Location: Between Lancaster and Burnside, England
Date: November 1977
Time: Between: 11pm and 2am
First time I've mentioned this sighting. On finding other sightings at similar time in same area thought I'd mention this. It was a November night, can't remember date, 1977 I think, a Friday night/Sat morning between 11pm and 2am. Was a crisp, clear, cold night.
There were 2 of us. We set off to hitch a lift to Lancaster from Burneside Village Hall in Cumbria, near Kendal. We ended up walking most of the way, only stopping a couple of times for aprox 10-15mins. We didn't speak much, just walked. I saw a light, white I think, in front of me, about the height of a low flying helicopter. We didn't stop walking and didn't say much to each other. Quite matter of fact about it all really.
I remember saying did you just see what I saw? Probably a harrier I remember thinking, they can hover. I knew pictures were taken to form maps by these aircraft. Like a beam shining directly down, only for a second. Happened 2 or 3 times.
It was only later on the Saturday when recalling the experience I realised there was no sound, I mean absolutely nothing. I know we both saw it, but cannot explain to this day.
Will never forget though.
