A UFO, or Unidentified Flying Object, is the popular term for any aerial phenomenon that cannot immediately be identified. Most UFOs are identified on investigation as conventional objects or phenomena. The term is widely used for claimed observations of extraterrestrial spacecraft.
Kate Bush has indicated in the past that she does believe in extraterrestrial life. Also, in 1981 she actually saw a UFO during a trip in Scotland.
Kate about UFO’s
I really believe in UFOs, and I don’t see why there shouldn’t be life on other planets. We haven’t got off this planet yet, really, so how can we say if there is or isn’t. It seems unlikely that we would be the only ones. There have been so many reported that I’m sure they exist, and I really hope I see one – and a whale and a giraffe up close.

Just as it was getting dark one evening, we pulled up by a sign at the edge of the road. It told of a fort from the fifth century, B.C., the ruins of which were in the heather-thick field beyond the sign. It also mentioned a phantom battle which had supposedly taken place very near to the site. As we were about to drive away, I noticed three lights in the sky, descending in a diagonal line. Then they formed a horizontal line and remained static just below a layer of cloud. There were huge circular orange lights; and we set off in the car in hot pursuit. We thought maybe they were some kind of stadium lights, but they were too near to the clouds; and we had never seen aircraft with such big lights, nor that colour. As we turned a bend we could no longer see them, but kept our eyes pinned on the sky. A few minutes later they came into view again, and this time we could see that they were completely unattached to any form of structure on the ground; and now there were only two lights. They remained stationary until we lost them a little while later, for good. All the way back to the hotel our heads were pointed out of the windows in anticipation of another sighting, and we wondered if instead of finding Nessie on our search, we had found another strange phenomenon. What do you think? (Kate Bush Club newsletter, Issue 11, 1981)
