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.

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Alfreton, Derbyshire, UK

Date: 09/21/06 time 6.40am

Approach Direction: Static

Departure Direction: Static

Witness Direction: East

Description: I was travelling to work on the A38 heading east to J28 of the M1 (approx a 5 mile trip) then south to J27 of the M1 (another 5 mins) and witnessed 3 ufo's in the sky static (not moving) over the Annesley/Hucknal area of Nottinghamshire.At first I thought they were just 3 normal planes and thought what a great photo they would take with a fantastic red dawn as a backdrop, but the more i looked the more i realised that after 15mins of driving the 3 objects had NOT moved in the sky and looked odd for planes. The objects were the classic cigar or saucer edge on in profile and white/silvery in colour with NO lights. I also noticed that they were pointed down (or could be up) by approx 20 degrees at an altitude of approx 3000-5000ft. I live on a flight path (east midlands airport) and know that commercial planes do not fly on the same path/height nor in formation. If the objects were military they would have long gone within approx 15 mins of watching (unless they were flying at 5mph). These objects were NOT helicopters!, NO vapoour trails were visible nor any sound. A colleague at work confirmed he had also seen them on his way in to work that morning.

Color/Shape: Silvery white

Height & Speed: 3000 to 5000 ft STATIC in the sky (DAWN)
