The paper quotes Johnny Blackwell, 23, who says, “I don’t believe in UFOs, but when I saw this I didn't know what it was. It didn't look like a cloud, and it was moving very fast.”

Laura Young, a spokesperson for The Met Office (The U.K.'s national weather service), told the News: “After looking at the images, I can say the object is nothing to do with the weather. It is not meteorological and is not a cloud.”

While the object may be unidentifiable at this time, other Portsmouth residents have some theories:
