Newcastle, England - Cylinder

Date: June 7, 2004
Time: Daytime

My name is (removed), and I live in Newcastle, England. I was just passing the time on the computer, when I saw the photo of the cylinder. About two weeks ago, I saw the same thing . At first it was miles up in the sky, it was just like a dot, but it came down, and I watched it through binoculars. It was the same shape but a bit thinner, same colour, and the line mentioned was about a third down from the top.It was vertical all the time, and seemed to drift slowly. I lost sight of it after 2 or 3 minutes.

Additional Information Below:

I saw the cylinder about a week before I sent you the message. The weather was warm and sunny with fluffy white clouds, I kept losing sight of it against them. Its hard to judge the height, at first it was like a dot, then it came down to below the height of the fluffy clouds. Whatever height fluffy clouds are on a summers day, that's the height it was. I am guessing if the object was in the room I was in, it would have been between 4 and 6 feet in length, and when it was at its lowest point it was about the same length as my outstretched thumbnail. it had a drifting movement, but always upright.I didn't see any planes around. There were no sudden movements, the movement was constant but slow and smooth. This may have nothing to do with anything but I live near an airport and every few months we get planes of different descriptions flying round in huge circles for 4 or 5 hours at a time. What I mean is,1 plane flying round and round. Then an interval of a few months then a different type of plane doing the same thing.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
