Full Description of event/sighting: My friend (removed) and I had finished work in the hospital and was on our way home, our shifts would finish between 4:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m, it was a dark night and the lighting in the car park was poor, when we got to the car park we stood talking for about 10 or 15 minutes.

I don't recall if there was a sound or noise but for some reason I looked up at the night sky then looked back at my friend, then immediately looked again into the night sky, I said to my friend something along the lines of "what's that" and then asked him if he could see it, we stopped talking for a moment and both looked, then my friend replied "yes what is it" we both stood staring, trying to work out what it was, we both began to discuss what we were seeing & tried to rationalize it, we both agreed it was strange

When we stopped looking at it, I turned around to see if anyone else had stopped to look, but nobody had, I saw a few people walking through the car park talking, but nobody noticed.

I looked back at my friend and we carried on with our conversation, said goodnight and went home. The strange thing is we only spoke to each other about it once or twice afterwards, it was never mentioned again. Since that day, I have thought that maybe it was some kind of reflection, a collection of positive ions in the atmosphere or something ?

What we saw was something like what you see in films today, it was an extremely large craft which took up a massive amount of sky, it was so large that it blended itself into the darkness of the night sky, there were lots of shapes on the craft which were suddenly light up by the moonlight. We were directly underneath the outer edge of it, I know this because with my head tilted right back I could see the stars, then as I rolled my eyes forward I could make out the shapes on the craft.

I don't recall seeing any lights on the craft but I do recall it slowly but constantly moving overhead from my left to my right, as I looked to my right (the direction the craft was moving) the shapes were disappearing into the night sky but they were still coming over from the left, I'm afraid I can't recall seeing the back of the craft I just remember not seeing it anymore, it was just passing over and then the shapes blended into the darkness of the night sky.

Was this a UFO ? Or can it be explained away scientifically ?

This was not a dream it is defiantly a memory, has anyone else reported something like this ? could you please email me with your thoughts.

Many thanks.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
