Description: Hi, this sighting was in the early 80's when I was 20/21 and this is the 1st & only time I have shared this info;
The sighting was on a clear Saturday late afternoon over Eston hills, Teesside, with a clear sky the cylindrical shaped hovered over / around the top of Eston Bank overlooking the Tees valley moving slowly, it then darted across towards Nunthorpe 3-4 miles away, still overlooking Teesside, after a wile it continued to move in the same direction to what appeared to be over Yarm, a further 10 miles away. From my vantage point which was Pinchinthorpe nr Guisborough ( for those who know the area ) I had a perfect panoramic view of its movements, and knowing the area well I was able to gauge its relative distance & speed, this was clearly something unique and could cover 10 miles in 8 seconds ish, then change direction instantly or hover. Afterwards it veered off relatively slowly, away and up from my view point at about 30 degrees and north east until it hit clouds. That's it. I did look in the local paper & listened on local radio at the time but found no other reports, maybe someone can add to this sighting ??
