Whitworth, Rochdale,Lancashire-21st August 2009

Location of Sighting: Whitworth, Rochdale (Lancashire)
Date of Sighting: 21st August 2009
Time: 3:40am
Witness Name: Adam

Witness Statement: At around 3:40am I heard such an intense sound coming from outside my window on the south side of the house. The wind wasn’t strong and at first it sounded like possibly a loud cat-fight. As the volume kept increasing to a cachendo, when I opened the window it sounded like thousands of missiles flying across the night sky, a backgroud ‘static’ sound and very loud screeching that actually sounded like ships colliding.When I proceeded to wake up family members the sound had deminished, however I took them to the open window. There I saw an Intense light in the sky, almost like a white flaire (Brighter than the moon or any star). It didn’t move at all, then the light shined incredibly bright for a split second before disappearing completley.

I know somthing happened, because less than half an hour later, two spotter planes were on the scene.

Syke, Rochdale-25th July 2009

Location of Sighting: Syke, Rochdale
Date of Sighting: 25/07/2009
Time: 11.30 – 13.15
Witness Name: Debbie & Paul

Witness Statement: Originally saw 3 orange lights following each other in formation. No sound and definitely not any type of aircraft. They were at low level – just above roof tops. We then saw several more at regular intervals all starting from the same direction and then eventually disappearing. We saw about 8 in total. I looked at one through binoculars and it appeared to have a spikes sticking out. At one point one dropped out of the sky completely.

Milnrow, Rochdale-1st January 2009

Location of Sighting: Milnrow, Rochdale
Date of Sighting: 1st January 2009
Time: 12.11am
Witness: Michael Pearson

Witness Statement: I live in the pennine foothills on the outer edge of Dale in the Milnrow district. Conditions. Sub-zero. Nominal cloud cover. Approx 12.11a.m a red/orange (more red than orange) sphere moving on a regualar path from an easterly direction from the pennines disappearing high in the western sky at which point it might have been mistaken for Mars. Followed by six identical objects following a very similar or identical smooth path. Totally silent. Velocity, altitude and size extremely difficult to guage. I gather that sightings are relatively commonplace in these parts but i have never seen anything like it and i try to look up rather than down. Alcohol or drugs were not a factor.
