Witness Statement
At about 9:40 on Friday evening I went upstairs to our second-floor bedroom, which has north facing windows. It was a lovely evening, with calm air. The curtains were not yet drawn and the windows wide open. I was looking out over Headington. To my right, on a bearing of about 20 degrees I saw something in the sky. It was at about the height one might see a helicopter, but the light was wrong. Instead of a single bright spot, and usually flashing, it was very red, and diffuse, rather like a fire. However, hot air balloons do not fly at night. Also, I then noticed it was moving, far faster than something driven by the wind, but not nearly as fast as a projectile like a shooting start. I would estimate it initially as somewhere like over Bury Knowle Park. However, it began to move East, or but also getting closer, so more like SE, as if approaching the end of Lime Walk. As it did so it appeared to get a little lower, and the brightness flickered and faded. Then when roughly due north of me it went out altogether, also looking as if it may have gone behind a cloud, which was strange as that evening there was little cloud, and it was high. It did not make sense.
Reflecting on what on earth it could have been I continued to look out, and could see some of the brighter stars. Then much to my amazement I saw more to my left, as if about over Stapleton Road towards the lower end, a grey ‘blob’. Its place was on the trajectory of the previous object I had seen. There was now no light, and quite low. The object’s size was difficult to judge, as I was not certain how far away it was. However, about 2m diameter would be an estimate. Grey in colour, but then it was dusk. Its shape was not stable, basically spherical, but it was quivering slightly, and somewhat wispy, but moving far faster than the air. It was slowly descending, but its horizontal progress was about 10 times it’s downward speed. It carried on, in an ESE or perhaps SE direction, looking as if it were heading to come down close to Old Road, perhaps near the end of Valentia Road, or a bit nearer. However, it then disappeared from view.
The whole sighting lasted about 5 minutes, with a gap of about 1 minute in the middle when I could not see it.

Low Flying Brightly Lit Craft-Foxholes, Bruern, Oxfordshire, UK-19 October 2019

Location Of Sighting :
Foxholes, Bruern, Oxfordshire, UK
Date Of Sighting :
19 OCT 2019
Time:
19:39
Witness Name:
Hol
Witness Statement
Upon exiting Foxholes woods to an adjoining meadow, walking towards the track back to the main road, I and one other person witnesses what we initially thought was a bright star. However, the light grew brighter and brighter, and seemed to be an aircraft, with a light on each “wing”, which seemed to bank towards us. It flew approx 100-200m above the ground, at a low speed. Didn’t show up on any flight radar, though that’s common for military craft. Clear, but quiet considering the altitude, sounds of jet engines (anyone in the area would be familiar at least with what a jet engine sounds like considering the proximity of bases like RAF Brize Norton and RAF Fairford withings a small number of miles). The aircraft had a seemingly triangular, but because of the dark conditions, hard to discern shape. Aside from the brilliantly and hard to look at front light, and the two wingtip lights, the back seemed to be adorned with a big array of lights, roughly 16 or so, of varying colour, but consistent slightly dim brightness. It travelled south east, a heading of roughly 165.

3 Slow Moving Bright Lights- Wallingford, Oxfordshire -13th August 2019

Witness Statement
On retiring to bed,using the bathroom situated at the back of my house that faces onto fields and countryside and is west facing, I noticed a very bright stationary light across the field. Opening the window, I saw another two identical lights(a little less bright) to the left of it (these were set apart and about five inches apart from the main light and higher up on the horizon) None of them was against the sky, all were not far from the ground, and all round in shape with irregular edges of lights.The first light was the brightest and fluctuated from bright white to dimmer and had flickering red/orange lights about it. The other two lights were moving slowly and then one moved up very quickly. I could not believe my eyes. At that moment I started to feel unwell and have a panic attack, I went to my bedroom and stayed awake most of the night unable to sleep. What is disturbing is that this is not the first time I have seen similar lights in the same location and been too scared to report it. I thought maybe that the lights could be a combine harvester working late but this does not explain the identical lights higher up to the left, or maybe railway work – also not applicable with the light location. On another occasion there were three similar lights and they were silent, moved erratically but in straight lines and at high speed far too quickly for a car and then suddenly disappearing. No sounds for any sightings.The hills just beyond to the left are the Chilterns and the Ridgeway so I’m not sure if this bares any significance. I feel very unsettled by seeing these.
