Location of Sighting: Oxford
Date of Sighting: 1 August 2017
Time: 4:00 a.m. onwards
Witness Name: Katherine and Gerald
Witness Statement: This morning, at 4:00 a.m. I had been working late and was just going to bed when I glanced out the window and saw what, at first, I thought must be the morning star. However, on watching it, I realised that it was too big for this and also noticed that it was moving very slightly. At first it was hovering just above the trees in my view, but then I saw it move slightly downwards and then upwards and realised that it could not be a star. I opened the window to see if it might be a plane coming in, but there was no sound. In any case it was round in shape, did not appear to have a centre, but consisted of rays of light which radiated out from a centre point, like the large spokes of a wheel. Gradually it ascended higher into the sky and then continued to hover there in one place. I realised that it could not be a plane of any sort as it was not moving or making a noise. I woke my husband so that he could see it and suggest what it might be. We agreed that it was far too big for a star, so all we could think of by way of explanation was a UFO, although I hesitate to say this. As I write, 4:30 a.m., it is still there, hovering over the same trees, but slightly higher than previously. I have no idea what it is. I have taken some photos, but it is some distance away and at a height so they may not show much. I will look at them in the daylight and see what they are like.
