A Garston mother was left perplexed after spotting a bright UFO hovering over the town in the early hours of the morning.

Clare Norton made the discovery after being woken up by her hungry young baby at around 5.20am on Wednesday.

While waiting for a bottle to cool she decided to go into the back garden of Boundary Way house to have a cigarette and she spotted the stationary orb in the sky.

The mum-of-three said: "I was in the back garden having a quick cigarette and it looked like it was above Francis Combe School, but further away.

"I thought it was just a plane at first but it just stayed there and kept glowing for around 10 to 15 minutes. It was right in front of me and I thought ‘what the hell is that?’, it stayed right in front of me - I couldn’t believe it."

Ms Norton then went and got her camera to capture the mysterious object, which had a bright light in front of it.

She added: "I was shocked as I don’t believe in things like that but I have changed my mind as I have seen it.

Watford Observer:

Ms Norton watched the orb glow for around 10 to 15 minutes.

"I don’t think I am crazy, I know what I saw."

Afterwards she tended to her baby and said the light had disappeared when she looked again around 20 minutes after first seeing it.

Well, Watford's not a million miles from the Supreme Headquarters of the Alien Defence Organisation, and featured prominently in its promotional videos.

Oh wait... that was a TV show...

why are the first & second images so different from each other if they're supposed to show the same stationary object from the same angle?

I call BS.

Yes that's the moon with cloud around it. I actually do believe in other life forms in the universe but don't believe any have quite made it to earth yet.

I trust you are qualified to make a fair and honest assessment of this lady.
Very much doubt it.

It was Mars.

At 5.20am Wednesday, looking south-east from Boundary Way you would have had a good view of Mars, it would have been the brightest thing in the sky in that direction. The Unidentified Flying Object is now an identified planet.

Can you now change the headline to "Woman sees Planet.
