UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Kenton Lane, Newcastle upon Tyne
Date: November 20 2009
Time: Approx 0915 to 0920
Number of witnesses: Me
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Like a shape of the cough sweet lockets
Weather Conditions: Very grey overcast and cloudy
Description: I was driving down kenton lane going to work and I was about half way down kenton lane when I looked up and to my left toward the sky. I saw a silver object in the sky, it was silver but it really stood out against the grey clouds-it looked shiny metallic.
One half, the bottom, was filled with a very bright orange light and the other half was the metallic shiny colour. It was high up in the sky and not moving. I assessed whether it was a plane or a helicopter(I often watch the way aircraft bank and move and I am very accustomed to the way they manouvre). It was definitely not a plane as it was still and its shape did not look anything like a helicopter. As I drove on(I could not stop I was in moving traffic) I passed some trees which meant I could not see the object. After I passed the trees the object was gone. I sighted the object for maybe about 5 seconds 7-10 seconds max.....i thought could it have been a streetlight but this was high up in the sky and nothing was attached to it, plus the street lights around there are all black-however I am trying to rationalise this and that is the only other thing that came immediately to mind once I believed it was neither a plane or helicopter. It was far too high up in the sky to be a streetlight. I kept looking to the driver in front of me as if to say 'did u see that' but the driver in front seemed not to notice anything.
On another note, I do not know whether this may have influenced what happened today, but a work colleague recently told me when he was young he and 2 of his friends saw a ufo hovering and then whizzing off. This was about 2 weeks ago.
What I saw seemed similar to those 'fakes' I have seen on youtube before. I have always doubted video footage shown on youtube as I know the power of c.g. If any of this has swayed my perceptions I do not know, but I definitely saw something just in the sky this morning Im pretty sure of it. If you would like anymore details please do not hesitate to contact me.
