Birmingham City Centre-3rd September 2011

Location of Sighting: Birmingham City Centre
Date of Sighting: Sat 3rd September 2011
Time: apprrox 11.00am
Witness Name: Lucy Fennell

Witness Statement: I stayed at the Copthorne Hotel on Friday 2nd September for my partners 40th Birthday. I got up to have a naughty cigarette out of the window while he went to the bathroom. After about 1 minute, I saw a metalic silver sphere to my left approx ! I looked at it for a few seconds to try and distinguish what it was, but to no avail. I then began to look at the ground and the office building opposite to see who had the remote control…. but there appeared to be no one operating the thing! No string for a balloon, or cable over head for any machinery…..all practical explanations were totally gone! I was on about the 6th floor from what I remember, and it was straight in my eyeline and very close – approx 7 meters away. It was smallish like I could wrap my arms around it ( no bigger than that), and floating through the air in a horizontal direction at an extremely slow speed. It was metalic with what looked like really fine lines around it, but didn’t appear to be spinning – just calmly floating. I couldn’t take my eyes off it as I knew deep down what it was. It was so close I felt like I could touch it, and in broad day light. I was frozen still, but with what felt like an inner calmness, even though by all account I should have been petrified. It slowly floated past my window and got further away. When it came to the next building on my right which was lower than the hotel, but about 1 floor higher than where I was staying it manoeuvred over it with great accuracy. It went up a floor, along the roof, up again over the chimney and down to a point where I couldn’t see it again.

Please dont dismiss my sighting, I’m a realist, and exhausted all possibilities, before I had to give in to the inevitable that I was seeing a UFO. I have tried to contact people in the past to talk about my experience, but have been dismissed – I am not a fantacist. I have only told 2 people I know about this, and one of which is no longer with us, and I know they didn’t really believe me. I am desperate to get this off my chest, and have prayed that it will come back and float past my house so I can take a picture or video so people will believe me. I am now a believer even if they aren’t!

By the way……my partner came out of the bathroom just as it was manoeuvring over the building to my right, but he didn’t see it or was looking in the wrong place.

  1. I witnessed a similar sighting just last tuesday,very real!! I believe you. I’m also from birmingham

  2. Hi Lucy, thank you for such a detailed and credible account. It’s one of the best I’ve read on this site.

  3. HI LUCY, I BELIEVE YOU…AND I WILL EXPLAIN WHY.
    I MYSELF POSTED A ‘SIGHTING’ VERY SIMULAR TO YOUR’S WHICH WAS A SILVER METALIC SPHERE WHICH I HAD SEEN WHILST PAINTING SOMEONES HOUSE BACK IN AUGUST 2007.
    LIKE YOU HAVE DESCRIBED YOURSELF..I BELIEVE I AM A PRACTICALLY SOUND MINDED PERSON, AND NEVER REALLY PAID THIS SORT OF THING MUCH ATTENTION TO ALL THIS SORT OF THING. HOWEVER I HAVE ALSO EXHAUSTIVLEY SCROLLED THE INTERNET TO FIND A PLAUSABLE EXPLANATION, INCLUDING NASA/SCIENCE WEB SITES, AND HAVE FOUND SIMULAR LOOKING OBJECTS.
    HOWEVER, THE ONE ONE THING THEY CANT EXPLAIN..IS THE FEELING THAT THESES ‘OBJECTS’ SEEM TO BE (WITHOUT SOUNDING STUPID) EITHER INTELLIGENTLY CONTROLLED OR….ALIVE -IN THE SENSE ONLY YOU WERE MEANT TO SEE IT!
    IT SEEMS TO FUNNY THAT WHEN EVER ANYONE REPORTS SEEING THESE ‘SILVER SPHERE’S’..WHICH PEOPLE DO ON THIS SITE, THEY ONLY SEEM TO BE SEEN BY USUALLY BY 1 SOMETIMES 2 PERSONS. IM AFRAID TO SAY LUCY YOU WILL RACK YOUR BRAINS TRYING TO SEE ANOTHER AS THEY ONLY SEEM TO POP UP WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT THEM.
    THANKS FOR POSTING
    CRAIG.

  4. I don’t think anyone on here will dismiss your sighting. This site is where I first told of my first sighting (3rd November 2011).

    Your sighting may be a one-off or may be the beginning of something life-changing. Have you thought about contacting a researcher?

  5. Don’t worry about the non-believers, I suppose it’s hard to accept unless you’ve seen it with your own eyes, and even if the evidence is very credible some people are just slow to catch on.

  6. Lucy…..Just one thing to say! I believe you!

  7. Great report Lucy, I bet you’ve thought about it every day since the event? Like the rest of us do.

  8. Your report is intriguing. It reminded me of a story my mother-in-law told me last year. She recalled a similar sighting when she was a young girl – sometime around 1960 when she was 12 or 13 years old. She lived on the east coast in a fairly remote farm. She had just collected her younger brother from the school bus and was walking along the road back to the farm. She described looking up and seeing, hovering directly above her, a silver metallic sphere. She froze to the spot with shock as she tried to work out what she was seeing. After a minute or so the sphere shot upwards at great speed until it was out of sight. She hadn’t told anyone about the sighting until last year when we were, over a meal, discussing various odd things we’d seen in the skies over East Yorkshire.

  9. Great sighting, really fascinating. Just beware of the people here who will tell you that they’re reconnaissance drones etc…..

  10. Great sighting Lucy a real UFO. You’ll never forget it.

  11. In a word Lucy, welcome. You are now in a elite club. I remember my first sighting and my heart being in my throat, but now, after experiencing a `flap` I find myself talking to `them`.

  12. It might help you to know that about 13 years ago, it was reported in the London Metro that 2 British Airways pilots flying an A320 into Heathrow were ‘ghosted’ by a silver ‘ball’ shape object. The ball stayed along side the aircraft cockpit for about 30 seconds at a distance of about 15 metres so they got a very good look at it. They reported it as being silver, spherical, about 3 feet in diameter and with no apparent means of propulsion. They filed a near miss regarding this incident but later mysteriously withdrew their report. Credible witnesses such as these only serve to reinforce the the possibility that these phenomena do exist.
