Full Description of event/sighting: I was walking down towards my house behind which is the view of the Glossop valley. Right in the middle of the valley, very high up, I noticed a black object seemingly floating along. Immediately I thought that it was something out of the ordinary as I had never seen anything like it before. It was shaped like a black pipe or rod and it was stood vertically though at a slight angle. I watched it for a few seconds before I called my sister on her mobile to come out and have a look, I didn't want to go and get her in case it disappeared. She came out and saw it and although I was adamant it was a UFO she was more skeptical, although she couldn't tell what it was either. The object was moving from right to left in our line of vision and as it seemed to be getting further away I went into the house and get my Dad's binoculars out. By this time it had moved much further into the distance, though through the binoculars I could see that it was slowly rotating, in the way that it was black but every so often it would show a silver metallic side opposed to black. The whole sighting lasted about 15 minutes before the object was out of sight. Although I believed I had seen a UFO, I was even more convinced when I looked on the website UFOINFO and found that someone had posted a sighting, one that had happened exactly a year before at almost the same time and which had happened in the same place. The sight report could not have given a better description of what my sister and I saw, and when my sister read it even she agreed that it was a strange coincidence.

Both Brian Vike at HBCC UFO Research and myself received this report.
