UFO Sighting Report


December, 2011


England, United Kingdom


A bright orange light in the sky which appeared and disappeared and "flickered" in a deliberate manner.

Date Reported:

4/17/2012 3:15:01 PM

Sighting Time: 




No. of Witnesses: 



About 4 minutes.

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

It looked like a bright orange "spotlight" in the sky.

Size of Object(s)

Relative size was pretty small, about 1/2 a cm wide from our vantage point, if that. Close up, it was probably a lot bigger.

Description of Area / Surroundings

It's a rural area, with a moderately busy road running through it. It's mostly fields, farms and country roads around where the object was. There is a few power plants quite close to the area.

Full Description & Details

I was in the passenger seat of a car and we were driving towards a main road. As, we approached the road end, I saw it out the corner of my eye, over to the right of my view. It could be seen in the sky above a nearby hilltop. I wondered at first if it was a star or an aircraft. It stayed there for a few seconds and then it just disappeared. Then a few seconds later, it blinked on again. Then off. Then it flicked on and off in rapid succession for a few seconds. Very strange. I reached for my camera, but I hesitated to take a shot, not certain if I would be able to get a good shot of it(my camera doesn't have a very good zoom and being in a moving vehicle didn't help matters). I also had trouble keeping it in sight at times, what with it disappearing now and again and trees blocking my view. Unluckily for me, by the time I'd really gotten ready to take a shot, I'd lost sight of the object! Anyway, it was very strange. I've never seen anything in the night sky that behaved like this thing did before.

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

It could have been some sort of aircraft or radio-controlled gadget, but I don't know what would produce that sort of "light display".

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I had a fairly active interest in UFOs before the sighting, I had even visited this website a few times! I've since been studying the subject of UFOs a lot more.

Other Comments

I accept that it wasn't necessarily an alien spacecraft that I saw, I'm not sure what it was. I decided that it would be best to report it to a site like this, "just in case".
