Location of Sighting: North Yorkshire Moors - near RAF Fylingdales.

Shape of objects: Dark disks inside yellow glow.

Full Description of event/sighting: Brian, this is in response to your sighting of a cylindrical object by a couple on the N. Yorks Moors the previous day to my sighting. There have been numerous sightings in the area on the 14/15/16th of the month some have been reported to the local press e.g. and including video of my own sighting at

I saw the two low, slow flying objects as I was returning home over the North Yorkshire moors approaching the RAF Fylingdales radar station near Saltersgate at around 22:30 on the 15-08-2008. Almost directly above the station were two very readily visible golden yellow lights moving at slow speed - as an ex pilot, knowing that airspace to be restricted as a danger to aircraft area due to radar emissions. I found this highly unusual and suspicious.

I found a safe spot to pull over and took out my camcorder from the car boot and filmed a couple of minutes of footage. (not the sort of spot to be parked for any length of time, as you are certain to me moved on by base security - especially if waving a camera around!).

To the naked eye (and I have aircrew eyesight) there were no anti-collision lights of any kind, which was confirmed by review of the video. The two objects flew in slow, close formation and moved Eastwards towards the town of Scarborough, which is some 10 miles away. They were completely silent, with a spherical bright orange/yellow glow, seemingly around dark objects at the glow centre - the dark objects appeared roughly disk shaped (cylindrical from a side view) - no fuselage or control surfaces were observable.

Driving further across the moors closer to Whitby, the objects were still visible and I was able to film them once more. I will try to email to you a frame grab from the second video which is the clearest shot of the objects. I hope this is of use and interest to your two witnesses. For further information local UFO expert Russ Kellett at would be their best bet. He has an extensive list of local/UK sightings on his site. Best wishes.
