October 2003

Bournemouth, Dorset, England Egg Shaped Object Flying Silently

Date: Around October of 2003
Time: Between 9:00 - 9:30 p.m.

I have been fascinated by the subject of UFOs since I was a small child, I'm 24 now. Around October time of 2003, I happened to have a sighting. It was probably around 9:00 -9:30 pm. I was walking back from the shops to the block of flats where I lived with my mother at the time, when an egg shaped object flew above me. It moved without sound, point forwards, with a tail of light (maybe as long as the craft itself), south-east-south over the road and disappeared above the flats where I lived. There are a number of variables that make this sighting hard to describe. Its speed, I suppose, could be comparable to the speed of a jet plane when viewed from the ground, namely very slow but if this thing was flying at the same height as a plane then it was about the size of a football field.

You see the problem. If I make a guess at size, speed, or altitude then all other factors have to change accordingly. Added to this is the fact that it happened two years ago and it was a clear night (no clouds = no frame of reference). If I had to guess though I would say it was moving at around ten miles an hour and was the size of a school bus, maybe 75 feet high. My second problem is in actually describing the object itself. As I have already said it was egg shaped flying silently point forwards with a tail of light following behind it. It was the way it was lit that is hard to describe. It was seemingly lit from within, white/orange and white/yellow but it was not transparent. Maybe a better description would be than it seemed to be superheated.

Its my opinion that most of us, even those who want to believe are completely grounded in reality and not really well equipped to deal with events dubbed paranormal. I don't mean to say that we panic but that we have a hard time with acceptance. Maybe that's just me. As a result I have spent the last two years half doubting what I saw. You have to wonder how many people experience such things yet don't report them out of just such skepticism or fear of ridicule. Luckily I have faced no ridicule but I have faced incredulity from the people I have told. I can't blame them for this, I doubted myself after all.

This morning came like a wakeup call. What I saw was no conventional aircraft, it was not swamp gas, Venus, or streetlight reflecting of duck buts and pardon the expression, but if that was a comet or meteor then we would all be goofed right now.

What I saw was something else.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
