A spooked mum-of-two feared aliens were invading when she photographed a huge UFO in the sky – which turned out to be a NASA rocket.
Jayne Dickinson (47) had traveled to Northumberland to photograph the Northern Lights and spotted the unusual aircraft.
Dramatic photos show the rocket-shaped angel soaring through the night sky at 10.30 on Monday.
The postie, from Linton, Morpeth, Northumberland, said: “I’d gone in search of the Northern Lights but I couldn’t see any.
“I was walking back to my car when I suddenly saw this incredibly bright shape soaring up in the sky.
“It was amazing and grabbed my camera and started taking pictures of it. I must admit I thought the aliens were landing.
“The shape of it was like an angel and it was bright white.
“As soon as I got home I checked what it could have been and realised it was the NASA Landsat-9 satellite which had launched in California.
“It was a pretty great feeling to see it from the other side of the world.”
Elsewhere in the UK, stargazers have claimed a massive cone-shaped ” UFO ” was spotted hovering in the sky above a Brit city.
Residents from East Yorkshire and Hull claimed to have seen the same aerial phenomenon on Monday, September 27th. This was the launch night for the Atlas V rocket at Vandenberg Space Force Base.
The Atlas V rocket carried NASA’s most powerful Earth-imaging satellite Landsat 9 to a sun-synchronous orbit. This allowed scientists to compare images at different times and track the changes over time.
The footage was captured by stunned locals and shows a bright, clear object with a conical form.

The UFO hangs in the sky for a while before moving in a straight line.
Baffled locals told Hull Live : “It was a huge white triangle in the sky no noise at all, no planes showing up on the flight tracker.
“It has to be something in orbit but was something I’ve never seen before, and to say how high it was the projected light must have been miles wide.”
