Location of Sighting: North Oxford
Date of Sighting: 26 September 2014
Time: 10pm to 10:30pm
Witness Name: Jane Rumbold, Matthew Rumbold and Diana Gardner
Witness Statement: We were cycling home from Headington to Cutteslowe along the cycle track of the Northern Bypass last night between 10pm to 10:30. There was a thin layer of cloud. We saw a bright rounded light behind the clouds ahead of us (like the moon) but with a vertical beam shining straight down. This caught our attention and we watched the light closely. The light then quickly split into two and disappeared sideways completely for about three seconds before reappearing again. We then saw a circle of lights shining around the object and moving inwards. The light then flashed and went off.
We went to the nearest park now (27th September) to see if we could see it again and it is there again! It is not as clear as last night and there is no down beam tonight but there are still circular lights which appear around it and which also occasionally forms a halo like ring moving to the centre, the light then brightens and disappears completely for a few seconds. It is a light in the sky north of Oxford. I have never seen anything like it before.
