It was Wednesday evening around 8.00 pm on December 24th 1980. My wife and i and my wife's brother and his girlfriend where traveling by car along
the A34 just south of Birmingham UK. As it was Christmas Eve we had decided to go for a celebration meal as it had been my wife's birthday the
previous day. The A34 road we traveled along was a route we had taken many times over the years, so we knew the surroundings along the route very
well. Back in 1980 the M42 motorway had not been constructed and at that time the A34 use to wind around farm fields on both sides of the road. As we
travelled along i noticed in a paticular field on my left hand side, what appeared to be a "Cone" shaped construction which stood about 10 feet high
and was probably about 8-10 feet wide. What made me look was the fact as i have previously stated i had traveled that road on many occasions and knew
for a fact that the field had no buildings etc within it. The "Cone" was giving off what i would call a "Mother Of Pearl" effect, the light of it
was changing from blue,to white,to read, to grey. I just looked in amazement as we drove past.
I would estimate the object was about 100 yards from the road. We traveled on and no one within the car had said anything. However about a mile and
a half further on my brother-in-law spoke out by saying"You will never guess what i thought i saw just back along the road?" More or less in unison
the three of us replied "A UFO" My brother-in-law who was driving said" I am going to turn around and let's go and see what it was" He turned the
car around and when we reached the point of the sighting we found..........Nothing. It had gone.
A few years later i was watching a TV programme about the Rendlesham Forest UFO incident at RAF Bentwaters, Suffolk England. On the TV programme,
some of those who had winessed the UFO sighting at Rendlesham Forest on 25th and 26th December 1980 had descibed and drawn what they had witnessed.
To my amazement, what they described was exactly what four people had seen on the 24th December 1980 near Birmingham.
I hope this maybe of interest to some of you, and i have made myself coherent
In the past 10 years i have had two further "UFO" sightings.
Thanks for listening.
