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.

UFO sighting, Worksop Nottinghamshire England

Watched object in sky tonight whilst still quite daylight duration of sighting 10/15 mins approx.

Didn't clock the actual time but guessed to be around 2015hrs local time awhile after rainfall,rainbow visible in sky to the east.

Viewed only with my naked eye, saw dark object probably a couple of thousand feet high up but thats a pure guess! First appeared to the south of where I stood and moved north on a fairly straight flight path.

I thought it to be a microlite aircraft as it came more overhead but could not say for sure? at my clearest point of veiw the thing that aroused my curiosity most was what appeared to be round coloured ojects that moved out of the definition of the body of the main object and at times appeared to be quite independent with daylight clearly visible between,there were atleast two of these which were pinkish in colour, as the entire thing continued north and to my left the whole thing returned to being visible as a single dark object as the distance from me increased.

I stood and watched expecting it to pass under a darkened raincloud and become a clearer shillouette against a patch of clearer sky but strangely it seemed to be stationary for a time but getting smaller without actually moving in a level direction under the cloud, giving the impression as to be gaining height.

I was torn between not wanting to miss anything and going to fetch my binoculars but opted for the latter, on my return I was unable to spot its location and sadly did'nt see it out of sight.

I'd be very greatful to hear from anyonelse who may have observed anything similar tonight and help to confirm what I saw.
