Obviosuly some of you will have heard of the sky rods or roswell rods. Since leaving the forces i have spent a lot of time in the air as a trainee
pilot. Because of this when i return home i like to look in the sky as i live under a major UK flight path. Yesterday i put the Barbecue on cracked
open a beer and lay on the lounger observing the sky.
Now obviously i expected to see a lot of commercial aircraft but what i didnt expect to see where other objects to. At approx 1940hrs i saw what i
could only descibe as something the shape of a diamond. It was dark in colour and was moving very fast i would estimate 2-3 times that of a commercial
airliner. It was approx 30-35000 feet. This i know to be correct as it passed through 2 trails of previous commercial aircraft. The object was not
being carried by wind as it was performing constant movement in a uniform manner however made no noise or emitted any vapour.
After this i continued to observe the sky. 3 times whilst watching the sky in my periphial vision i saw what can only be described as the famous
flying rods. When trying to watch them direcltly i could not observe them however i kept catching them in my periphial vision moving in straight lines
and horizontal of my position and once moving oblique from a 7 O'Clock position to a 2 O'Clock position. Has anyone else ever had this experience i
would be pleased to know.
For those unsure of what i mean please observe this link
