Location of Sighting: Asfordby, Melton Mowbray
Date of Sighting: 21.7.10
Witness Name: adey c
Witness Statement: My friend and I had just returned to Asfordby Main Street from a dog walk. We were just saying goodbye in my garden, I noticed what I initially thought was a plane heading towards East Mids airport. I immediately realised that the light being omitting from the object was large in size, continuous and seemed to be coming from the centre of the aircraft. The light had a strange orangeness to it and I then thought that it may be an airship of some description. It seemed to be travelling quite slowly and we could not hear any noise. It initially looked to have some distance from us but then it turned quite sharply and started heading away from us. We could then see that it was almost square, looked metallic and had no wings or rotary blades and was only probably 1/2 mile away. We both agreed that we have not seen anything like this before. At approx 1am on the same evening I noticed a bright light in the sky from my kitchen window. It seemed to just hang in the sky and may have had the altitude that a helicopter would have. The light was too bright and continuous for a helicopter. Again there was no noise. This looked as though it was over the outskirts of the nearest town of Melton Mowbray approx 4 miles. I called my friend and she could see the same object. I then viewed what looked to be the same object at 3am slightly more overhead. Same type of light and no noise. We are completely baffled as to what we saw that evening.
