Appearance / Description of Object(s)
From my sister's description (she observed it firstly and in greater detail) it was a large inverted cone with an obtuse (flattened) triangular base - the top of it which bore the red lights moving from corners to apex and back again. I.e. an inverted trapezoid.
Size of Object(s)
I'd estimate 100 ft across and 200 ft deep.
Description of Area / Surroundings
We were living in Crownhill which is a high up part of Plymouth overlooking a valley between residential estates and the naval base in view towards the west , the ufo seemed to be traversing from a south west to north west trajectory over the city.
Full Description & Details
It was my younger sister who alerted us (my mother and I) to come and view a large 4 sided trapezoid, like an inverted cone with a triangular rather than flat bottom. My sister saw more of it than I saying she saw lit up windows on it and it was apparently following a dash 7 commercial airplane on route to land at Plymouth airport.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
It was far too big and too quiet and too slow to be explained terrestrially and also too low to be an airship or balloon with those moving lights it was inexplicable .
I am a trained laboratory technician with a university background. I was only 13 years of age at the time of the sighting
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I was open-minded, my grandfather had told me of a saucer-shaped sighting he made in Coventry during the 1950's, the experience was very enlightening unlike anything before and has changed my outlook on life. I was a sceptical enquirer before the encounter which turned me into a believer.
I make this report mainly because I have not come across many reports of ufo's which conform to this particular configuration. I mainly hear about saucer or disk - type or cigar shaped objects. Yet, this inverted trapezoid object which was so apparently huge seems totally extra-terrestrial and I hope that it stimulates others to report objects they may have observed no matter how outlandish and incomprehensible that they might have witnessed.
