I live in Hyde, about 5 miles south of Oldham. Both Hyde and Oldham are in east Manchester, to the west of the Pennines where, as TigerFeet says,
there has been hundreds of UFO sightings. IN fact, I think this area, along with somewhere in Scotland and somewhere else in Northern Ireland are THE
UFO hotspots of the UK.
TF, are you saying that this thing actually had sparks flying off it? What day was it? I think you are confused with the time, as it is only just
going dark at 10pm in our part of the world, far from being pitch black!
Was this yesterday by any chance? As I was in Oldham yesterday for the gig on Alexandra park (for those who won't know about this, it was to help
ease racial tensions in Oldham after huge riots in the Glodych are of the town, from Asian youths, the biggest riots seen in England since the 70's.
It was also supposed to be a celebration of high population of different races in teh area. There was a really good INdian guy singing, a very good up
and coming band from Hyde called I am Kloot and the world famous "Ska" legend, Desmond Dekker) and spent a lot of time lying oin the grass, on my
back looking up to the heavens, I was watching a dot seemingly moving in several different directions in the same area for 15/20 mins, it seemed to be
at a similar height as inter-continental planes fly. I am not convinced that I saw anything too special, as my eye sight is so poor I have no
confidence in the solidity of what I saw but it would be interesting if you witnessed something strange on the same day, in the same area.
