Mysterious UFO Sculpture Lights Up at Night


Created as one of several 21st century sculptures aimed to attract visitors to the Lancashire countryside, Halo looks like an unimpressive heap of steel during the day and an awesomely mysterious UFO at night. The 18-meter diameter steel lattice structure is supported on a tripod that's five-meters above the ground. When the sun sets, the sculpture lights up and appears to hover over the ground. The otherworldly glow, which can be seen from miles around, is created by low-energy blue LEDs that are powered by an adjacent wind turbine.

Designed by John Kennedy of LandLab, Halo has become a must-visit structure, especially for those photographers who like to pretend their witnessing an actual UFO.
