Witness Statement
Taking some pics of the moon in a wide open space and checking the stars out. Put my camera phone in my pocket and noticed something move in the corner of my eye and imediatley thought a satalite was starting to flare. Then was shocked with awe at what i witnessed. First i was baffled and thought it was a formation of fighter planes. the fleet was 3 sets on 5 lights in a V formation. They seemed to move across the sky from directly above me then towards the horizon in perfect formation as if the 5 lights were one object. These formations seemed to slightly curve to the left but they all did so in perfect sync as if the whole thing was joined together. then the front light of the far right formation gathered speed and proceeded to zoom across to the left in a smooth zizag atleast 5 times the original speed. This is where im starting to grab my camera and try getting it ready in time, so not sure what this light does after that. The objects where a dim orange color, like the diffused glow from a street lamp. They were all a circular shape and almost seemed slightly see through. Like under the glow was nothing. I can only guess how high the objects where and id say somewhere around the alltitude of an airliner would cruise. Maybe 30 thousand feet up. The speed before one of the objects broke formation looked the speed of a fighter jet would fly at. While all this happend, i grabbed my camera phone and managed to grab it and take a shot just as they were going out of view because of the high trees about 50 feet infront of me. Its a blackberry camera fone and the snapshot dosnt show anything. Too much noise on the photo and it looks very dark, alot darker than it actually was, but im going to run it through photoshop. I also started a video after the photo, hoping something else was in the sky because i had a large field of view. Also like to point out the objects passed over leeds/bradford international airpor t which is about 2 miles has the crow flys right behind me. And they travelled in a southern direction curving slightly towards a south/south east. Also not any type of sound, it was very quiet night. Id also like to point out i always check the skys out and im familiar with satalites chinease lanterns and all types of aircraft as i live on the approach path to LB international airport. What i seen was either something advanced out military or someones military has or i watched something special from another ?? BTW my fone video has the sound effects of someone astonished, bewilderd, excited, stunned, confused. The whole experience looked like something from a movie and lasted between 10-20 seconds, the last 5 wasted messing with a fone while glimsing back and forth. Im now investing in some kind of cam capable of filming at night 😕

Leeds-21st August 2009

Location of Sighting: Leeds
Date of Sighting: 21/08/09
Time: 23.08
Witness Name: John Ward

Witness Statement: I was standing on Brussells St. just outside Leeds City Centre speaking with my son on the telephone, when I observed a bright orange glow travelling slowly from the West of the city, passing directly over the city centre and continuing to the east of the city. The object passed almost directly overhead and made a slight deviation in its course as it passed overhead. My colleague David Walker said he observed some type of tail plane as the object made its maneouvre. There was no apparent engine noise as it passed. My opinion was that the glow cast no visible beam of light and was about 20-30 times as bright as Venus. As the object travelled away from us it was visible for a further 2 minutes or so before it suddenly vanished from view as opposed to just fading away.

Date of Sighting: Mon 17th August 2009
Time: 21:30pm
Witness Name: Penny Metcalf

Witness Statement: Large orange object moving quickly alongside fields at the back of our house; parallel to M621. Witnessed by myself & 11 year old son from the living room. Looked like a hot air balloon, but more transparent with flames. Ran upstairs to try and look out of the front bedroom window but it had disappeared. My 6 year old son was crying as he had seen it go past his bedroom window and was scared. I said it was a hot air balloon. He said it didn’t have a basket underneath it. It was moving very quickly quickly reached a high altitude.

Harewood House, near Leeds-16th August 2009

Location of Sighting: Harewood House, nr Leeds
Date of Sighting: 16th August 2009
Time: 00:15 – 00:30
Witness Name: T J Gilson

Witness Statement: My wife & I were at a festival at Harewood House at the weekend and as we were walking back to our tent we saw a bright orange/red circular object travelling from the Western horizon across at about 45 degrees then continue towards the Eastern horizon before fading away. This was followed by another identical object about ten minutes later going in the same direction as before. No sound at all, but very fast, given its apparent height and distance covered. This is the first time I have ever come across this web site, and I am amazed that so many people appear to have seen what we both saw that night. This was also witnessed by several other people we were talking at the time that night. Apart from occasional meteor shower (like last week), I/we have never witnessed anything like this before – amazing!

Rawdon, Leeds, West Yorkshire-15th August 2009

Location of Sighting: Rawdon, Leeds, West Yorkshire
Date of Sighting: 15/08/2009
Time: 9.25pm
Witness Name: Sandra and Dave W

Witness Statement: My husband and I saw three flying objects travelling from the SW to NE at speed. They were definitely not normal aircraft. My husband thought the first one was a helicopter at first and expected to hear a rumble as it went overhead. As there was no sound he went outside and called me to have a look. The object moved very quickly. It was travelling above cloud level. A second one followed. You could see the light as it approached. A pinkish orange light similar to the headlight on a helicopter. It was travelling on the same path as the first about 40 seconds later. Then we saw a third approaching. We watched this one carefully as it went overhead. When it was directly above us it seemed circular. The base of the object was hard to focus on and the best way to explain the effect is to describe it as looking through a heat haze No bright light was visible from underneath but there were colours, possibly smaller lights, showing through the haze. We have never seen anything like this before.
