Description: In July 1984 I was on a train going from Newcastle Upon Tyne to Berwick Upon Tweed. I was in a window seat at the end of the carriage facing the direction of travel. I became aware of other people in the carriage pointing towards the left hand windows so I turned and saw what they were looking at. About half a mile away there was an object shaped like two bowler hats, one inverted under the other.

The object was jet black & was hovering above a wood, The trees underneath the object were being thrashed about by wind but the trees either side were still. I looked around the carriage and everyone was looking so I knew I was not imagining it. This was before mobile phones with cameras & digital cameras so I doubt that anyone took a photo of it. There were over 60 people in the carriage I was in and 7 carriages in total. I estimate that about 500 people must have seen the object. The object stayed where it was until the train turned away.
