London, August 19 (ANI): A leading UFO expert has claimed that there may be as many as 12 genuine sightings every year in British skies.
Nick Pope, a former UFO investigator for the Ministry of Defence, said that some of the 200-300 sightings reported every year were a genuine mystery.
It followed Richard Deakin, head of British Air Traffic Control, who said that on average one unexplained UFO is reported from control towers every month.
Most of the reports turned out to be misidentification of aircraft lights, weather balloons, meteors and satellites, the Daily Express quoted Pope as saying on BBC Radio 4's 'Today.'
It did leave us with one or two a month we found genuinely quite interesting.
Of course, our mindset is it's probably more likely to be Russian than Martian, he added. (ANI)
