I was in boarding School, Eastbourne on the south coast of England 1976 or 77 i would have been 9 or 10 (long time ago now to remember exactly).
At some time in the night i woke to a orange glow moving across the far wall of the dorm not unlike the reflection of a cars high beam which i thought
it was,but at the same time realizing there is no roads on the hills (south downs) i got up to go to the window were the light was coming from
thinking someone was driving around on the downs.
I opened the curtains to see a intensely bright orange light a light moving from the downs to the schools direction. Hight i could not tell you,, but
a few hundred feet at a guess as this object did not look very large but it was neither small, it passed by the window.
I ran to my bed which window faced the the street to have a good view of this object slowly and with no sound move above us towards Eastbourne
illuminating everything around with a crisp sharp light causing shadows of twigs and branches of the trees on the ground to move and sway as this
object moved past us.
At a blink of an Eye the orange ball of light (craft) was instantly joined by another pfffft just like that there was two!!!! It was at this point I
screamed "UFO" "UFO" look every one within seconds i had half the kids in the dorm looking out the windows with a perfect view of the Ufo's
slowly moving towards town, it was a few min's,,,The departure was what made me really think about what we saw the only way i can describe it was as
tracer bullet shooting straight up,, one whoosh then the other whoosh gone!
Photo/proof No, Eyewitness yes.
As a personal confirmation of sorts i recently have found a couple of old school friends on Face Book i made mention to one of them that i had seen a
UFO back at that school, to which she answered that her Brother Frank had also seen one and never forgot it often talked about it..it was so long ago
that i forgot that Frank was in the same dorm as me.
I'm 43 now and that is by far the biggest mystery in my life, not one day goes by without me dwelling on it for a minute or so,,What did we see that
Proof no,, but honest testimony yes.
Alien? don't know but the departure the way the object shot off like that that sticks with me the most.. The way one arrived and the way they both
Thanks for letting me share my little story with you all.
