UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO/UFO ROUNDUP and accepted in good faith. No investigation has been carried out by UFOINFO.

With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.

August 24th 2004 : Near Bristol Airport, England

Near Bristol Airport, UK A Large Bright Light Moving Quickly

Date: August 24, 2004
Time: Approx: 9:00 p.m.

I just saw your sighting report on

I live in the UK me and 2 of my friends went out for a smoke at roughly 9:00pm, a few hours out of the time you said you had seen a UFO going across the sky, we all saw something too. It was a large bright light which went straight across the sky extremely fast, it went into the distance and stayed there for a while then slowly fell an dimmed out.

[UFOINFO Note: 9:00pm in the UK is 3:00pm in Saskatchewan.]

We live near Bristol airport and we see planes going to and from the airport about every 10 minutes. This was certainly not a plane it was going way too fast. We came to the conclusion it was a shuttle as NASA are releasing one later this week but I did not know the date. I had a look on science daily to find out that it is apparently being launched on the 27th. So it can't be the shuttle.

None of us had seen anything like this before. It was way too bright for the altitude it was at.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
