Over South Coast Of Dorset England, U.K. UFO Sightings

Date: June 30, 2008
Time: 0100 hrs

Location of Sighting: Over south Coast of Dorset England.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 2
Shape of objects: Flashes in night sky.

Full Description of event/sighting: Whilst star gazing on quite a few occasions lately I have witnessed flashes similar to flash bulbs-very intense and of similar duration to flash photography bulbs, only at heights akin to aircraft or possibly even higher like satellites. Have noticed satellite type "stars" which do not have a constant track. As a young boy I once saw with my father two "star-like" objects in close formation zig zagging from north to south. My father said they were weather balloons. At the age of 15 a school friend and I saw in broad daylight a 2' diameter disc float from rooftop height up to about 2000' where it disappeared in cloud. What struck us was that if a hoax fashioned from tinfoil, why didn't it look "crinkly"? This object was smooth and apparently originating from over the roof of what looked to be an elderly persons' bungalow residence, an unlikely source of hoaxer activity.

When sitting in my car having just finished a piano tuning about 12 years ago in the afternoon during an overcast day I saw a light in the sky of about car headlight intensity. I looked behind me in the rear window to take note of any vehicles with lights on which may be causing reflections and there were none. On reviewing the object it was still static as I moved my head around, whilst still training my eyes on it, the object suddenly accelerated away to the west, leaving a streak of light (not unlike in the credits of Star Trek!), which faded to nothing.

My mother and I witnessed a bright red/pink spark way out over Poole Bay shooting at incredible speed shoot from south to north (inland) then back again from whence it came. As someone with aircraft experience (my father and brother are/were pilots) I can honestly estimate the speed of this low flying object at well in excess of mach 1 or two even, more like mach twenty! Hope you can help reveal the truth even if some or all these events are down meteorological phenomena. These events sum up most of my memorable sightings of unknowns.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
