Full Description & Details

Saturday October 12th - 22:15 - M3

I saw something that sounds very similar to some previously recorded observations earlier on tonight.

My wife & I were heading north on the M3, it was about 22:15 & we saw three objects hovering off to our right, spread out just south of the motorway between J7 & J6.

Two were very close to the motorway & so after passing I knew I needed a better look.

We turned around at J6 & headed back. The third object seemed to have moved much further to the south & was now slightly obscured by the trees but the other two were now closer together & clearly visible. It was still difficult to guage a good perspective of scale but they seemed to be hovering no more than a 100ft above the field & trees next to the motorway.

They were all pulsating lots of colourful lights, one seemed to favour blue more than the others – the two closer objects were differently shaped but of somilar sizes. I doubt they were any bigger than a single decker bus but were bother much larger than a car (couldn’t see their actual structure, only their light patterns gave them any perceivable shape)

We turned around again, this time at J7 to head back on our original course. The objects were still there, flashing brightly coloured paterns & moving closer together & closer still to the motorway. This third glance made me think that the bluer of the two objects that remained visible was of a horizontal oval shape. Too thin to be egg shaped but wide to be cigar shaped. The other seemed more complex altogether – it was flashing a miriad of bright colours & was shaped something like the lid of a tall teapot.

My wife said she thought they looked like beautiful brightly coloured giant kids toys floating in the sky – she also said that she thought the objects might be connected somehow but couldn’t be sure.

We were gob smacked & after three passes of viewing these objects – we are both so frustrated with the quality if the video futage & pictures we took with our phones.

But after a tiny search of the web once we were home I can see that we weren’t the only ones who’ve seen something strange on that same stretch of motorway. There’s been loads – right at that spot.

So my question is.. What the heck is going on in Basingstoke? Can anybody confirm what could possibly be creating this phenoma?

Whatever the answers are – I know that what we saw was amazing & made us both say “WOW” with more sincerity than ever before.

Thanks Jon

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

Never seen anything like it. Could be man made.. Thought maybe they were advertising blimps covered in LED's but it seems dangerously distracting for drivers & pointlessly expensive as there was nothing being advertised. Definitely seemed way too big to be kites.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I believe we're not alone in the galaxy but I'm unsure about whether we're alone here on earth. Perhaps an element of observation and/or control is linked to what we're experiencing. I'm very open to all ideas & believe that a big change is coming soon that will probably blow people's minds but that big change is going to begin with a lot of misdirection & disinformation. Perhaps that's already begun.
