UFO filmed in the skies above Stourbridge


news.bbc.co.uk

A BBC WM journalist has filmed a mysterious light in the skies above Stourbridge.

The footage was recorded at around 9.30pm on the evening of Monday, 17 May using a mobile phone.

It shows an orange ball crossing the horizon above Wollaston, travelling from north to south, before disappearing behind some trees.

BBC WM's Brett Birks was watering his garden at the time and happened to look up at the sky.

"I glanced upwards and saw this orange ball," he said.

"It was travelling on a perfect course across the sky. It appeared to change colour from orange to yellow and back again.

I live about 2 miles rom this place, and have myself seen something in the sky when i was younger, we have no airforce bases near to us, no airport for 25 miles and no army bases, i find it very strange that these occurances keep happening over a quite unremarkable part of the country.

It is also quite striking that this was captured by a BBC radio journalist.

A radio journalist couldn't get a better shot than that?



I don't think this the proof that will convey the skeptics.

i dont think he was out looking for things, he just saw it as he walked along a street so all he had was a mobile phone.

Those Chinese lanterns have a lot to answer for. They should be banned.
People are still confusing them with ufo's.

'Convey the skeptics'? No I don't think it will convey them. Why should a radio journalist be able to get better footage than anyone else with a phone camera?

Also, la2, why is it striking that it was a radio journalist who saw it? You can bet on this becomming an 'its a chinese lantern' thread.

He is a journalist after all, no matter what type of journalist you are..in order to succeed you have to be ready for the moment. This could've have been his moment if it was anything other than an lantern.

Ok. So while he's out gardening, he should have a good camera set up on a tripod, ready to capture a light in the sky? Of course, what an idiot he is for not thinking of that.

Looks like a chinese lantern. I see many of them in brighton at night, and they look the same as the footage. Nothing strange here!

Hey, again a tripod camera is stretching it, but anything better than a 1meg pixel phone camera would do.

I will go out on a limb here and say that the sky looked fairly bright for a chinese lantern to show up like that.
Even when they zoomed in on it you could see it flash.

I am not screaming !ALIENS!, just saying that I am not sure this is a chinese lantern.

Ive seen the exact same thing myself a couple of months ago, and i can promise you they are not lanterns, theres a big difference between a BALL of fire shooting across the sky and a lantern floating gently across it.

Are we looking at the same video?
I wouldn't quite say that it shooting across the sky at any great speed. It does look like it is floating gently.

The same thing happened here in Belfast last year, six of them in fact, in a line. They floated close to my house. The local radio station went bonkers over it, but nobody wanted to believe the simple (Boring) reason for it.
Ignorance ruled that day.

well the 'chinese lantern' theory is quite a recent thing, and these kind of sighting have been going on for years.

i saw something during the mid 1990's, i was walking the dog and heard what sounded like hearing a jet engine, like these programmes of jets leaving an aircraft carrier, i looked up and coming from the east (i know this because uk satelite dishes face south before we went digital), was a silver and red streak across the sky, it was very noisy and really big. It shot across my head and disappeared, only lasted a few seconds. I called the police, and the day after they called back claiming it was a comet, which i accepted.

a few days later i got a call from the local newspaper saying they wished to interview me, as they felt there was more to it. The reporter told me that less than 10 minuites before i called the police the RAF base at cosford, about 40 miles away, had requested fighters be scrambled to investigate and cigar shaped object they had hovering over the end of their runway, it was on radar and when jets where in the air, it shot off, soon followed by my report to the police.

Sorry to say this folks, but..

May 17th was my mate's birthday, I was at the party, in Stourbridge. They set off a couple of chinese lanterns.

I did tell them off for it though
