UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

February 6th 2008 : East London, England

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Hi I would like to report a UFO sighting I had last night in the hope that others may have seen it too at 18:50 Hours Wednesday 6th 2008.

I have been ill in bed since Friday and have only managed to get out of bed today, well I mostly forced out because my girlfriend had bought us tickets months ago to go see the band 'Thirty Seconds to Mars'!

As we were walking in East London towards our destination both [deleted] and I noticed a intensely bright light in the sky, so intense was the light that we stopped walking and watched as it swayed towards us. The sky was dark yet no clouds, so every thing was really clear. We live right next to Canary Wharf and the Isle of Dogs which has its own business airport, so i am very familiar with all the types of planes that constantly fly over us.

There were planes in the sky which were very visible and very unlike the object that was now passing over our heads, there were no other coloured lights associated with the object, it seemed lower than the other planes in the sky and it seemed to be travelling at a rather slow speed.

I had just pulled out my phone camera to take a picture as it passed over when the light dimmed to a dull red shrinking in size as it did and then just vanished, like a light bulb going out. I must point out that the object did not shoot off, it just blinked out right above us.

Both [deleted] and I are so overwhelmed, she not a believer now is! We both know what we saw, It came towards us changed colour and size and vanished above our heads. I can't imagine what sort of plane or swamp gas that might be! I want to scream this from the roof tops, but can guess some of the comments that I'm going to receive!

All the best
