A UFO spotted over Somerset, England, is likely to be a man-made aircraft.

Jeremy Le Fevre of Frome, Somerset, captured this video on August 19th of an object that appears to be several glowing orange balls followed by a sparkling white light.  The object performed aerial acrobatics for about a minute in the video before flying away.

“I had never seen anything like it before," Le Fevre said.  "It really caught my eye. It went on for quite some time before flying off into the distance towards Longleat."

“It was emitting green and red colours. It looked to me like it could have been fireworks attached to a drone. It’s still very much unidentified though.”

Le Fevre captured the object performing amazing aerial maneuvers.

Earlier this year, on May 29th, a similar video was shot over the same area.

That object was eventually identified as a stunt plane belonging to nearby aerial acrobatics group AeroSparx.  The group uses fireworks attached to the wings of stunt planes to create stunning aerial light shows.

This could very well provide an explanation for the video taken by Le Fevre, although at this time the object remains unexplained.
