My apologies if this has been posted before however, it is a nicely researched and collated example of a sighting by more than one person. There were,
as far as known, no known visual captures of the object in question so the photos contained in the article are there purely for reference. The object
spotted seemed to be a small black sphere that hovered, apparently motionless, for some considerable length of time over a suburb of Birmingham during
October 2012. Commensurate with the sighting a police helicopter was seen in the near vicinity and seemed to be "observing" the very same
Birmingham IK UFO October 2012
The case is from last year however, it is pleasing to see that someone did take the effort to investigate as thoroughly as they could and that, the
local airport did admit to having some rather strange traffic in their area. They claim the traffic was a "kite"...
On the evening of the 6th October a kite was reported as potentially being in the area to the North of the airfield and therefore, as a precaution,
aircraft were temporarily arriving and departing from the South only. This was a very unusual occurrence and operations are now back to normal.
Now as they also later claimed the following. Due to the fact it was getting dark and foggy, the air space was shut down until the following
...... Now foggy, means conditions of no wind at all, which rather begs the question how do you fly a kite with no wind and manage to keep
said kits aloft in the same position for some 45 minutes? The investigator was also told by the Environmental Impact spokesperson that...
- The police helicopter did locate the object and confirmed that it was a kite just as the pilot had initially reported. - She did not know how
this kite was removed after it had been found or any further details about it.
To hazard a guess, the most obvious candidate would be some sort of "military drone" however, that then begs the question of what it was doing
interfering with civilian traffic over a residential area.? It does seem rather strange that some "secret" military drone would be flown over 1. A
heavily populated area and held in position, in plain site, for so long and 2. It would be contradictory to just about every safety rule in the book
that govern even military flights.
To my mind, a genuinely fascinating case that might well have some prosaic explanation and yet it does seem to raise far more questions than have so
far been fully answered.
