UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

1995/1996 : Aghyaran, Castlederg, Northern Ireland

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: It happened at an area called Aghyaran outside a town called Castlederg in Co Tyrone, Northern Ireland.

Date: I can't remember but it happened in either 95 or 96.

Approach Direction: It was travelling slowly at a slant going down. From my point of view, it was going left. I was facing west when watching it.

Departure Direction: Not sure.

Witness Direction: Around the west.

Description: I was watching a film on television at the time and the only person in the house with me was my grandmother. It was around 3 or 4 or 5 in the afternoon on a saturday, I think. I could be wrong about that. Suddenly I looked out of the window and noticed a round dot in the sky which was orange in colour. What I remark about it most is it was definately an object in the sky as it was disappearing in clouds, and that particular day was cloudy. After watching it outside for a few minutes I went in to get my mothers camera, but when I went out to take a picture, the camera wouldn't work. This phenomenon hadn't anything to do with an outside cause; it just jammed lol. It was there for less than 10 minutes anyway and I don't remember how it went away, but what I do remember is that it floated up and down slightly every so often. This experience stayed with me my whole life without being reported and the only people I ever told were friends and family. Most thought I was lying. But it's the honest truth. I never thought about submitting this experience until now and this is the first time I've thought about it in many years.

Color/Shape: It was round and orange.

Height & Speed: I'm unsure about the height but it was there among the clouds and it was moving slowly.

TV/Radio/Press: I never heard of it being highlighted and I would like it if you could clarify if it was by e-mailing me please.
