Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire-28th July 2012

Location of Sighting: Sowerby Bridge, west Yorkshire
Date of Sighting: 28/07/12
Time: 00:15
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.

  1. Was it flying in the direction of Lancashire? Please see entry for same date and time. Good luck.

  2. Hi Peter,

    It seemed as if it was flying South/south West? I’m not exactly sure. To be honest it just looked like it was going straight up! I am a sceptic as to what it is we see in the night sky but this was really quite odd, I’ve never seen anything quite like it. It started off very bright and my immediate reaction was that it was a lantern but it was far too bright, bright white light in fact, shimmering. And lanterns don’t suddenly accelerate and disappear into the depths of space.
