A Lincoln couple have confirmed they also saw the strange object which was spotted in the sky above Lincoln and captured on video.
A set of five lights in the shape of a pentagon have been recorded above the city at around 7:30pm on April 16.
The video was taken in uphill Lincoln in the direction of Lincoln Cathedral.
The person who took the video claimed they were absolutely not Chinese lanterns and has labelled the phenomenon a UFO.
Adrian and Karen Everest of Newark Road Lincoln confirmed they saw something in the sky at the same time the video was taken.
Mr Everest said: “I was sat in my front room looking at the clouds on Wednesday night around 7.30.
“I saw something metallic in the sky and I watched it not move for about 15 or 20 minutes.
"When the cloud began to disappear I thought I’d see it more clearly but it disappeared.
“There was no vapour trail and it didn’t move. It couldn’t have been a plane. I don’t know what it was. I’ve never seen anything like it.
"I don't know if it was the same thing that's on the video but it was at the same time.”
Mrs Everest was watching TV at the time and asked Adrian what he was looking at. He pointed at a TV aerial of another house across the street and told her to look up.
She also saw the “silver dot” in the sky.
“I looked where he pointed out and I saw it too a silver dot. It stayed still and didn’t move and there was no vapour trail like you’d see from a plane," said Karen.
“When the cloud moved it disappeared. Completely disappeared and we didn’t see it again. I don’t know what it was but I don’t think it was a plane.
“It was metallic silver with the sun’s rays shining on it.”
