Preston, Lancashire-2nd June 2013

Location of Sighting: Preston, Lancashire
Date of Sighting: 2nd June 2013
Time: 11:57
Witness Name: Laura

Witness Statement: Well, my bedroom is an attic room and I have two large windows facing upwards. I had the blinds open on one of them last night and I was watching tv looking next to the window (wall mounted tv.) Anyway, something caught my eye as I sat up in bed. It had loads of flashing lights, was round was slowly ascending. It was not too far away from me. I mean I don’t believe it ufo’s really but it strikes me as odd. If it was a plane then it would have made noise but this didnt and again wasn’t the shape of a plane. It’s so frustrating because I was so mesmerised watching it that I didn’t have time to grab my iPhone, it’s like my brain switched off for a second. I wasn’t scared but truly facinated by what I had just seen. What was it? Could it have been a circular plane? Will I see it again tonight? I came here to look for recent ufo sightings and I guess decided to share mine. Thanks for reading and sensible comments gratefully recieced. If anyone living in the preston area saw it let me no. Thanks again.

  1. Maybe a chopper from Warton?

  2. Moderator, Preston isn’t in Highlands and Islands. Nero, do you not think Laura may know what a helicopter looks like???

  3. I saw a similar ufo over avenham park on the 18th of May, it was too fast to be a helicopter and too fast to be a plane, and it didn’t sound like either. At first it was just a strangely bright light in the distance, but then it slowly approached us, picking up speed until it flew directly overhead. it was too dark to clearly see the outline but it didn’t look like any aircraft I’ve seen before. When it was closer I could see spinning multicolour lights on the ship, it was hypnotic. Didn’t even occur to me to film it, like you I was too mesmerised by it to think to get out my camera. There were about 10 people with me and they all saw it too, they couldn’t figure out what it was either. Fascinating experience, my first ufo sighting, and hopefully not my last. Preston was literally the last place I was expecting to see a ufo, especially wasn’t expecting anyone else to see anything aswell. Glad I saw this website now 🙂 keep your eyes on the sky!

  5. Peter do you know what a helicopter sounds like!!!

  6. And none of them thought to take an image either. Hmm.

  7. Might have been a UAV out of Warton but would it have a load of lights on it

  8. Peter, I’m Nemo not Nero! Though he could have been a distant ancestor, after all the Geordies made Rome what it was and our old Empire as well,invented Brown Ale and the railways etc – the list is really endless!

    Now seriously. It was 11.57 at night? Therefore 2357? “It had loads of flashing lights, was round was slowly ascending.” There is on YT something that purports to be a UFO on the ground at night, it looks circular with multicoloured lights. It was a rescue helicopter and we had a typical hoax scenario. Not hearing one, well I’ve told this site many times why you sometimes don’t hear aircraft.

    I know helicopters and know what the look like at night, especially when the anti collision beacons are reflecting from the blades and fuselage (Depending on colour) – this could have been an air ambulance or ASR.

    Now Preston sits right below the approach for runway 26 or take off on 080 (could be 30 degrees climb out) for/from Warton. Speculation of what Warton does is all over the net – Typhoon, Taranus etc.

    I think Peter, that if my suggestion irritates you why not contact the low flying desk at Warton and ask them? If its not a helicopter I’ll apologise. Well, do you have your motivation to do this. Of course it could be a real UFO, however I doubt it. Please report back ASAP as we are dying to know. If I’m right, perhaps you will have consideration for my future comments.

  9. Thanks for all the replies, Nemo seems to know what he’s talking about and he’s probably right, it just didnt look like a helicopter or aircraft but what do I know. And why couldn’t I hear it if it was an aircraft? It was 23:57 sorry for the mistake. Gary, I know that you need evidence to believe what I’m saying but would you think to take a picture when your in shock from seeing something out of the ordinary. I don’t know what to think but if it happens again I will try my best to take a clear picture. Thanks again for everyone’s comments.
