UFO Sighting Report


March, 4, 2006


King's Lynn, Norfolk, United Kingdom


A large, bright, round object which was in the sky over west Norfolk for at least five minutes. I did not see it move. I took my eyes off it for a few seconds, so that I could remove my camera from a pocket, when I looked up again it was gone.

Sighting Time: 




No. of Witnesses: 



Five minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

The object was round, a perfect circle of bright light. The colour was similar to a cars headlights, a very bright white yet it was not the colour of a white piece of paper. The object reminded me of a light seen on a lighthouse.

Size of Object(s)

It seemed large, the relative size seemed about five cm. It looked larger than an aeroplane but much smaller than the moon. The height was definitely the same as the width - 30m, maybe it was considerably larger than this, 100m perhaps. While it was present I found it nearly impossible to estimate the size in figures. Even as I sit and write I am finding it hard to put an exact figure on its size.

Description of Area / Surroundings

A rural area on the old A17 near Jubilee Bank in Clenchwarton. There is a sewage works a few miles away. A power station is a few miles away in Saddlebow. RAF Holbeach and RAF Marham are nearby military sites. There is also a Tail Sluice at Saddlebow.

Full Description & Details

I was returning from my swim session in King's Lynn. I cycled along my usual route home and as I approached Clenchwarton I heard a voice calling to me. "look over here", "look up here" is what I think he said but I cannot remember the exact words but someone definitely told me to look. There was not a pedestrian or cyclist in sight, only cars.

The voice was inside my head not audible. I am certain I did not imagine it. Immediately I looked to my right as I cycled and saw a object in the sky. My first impression was a headlamp had been placed in the sky. The sky was clear near the object. I quickly realized it was a UFO so I decided to stop and take a photograph. It was not safe to stop so I cycled a few more metres, keeping one eye on the road and the other on the object, I stopped at the roadside and placed the cycle on the grass and removed my gloves. The bright object remained motionless. It seemed low in the sky but I have seen fast jets fly past much lower.

I stood at the roadside looking at the UFO, I wanted to take a photograph but I stood there looking at it. Maybe I was in awe at the sight but I wondered if something was controlling me, preventing me from reaching for my camera. After a few minutes I attempt to remove my camera from my pocket. It was difficult to do this without looking so I took my eyes off the object, got my camera out, looked up to find the object had left without making a sound. I saw purple blotches in front of my eyes which I think were a result of the light emitting from the UFO.

I took two photographs as I wanted to comfirm the purple blotches were not real. As expected the purple blotches did not appear on the image. Secondly the photograph provodes information about the sky, level of light, date and time. I looked into the sky for a few minutes hoping it would return. It did not so I put my camera away, donned my gloves and continued my journey home.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

No. Planets do not vanish into thin air or fly away while one is removing a camera from a coat pocket. It was not the moon. It definitely was not an animal, aeroplane or a cloud. I cannot believe it was a man made object as it was so bright and large. It was far too low in the sky to be a satellite.

Witness Background

I will tell you a little about my background. I have an electrical qualification. I have worked as a painter and decorator at RAF Marham. I worked in the barracks, Officer's Mess, the married quarters, hangars and on an air traffic control tower.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

This was my second sighting. I believe there are aliens out there. I had seen a few web pages and read a book called Abducted by Ann Andrews and Jean Ritchie. I am reading The World's Greatest UFO & Alien Encounters at the moment.

Other Comments

I am certain it was an alien starship. I wonder if it was performing an experiment or some kind of research.
