Location of Sighting: Retford, Nottinghamshire
Date of Sighting: Friday 03 September 2010
Witness Name: David W
Witness Statement: I took the dogs out into the garden and noticed the sky was rather clear, my wife commented on the fact that the next day should be another good one. It was then I observed a moving light in the sky. First thoughts a satellite, but it was too big and bright to be such and moving unlike a satellite would. Next was it a plane as were are on the commercial flightpath for aircraft going to and from Robin Hood Airport, however this light was extremely bright, brighter than any normal aircraft and there were no other lights, like you owuld expect from conventional craft, no wing or undercarraige flashing lights, plus there was total silence, no aircraft sound.
It was travelling in a south easterley direction. Suddenly it stopped and hovered for 2 to 3 minutes before starting off again and as it did so its light went out, simply tunred off like we would turn off a house light switch.
Was it a UFO or yet another military craft?
