Location of Sighting: Durham
Date of Sighting: 12th August 2013
Time: 1245 to 1255
Witness Name: N McSherry
Witness Statement: Saw blinking light in distance from house over shincliffe way. Wife saw it first as see was looking to see shooting stars. After about 5min she ask me if that was a star. It was very clear night and it was way to low in sky to be a star. As it was not moving and we could not here sound we ruled out fixed wing aircraft. I looked at it with binos and it looked triangle shape with lights on bottom and red light going around side. It appeared to be on it side at about 30 deg and a light was coming from it going to the ground. It was at a distance and could not get picture. It then went lower down and we could not see it any more. It was not Chinese latten as we are used to them and was nothing like it in looks or way it worked. Could have been a helicopter but never seen one with lights like that and am sure it had triangle shape to it. Just can not explain it but would love to know if any one closer saw it.
Would say it was in-between sherburn village Durham and high shincliffe durham going out towards bowburn.
