Location of Sighting: Toton, Nottingham
Date of Sighting: August 2012
Witness Name: Paul Duke
Witness Statement: I’ve always been interested in ufo’s but until August last year I’d never seen one. I was standing in the conservatory waiting for the dogs to come in when I noticed a cigar shaped bright object passing slowly from West to East just south of me. I immediately assumed it was a plane on it’s glidepath befor landing at East Midlands Airport, and being just as interested in planes I watched it. To my amazement it suddenly ‘jinked’ left and then right and left again. so I took a lot more interest in it as I’d never seen a plane behave in that way before. There was no sound and no lights, just a white steady glow as if it were a glow-worm. This thing was the size of a 737 without the wings. All of a sudden it changed direction again and travelled North, heading to Beeston. At this stage I grabbed my Panasonic Lumix camera and tried to photograph it before it was out of sight but then it reversed it’s direction to the south and took up it’s original path towards the East. I don’t have a long focal length lens but I managed to snap one picture of it before it disappeared over the roof of the houses opposite and then it was gone. I haven’t seen anything since no matter how many times I’ve scanned the skies, but I’m convinced that what I saw was a ufo. I still have the photo if antone wants me to download it, but it’s a bit shaky to say the least as one can imagine. My very first ufo and I’ve got a photo of it, I feel quite proud of myself.
