June 26th 2009 : Harlow, Essex, England

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Harlow, Essex, UK

Date: June 26 2009

Time: Around 11pm

Number of witnesses: 2

Number of objects: 2

Shape of objects: Small round wispy clouds

Weather Conditions: Overcast

Description: I was in my garden having a cigarette when some movement in the sky caught my eye. I saw two quite small, very white and quite bright, round wispy clouds moving in a regular swooping pattern from right to left, quite quickly. They seemed to be swirling, almost spinning, as they moved, and they were clearly well below the rest of the cloud cover.

I called my 8-year-old daughter to see them, she was terrified! I was fascinated. I got my camera, which has a video facility on it, and recorded 30 seconds worth of footage, but whilst viewing through the camera could only see black sky (it's not a very strong camera). I assumed therefore that it wasn't picking up anything, so gave up filming and just carried on watching, but now wish I had continued to film. The clouds continued to dance around for about 5 minutes, though obviously I don't know how long they'd been there before I noticed them.

When I looked at what I had filmed, I could see definite movement of clouds (although this only shows on my camera screen, not on the video when I looked at it on my computer), and even more fascinating a pinpoint of light dancing around which I hadn't been able to see with the naked eye, although I only caught a couple of seconds of footage of that. The only logical explanation for what I saw would be some kind of laser, but there were no beams, just the dancing clouds and the little pinpoint of bright light.

Is there any way of finding out if there were any lasers shining over Harlow that night? What I saw was definitely not a plane, the movement was going backwards and forwards and planes don't do that! Everyone I have told has been very cynical, but I know what I saw, and my daughter can back me up. I would love to know what you think it might have been, so please get back to me. If you want, I can email you the video I took too.


I did write to the witness stating that the only way to find out if there were any lasers over Harlow that night is to ask the local paper. Said she can ask to have her name withheld as she will probably get some ridicule from other readers if suggesting it might have been something else! Have not heard anything since - John @ UFOINFO.
