Location of Sighting: Sowerby Bridge, west Yorkshire
Date of Sighting: 28/07/12
Witness Name: Alexander McCune
Witness Statement: I spotted a very bright light in the sky (looking south) it seemed to be quite low, like if it were a plane, I would’ve thought that it was quite low. It hung in the sky for a few seconds and it was shimmering, white light. By the time I alerted my friend who was also in the garden it had started to disappear, like it was flying away from us, into the night sky. My friend also saw the same phenomenon, we were both transfixed, watching this ‘thing’ zip off into space.
The shocking thing, to me, was how low and bright it seemed at first, only to disappear as if flying away. Quite amazing, we really felt like we’d witnessed something quite odd, unexplainable.
