UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

Please note that the reports in this section have been submitted to UFOINFO/UFO ROUNDUP and accepted in good faith. No investigation has been carried out by UFOINFO.

With the increasing use of digital cameras we are seeing more photos showing alleged 'UFOs' - many of these could be insects, cloud shapes etc. As many readers have asked to see the photos I will be using some of them and leaving it up to the individual to make up their own mind - John @ UFOINFO.

Description: Hi

I have only ever told my family and a few mates about what I saw back in 1980, thinking that people would say I was silly and they wouldn't believe me or I was seeing things, it was a Friday night near Christmas, can't remember the exact date. I was a 20 year old motorcyclist at the time, I rode a new that year, Suzuki GS850GT. That night I arrived home about 1 o'clock in the morning after being with a load of mates on the outskirts of Ipswich, I wasn't drunk as I didn't drink, it wasn't worth the risk. I walked down the garden path at my home in Holly Close, Little Bealings to hear what I thought were A10's flying across the valley out the front of the cottage. It was the approach flight path for the A10's. I went to watch them as they always flew low and slow and I loved watching them, they were also normally quite quiet.

Anyway I watched what I thought were 3 A10;s lights, green, orange and sort of a lightning blue, really bright. They were not getting any closer, I stood watching these lights for about10-15 minutes. They just stayed there not moving.

After 10-15 minutes they got closer to each other with hardly any noise whatsoever then all of a sudden they all went up towards the sky with a slight 'whoohh' noise getting slightly further apart as they went higher. They traveled faster than you can tip your head back to look up.

I have never seen any aircraft move as quick as these did. I had a job to keep my eyes on them, at this point I thought I had just seen some UFOs, It did get my heart racing. I went indoors after a few moments and my late Mother was awake as she always used to worry about me on the bike. She said Mike, you look as if you have seen a ghost, so I told her what I saw, she said 'have you been drinking? As a bit of a joke.

As I have said before I have never told hardly anyone about this. The time this happened coincides with the Rendlesham incident, maybe the same weekend or maybe a week before or after. It was out the front of Holly Cottage in Little Bealings, Suffolk. There are fields for about 5-7 miles so it is normally quite dark apart from the light on the horizon from Ipswich.

I have at last got this off my chest after all these years

I can still see it as plain as day as if it only happened yesterday.

Color/Shape: Just 3 flashing lights on each whatever it was, 9 altogether.

Height & Speed: About 100 foot off the ground, 100 yards away from where I was standing. They departed upwards at the speed of a, well bullet really. hard to keep watching.

TV/Radio/Press: This is the first time I have spoken out about it. Just wanted to let someone who would be interested know.
