Low Hovering Triangular Craft – Ely , Cambridgeshire-11th October 2019

Location Of Sighting :
Ely , Cambridgeshire
Date Of Sighting :
11pm Approx
Witness Name:
Witness Statement
I was staying in a holiday cottage in Ely very close to the Cathedral. About 11 o clock in the evening I became aware of what sounded like a helicopter circling round and round in close proximity. I ignored the noise thinking it was probably a police helicopter , this continued in a persistent manner for about 10 minutes. The sound became very loud and it felt like the aircraft was directly outside of the house. At that point I got up and looked through the window expecting to see a helicopter, what I saw left me completely baffled. Looking up I saw a black aircraft in a triangular shape where the base was covered with multiple small red and white lights. There didnt seem to be a sequence to the position of the lights and one red light seemed to be off set at the bottom end (the lights were not flashing) There were no landing blades or gear to be seen and there was also no strong down draft. The noise of the stationary craft was quiet (more of a whooshing sound) I thought it must be some kind of military craft and was annoyed it was flying so low in a built up public area .The craft then pulled away out of view , so for a few seconds there was nothing and then like some scene from the twilight zone a silent triangular black craft flew slowly into view and positioned itself close to the side of the house, practically slap bang in front of me , where it stopped, tipped slightly backwards , hovered, then moved slowly forward outside of my window view and in the direction of the Cathedral. I was totally mesmerised , I still can’t believe any aircraft could move so slowly and actually stop in midair. The motion was like it was sailing. The craft was made of a glossy black metal that gave the impression of an old fashioned coach build, the depth of the craft wasn’t that deep {about the height of a table) and towards the front there looked like there was a slightly raised dome . You wouldn’t have been able to stand up in it . The back end was flat , rectangular, the top being a right angled edge that then curved inwards towards the base.When I first experienced this sighting I thought I was seeing one craft but as there was a manoeuvre out of view I am now wondering if it was two separate crafts. The craft from above looked like a similar size to a helicopter in length although the shape was triangular. The craft when hovering at the roofline was between my house and the house opposite, therefor size wise it must have been no bigger than 20 feet inlength and the width at its widest part smaller than that. The area where I was looking at the craft was a kind of mews arrangement so there was quite an open area that a craft could potentially navigate or even drop down and lie low undetected.I understand that Ely is close to Lakenheath Airbase so afterwards I tried to go through all the military craft I could find .The closest shape/size wise would be the Taranis Drone however the back end of the craft was nothing like my sighting. If I had only sighted the craft above me I probably wouldn’t have thought too much about the incident but having viewed the object so directly and up close I’m simply dumfounded.

Huge Triangular Craft -Peterborough , Cambridgeshire-20th October 2019

Location Of Sighting :
Peterborough , Cambridgeshire
Date Of Sighting :
20th October 2019
Witness Name:
Martin B
Witness Statement

My friend and myself seen this over our estate in Peterborough cambs, I seen the yellow lights coming over the horizon, thought at first it could be the police helicopter, when it got closer my friend John saw it was triangle in shape and as it approached towards us it was indeed triangular with the bottom of it totally yellow lights, it was no more that 500ft above us and it was completely silent, it was huge and a clear night no clouds not even drizzle.
I panicked a bit and was going to video it but I couldn’t find it on my phone so I took those photos, what was really weird as this thing was right above me and I had it right on my camera but when I took the photo’s although the thing was there I got those strange lights, no idea why just a strange experience, in the past I used to scoff at these things but what we seen was either out of this world or the military have stuff that no one knows about, how something that big can be silent is incredible.

Wyton On The Hill, Huntingdon-August 24, 2008

Location of Sighting: Wyton on the Hill,Huntingdon
Date: August 24, 2008
Time: 01.23hrs
Witness: Un-named
Witness statement: Description: 24th August 2008 – these are the notes that I wrote exactly after the event in the early hours of the morning.

Woke up to go to the toilet, looked out of the landing window and saw lights in the sky, (time about 01.00hrs) the lights were staggered higher to lower moving left in front of me, at the start I thought there was only 6 or so lights but counted at least 14.

I thought at first it was jets but were moving very slowly, so I went downstairs and had a look from the back door which I opened.

The lights continued along their way slowly and without noise for about 5mins.

I then thought they were Helicopters but again that many would have been very load, and they were very close, between Wyton and the sports field which is about 1 mile, the cloud is 10/10 seeing OK, I have never seen anything like this. I managed a couple of photos but they are not very good.

I would judge that the lowest light was lower or at most roof height. Again I would stress that there was absolutely no sound except the traffic on the road.

The wind is blowing right to left (Gusting) the lights moved in a forthright manner very controlled not moving out of station as a controlled unit. The lights were very bright. I have never seen anything like it before.

I would best describe them as orbs of light, in fact I was amazed as the closeness of the flying was fantastic as the main group in two waves was very close together.

The photos I took were the last 2/3 stragglers, (I tried to take video but they would not come out) hence the last min photos – note date/time on camera is wrong.

The time now is 01.57hrs

Temp 22° inside B/P 1018mb Temp out 16°

Note: the lights did not get faster or slower or deviate from their path. A very smooth continues movement. The lights were the same brightness viewed from the “Side” and the “Rear” which is very strange. I must stress that they made no sound.

I tried to take the video from the back door and the photos from the end of the path in the garden; I must admit taking the photos I became very afraid. Why??? Thinking about it I counted 14 in the main two waves, so there must have been at least 18 to 20 lights altogether as there was 3/4 stragglers.

Footnote: I am not a crank or a wishful UFO spotter, I am 40 years old and a former member of the Royal Observer Corps until they were disbanded, and I am also an amateur astronomer who has seen planets, stars and satellites moving around the night sky, I have also seen aircraft at night as the police helicopter is based within a mile of my house, the lights that I saw were orange and have no navigation beacons.

UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness to have a look at the UFO Balloons website to see if this is what might have been seen and received the following reply:

Hello John,

I’ve taken a look at the Video, I would love to say that’s what I saw but no, the lights did not flicker and the wind was very gusty which would have moved them out of formation, also the lights that I saw were oval/round in shape almost like a street lamp.

I have seen these balloon lamps before, I used to fly remote controlled aircraft/gliders etc and a club member had some one night on a free flight night.

I noticed that I am not the only person to have seen these type of lights in our area, if you have a look at this web page you will note that others have seen something similar or the same.

Do you have any idea as to what these things were/are? I suppose that you get loads of crank stuff but I really did see this. I have taken a look at my photos in detail (for what they are worth) and I cannot see as much a shadow let a lone a frame or anything other than the light.

Thanks & best wishes.
