Full Description & Details
At approximately 18.30 I was watching youths playing football close to a busy road junction that I live on. My wife and I were stood in our living room window inside the house, It faces South East. She said ''What's that ?'' and drew my attention to an object that had come from the south, travelling north at approx. 20 degrees above the horizon. It seemed to change shape as it flew, or, revolved on it's vertical axis. To the naked eye, it had no colour, just looked black but I got my camera from a back room and went outside to take a photo. The object remained stationary for a short while whilst revolving before heading east south east ascending to approx. thirty degrees. By this time it was not visible to the naked eye. However, I continued to photograph the area of sky where it was last seen. After downloading the images onto my computer, I enlarged the photo's to find the images that I have sent to you. When I told an elderly neighbour who lives across the road from me , he said that he had seen an object which he described identically, on the evening of the 25th (the day before my sighting).On review of the photo's I can see a second object following the same course and have caught it stationary in the same place as the first within a few minutes. There are two other objects in frame but I cannot tell what they are. During the sighting there was at least one bird which seemed to be worried and flew away from the object.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
It seemed to be controlled but I cant identify it as natural but would find hard to believe it was man made.
I am now a careworker, I share my home, with vulnerable adults, people with learning difficulties or disabilities. I have an education in engineering and design and I have had an aviation related career.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I keep an open mind on this subject and tend to err on the sceptical side when reasoning. I am interested in science and try to keep abreast of developments. I am also aware of most UFO groups. I am unbiased when looking at these occurrences.
