RESIDENT Neil Hutchinson had an illuminating extra-terrestrial experience as he walked back to his Cala Millor home late on Saturday night.
Neil was walking along the resort's sea front with friends Ray Hutchinson and his girlfriend Anne-Marie when the trio noticed a bright light in the sky and originally thought it was a jet heading in to land at Palma airport.
The brightly-lit object moved closer towards them and Neil became suspicious of its silent progress across the dark night sky. Unlike a jet, there was no engine noise. I got a couple of shots on my phone but I didn't know what I was watching until I uploaded the pictures on to my computer, he explained. It seemed to change direction before completely disappearing, added Neil, who runs the town's Get Stuffed bar.
