Astonishing 100 ft long ufo craft seen by astronomer over Exeter UK

This is very big news:

Amateur astronomer Lee Betts, 29, believes it could be visitors from outer space – or that the sighting is at least unexplained.

He saw the red cigar-shaped object hovering around 1,000ft off the ground four miles away, towards Thorverton, late on Monday night:

"I couldn't believe it at first," he said.
"The shape was about 100ft long and there were four lights coming from it initially.
"I saw it at the back of my house, which faces Thorverton, so I got my telescope set up and magnified the image 20 times and then took this picture. All this happened at around 8.45pm and it was still there an hour later.
"I've never seen anything like this before – it's unexplained.
"The shape moved slowly across the skyline and as I looked through my telescope it seemed to pivot on its central axis. It was very strange.
"It then sort of rolled around and a bright light appeared at one end of the shape.
Then, without warning, a sudden flash of light like a shooting star went across the sky."

Nick Pope calls for MOD to investigate:

The shape moved slowly and it seemed to pivot on a central axis. Then, without warning, a sudden flash of light like a shooting star went across the sky.

"It was very strange. I have been an amateur astronomer for the past three years and I've never seen anything like it before. It's unexplained."
UFO expert Nick Pope said: "It's very rare for astronomers to report UFO sightings. They're familiar with the night sky, so when they say they've seen something mysterious, you can take it to the bank.
"This is a fascinating image. If the object is as big as suggested it may have been tracked on radar."


Note i have reported before on many Ufo sightings near Exeter - why there? - cause its near the french channel:

DISCLOSURE IS NEAR. There's no way it can stop now. NASA has finally declared, after Chandra found out, that there is water on the Moon. Mars also. So, there is no way hiding things. Thanks for the postings.

Being an astronomer he/she must be a little tech minded so why take such a bad photo?
I can't make anything out from this photo, for all i know or see in this photo he could have knocked the telescope and photographed a street light.
