Witness, Mr Hindley, was staying at a friend's house in Middleton, Manchester, on November 7 when he woke at around 10am.
After getting up he recalls feeling a 'pulling sensation' that led him to look up into the sky where he spotted the paranormal-looking shape drifting over the Pennines around two miles away.
Standing by the window on the third floor of the maisonette he took a picture using his mobile phone.
Mr Hindley said: 'I just got up from the sofa and I felt this pull to take a picture out the window there and then. Something drew me to the window.
'Two days after I remembered the feeling I had. It was like that pull I had before.
'Normally when you take a photo there is no emotion, so I remembered that feeling I had - and so I thought I would take a look at the photo. It had it again when I looked at the photo.
He added: 'It was like a magnetic pull - a lunar pull. I felt the same pull at when I took the picture
'I am a rational man. I have never felt that feeling before. With the feeling I had and what it looks like, I don't think it was a Chinook helicopter.
'I definitely think it could have been a UFO. I think people more people are realising that we are not the only people floating around the vicinity.
'I mean the photo shows the lights shining through the clouds. I really don't think it is a reflection - look at the saucer-shaped object and the lights and the two lines coming out of the bottom.' end of statement.
The object - which is oval shaped with lights emanating from it - remained in the same position in the sky for half an hour before disappearing.
at BEAMS, we have studied this photograph and are not convinced that it
is a 'reflection'.
