I haven’t posted here on ATS for many months now. The reason? I simply tired of the place. I grew weary of the juvenile excitement shown over
dreadful Youtube videos. I was fed-up of the elation derived from photos of dust particles and rain drops. I lost patience with the sycophantic drivel
directed towards bogus ufo maharishis like Meier, Greer and Gilliland despite the fact that they all present overtly fake imagery as the real deal –
(remember the wedding cake, remember mothra, remember blue tac and bead!)
Because of this I spent less time fixed to the monitor of my pc and more time out doors and this resulted in my own personal bona fide sighting.
It was a triple sighting and took place over a period of a scant few seconds. It happened last November -it was early evening the sky was dark, with
scattered broke cloud- and was also witnessed by my brother – indeed it was he who drew my attention to the first object.
This was a solid red triangular object travelling across the sky at above-cloud altitude; it’s size was about that of a high altitude airliner but
moved at a much greater speed. When this disappeared in the distance I scanned the sky and two more objects appeared over the roof of my house
directly overhead. These two objects were formed of three very distinctive red lights in a triangular formation and they travelled side by side -they
were of a size similar to the first object. What was most intriguing about them was that one was actually rotating. Within moments they were lost
behind clouds but the brief sighting was jaw-dropping.
Despite the fact that I own a digital stills camera and a digital video camera the event had finished before I even had time to think about using
them. Minutes later we took my video camera and walked to a recreation ground away from the light pollution should anything else make an appearance,
but nothing did.
Following the sighting I texted and emailed friends to let them know what I’d witnessed. One gave me a website address and suggested that I report
it there which I did and included some basic art work for illustrative purposes.
The date was November 2nd (2007), a time of year in the UK when the skies are filled with fireworks. Though it would be nice if we had observed
extraterrestrial craft my belief is that they were terrestrial, possibly experimental military types and flown deliberately at that time of year so
any witness reports could be put down to 'misidentified sky-rockets'.
Curiously, two days after the event my brother alerted me to their return. It was around mid day and when I went to see I was astonished to observe a
cluster of red objects moving across the sky. It took only a moment to realise they were small balloons but despite their prosaic nature I tried to
video them (I learned then just how difficult it is to pick out small airborne objects when using a video camera that only has a 2.5 inch lcd
Perhaps I was somewhat paranoid (had my emails or texts been intercepted?!) but I did wonder whether the release of these red balloons was deliberate
– another ‘straightforward explanation’ as to what was previously observed.
For myself the most interesting part of the sighting was the rotating triangle. This may have been observed and reported before but I don’t recall
Make of this what you will.
For me it was a genuine and remarkable experience (I would have serioulsy thought I had dreamt it had it not been for a second witness being
For you, dear reader it is simply another anecdote that sadly lacks any solid evidence!
People in the UK keeps your eyes on the skies come next bonfire night!!
