UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

Late 2001/Early 2002 : Bury, Lancashire, England

Bury Lancashire, England A Circular/Elliptical UFO

Date: Late 2001/early 2002.
Time: N/A.

Sir, I was just looking up UFO sightings in the Bury Lancashire, England area and found a couple of reports and your email address. I would like to tell you about a possible sighting.

I was shocked quite recently, when my elderly aunt (80 year old) introduced UFOs into the conversation. She and her late husband had apparently seen a circular/elliptical object in the sky at the back of there house. This happened around late 2001/early 2002. (My aunt couldn't remember the exact date) initially, the object appeared as a bright light stationary in the sky and my aunt and uncle were curious enough to venture onto their patio to take a closer look. From there, they observed a large,stationary, silent object with colored-orange, pink-lights around it. My aunt suggested it was a plane but was quickly corrected by my uncle who had been an aircraft builder.

He told her that planes don't have lights all round and they certainly can't hover silently. This left the possibility of a helicopter. Do silent ones exist? or a hot air balloon? or an airship? Only one problem, as my aunt and uncle and two neighbors observed the craft, it flew away over the house, faster than anything they had seen. It then paused briefly at the front of the house, before shooting off again at lightning speed. My uncle and aunt were very reluctant to tell anyone for fear of ridicule. However, last month, when my aunt told me, I looked up possible sightings in that area for 2001/2002, and I found a report on a strikingly similar craft being observed by off-duty police officers in the Bury/Rochdale area of England.

Hope this is of interest? Sorry I can't provide pictures/video. My uncle probably would have used his camera, if he hadn't been very poorly (Terminally ill) at the time. All the best.

Thank you to the person for relating this information about the sighting.
