Slow Moving Bright White Light-Hillbutts, Wimborne, Dorset-November 2020

Location Of Sighting :
Hillbutts, Wimborne, Dorset. BH21 4DS
Date Of Sighting :
Nov 2020
6:30 – 7:00 pm
Witness Name:

Witness Statement
Bright white light low in the sky above the field slowly moving forward towards me. Zero noise. No other lights or traffic were moving along the lane that I was stood in.
The light suddenly disappeared despite very little cloud coverage, and so I moved further down the road to try and catch up with it. It revealed itself again for a few minutes then disappeared again.
I was returning home during this time and it was quite dark. When I looked again the light became vertical heading upwards above the same field. I kept checking to see if I could see it away from the field as I was now stood on the main road leading away from Hillbutts lane where the field is out of view. Still there was no sound, and I didn’t see it again that night.
There were no car lights incoming from the main road as there were hardly any cars on the road at all that evening. Also, this light was moving very slowly for longer minutes just before it disappeared the first time. It was too low and bright to have been a cloud and the sky was quite clear. The light was silent, and so not likely to have be an aircraft. And as far as I am aware balloons don’t turn vertical at an angle.
I have to say this is the first time I’ve had to really question what I saw. yes, I am into all things paranormal but have not exaggerated this story in any way. Thank you for setting up the site as there seems to be more sightings here.

Witness Statement
I was walking my dog, looking up at the stars as I always do and noticed what I thought was two satellites. I’m a bit of a satellite geek so called my mum to look on her app to see what they were.
Whilst waiting for her call back I noticed another one following, and another, and another.. I counted 16 in total! My mum called back and said nothing was showing up on her app.
They were bright white, all spaced out evenly apart from two in the middle were along side each other.
All going in a straight line..
They disappeared behind a cloud eventually and I can’t stop wondering what they were..

Large Orange Light Disappeared Then Reappeared – Dorset – 30th April 2019

Witness Statement
My partner and I were staying for a few days in a forest lodge high up on the aptly named Godshill on the edge of the New Forest. We had just finished watching a football match on tv and decided to take in the evening air on the balcony. It was a lovely night and from our high vantage point we could see the twinkling lights of towns and little villages way out towards Dorset and the West. It was also the perfect spot to watch the following curious incident.
As we sat down on the balcony something quickly caught my eye. Among all the little twinkling lights was a much larger orange one. It was higher than the others but in the darkness it was hard tell if it was airborne or sitting on a high piece of ground. My first thoughts were that it was a fire of some sort…maybe a beacon on top of a distant hill. It was static for sure. Quite bright with maybe a triangular shape. Distance was hard to gauge but at a guess I would say it was very close to the town of Fordingbridge about 3 miles away.
” Can you see that odd light” I asked my partner pointing in its general direction.
“Yes it’s a ufo” she sarcastically replied. I should point out that the ‘other half’ is not a believer in any shape of form. But the moment she spoke the light disappeared…no fading, no movement, just gone. ” There you go” she said ” it’s gone back to Mars”. I ignored her dry wit and stared back towards its former position. Bingo! It reappeared in exactly the same place. As my eyes were adjusting to the night I was pretty sure this object was above the distant hills and tree lines and hovering ( but if I’m honest I wouldn’t put my shirt on it). What happened next though was highly interesting.
I heard the choppers before I saw them . Two at first , moving through the night at speed from the north. Each had a red flashing light . At first they were so close I thought it was one aircraft, but both were heading in redirection of the hovering orange flame. Then at almost the same time another chopper flew low, directly over my head ( east to west) also in the direction of the orange flame. At this point I ran inside to find my binoculars as I wanted a better look at anything that was about unfold. When I returned the orange flame had gone again. “Where did it go?” i asked the wife. She shrugged ” Like before it just vanished”. Happy that the incident was over and that no little green men had been found she wandered inside to do the washing up. I never saw the light again but stood watching as the choppers criss crossed the area for some time. One chopper left after about 15/20 minutes and the other two stayed for a total of 30 mins. I couldnt tell if they were police, search and rescue or military or commercial, but they were noisy.
At 10:30pm nothing remained but the sounds of the night animals and the distant twinkling lights of Fordingbridge. Out of interest I asked the ‘other half’ what explanation she had .
“Police looking for someone I expect” she said . “That must be it” I replied not wishing to sound like a nutter, but knowing full well the police round here do not have access to 3 copters unless some huge joint operation was taking place with other counties. I heard no police sirens, saw no distant blue flashing lights.
This incident is what it is… I have no pictures, no video footage and nothing resembling proof of an army operation…I just have this odd little story to tell from my good observation spot on my little balcony! Make of it what you will.

Who knows what it was but deffinatley strange.

Bournemouth-3rd May 2016

Location of Sighting: Bournemouth
Date of Sighting: 3/5/2016
Time: 10pm
Witness Name: Ben

Witness Statement: Was looking out to the night sky in a southerly direction and saw an orange/red light quickly appear stationary for a couple of seconds disappear then re-appear a few seconds later slightly east and continue to do this until there was a brighter almost flash as it seemed shoot off towards Southampton there was a satellite passing near by at the time and seemed to be at a similar height. I’m a massive aircraft enthusiast and can say for sure this was no plane, helicopter, quadcopter, glider, satellite, balloon, bird or anything we knowingly have on this planet! It wasn’t in our atmosphere Keep your eyes in the skies!!!!
