Location of Sighting: Bexhill-on-Sea, Sussex
Date of Sighting: Sunday 18th November 2012
Time: approximately 3pm
Witness Name: Dr Paul Kitchenham
Witness Statement: It was a clear cold & sunny afternoon with hardly any wind: I went out in my garden to check the weather conditions before setting out for a walk and observed a metallic tubular shape moving quite rapidly from south to north, followed by a metallic ball moving at the same speed, as if it was being pulled by the tube. It was difficult to tell how high up they were – they could have been relatively low & small or higher & larger. I didn’t particularly take in what I’d seen & it only dawned on me as I went on my walk that I could not explain what I had seen: this realisation came about as a result of observing “angel hair” on bushes, trees & falling from the sky throughout the course of my walk (so throughout the Sidley, Glenleigh Park, Down & Woodsgate areas of Bexhill). I had read of its appearance in connection with UFO sightings & put 2 & 2 together. I should add that I handled some of the angel hair – it was definitely not spiders web or anything organic, as it crackled with a kind of static noise when I pulled a strand apart. It dissolved very rapidly on my hands but seemed to be persisting for longer on hedges etc, presumably because the temperature was lower than in my hands.
