What weird things have you seen?

Children eye a model of an alien on display inside the International UFO Museum in America

Secret government files on possible spaceship sightings have been shown for the first time.

They give details of people's reports of glimpsing aliens, seeing UFOs - unidentified flying objects - and watching odd lights in the sky.

So we wondered what weird things you've seen. Do you think you've ever seen a UFO or a ghost? Or maybe a strange-looking animal?

Or maybe you've seen a weird TV programme or film?

When I looked closer I saw details such as a funnel and a number plate on the side - it was a train... a ghost train. When I asked my dad, he said that a train track used to run through the village about 100 years ago and the number of the train that used to pass through most often was the 465 - that was the exact same number that I had seen on the side of the ghost train."
