Just saw a UFO...
Post by Siriusly on Feb 13th, 2017, 7:50pm

Literally just made an account on this site as I think I've seen a UFO. I'm pretty sure it's not the first time, but this time I'm fascinated and have to share.
The sighting was over South West Essex; I saw what I originally thought was a very bright star, then thought was a plane, before realising it was something else.
I thought it was strangely bright for a star, especially when I saw the stars behind it and how extremely dull they were in comparison. I watched it a bit more, and thought I saw it flickering, so figured it must be a plane. So, as I sometimes do when I'm awake at night, I decided to watch the plane fly over. It didn't appear to be moving. At first I thought it was because it was so far away it just didn't appear to be moving; then I realised it actually wasn't (or at least, much). I scrutinised it further and realised it was moving minutely; it almost seemed to be moving in circles and zig-zags, hovering over the area. I contemplated if it could be a helicopter, but it just didn't seem logical. I made some notes upon first seeing it, in which I stated I could see a 'faint flashing light on the bottom, [which] appeared to be red, while the others [appeared] to be white.' I also noted that 'upon looking closer, I could've sworn I saw a curvature to the arrangement of the lights', but it was so far away, it was hard to tell. I tried to get a video of the phenomenon, but my iPhone failed me - and I had no other devices at hand. I managed to take some (very grainy) pictures instead, which look quite different from how the object looked in real life, but it's still interesting. I'd love to attatch the image here, but I'm not sure how. If anyone can help me out, please let me know.
In the meantime, I'd love to hear if anyone has any thoughts on this, or has seen anything similar in the same area. I would love to hear from anybody who has had a similar experience.

Hi Siriusly and welcome !

To load pics, I use photobucket. Direct copy works. When replying, you will see 2 rows of boxes. On the 2nd row, 4th box from the left, click it and paste between the two [img] here [/img .

I would like to see your pics. It would help narrow down the possibilities of what you saw if a further description is given. Such as the time, and direction of the object you saw. Was it the brightest object in the sky ? Etc.

Hope this helps .

Cliff

I live further north of this sighting near the Tyne River ! Looking west at the same time Venus is readily visable ??

Venus was very bright last night. I actually paused for more than the usual perfunctory glance when I say the bright light in the West.
From my perspective the brilliance kept increasing and decreasing, but that was due to some high level thin cloud that was blowing past.

It is a fact that if you watch a light in the dark it will appear to move. Usually upward and to the right. It's something we were told to be aware of when I was in the army.

Tonight (Tuesday) we have rain and 100% cloud cover; can't see a thing.
