Full Description & Details

One beautiful Sunday morning my father brought myself and my brother for a walk round our local park. He did this most Sunday mornings. I was about 12 then and my brother 11. When we got to an isolated part of the park we heard a weird sound in the distance. We stopped and wondered what it could be as no vehicles were permitted in the park. I find it difficult to describe the sound as I have nothing to compare it with. The nearest I can come to is like a clattering type sound. The sound was getting louder so we knew it was getting closer but our view of it was hidden by trees. In less than 20 seconds it appeared almost above our heads as we were at the edge of the trees. It was a disc shape, dark grey/black and appeared to be no more than 1 meter wide. We saw no windows, no lights or no smoke. It was no more than 30 feet above our heads and I estimate it was travelling at a quick walking pace. It then went over trees beside the lake. I was terrified and my father later said that I had gone as white as a ghost. My brother who was braver than I ran down to the edge of the lake to see where it had gone as it was hidden by bushes. I could see my brother and hear him shouting back to us that it had stopped over the water just a short distance from the edge. He later told me that he wanted to wade out to it to see if he could capture it to bring it home ! As he was watching it, it lowered itself down over the water and as it did so it slowly became transparent. At the same time the loud noise it was making diminished until the object had disappeared. My brother was shouting back to us that it was disappearing. When the noise stopped the only sound we could hear was the birds singing in the trees as if nothing had happened. We were all shocked at what we witnessed and talked about it the rest of the day. The only person we told was our mother when we got home. My father had been in the Royal Air Force during the war and was well used to seeing all types of aircraft but was totally baffled by this.
