North Somercotes Lincolnshire-9th September 2013

Location of Sighting: North Somercotes lincolnshire uk
Date of Sighting: 9th September 2013
Time: Afternoon
Witness Name: Ben and Alfie Jackson

Witness Statement: My sons aged 9 and 7 came home from school today and told me all about 2 flying saucers they’d seen in the sky over the woods. They described one as a disk with a glass dome on top and lights around it and the second Ben (9yr old) told me it was like a star. The typical saucer shaped one was spotted and the star like one flew in from behind cloud, they hovered around for a little while and flew off across the sky. I was a little dubious but then they told me several other children witnessed it and a teacher. Ben also heard the teacher tell a colleague about the sighting. They have both drawn me pictures separately and they tie in pretty well. I plan on speaking to the teacher in the morning.

  1. Hi

    Good to hear that a child’s account has been listened to. I received my first book on ufos from my grandmother nearly 50 years ago when I was about 9. She used to see them all the time of course. But that is another story.

    Anyway it was a good solid account of all the known sky objects and phenomena that could be mistaken for something unidentifiable. An excellent grounding and I spent the rest of my life debunking myself every time I thought I had seen something remarkable.

    Then one October night in 2010 while observing the Andromeda Nebula through binoculars a boomerang shaped object appeared in my field of view. It was blacker than the surrounding sky and lined with circular warm-yellow lights. I tracked its rapid silent flight down into the permanent S. London haze. I went on to see twenty such objects over the following two years. Nothing so dramatic recently though.

    Which really is a complete digression from my question to you which is did you catch up with the other witnesses?

    Looking forward to news.


  2. Hi there,
    This is a really good sighting – observed by several children and a teacher, (who also told his/her colleague).
    To me, this is a really credible one – as to what was exactly going on, I have absolutely no idea at present!!
    The idea of them doing independent pictures is a really good one and would help to tie it in even more. -Paul

  3. How do kids of that age know the term flying saucer? Hope I’m wrong but I’m deeply suspicious of this report. Sounds awfully reminiscent of the South Wales incident.

  4. Reminiscent of that other sighting by school children at their school in the 60’s / 70’s. What has happened since, I’m sure the local BBC News would have a filed day with this?

  5. Not wishing to be facetious, but I wonder if these children – or some of them – have watched a film featuring something such as this lately? Imagination can be pretty vivid at this young age.
