Large Black Object, Benton Newcastle, 5th June 2019

Location Of Sighting :
Benton, Newcastle
Date Of Sighting :
Witness Name:
James Girling
Witness Statement
I was travelling home and I noticed an object in the sky about 2 minutes from home, it was fairly high up, black and looked like a large bird so it captured my attention. As I carried on tracking the object I noticed it had no wings, and so assumed it must be a drone. As I arrived in my housing estate I saw little glimpses of it between the houses so at this point it was fairly low. It looked much larger than a drone upon further inspection. I parked the car at home and rushed to a gap in the road where I could see clearly. It was a large black object, similar in shape to that of a human, I’d never seen anything like it before and it made no noise at all. I saw it for a few seconds before it disappeared over some trees, very strange sighting.

Static Yellow/Orange Light – Hadston NE65 – 03 September 2018 – 22:00hrs

Location Of Sighting :
Hadston NE65
Date Of Sighting :
03 September 2018
Witness Name:
James Doull
Witness Statement
On the evening of Monday 3rd of September 2018 I was standing, looking out of my patio door, whilst enjoying a cigarette. The time was exactly 22:00hrs. My eyes were drawn to what appeared to be a static yellow-orange light over in a South Westerly direction.
Initially I thought it was a star, however I quickly ruled that possibility out on the basis of its colour.
Initially it appeared to be static, however I was viewing it between the sillouhette of two nearby properties and noticed that it moved, very slowly from East to West, over the next 15+ minutes.At that point it disappeared behind the roofline of the house on my Right.
I am aged 74 and have mobility problems, otherwise I would have ventured outside to position my viewpoint in front of my neighbours property in order to track the light.
Since that night I have been visiting friends in Nottingham and Oxfordshire, so I have not had the opportunity to check that area of sky again.
It’s now Friday 7th Sept and tonight I shall investigate once again and report back my findings.

Dark Object With Orange/Red Lights – Cramlington – Northumberland – 23rd April 2018

Location of Sighting: Cramlington, Northumberland.
Date of Sighting: 23rd April 2018
Time: 4/5pm
Witness Name: Mimi Hope
Witness Statement: I saw a round dark object low in the sky, I could see 2 or 3 orange/red light on the left-hand side of it, bearing in mind the sun was on the right side, as the ufo slightly turned I could very clearly see it’s full shape, the only way I can describe it is, it was round with and empty middle a bit like a doughnut. I grabbed my phone to take a video and for some unknown reason my video on my phone wouldn’t work so all I could do is watch it disappear into the distances. (I did try my video afterwards and it worked fine) The ufo made no sound at all but all the time I was watching it my heart was pounding and I felt really like a little scared but excited at the same time. This is not the 1st time I have seen objects in the sky over Cramlington.

Bright Darting Object-Over Bedlington, Northumberland-19th August 2017

Location of Sighting: Over Bedlington, Northumberland
Date of Sighting:19 Aug 2017
Time: 00.30
Witness Name:Guy Routledge
Witness Statement: Something similar like a very small cloud but bright darting across the sky in a South easterly direction, stopping dead and going in a 90% angle westerly. It returned to it original position then carried on southeasterly. It was far to fast for any jet or helicopter. I have only told my partner as people would think I was crazy. Unfortunately no video or photo as i didnt have time to capture it and camera wouldn’t have captured the image

Silvery Grey Diamond Shape -Mouth of River Blyth – 8th January 2017

Location of Sighting: Mouth of River Blyth
Date of Sighting: 08/01/2017
Time: 13:15
Witness Name: Paul
Witness Statement: While sailing into River Blyth on a small yacht we noticed something in the sky to the South of us. It was bright clear and sunny day which made visability perfect.

The item was diamond shaped with silvery/grey rounded edges and sides. It had a strange blue haze or glow out of its trailing end.

We watched it pass over the yacht so looked at it from several directions for probably two mins. We could not identify it. It was hard to say how high up or large it was. Our best guess would be 100ft up and 30ft in length and traveled slowly.

We both agreed that it was not an airplane, helicopter or drone. It seems to hold its altitude, shape, made no noise and pass us at a regulated height.

It was travelling with the wind but did have the trailing blue haze from one end. Very odd.
