UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

July 18th 2008 : A40 near Burford, Oxfordshire, England

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Along the A40 I think after Burford

Date: 18th July

Time: 11.15 pm

Number of witnesses: 1

Number of objects: 1

Shape of objects: Like a small barrage balloon - rather vague

Weather Conditions: Clear

Description: I was driving along late on the A40 and noticed bright lights on the ground in the field, but shaped like a vast star - I thought at first there was a music festival somewhere around but there was no noise, or people, and then notice directly ahead of me a large roundish oval barrage balloon - bright - move across the line of trees and then disappear. I thought - goodness what was that - and then realized I must have seen a UFO.


UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness to have a look at the UFO Balloons website to see if this is what might have been seen and received the following reply:

Hello John,

Thank you for your reply and sorry to have taken so long to get back to you. No definitely not a lantern. Had a good link at the link you sent me. It was certainly a largish dark shape, and I think lit in the front part.

I know it sounds too vague, but I am someone who, I'm afraid who always was fairly sceptical about 'sightings', infact practically thought they were a figment of the imagination, but I am 100% certain that this didn't come from my head so to speak!
