- Dear Jeff,
- Sighting on the 28th February 2002 Time 22.50hrs
- The size of the "flying triangle" was approximately
100feet from the base of the triangle to the apex. The size as was the
overall description was consistent with all witnesses that night. It had
red lights running along the length of the right hand side of the craft
and blue along the left side.
- A large circular light in the middle of the craft that
pulsated in colour from a pale neon blue through to purple. There were
no reports of any noise only a sound which was described as an electric
crackle, similar to being underneath a power pylon when it is wet.
- First Report
- The "craft was first seen at St. Austell in Cornwall
by a hospital doctor out walking his dog. Within minutes it was seen by
several other people as it hovered approximately 200 yards off the shore
at 1,000 ft high. It's speed increased from stationary to 500 mph for
10 miles before doing a right hand turn (sharp 90 degree) without slowing
down. (report by pilot)
- The next report I received was from Somerset from a
couple who at first did not see anything but were drawn to look upwards
by an electric crackling noise. They could not believe their eyes when
they saw the craft hovering above their heads estimated at about 2 to
3,000 feet, the centre light rapidly pulsating. It hovered for about two
minutes maximum before "shooting off" at a tremendous speed in
a easterly direction.
- Second Report
- 22.55 hours from Lyme Regis, Dorset by a retired Coast
Guardsman. His words: "The craft was hovering over the town, no more
than 800 feet I would estimate. At first I thought it was a new prototype
aircraft but was mystified by no sound and the unusual lighting display.
I witnessed it for only a minute at the most before it gained tremendous
speed, no noise, the light underneath pulsating a very pale blue with
a corona around it. It climbed vertically in a matter of seconds, it reminded
me of a Harrier jump jet, I would estimate to a height of 2,000 feet before
it headed in a South Easterly direction."
- Third Report
- From Portland 23.00 hours, Dorset. Policeman and two
other witnesses (statements all describe the craft identically). Once
again hovering, over a set of transmitting aerials at approximately 1
to 2,000 feet. Totally noiseless, only hovered for a minute or two at
the most. The "electric noise" was heard but two witnesses stated
they were not sure if it could have been the military transmitting aerials.
Moved off slowly, almost at a hover speed.
- Fourth Report
- From Hengistbury Head area, Dorset. 23.05 hours. Four
separate witnesses walking and walking their dogs. Height estimated at
about 500 to 600 feet over the sea, this description of height was confirmed
by a fisherman out "dropping his crab pots". Once again, no
noise reported, the navigation lights?? were pulsating like a "rope
light." Only seen for a maximum of two minutes by witnesses. The
craft departed this time by climbing vertically very quickly until it
became about the size of a star and then "blinked out" the witnesses
stated. The interesting thing at this location was that very soon after
the craft started to ascend two jet fighters screamed overhead the witnesses
said. There were a total of 18 witnesses that saw the craft during its
flight path over the South Coast.
- Best regards,
- David Kingston
