1966? : Leeds, Yorkshire, England


UFOINFO E-mail Sighting Report

Hi The memory of this encounter has remained with me since 1966 ..I was only about eleven years of age and at home from school ill.

At the time I was recording some rolling stone LP records from an old style record player via a Grundig reel to reel tape recorder with an external microphone, I was in the kitchen when all of a sudden the music was drowned out by a very loud sound interference like a buzzing sound coming through the record player, instinctively I went into the living room to check the record player arm hadn't shot across the LP record.

The living room window was to my left as I came out of the kitchen door and I saw a very strange shiny metalic object clearly which appeared to be above the house roof. The object was hexagonal and appeared to be constructed from scaffolding, like something constructed from a meccano set. It sped away at a 45 degree angle at an incredibly fast speed and vanished into the clouds.

Next day the Evening Post newspaper contained reports of a ufo sighting at the same time over the area, which was an area known as Swarcliffe in Leeds. I recall it mentioned two school boys trying to follow the object and also a postman on a bicycle witnessed the sighting. I remember playing back the tape which recorded a vibration. Later there were several sightings of green triangular objects in the area at night, and my mother was awoken by what she described as a bright ball of light outside her bedroom window. My sighting was in broad daylight about 12.30 ..to the right of our house was farmland, to the left was a sprawling housing estate. I doubt if there is an explanation. j.f
