|UFO lights over Liverpool. Is it alien activity? Watch the video below and decide for yourself|
April 19, 2016 - LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND - Confused Twitter users have taken to social media after strange lights were spotted in the sky across the city - with some even suggesting it might be alien activity.
Reportings of strange flashing lights seen from areas including Bootle , Anfield and Kirkby have left Liverpool residents confused - with some suggesting it could even be extra terrestrials.
A number of ECHO readers messaged us on Facebook , tweeted and even called the office to ask for an explanation of the strange goings on - but left us scratching our heads at the question.
The lights have also been captured on film, which shows strange flashing lights in the clouds.
Stephen Carrison said: "Why lights in sky above Bootle and Walton , zigzagging about.. what is it?"
Nikita Odonoghue suggested it may be extra terrestrial activity, adding: "What are these ahaha spaceships invading." alongside a picture and an alien face emoji.
@SaintMikethe1st also thought it may be paranormal activity: "Anything on in town? Three mad lights on the clouds, might be UFOs. [sic]"
However @UKEFC has a slightly more sensible explanation, tweeting: "3 weird lights in the sky in the vicinity of the racecourse. Cross crossing spotlights on the clouds - where from?"
