HI,
My Mother witnessed a UFO today in the sky above Middleton Manchester, England. about 3:00pm
she said it was a figure 8 oscillating and flipping over in a smooth steady fashion going right across the sky.
with blue lights all around it. It was really sunny here pure blue sky at that time so they must have been super bright lights and not LED's. she shouted me to look but I never heard her as I was playing music, she had just told me now.
I told her it was a toy Drone. but that no longer fits the description now she described it and drew a picture.
it did not have any rotor blades, just two small holes in it. no mechanisms or distinguishable parts. almost all solid & smooth.
here is the drawing.

She said it was about the size of a helicopter(a real one not a toy) traveling about the same speed as one would at a height I've estimated at around 50-80 feet traveling in a mechanical fashion not like a balloon I've also suggested.

Ive done tones of google searched for drones of this type but cant find anything.
anyone have any ideas? or can shed some light on it?

I'll check my local paper tomorrow as well in case other people have seen it as I imagine they would have.

Interesting but no I think even I would have heard that as I was only in the other room.
it was spinning over like a paddle constant , she said their was no sound. she had the window open as she was lay on the bed when she noticed it.

I dont have any ideas or can shed some light on what she saw, but i could probably make one with today's technology and for less than £50.

What's with the oculus logo? Did you just get a VR unit? It looks printed not drawn.....

I saw it too I think. Nearly got my camera but then the sceptic in me thought it might be black balloon. It would definitely be what I saw but it was a little earlier. Get a lot of planes near me circling and sometimes helicopters but definitely neither. Also get lots of chinese lanterns. On closer inspection decided it wasnt balloon as was an odd shape and rather than travelling along in the wind it was going higher and higher almost turning because was jagged in shape on one side. I bet a lot of people will have seen it because as you say not a cloud in sky clear blue skys.

By the way Im near Ashton so if you are Middleton near Oldham not far from you it could have travelled over to you as I saw it about 2.30

Awesome!! Yeah i was guesing 3:00 could have been earlier . You say it was getting higher? It was quite low down acording to mum. Ashton is only a few miles away. Wish I had seen it myself.
Is there any chance you could draw it? a reply to: anxiouswens


Tavi45 yes I got an oculus DK2 the manual was the only piece of paper I had at hand for the drawimg

Maybe someday, Manchester will open a store that sells Cameras, and phones with cameras, so that the public will have something to capture images with...since apparently they only have pencils right now.

Is it windy there?

Perhaps Zoro lost his mask.

you're luckey you dident get a cave painting in some parts of Manchester ^^

Its sad because in this house we have 3 camera phones a video camera 2 compacts and a high end SLR with tons of lenses. If she shouted ufo! I would have been straight on it. But whispering my name across the house was not good enough mother! Haha

That seems pretty accurate, minus the blue lights, but I'm assuming those can be fastened to it quite easily.

Couple of watch batteries and a few LED's...Easy enough. you could even attach a micro prop/fan to give it that tumbling motion.

With a very slight weighting to one end and not the other, the wind should give it the tumble effect....same motion, zero noise.

Very good soloprotocol. I found that image too
But mum said it wasent an 8 as such it was like an infinity shape elengated and very solid.
and a way way bigger. And the fact another member here seen it in ashton which is 12 miles from me just before I did. Mum said it was flying perfectly straight in a mechanical fashion.

It wasent that high up. Where you would need binos. It was very clear and fairly low. Acording to mum. I know what you meen though I filmes a maylar balloon and posted it here in 2004. And everyone went crazy. It was super far away though. Turned out to be a balloon.
