UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Hove, Brighton, East Sussex

First seen from Portland Road - estimated flying over the coast.

Seen again flying directly over my house in Wordsworth Street, seen to be rocketing towards and over Sackville Road and further.

Date: 19th May 2008

Time: 22:00 roughly

Number of witnesses: 2

Number of objects: 1

Shape of objects: Long, clyindrical object. Like a torpedo with short, angular wings.

Weather Conditions: Crisp air, no mist or clouds. An hour before the sighting the sky was completely clear and dark blue. Stars could easily be seen. Low wind.

Description: The only people I know who saw the object was me and my friend. We were walking along Portland Road to my house when I saw a fast-moving, blinking object in the sky ahead - the weird thing was, it was leaving a jet trail. The trail was thick and white, and the lights on the object were flashing in a sequence of red-WHITE..red..red-WHITE..red. It was traveling over us at a high speed, and headed towards the seafront. We thought nothing of it and went home.

About 10 minutes later we were in my hiuse when we heard a massive WHOOSH! just over the house. We ran outside and looked up. That was when we saw it - it was a long, cylindrical object (shaped somewhat like a torpedo) with flashing lights on the body, but not the wings. The wings themselves were pretty short and hard to see, and jutting out in an angular fashion at roughly 45 degrees to the body. It was very low down - I swear I could almost make out windows on this thing. If I stood on the roof of my house (which is a standard size, with an upstairs and downstairs.

TV/Radio: This is the first place I came.
