Location of Sighting: Shrewsbury, Shropshire
Date of Sighting: 14.11.12
Witness Name: Darren Perks
Witness Statement: On 14th November 2012 I was at home in the North of Shrewsbury, Shropshire, UK trying out some new photographic and trail camera equipment. My garden faces to the North West and the light is relatively good. The weather was overcast with clouds but no breaks. The wind was approx 10 mph gusting at 15 mph. This image was caputed using a Spypoint Pro X wildlife camera which I had in my hanmds the time. Its a 12mp camera with a range of approx 20 metres but will pick up lights further away if they are bright enough, hence this image.
At approx 2115 hours whilst setting up my new equipment, I noticed 4 white lights at a low altitude moving across the sky from the West to North West and about one mile away from me. As an experienced UFO investigator I started to go through the usual motions of elimation as to what the lights could be. They moved slowly and steady in a North Westly direction but made no irratic movements. They were in a type of formation with 3 of the lights at the front and one behind. No noise at all and no clear structure of any kind. They moved along at about 500 to 700 ft altitude.
Definately not stars as this was below the cloud base which was at about 2000 ft and not aircraft or helicopters form RAF Shawbury as the lights were too big to be any kind of navigation or strobe light. I measured their size at arms length using my thumb as a guide and I estimate they would of been around the size of a large blow up beach ball at that distance but maybe slightly smaller.
Spoke to RAF Shawbury who confirmed that no aircraft were night flying. They advised that 4 other persons had contacted them regarding these lights in the North of Shropshire at about 2130 to 2200 hours. Those reports came in from the Baschurch and Wem areas which are rural communities.
Interesting one this and hopefully others may come forward with reports if they saw the same thing. But one I felt should be shared on the website for reference.
