Yorkshire appears to be a hot-bed for UFO encounters with hundreds reported in the past 20 years alone, it has been said.
That number seems to be rising with more and more people coming forward to talk of their unearthly sky-gazing experiences, according to YorkshireLive.
The county could be the UK's go-to place for potential extra terrestrial sightings, with the last claim coming just weeks ago.
A "large orange glowing ball of light" was spotted in Otley, west Yorkshire, late this summer and it's the latest in a long line of reports that have been officially recorded.
In just March and April 2020 alone there were 192 UFO sighting recorded in the UK – up 200 per cent from 2019.
A larger than normal number of UFO encounters have been reported in Yorkshire this year
Sightings of peculiar-looking lights in Yorkshire are on the increase and local UFO and paranormal specialists have a theories as to why the mysterious objects like the area so much.
In September, a strange triangular light moves across the night sky over Kingston-upon-Hull in Humberside.
Paranormal investigator, Brian from Exploring The Unknown, thinks he knows why Yorkshire has many of the UK's reports are in the same area.
He says he has accidentally stumbled across UFOs numerous times in his efforts to explore abandoned buildings for spiritual answers.

He said: “They’re drawn to Yorkshire due to the peak we are at height-wise in comparison with other parts of the country. Plus, our wide-open spaces and old abandoned, disused military bases.
"There are 100s of abandoned bases, bunkers, RAF flight tracks and all sorts. A lot of these locations aren't fully known by people as they are well hidden.
“Primarily these locations are used by urban explorers or paranormal enthusiasts for videos, or those who celebrate the history and believe in UFOs. They’re drawn to those places for those reasons.
A paranormal specialist has a theories as to why the mysterious lights like Yorkshire
“One location I was at a few weeks ago, we had viewed four UFOs. We knew they weren’t commercial flights because they were flying in the same path directly next to each other. And they definitely weren’t military because of the lack of noise. They were silent.”
He added, "I felt like I was been watched."
