Resident Mark Rigg contacted our sister paper the Filey Mercury after capturing this image of an unusual orange glow flying above the town.
Mr Rigg said the light appeared just after 9pm and caused great interest amongst his family who were convinced it was a UFO.
Mr Rigg, of Seadale Terrace, said he didn't believe the object was an aeroplane or helicopter because there were no sounds or flashing lights coming from it.
He said: "The light moved very fast then slowed right down to a standstill, so we went outside to get a clearer look.
"The light stood still then it seemed to fade then became clear again and in a split second it was gone.
"I have seen these bright lights before but this is the first time I have managed to catch it on camera.
"To the eye it appeared to be an orange spherical shape but on the photo it appears to be a triangular shape and when you look closer you can clearly see the triangular shape with an orange aura and a bright yellow light on the bottom left corner."
