Fareham, Hampshire-28th November 2008

Location of Sighting: Fareham,Hampshire
Date of Sighting: 28th November 2008
Time: 5.30pm (lasted 10-15minutes)
Witnesses: Name withheld at request of witness.

Witness Statement: i had been at work outside in the rain all day due to a refit of our merchants yard. i was going to stay on and complete the job.i stopped at about 5pm for a break and panned the sky to see which way the clouds were moving.if it was going to rain again i was going to call it a day.over to the right it was all cloud cover slowly moving away.as i turned 180dgs it gradually cleared but was not completely clear but enough to see the stars of the early evening.i was surprised to see a bright white light above the warehouse next to our unit.i could see a light behind it not as bright but moving towards me at a slow speed.i first thoughtit was two planes in formation but therewas no wobble or variation in the flight path .i then realised that they were not displaying any navigation lights.as the lights were heading my way i decided to watch as it would fly above my head and i could see what it was.as the first light passed a star the star was obscured after a few seconds i realised that the object must be one solid object and not two as first thought.as the rear light passed the star it became visible again.the happened once more.this didnt make sense as it must have been massive in size.i got so excited as it was coming over as there was no sound.i am used to seein light aircraft at this location and can here them even at about 2 miles away.as it was directly above me the shape of it became visible and i was astonished to see what i can only describe as a cigar shape or similair to a submarine.there were no other lights other than i have described already .no cabbin,no wings,no noise.i could clearly make out the curveture of the fuselage as it went over me.i was searching my brain for an explanation but was not getting any answers.i looked at the bus depot in front of me desperate for a witness i could call out to but there was nobody about.the vehicle flew directly over my head over the bus depot shed and headed towards the cloud cover i have previously described.as the light at the front headed into the clouds it faded and went out ,this made the shape stand out as it went throught the cloud.the clouds were lapping round the object as it passed throught.as the rear light passed throught the cloud it dimmed and it was gone.guageing the size i would say that the bus depot garage is about 250 foot long.the object was one and a half the lenght of this at the altitude of the rainclouds i have since found are approx 600-800 ft above ground level.this vehicle would then have to be 500-600 ft in lenght if it were on the ground.i have been reluctant to report this because of ridicule but the trusted people i have told know me & my character & that i am honest.the following week i saw the tail end of it again at the same location on a slightly different flight path but only to see the last quarter of it again sail throuhgt the clouds.a sighting of about 10 seconds.i ran into my office and phoned my partner who lives in gosport to go outside into the back garden &pann the sky .she witnessed with her son the object. someone must have seen this .is this military,if so,why fly over a built up area at low altitude with no sound and no navigation lights.i am farmiliar with the sky and objects in it .this was no missidentification of somethin explainable .the speed was slower than a light aircraft & faster than a ballon.it certainly wasnt a ballon or blimp as has been sugested.as i say no noise.a blimp make a drone .in anycase if it e-were a blimp it would have to be the size of the hindenburg .i will take this sighting to my grave & cant stop lookin at the sky since.hope maybe someone else saw this & like me didnt want to report it.please help.

  2. UFO Sighting Friday 28th November 2008 5.15pm

    Date of Sighting: Friday 28th November 2008
    Time: Between 5.15pm – 5.25pm
    Description: Huge structured craft, no wings visible, resembling an airship, two white lights front and back, but no anti-collision/navigation lights, flying silently in the dark, traveling from west to east in the direction of Berks/Hants

    I decided to do some research today because Friday will be the sixth anniversary of my sighting, I typed in the date of the event followed by the word UFO hoping that someone else may have also seen something over British airspace at that time?

    I was amazed to find a Witness Statement on this web site, which is strikingly similar (almost identical in many respects) to my sighting!

    During the night in question I was alone traveling westbound along the A4 road, descending down a long hill that leads into the village of Cherhill.
    I noticed what I thought was an unusual star constellation in the western sky, the two stars were in a vertical formation (one star stacked upon another); suddenly I realized the two stars where were travelling in my direction and to my amazement were part of a structured (‘nuts and bolts’) craft!

    I tried to make sense out of what I was seeing as it passed almost overhead
    The object did not appear to have wings or any form of propulsion or engine, it was completely silent and the night was still with no wind.

    As it glided over I thought the only aircraft that matched its cigar-shaped body would be a large airship. I got the impression the craft was travelling at quite a high altitude, yet it still looked huge in the sky; it’s impossible to put an estimate on the length.

    It had a single glowing white light on the front and back of the fuselage. From my position the lights appeared vertical as the object approached, this suggests that the craft was unusually large and/or travelling at an angle with the front higher than the rear forming what I thought were two stars. The craft did not have any anti-collision (winker/navigation) lights, which was also very unusual!

    At that moment I believed I was looking at something extraordinary. I jumped into the car and raced eastwards up the A4 hoping that I might be able keep it in sight; disappointingly it quickly disappeared into the night sky, the white lights were nowhere to be seen?

    The object was heading in an east or southeast direction towards the counties of Berkshire/Hampshire

    I phoned my partner excitedly and left a message on her mobile as the craft flew over, I just needed to share it with someone. I phoned three other people shortly afterwards, frustratingly I was the only witness; for the most part I have kept this experience close to my chest and have never reported publically until today.

    It is beyond reasonable doubt that we both saw the same or similar object on the same day and time period over Southern England.

    Could our sightings have a prosaic explanation? If you plot the flight path on a map between Cherhill and Fareham the object would have travelled approximately 52 miles in fifteen minutes at a speed of 208mph. The C-130 Hercules (based at nearby Lyneham at the time) had a top speed of 357mph, could this provide an explanation?

    I have stated that I did not see any wings, could this have been because there weren’t any red/white anti-collision lights on the wing tips and therefore my mind perceived it as a cigar shape?

    The independent Witness Statement clearly supports my initial observation of a cigar-shaped craft, which they watched for between 10-15 minutes, this casts doubt on it being a conventional airplane.

    I am completely familiar with the drone of a Hercules aircraft, however this object was completely silent, this is what made the sighting so surreal and unfamiliar. Could atmospheric conditions account for no sound? I am still scratching my head!

    The blimp theory does not work very well; the Goodyear’s 2014 sate-of-the-art airship has a top speed of 73mph and therefore could not travel 52 miles in 15 minutes. Also I cannot imagine that any airship would be granted permission to travel across the country in the dark without adequate lighting.

    The bottom line is that we are two people who have been independently driven to speak out about what we considered was an unidentified unconventional aircraft. Our testimony corroborates each other’s statements and presents a stronger (multi-witness) case; I am more convinced we saw something of high strangeness. I have more information regarding this sighting but I am keeping this statement brief. Please note I can produce records/documentation that proves I saw this object on the same date/time as the other witness.

    I would greatly appreciate it if the original witness could contact me

    For anyone else please do not hesitate to email me if you have any information regarding this sighting
