A flashing light, not a flash light, like a strobe or something.
I've seen about 3 UFOs before - The best one being in Cornwall with a couple of friends and my girlfriend.
We saw it on the North Coast where we were camping out near a beach. I was standing outside and was watching what I thought was a plane, It had
flashing Red, Blue and White lights and moved around in a perculiar way, then realised that it wasn't and called my mates out. I only said 'look at
this plane' at first to see how they would react and they started saying 'thats not a plane!!'. We all had a funny feeling as we watched it and
sort of tranced out. I don't really remember what happened after that.
I'm training to be a private pilot at the moment and have always been interested in aircraft and watching them, so I know it did not move like, or
have the correct lighting for, an aircraft.
The best bit was, a couple of days later we where camoing down on the South Coast and bumped into this bloke we had met while we where in Cornwall,
and before we had even said anything to him he started telling us about this flying saucer he had seen with his mate a couple nights before (when we
saw it!), only they had seen it closer and it was round with the lights flashing round the outside.
We saw it one more time, a few weeks later, one night when we where back home in Somerset.
Another UFO I saw when I was younger, with my sister and my Dad, was a bright red unblinking light.
It just hovered in the same place over a hill we could see from our house for about 10 minutes, and suddenly just shot straight up out of sight. We
never saw it or anything like it again.
