UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

August 12th 2007 : Wakefield, West Yorkshire, England

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Wakefield, West Yorkshire, UK

Date: Sunday, 12 August 2007, sometime around 00:30

Approach Direction: East

Departure Direction: West

Witness Direction: West

Description: There are 5 of us laid down on a trampoline looking at the August Meteor's, we started at about 23:00 and stopped at around 01:30. We see plenty of Meteors, planes and satellites. Then somebody says 'can you see that', then all of us gasp, then fall silent, we know this is unusual.

There were 2 objects, shaped like chevrons (<), orange coloured and generally flying in a westerly direction with intent, although one was dancing around a bit as if playing/enjoying the ride. They were faster than a plane/satellite, but slower than a meteor, and very graceful. I considered that maybe they were part of a meteor that skimmed on the earths atmosphere, but no, they were 'piloted' objects. We couldn't see any outlines of the shapes, just the orange chevrons. There were no noise, and no other objects near at the time. As an engineer and skeptic I can't rationalise an explantion for what we saw, the flight pattern and profile were unlike anything I've ever seen.

It was a clear night sky, a new moon, so dark skys with plenty of stars. Being the peak of the august Perseids meteor showers, there must have been more observers who saw this.

Color/Shape: Orange chevron <

Height & Speed: Much faster than planes, satellites, slower than a meteor. Height maybe same as an high altitude plane

TV/Radio/Press: not aware of any
