The photographs and sighting are being investigated by the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) after it received a report from an eyewitness.
The witness, who has not been named, said: "I looked up to see what I first thought was a passenger plane on fire.
"Within a second or two, I was startled because I had realised this was no plane.
"It was a dull silver-domed object with orange lights around its middle.
"It was a typical domed UFO looking craft.
"It was obvious to me that this craft was in trouble."
The witness said there was no flame or intense burning, but some sort of vapour trail being left.To read more, click here.
