organizations, including UFOIdentified, MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) and BUFORA (British UFO Network).

In Leeds, seven sightings were made in 2021 according to the group.

These include a sighting in June where two thin black curved elongated triangles, flying above nearby houses and then stopping in the air were reported.

In November, a dark craft with nine V-shaped lights flying silently and slowly overhead was also spotted by a Leeds resident.

The Royal Air Force was responsible for handling and recording all UFO reports until 2009 – due to “lack of evidence of a threat”.
