Further Description of Sighting: I was a child at the time and this object did not seem strange to me, I just thought it was another type of flying object like helicopters etc. I was just outside my house and I heard a buzzing sound which caused me to look up, above me at about the height of the house was a triangular shaped flying object which had approached from an easterly direction.

It was triangular but the front point was rounded and the back had a series of cylinder shaped engine/exhaust type things. It was a silvery grey colour. I saw no lights. As I stood and stared at it, it stopped and hovered above me for about a minute, it then continued on towards the west. I didn’t think it strange or out of place at the time and so did not tell anyone about what I had seen, it was only a few years later when I had learned more about the world that I realised that what I had seen that day was not “normal”.

I have told of this sighting a few times only to be laughed at more often than not, never taken seriously.

What did the UFO look like, shape/size in relation to terrestrial objects/lights/colour :

What I saw was a close (treetop) point of light hovering over a stream. When it zoomed off, I saw a tail exhaust type emission. It was the darkest color of red I had ever seen.

Did the UFO do any strange things like hover and then zoom off quickly :

I was driving along the same gravel road I travel daily. I noticed a point of white light at treetop level. Four things happened at the exact same second. (1) I stopped the car. (2) The point of white light disappeared. (3) The full moon shined on the side of the square vehicle. It reminded me of a metal barn roof. (4) I saw the blood red tail of the vehicle as it sped off in a southeast direction. I waited three weeks before I even told my wife. She is the only person I have ever told before now.

Any additional comments :

For some reason, I knew the instant that I saw it, that it was getting water. I didn’t know the human brain could take in that much information in that short a period of time.

Wirral, England, UK; November, 1987

Name: Helen Miller

Date: 11.87; 17.55

Location: Over a house on the Wirral

What did the UFO look like, shape/size in relation to terrestrial objects/lights/colour: The UFO was a conical shape, with a spiral pattern going all the way around it. It was a red-orange colour, and it seemed that there were flames coming out of it at its widest point. It was about the size of a normal-sized passenger aircraft, and moving at about the same speed. There were no noticable lights on it, other than the afore-mentioned flames.

Did the UFO do any strange things like hover and then zoom off quickly: At one point, when the UFO moved behind a tree, I moved to get a look of it as it came out from behind the tree, which I should have been able to do, but it had vanished completely.

Any additional comments: I know that, as I was only seven when I saw this UFO, it does not sound too plausible. However, my father also saw this UFO, and he was also at a loss to explain it.
