A Harborne doctor believes he filmed a UFO after spotting two mysterious balls of light floating in the sky above his house.

Dr Mohamed Salama, 34, couldn’t believe his eyes when he noticed the pair of strange light circles above Harborne, Birmingham on Sunday evening (July 24). Stunning cell phone footage shows the orbs separating before one of them spins rapidly and appears to fly away at high speed.

Dr Salama, who says he did not believe in UFOs until the sighting, now believes he may have captured an alien visitor from space. The married father of two says the lights couldn’t be a plane, star, drone or laser because of how fast they were moving and how they changed direction.

These images were captured by the doctor

He filmed the 38-second footage on his Samsung at around 10:30 p.m. from outside his suburban home as he took out his bins ready to be collected. He said: “I had just taken out the trash as I normally do, ready for the next morning, when something caught my eye in the night sky.

‘I was shocked’

“I do photography, so I often look up to see if there’s anything interesting out there, but I’m usually just looking for the moon or the stars. So I was shocked to see these two balls of light flying very quickly in different directions. I have never seen anything like it before. I don’t think it was a plane, a drone, a laser or a star because of how fast it was moving and how it maneuvered in different directions. It was high above the clouds and seemed to shoot over the horizon in seconds. It was really amazing.

“At first it was just spinning and not going straight, so I thought that was unusual and pulled out my Samsung cell phone to start recording. Their brightness was also quite remarkable and that’s another thing that made me think it might be a UFO.

“I never believed it until now. It was such a strange experience and I really think it could be a UFO. It was really weird and it left me quite baffled to be a man from of scientific training.
