June 10th 2008 : Waltham Windmill, Grimsby, Lincolnshire, England


UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Waltham Windmill

Date: 10th June 2008

Time: 11.30pm

Number of witnesses: 2

Number of objects: 1

Shape of objects: Sphere

Weather Conditions: Clear with the very occasional low cloud. Not enough to obscure the stars.

Description: At around 11.30 pm, my fiancee and I were having a drink in the garden before going bed. Our property stands alone directly behind the windmill and is approx 100ft above sea level. (Brigsley Top).

Lack of street lights (or any other type of light pollution) along with open fields to the rear of the property gives us the opportunity to see the night sky very clearly. The view from our back garden is accross to the vilages of Tetney, Holton Le Clay and beyond them, the Humber estury.

At 11.30 my fiancee alerted me to a bright, orange sphere hovering above the horizon. As we watched this orange ball or shpere moved silently, erraticly and unlike any aircraft we are familiar with.

The spheres rapid change of direction from backwards to forwards, then off again in a completely different direction made us certain this was a UFO we were watching. It would stop for a matter of 30 seconds before swiftly moving onto another postition, as if it mapping out the landscape perhaps. We wondered if the exact location was directly above the Humber.

Occasionally three smaller red shperes could be seen almost dancing around the orange light only to vanish altogether.

We watched for an hour and it continued mapping out the surface below.

I do recall a very similar sighting last year as reported in the Grimsby Telegraph. The account given by the witness was almost identical to what we had seen.
