A man has claimed a North Yorkshire town is a hotspot for UFO encounters and ‘alien’ craft sightings.
Russ Kellett, who lives in Filey, is documenting various incidents over the years, including his own footage of strange objects in the sky. The long-standing UFO investigator has previously claimed to have been abducted ‘at least 60 times’ from the age of 16 as well as being made to fight aliens as a ‘super soldier’.
The 58-year-old’s incredible claims include seeing alien creatures and even spotting pop star Robbie Williams aboard an alien spacecraft, Yorkshire Live reports. Mr Kellett says he believes that a ‘flying saucer’ landed in the vicinity of Irton Moor, Scarborough, not far from the GCHQ spy base, in 2010. He said the landing was witnessed by a friend.
He claims that, in 1956, a ‘flying saucer’ also landed in Loftus, a town situated to the north of the North York Moors and about 17 miles from Whitby by road. He has been working with documentary makers about his experiences and says it is clear that North Yorkshire and West Yorkshire are hotspots for this type of incident.
He has taken his own footage of incidents, among them a video of a dolphin-shaped object he saw in the sky over Filey. Some have suggested it was a helium balloon but Mr Kellett believes it was an ‘alien craft’.
In the past he has also sketched some of the alien species he has encountered, among the beings 10ft tall and bald. He told Yorkshire Live: “If it was a helium balloon you would see the tether.
“People have said they have seen other crafts in the shape of a dolphin. When I put it (the video footage) out someone said it was a balloon.”
Asked if he thought it was an alien craft, he added: “Yeah, it’s got to be.” A little further afield, in Queensbury, near Bradford, Mr Kellett filmed an object in the sky that he calls ‘flying man’.
Speaking about the footage, he says: “It’s like nothing I have ever seen in my life. It was going towards Halifax. It came down around that area. People call it the ‘flying man’.
“West Yorkshire and the east coast have got all sorts going on.” Last year he told YorkshireLive about his first encounter when he was four and living in Girlington, Bradford. He says he saw a man wearing something resembling a ‘space suit and helmet’ in the back yard of the family home in Kensington Street.
“He was walking in my garden – I could not believe it. I waved and he put his hand up. There was a silver object which I thought was a dustbin. He walked behind this silver object and the next thing it juddered and went up. I thought ‘what the heck is this.'”
He didn’t tell anyone what he had seen but has now revealed all in a new book called ‘Russell Kellett is E.T. Rider’. He says the book is the story of his life and his encounters with ‘alien craft’ and abductions by aliens.
Mr Kellett hit the headlines in 2020 when he claimed he saw singer Robbie Williams aboard a spaceship in 1999. He said the former Take That star was part of his ‘military unit’.”
According to the Daily Star, Robbie did not deny the story but said: “No comment.”
