Witness Statement
UFO sighting 22 October 10.25
This is about the strange experience I had last night. Put simply I went out to look at the meteor shower that was supposed to happen last night as I love shooting stars. I did however see UFO and afterwards wrote down all I saw immediately after the event mainly because twenty years ago I saw a UFO but failed to write about what I saw and made a promise to myself if anything happened again like this I would write it down with times and a description and time line and where it came from and went to so that in the future I would not doubt myself about what I observed.Here is my true story as I see it using the notes and drawings I made within 10 minutes of the UFO disappearing. I do know others will find this all hard to believe but I do not care I know what I saw. I saw an unidentified flying object in the night sky the object was made of small white lights in the shape of a 2 d chevron which I drew 2 minutes after the sighting.

Before the event and weather conditions

I was watching UEFA on BT sport and decided to go onto my patio to watch for shooting stars I paused the television, put on a coat, hat and gloves as it was a cold clear night. I also moved a patiio chair to a good position to maximise the amount of night sky I could see. I also put the back of the chair into a reclining position so I would be comfortable I did think about my binoculars but decided not to use them because shooting stars come and go so quickly you could blink and miss them and binoculars are only useful in a small area of sky and also seeing a shooting star live is wonderous. The patio was dark as no lights were shinning from either of my neighbours houses or from mine as the curtains were drawn and the kitchen light was off. As mentioned the sky was clear but in patches there was a hazy very light mist high in the atmosphere which gave a dull red glow which is to be expected as I live north of Birmingham and the light pollution is always there. I was confident I would see any shooting stars especially in the north where there is countryside. I set the chair in a position facing north by north east which I have now checked with a digital compass.

The Event
I settled down in the chair scanning the night sky hoping to see the shooting stars and waiting for my eyes to get their night vision which took about 6 to 8 minutes I must admit I was a bit disappointed that no shootings stars appeared. Then as I turned my head slightly to the right I saw the lights moving through the sky in a perfect chevron shape Although my drawing shows lines the shape was outlined in small dot like lights with a couple of gaps in the right wing of the chevron. MY feeling at the time was is it real so I shut my eyes and opened them the shape was still there and moving in the same direction. I then slapped my face but it was still there moving in a northerly direction by this time I was sitting up. I then stood and walked nearer my fence up looking up as the shape was moving away, again I squeezed my eyes shut and when I opened them it was still moving away then after a couple of seconds it just faded away. I was left with my mouth wide open wondering what had I just wittnessed. I must admit I was delighted that I had seen a UFO.I then rushed in the house found a pen and book and made a rough drawing of the shape I saw. I then scribbled notes about the experience which you have now read. My notes were very scrappy and I will keep them.I then sat down reflecting on what I had just seen and narrowed it down to two possibilities. The first one is it was man made, maybe an experimental stealth aircraft if so wow. The second it was a extraterestial craft. What I can’t reconcile why were the lights left on I do not think a craft from many light years away would leave the lights on for people to see. I did laugh to myself trying to envision the commander giving someone a bollocking for leaving the lights on. I am certain it was not an illusion

Birmingham-8th August 2009

Location of Sighting: Birmingham
Date of Sighting: 8/8/09
Time: 2200-2230
Witness Name: Neil

Witness Statement: while talking to neighbours over the fence my other half spotted something in the sky.it was an orange ball,like it was a fireball or burning at least ,it had no tail ,it didnt flash,kept the same direction(i believe to be south westerly)-and speed until out of sight almost on the horizon,i think it was at about the same height as a cruising plane(about 30-40,000ft) but must of been much larger than a plane(there was a plane in the sky aswell at the time) it took about 5 mins to go from over our heads to out of sight above the horizon.it definately wasnt a plane,and dont think it was a comet as it had no tail and was lit too consistantly,and definately wasnt a chinese lantern as it moved tooconstantly in the same direction and never changed speed.there were 6 witnesses in total including myself.

Birmingham-8th August 2009

Location of Sighting: Birmingham
Date of Sighting: 08-08-2009
Time: 21:30 approx
Witness Name: Mark

Witness Statement: Whilst out in my garden on Saturday evening, I witnessed five bright orange lights moving quickly through the sky.First there was a formation of three lights, all three glowed a bright orange colour and where moving quickly through the sky. The first two glowed brightly all the time but the third one changed to red as it got closer to my location and it also got dimmer as though it was either changing to some sort of stealth mode or it was climbing higher in the sky. About a minute after the first three lights went past my house two more objects flew towards my house. They appeared to be travelling at the same height and speed as the first three that I saw, the one that was at the back caught up with the one in front, it passed the one in front flying very close to it, and as it overtook it also changed colour to red and got dimmer as though it was either changing to some sort of stealth mode or climing higher in the sky. The whole incident lasted for about three minutes but it seemed more like five. All five objects were circular in shape and from a distance they looked like large fireballs, but the way they moved in the sky they were definitely some sort of craft.
