Lake District, Cumbria UK Triangle

Date: 1982
Time: 5:00 a.m.

Number of witnesses: 5
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Triangle

Full Description of event/sighting: A triangular shape came over mountain top on deserted country road, no sound whatsoever. I remember it approaching us and then hovering above us in what seemed like slow motion. Rest of family only remember it taking off before we carried on our journey. Not one of us have ever spoke of this incident in all this time for fear of laughter. Was visited since on several occasions.

Here is more detail of the actual event of that night.

First of all their was five of us in the car - My Father (Health Physics worker at a nuclear power plant (ex R.A.F) - Now Retired), My Mother (Social Worker - Now Retired), My Grandmother (Now Deceased), My Sister & Myself.

We had just returned from an holiday abroad and had landed at Manchester airport which is a few hours drive away from our home.

After we had driven for a couple of hours along the motorway, we turned off to enter the Lake District which is a mountainous area of the UK that's pretty much deserted and frequently visited by ramblers / hikers.

The time was around 1:00 a.m. by now and I started complaining I needed to use the bathroom. With us being miles away from anywhere my father pulled the car over and told me to go use the side of the road.

I remember looking up at the sky as I left the car and walked towards some bushes. It was a crystal clear night, no clouds at all, you could see hundreds of stars and several mountains a mile or so away. Anyway, (I was having a wee) and the back door of the car was open when over the mountain top a mile or so away came a blue neon light. I remember looking at this light and thinking wow, how pretty. I shouted to my father to get out the car and come see it too.

My father came out of the car and stood beside me for a minute or so as this thing headed straight towards us. My mother knocked the car headlights off at this point in hope that whatever was coming towards us wouldn't see us down below on the road and she shouted over for us to get back into the car.

It was a triangular shaped object, I'm not sure of the speed it was traveling but it seemed to approach in almost slow motion as if gliding on air and there was no sound whatsoever. As it hovered above us I noticed that the blue glow was totally surrounding it like a thin layer with no apparent source and it was a dark metallic color inside of this light. It must of been about 30 feet above us and roughly about the size of a small passenger aircraft.

My mother, sister and grandmother were now screaming at us to get into the car and my father said come on, lets get the hell out of here.

The next thing I remember is us all driving down the road with my father saying how we should never mention this to anyone for fear of ridicule etc.

However, my mother & sister recall a different story.

Their version matches mine and my fathers so far as me getting out of the car and walking towards some bushes. They say the craft rose from the ground behind some trees near where I was standing and emitted huge white beams of light through the trees as it took off before my father dragged me into the car and we drove off in a panic.

I'm sorry I cant give more details on the actual craft, but it was a long time ago and although it sticks in my mind I'm sure you know that the mind tends to become distorted and add things itself over time. For this reason I've kept it all as simple as possible.

Finally, even nowadays I try to avoid that road whenever possible as a feeling of dread, even death, comes into my mind whenever I am on it.

Nowadays we occasionally talk about it among ourselves and sometimes even manage a laugh or two about it.

Thank you to the witness for this report.
