UFOINFO Online Sighting Report
Location: Banbury, Oxfordshire, England, UK
Date: 12th November 2013
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: A rectangular/oval 'body' with a large fin shaped object on what looked like the side of the body (from direction it was going). The fin was larger than the main body and was in the shape of a shark/dolphin fin. The object looked metallic, possibly silver, with a strong bright orange light/ora around it with a short orange trail behind it.
Could your sighting be a UFO balloon/lantern?: No
Weather Conditions: Clear
Description: I was letting the dog out in the garden, I looked up and saw what looked like a very large plane flying over-head, I looked at it for a couple of seconds and it didn't have any lights coming from it as an aeroplane should (it was about half 10 at night in November). I looked harder at it and I saw the object in some good detail (described in the shape of object).
It was flying over the motorway, close to the house, along the same path of the motorway, quicker than a plane usually moves through the sky. It was flying relatively low however far enough away not to be able to see small details. It looked potentially large in scale.
It was flying from my left to right on a straight path, however once it was past the boundary of the town (on the right) it increased in speed dramatically, pitched up and to the left then down to the right in an elongated 'S' shape and then I lost it behind the house adjacent to the garden.
This is not something I can logically explain away, particularly the increase in speed and the way it turned in the sky.
Update January 31st 2014:
A detailed investigative report by Dave Hodrien is available on the BUFOG website.
