In 1967, Knowsley and parts of Liverpool were hit by a wave of UFOs, and the first major – flap (UFO jargon for an unusually high concentration of sightings in a given area within a short period of time) took place in Huyton in August.
At 3 a.m. on an August morning in 1967, a nine-year-old child named Andrea was awakened from her sleep by a strange humming sound.
Andrea went and woke her mother, and the girl’s mother noticed that the noise was coming from outside.
She pulled back the curtains and saw a bright green object floating on the roof. Andrea’s mother later described the UFO in a newspaper article as a humming roof.
