Watch the moment Birmingham doctor ‘captures UFO’ on camera

Dr Mohamed Salama captured the footage on Sunday night (24 July)

A doctor from Harborne believes he has captured a UFO on camera after spotting two mysterious balls of light floating in the skies above his home.

Dr Mohamed Salama, 34, couldn’t believe his eyes when he noticed the pair of strange bright circles over Harborne, Birmingham on Sunday night (24 July). Amazing mobile phone footage shows the orbs moving apart before one of them quickly rotates and appears to shoot off at high speed.

Dr Salama, who says he did not believe in UFOs until the sighting, now reckons he may have captured an extraterrestrial visitor from outer space. The married dad-of-two says the lights could not have been a plane, star, drone or laser because of the pace they moved at and the way they changed direction.

These images were captured by the doctor

He filmed the 38-second footage on his Samsung at around 10.30pm from outside his city suburb home while he took out his bins ready for collection. He said: “I had just been taking the bins out as I normally do ready for the following morning when something just caught my eye flashing in the night sky.

‘I was shocked’

“I do photography so I often look up to see if there’s anything interesting there but I’m usually just looking for the moon or 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, drone, laser or star because of how fast it moved and the way it manoeuvred in different directions. It was high above the clouds and seemed to shoot to the horizon in a matter of seconds. It was rather incredible really.

Dr Mohammed Salama, 34, said he couldn’t believe his eyes when he noticed the pair of strange bright circles in Harborne

“At first it was just rotating and wasn’t going in a straight line so I thought that was unusual and got my Samsung mobile phone out to begin recording. The brightness of them was quite remarkable too and that was something else which made me think this could be a UFO.

“I have never believed in them until now. It was such a strange experience and I really think this could be a UFO. It was truly bizarre and left me pretty baffled being a man from a science background.”
