Watch as 'huge UFO-shaped drone' shoots a green laser beam into the Milton Keynes sky
A green laser beaming into the Milton Keynes sky was caught on camera last night (Thursday, September 24) with some people comparing it to a UFO incident.
The laser was reportedly active in the Kingston area of the town at around 10pm. It is unknown who or what was responsible for it as of yet, but some people have given their version of events.
Tom Marvin, from Broughton, captured the incident on video. He said: "It first caught our attention as the beam shone through our bedroom window and it was really bright. My first thought was that it was a search light from a police helicopter but, after seeing the light shine as high into the sky as we could see, we knew it wasn’t.
"When we looked again we thought it was a huge UFO-shaped drone going up and down through the beam. This drone let off another beam which was shining in all different directions."
Westley Gilbert, from Brooklands, said he saw news about the laser on Facebook and had to go and check it out for himself.
He said: "When I went into the garden to look I realised this was no ordinary laser, so I decided to get in the car and see where it took me. It was coming from a factory in the industrial estate in Kingston. I got out of my car to have a look and couldn't believe how big this beam was, shooting straight up into the sky.
"I started filming, and then this massive drone took off. I started following the laser up into the sky, it got halfway up and started shooting lasers all over the sky. It was truly amazing."
After some research, Westley believes it was a laser test carried out by a tech company based in the Midlands.
The Open University has said it was not involved, despite reports.
Milton Keynes Council has been contacted for comment.
