Hello there ATS!
I've been visiting this site for about 2-3 years but only had an account a few months, I'm from the Midlands UK. I have long been a UFO enthusiast
being bought up on X-Files in my younger years triggered it all off, also I am a dedicated Spiritualist.
I DID want to post in the UFO forum about something I have witnessed just 15 minutes ago but (and understandably) I cannot due to my post count.
I was having a cig out the front of my house and was using the Planisphere app on my iPhone (check it out, its very educational to the untrained sky
) I was looking at Venus in relation to the position of the moon when to the North East of the moon I spotted what I thought at first
might have been a satellite passing over in a fast steady direction from East to West. I thought how pleasant it was to spot it and carried on smoking
as it disappeared into the distance.
Now a few seconds later, probably less than a minute I saw a SECOND originating from around about where I spotted the first but this was moving from
South to North, it seemed to slow to a near stop and changed to a North West direction almost on the spot. It whizzed over my house quite quickly, not
amazingly fast but defiantly faster than a high altitude plane. Once it had gone over my house it was gone.
I couldn't believe my luck seeing 2 similar objects so close together! But then the third appeared, yet again from a similar area the other 2 started
from but this time going North East. This one was much faster than the other 2 and seemed smaller (higher?) than the previous, it got to a point near
to some woods and fields to the East of my house and stopped. I watched it for a few seconds before it just faded out.
Each of these sightings lasted between 20seconds to a minute, the first and third being the longer of the trio.
For the record this is not the first time I have seen UFO's, but they were much higher than I have seen in the past and these stuck about longer. I
am perfectly straight headed and not on any medication besides painkillers, also I have 'perfect' 20/20 vision.
Left me in a good mood after a bad day, as usual seeing is believing but I will try answer all (if any) questions, just wish I could have posted this
in the right area!
ANYWAY!!! That's a long introduction! I hope to get to know as many of you as possible, and contribute as much as I can.
(edited to correct spelling)
