First off please let me say a few things.
A) I know some folks (from reading the site) will slate the picture. I apologise in advance but the phone was all I had on me and in the circumstances
its better than nothing.
B) I don't 'do' UFOs. I am an aweful sceptic when it comes to 'flying saucers' and all the related articles that go with it. However I will
describe what I saw and admit it is totally unidentifiable to me when compared with any known technology.
C) Yes it has taken me three days to ponder over wether to write this up or not. The reason for this is to try and find a rational explanation (which
I cannot) Also, the exif data is intact on the picture and shows time / date clearly.
On the 10th of Sept. around 1pm (UK time) I was walking with a friend from their home to the beach when my friend pointed out what looked to be a
brightly lit airframe travelling towards the area of sky the sun was. We both remarked how it appeared to reflect with such an intensity that it must
either be highly polish aluminium or some other metallic material and watched it for a minute. My phone rang and I answered, forgetting about the
(what I believed to be) high flying aircraft and I walked onwards a small distance.
On shutting the phone down my friend again pointed out the 'aircraft' and said it was slowing down. I looked up and indeed as it approached the sun
it was slowing to an almost halt. That is not the behaviour of an aircraft! I had on sunglasses and with shielding the sun from view was able to see
it ground to an almost absolute halt and then move slowly sideways into the suns disk and vanished from view.
We waited 5 minutes and it didn't appear again so we walked away discussing it (and watching that area of the sky as we walked).
Then my friend noticed this 'aircraft' had edged out from the suns disk and was moving slowly forward - it then went so bright I couldn't believe
what I was seeing, almost as if it was illuminated from within. My friend asked me to take a picture on the phone (and I admit I forget about the
photo capability) as he wanted to show some people what we were looking at. I tried my best to mask the sun and get the craft in view and hence this
The craft then accelerated and went behind the clouds remaining well lit until it disappeared from sight and as you can guess we haven't stopped
talking about 'it'.
I again apologise about the poor picture, but i'd really like to hear if any one else has ever heard of / seen this type of behaviour in anything
they have read / heard of. Hence why I have shared it.
