Location of Sighting: Axbridge, Somerset
Date of Sighting: 25th December 2008
Witness: Liz Tebbutt
Witness Statement: My husband and I had been to our midnight service in Winscombe and were travelling to collect our daughter and friend from Cheddar.
On the Axbridge by-pass, looking over the levels, we saw what appeared to be a plane or helicopter travelling west, but as it got nearer we realised it had no flashing lights and was quite low and was orange in colour. We stopped the car and opened the windows to get a better look and were surprised to hear no engine noise whatsoever.
Puzzled, we carried on to Cheddar and picked up the girls, telling them about what we had seen. They thought it was hilarious and asked if we had taken too much communion wine!
As we joined the by-pass again, we spotted the light again, but this time there were three, flying in a perfect equilateral triangle. We pulled over at the observation car park, but they had disappeared (there were patches of cloud) but there was still no engine noise. After dropping off the friend in Cross, we saw them again as we reached the New Inn junction with the A38- again over the levels.
