Location of Sighting: Whitehouse carpark, Blackstone Edge, Littleborough, Lancs, UK
Date of Sighting: 4/6/2010
Time: 20:00 Approx. (day Light)
Witness Name: Andrew Hope
Witness Statement: I was sat in my car watching the Sun set and admiring the view, when I thought “look to the right” (towards Tod.). I looked and this small black dot just appeared way up in the sky. Imagine seeing a fly about 10 feet away. This object then proceeded to suddenly move from left to right over a large distance at great speed, It then moved up and down in a zig zag pattern, this lasted for a couple of minutes and then moved off and out of sight slowly. I sat in my car, amazed. I had a great feeling of un-realness, almost dream like. My logical brain said it was a bird combined with an optical illusion caused by atmospheric conditions. After a few minutes passed I looked right again, when it just reappeared out of nowhere, again I watched it’s amazing manouvers, and I’m thinking is that really a bird, when it stopped dead still and I thought birds cant do that, can they? So I said, outloud to myself, “ok, do something I know a bird can’t do”, when it just vanished instantly. Wow. I’m thinking, now a little freaked out. I looked at my dash board digi clock, not sure of the time, it said 1:11. it was right the last time I lokked and it was still light, so I looked at my mobile and it was actually 8pm.
I have been intersted in astronomy for years and have seen everything one normally see’s in the sky, it was not a plane, helicopter, bird, sattellite, chinese lantern. It was daylight and it was a definate physical object of unkown type, displaying amazing moves. I’m still a little shocked, as I’m not sure why I drove up ther in the first place, I just felt I should. Maybe I was meant to be there. I felt an overwhelming sense of calm and excitement at the same time and an even greater sense of connection. It was like some sort of communication, which I truly can’t explain. It is a true account of my experience, that I just needed to share.
