A ‘Tic Tac-shaped’ UFO with ‘unusual protrusions’ sticking out the bottom of it was reportedly seen hovering over Hull during the evening rush hour last week.

Chris Evers, 59, said he was told the craft had been seen flying over the city at around 5.30pm on Tuesday, February 25.

Mr Evers has been a lifelong follower of UFOs and other unexplained entities and set up the Hull UFO Society in the 1990s.

He also runs the Outer Limits magazine, an ‘e-zine’ released online to readers around the world, and was booked to speak at the Research and Witness Convention (RAWCON) 2020 at Princes Quay Shopping Centre this weekend.

Mr Evers said: “I got a report through to me on Friday about a UFO seen over Hull.

“It was a large Tic Tac-shaped craft or device flying over the city at around 5.30pm, so it was during rush hour and apparently a lot of people saw it.

“It was flying upright, not horizontally, and there were two unusual protrusions at the bottom of the craft.

“I’ve been told people took photos of it but I haven’t seen any.”

He hopes that by speaking out about it, people who may have seen the object will come forward with pictures or other evidence to help get to the bottom of what it might have been.

He said he also planned to discuss the sighting at the convention.

Mr Evers’ interest in UFOs was first sparked when he saw “something strange” flying over the city when he was just 14.

“I’ve been interested in the subject since 1974 – and that’s older than my socks,” he said.

“I’ve had an avid interest for a number of years now.

“In the 1990s I set up the Hull UFO society and my Outer Limits magazine has been going for four years this April.”

He said another of his most memorable sightings came when he was ‘sky watching’ with friends near Brough.

“We were looking South over the Humber and a light came down over the hills towards the river. We watched it go right towards Goole and Snaith, we couldn’t tell how big it was,” he said.

“Then it went under the Humber Bridge and split into two.

“And for that experience and others I’m still waiting for an explanation.”

Now Mr Evers has said he describes himself as a “sceptical believer“.

“Even NASA say there’s 4,000 solar planets they’ve found in the past 20 years and that shows that we’re not just something strange in our solar system, but that it’s a regular feature of other systems,” he said.

“We’ve not found one we can communicate with yet but it will happen one day.”
