Location of Sighting: Sutton bridge
Date of Sighting: 05 June 2012
Time: 02:30 am
Witness Name: Chris Gilbert
Witness Statement: I was awoken by some barking dogs at approx 2:30 am. The barking was incessant; this lead me to get out of bed and take a look out of the window. As I peered into the sky I noticed what looked like a dun-coloured planet. I thought this looked odd so I put on my eye glasses to aid my inspection. It was then that, to my disconsolation, the sphere appeared to be moving toward me. I felt uneasy about this as I also noticed a rather disturbing humming noise coming from outside. I decided to return to bed, but was weirdly compelled to remain watching the airborne sphere. I realised that the barking which had awoken me had ceased, but that the strange humming was growing louder. I wondered if the whole village had been woken by the humming. The sphere was still moving towards me, but very slowly. As I stood transfixed by this spectacle I realised I was suffering from a kind of apoplexy. I then wondered if I was actually asleep. I had the idea that if I looked behind me, I woul see myself lying in bed; but I could not turn my head or move my body. The next thing I was conscious of was waking in my bed, with aching limbs. My body felt as if it had been involved in some very strenous exercise. I figured I must have had a bout of somnambulance combined with the bizarre UFO dream. Later that morning, upon leaving my house, I was confronted by an excitable neighbour who asked if I had happened to see the weird ball in the sky early in the morning? I asked if it was accompanied by a weird humming. He confirmed that it was. I asked if he felt unable to physically move during the episode. He said he was, but that he knew it wasn’t a dream as the experience had happened to him before and he had spoken to other people in the neighbourhood like me to whom the same thing happened.
