Full Description of event/sighting: I was going into work on the night shift. I was driving on a duel carriageway going up a small hill when just above the tree tops I saw a very large round object, silver in color and a dome on the top with windows all lighted up. There was a figure, a black figure looking down at the car. I stopped my car to look at the object and I now was under the round disk. There was loads of different colored lights which covered the whole underneath of the disk. It must have been 200 feet across and it just floated over my car. No noise and my car was still on. I didn't get scared, just amazed at what I was looking at.

I told every one at work what a had seen, but they thought I was crazy until a few days later on a Thursday the Sun and other news papers reported that UFOs were seen all over the world. Well the guys at work were shocked now because I saw the UFO on Tuesday and it was in the newspapers on a Thursday.

I have seen just two in my lifetime the other was just two weeks ago. My son called me to the back garden and said dad, what's that in the sky. It was 7:00pm in June, the sky was very clear and it was a large round, very black object. It just flew across the sky. We watched it for 5 minutes and it didn't have any shine on it at all. Just above the UFO was a airplane flying well above the object. It was reflecting as you know from the sun, but the black UFO was poor black.

It was to big for a balloon and it flew like it was controlled. I reported it to the Evening Post here in Lancashire who put it in the newspaper with other witnesses seeing the same thing on the same night, very odd. Many thanks.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
