Nottinghamshire-17th December 2013

Location of Sighting: Nottinghamshire
Date of Sighting: 17/12/13
Time: 1600hrs
Witness Name: Steve

Witness Statement: Travelling home from the direction of Ollerton southbound on the A614, I was approaching Rufford Park, and noticed in the dusk sky a super bright stationary light in a clear sky, off to my right , appears to be a few 100ft up , in the south west sky, motionless.
I have seen stars and planets in the sky , but this was different .
Not a helicopter, or a Chinese lantern.
When I arrived home, approx. 10 mins later, I looked again , the sky was dark now and it was still there and just as bright, in the same position.
I went upstairs to take a photo and it had gone ?
I have checked the sky again in that area, nothing, no bright stars in that section of sky ?

  1. Venus is a brilliant object in the evening sky in the direction you describe. You won’t be the first – or the last – to think it’s only a few hundred feet in the air.

  2. Despite your last sentence, this sounds very much like Venus.

  3. Hi Steve,

    Planet Venus? Maybe?

    Hope this is of help..

    Best Wishes,

  4. Hi Steve,
    I echo everyone else – it sounds like the planet Venus to me! -Paul

  5. Hi all, thanks for your comments, I will do some research regarding Venus, many thanks for that !
    I have always thought we cannot be alone in the sheer vastness of space, I have had 2 other experiences of ufo in my lifetime, one when younger and my parent witnessed this also, we both acknowledge it did happen, but have only spoke of it a couple of times and only to each other for fear of ridicule, and the other one evening a few years ago when hearing noises outside, thought it may have been some shed robbers, froze to the spot and unable to make sense of what I saw.


  6. This is what you’ve seen, my friend has been recording it for the last 2 weeks

    Still think it’s venus?????????
