Frome dweller John Wilson was making food in his kitchen when he spotted a mysterious light hovering in the sky.
The bright white light, which seems to sporadically pulsate and drift slightly across the night sky, amazed Mr Wilson, who quickly went to alert his young son and grab his camera.
The 44-year-old, who works in computing, told Express.co.uk that the mysterious object was completely silent.
He added that he racked his brain to come up with a logical conclusion, before submitting to the idea that it may be of extra-terrestrial origin.
Mr Wilson said: “I looked out the window and thought ‘that light shouldn’t be there’.
“We get used to whats flying around. We’ve got a hospitals in the town, sometimes you get helicopters that fly there, so I know what’s a helicopter, what’s a plane, I know what a flare looks like and I know what a lantern looks like.
“Flares, which people do let off sometimes in the town, either go upwards or off with the wind current and they flicker.
“Then it started to move after being stationary for about five minutes.
“If it was a plane, then the way the light was facing would have looked differently as it moved across the sky. But the light was facing towards me as it moved horizontally across the sky.”
Mr Wilson said that he scanned the local media to see if anyone else had spotted it but to no avail.
He added that he spoke to military personnel that he knew who confirmed that the UFO did not belong to the army.
However, this is not the first time that he has spotted something like this. In fact, he says that he has had “15 amazing encounters”.
Mr Wilson, who describes himself as an “everyday guy”, continued: “The most spectacular sighting that I’ve ever had was actually in Wiltshire. But I didn’t have the technology available to film it then.
“There was an object on the ground and it lifted off the ground for a couple of metres, flew over the road towards us on this track where we were, it doubled in size in front of our very eyes. It was only about 20 metres away. It made no noise.
“It moved along horizontally, stopped again and then shot off into the sky. We felt like it was watching us as much as we were watching us.”
As for why he has spotted more UFOs than the average person, he says that he keeps an eye on the sky.
He said: “Most people if you watch them are walking along, looking at their mobile phones. People who live in cities don’t see much because of the light pollution.
“I think I see these things because I get out there a lot more.”
