UFO ‘shaped like Audi R8’ seen ‘bouncing’ across sky above UK seaside town

A UFO 'shaped like an Audi R8' left Brits in a quiet seaside town baffled after it was spotted 'bouncing' in the night's sky.

Matthew Norbury captured the mysterious bright white sphere of light in the skies above Colwyn Bay in North Wales.

His footage shows it hurtling through the atmosphere before making a sudden change in direction, reports NorthWalesLive.

It is thought the light could be a fireball meteor, but Matthew said he could not explain its sudden 'bounce' and then apparent change of direction.

Matthew said: "It's the first time I've ever seen anything that looks like an Audi R8 flying through the sky."

The Astronomy Stack Exchange site said that, while meteorites can 'travel in all directions', the earth's gravity will pull them straight down towards the surface.

Sightings of fireball meteors are reportedly rare, even though several thousand meteors of fireball magnitude occur in the Earth’s atmosphere every day, according to the International Meteor Organisation.

The vast majority of these, however, happen over the oceans and uninhabited regions, or are hidden in broad daylight.

It comes after residents in another Welsh seaside town were left baffled by a mysterious screeching noise that some thought was supernatural.

People living at a Gwynedd resort in Tywyn woke up to a "weird screeching" and moaning noise.

Some residents believed the sound originated from a foreign source while others described it as "like metal being dragged".

Reports from across the town quickly spread on social media as bleary-eyed inhabitants demanded an explanation.

One person wrote: “T’was a siren!”

Another said: “To some a screech… to others a song, luring them to the sea.”

But it turned out to be caused by a defect with a rail-mounted trailer carrying new rails on a train track in the town.
