Dark Rugby Ball Shaped Object-Walderslade, Chatham, Kent-7th September 2019

Location Of Sighting :
Walderslade, Chatham, Kent, UK
Date Of Sighting :
7th September 2019
Time:
19:50
Witness Name:
Peter S
Witness Statement
I was sitting in my bedroom when I saw out of the window a dark rugby ball/American football shape appearing to move slowly in the direction of my house. I rushed to the window to film it, but I accidentally missed the record button on my phone (yes, I am aware this sounds like a silly lie, but I want to report it regardless).
As I thought I was filming, I zoomed in and saw on the screen of my phone that there was a rugby ball shaped white light on the underside of the object, which gave the object the appearance of a black ring with a white centre.
The white light could not be seen with the naked eye,and only showed up when I zoomed in on the image on the screen.
As the object passed over the top of my house, and I pressed the button to stop recording, I noticed that it actually started the recording instead of ending it. I was, and am, utterly gutted that I messed it up and can only hope someone else saw it too.
The sky was orange at the time, and I live in a populated area. Surely someone else saw this too and managed to record it.

Margate, Kent-16th May 2009

Date of Sighting: 16th May 2009
Time: 11.30 pm
Witness: Sharon Spencer

Witness Statement: There were three orange balls of light that looked like upside down jelly fish at really low level, it was a really still night and the objects were silent, as they disappeared over my neighbours house, i went out the front to see where they went and another followed at low level, they moved slowly and went higher,so the appearence was more like an orange ball, they went over the sea and gradually fadded into the distance, has this been reported by anybody else, we are wandering what it was, it was me and daughter that saw them at the lower level and got my husband out of bed when they went out the front so he also witnessed the orange balls that made no noise.

Brands Hatch, Kent-May 4th 2009

Location of Sighting: Brands Hatch, Kent
Date of Sighting: 4th May 2009
Time: 00-20hrs
Witness: Martyn Holt

Witness Statement: At 00-20hrs on 4th May 2009 I was at work doing my job as a Security Guard near Brands Hatch when I saw 10 bright orange balls moving silently in an Easterly and then South Easterly direction. It was obvious they were not Aeroplanes because they had no flashing lights on them and they were orange when they were coming towards me , when they were level with me and after they had passed me. I was totally amazed as I have never seen anything like this before in my life. They were in 3 rows of 3 and one coming up the rear as if trying to catch the others up. Unfortunately when I tried to video them with my mobile phone all I got was a photo of what could be the Moon. I reported it to the Police at Maidstone who said nobody else had phoned in about them. Was that just for my benefit or Did anyone else really see them. I know someone in Benfleet Essex saw them because I rang the Sun Newspaper to report it to them and they asked how far I was from Benfleet because someone there had rung them too!

Maidstone, Kent-2nd May 2009

Location of Sighting: Maidstone, Kent, UK (clear sky & bright 1/3 moon)
Date of Sighting: 2nd May 2009
Time: 23:39 hrs
Witness: Simon R

Witness Statement: Near Penenden Heath, I saw a shooting star then a few seconds later a bright red light coming from the Town Centre direction. Distance was impossible to calculate, but appeared to be a few thousand feet? As the first one came closer, two more appeared from the same direction. While all three were in site, the first one dropped a small speck of light that travelled in a straight line to the ground ) disappearing behind houses etc). All three travelled the same flight path and despite being an irregular path kept perfect sync. Over the next 30 minutes 6 others also appeared on the same flight path.

None had flashing lights and unlike any civil or even military aircraft, whether they were coming towards you or going away, the light remained constant. No plane could move like they did (changing direction & stopping) and any plane and especially helicopter would be easily heard at that distance, yet they made no sound.

I am one of those who has always thought the idea of UFO’s was a great idea, but never took it seriously. I am convinced that what I saw last night was not normal or easily explainable.

Kind regards,
Simon R.

Isle of Sheppey, Kent-15th April 2009

Location of Sighting: Isle of Sheppey, Kent
Date of Sighting: 15th April 2009
Time: 19:15
Witness: Mark T

Witness Statement: I was standing at my backdoor, making tea, when i heard a sound like a jet but lower in pitch. Looking skyward due south I saw 2 pitch black objects like an apple pip (round and with a point to the back) side by side. One seemed to slightly increase/ decrease in size a few times & then roll under its neighbour. Direction wise they were roughly heading to Benfleet in Essex. I know this is usually a plane flight path, but all the planes i’ve seen on this route I could identify them by their shape & pale colour~ these definitly weren’t.
