Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Appeard brown cigar shape - one line of orange port holes down the centre of the side. The small craft that appeared bright were more like lights in the sky looking almost circular. This I think was due to the distance and their smaller size, but as they moved away and back again they must have been quite substantial in size being clearly visible moving across the sky.
Size of Object(s)
At 1000ft it must have been at least the length of 2/3 aircraft carriers.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
approx 1000ft high and a mile away.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Over Cheltenham town centre in an urban area. No special military or power plants but it is the centre of the government secret listening/intelligence gathering facility.
Full Description & Details
The craft was stationary in the sky for quite some time (30 minutes).
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
We could not explain it as anything normal or man made. Its size and the way the small craft moved so fast.
Trained in sales and marketing and worked all my life in the technical paper industry, manufacturing special filtration media. Today I am technical sales manager, but have held managerial positions in marketing and other diciplines and today a director of the company.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
As a 10 year old child I had no idea of such things. My mother during this event told my sister and I that things had been reported previously as unidentified flying objects.
Since that time I have not seen anyting in the night sky more interesting than satelites!
