Location of Sighting: Great Staughton, Cambs
Date of Sighting: April 12 1979
Witness Name: Steve
Witness Statement: I was 6 at the time but need to tell the world of our sighting as this is inprinted in our memories. we were driving home from kimbolton towards Great staughton when i saw it on the right hand side of the car over a field. it was HUGE oval in shape, grey in colour, whith what i can only describe as black square windows or panels at intervals around the middle of it. I saw it first as i was looking out the window, my dad then saw it as he was driving and it was on the right side. my mum in the passenger seat couldnt see it as she strained to look. as we watched it for felt like a few seconds we memorised clearly what it was we were looking at as it was just exceptional. All of a sudden it accelerated in a blink of an eye, so so quickly to a higher altitude where it paused for the same amount of time a milisecond then qucik as nothing ive ever seen move it was gone. I would love to hear from anyone had a close encounter like this as i thinkl if we had cameras and mobile phones back then this sighting would be one if not the proof that these things are out there and really do exsist and its something we will never ever forget.
