The North West Evening Mail reported this on Saturday 29th May 1993.
Mystery surrounds sightings at Roa Island of a UFO over the Furness coastline.
Reports of an unidentified flying object low in the sky yesterday morning and late last night are so far unexplained.
Susan Allen, who runs the Bo'sun's Cabin cafe at ROA Island, said she saw two bright lights low on the horizon around 10pm last night. "I thought it was a ship's mast but the lights were very bright and higher than usual," she said.
Jets from RAF Anglesey have not been in the area for some weeks although up to 40 fighter planes from across the country were taking part in an exercise earlier this week.
Flying officer Bob Bushby at RAF Carlisle said the sightings may be attributed to low cloud and hazy weather.
Maybe Aurora on the loose again eh!. Bill G7LKU
