Orange Lights Changes To Black Over Conisbrough Yorkshire England UK
Hi there, after an odd sighting this evening, I made a quick online search to see if anyone else locally had documented tonight's occurrence. I found nothing, but then came across your website. I've never had cause to document such thing's before, but after seeing your site I thought it may be at least worth letting you know.
I'm based in Yorkshire, England in the small village of Conisbrough and the reason I thought it interesting to contact you, is due to the other recent sighting you have listed on May 4th 2010 which closely echoes our own.
At approx 10:00pm this evening 20th May 2010. My mother was in the back yard of their home, when she noticed an orange ball moving high across the sky, the thing that got her attention the most was the lack of sound, this object was clearly travelling high in the sky, was round in shape, orange in color, but made no noise what so ever.
She called my father to take a look, by which time the object had travelled over the house (travelling south) they went to the front of the house and continued to view the object, at which point it stopped and changed colour from orange to black, the first time fading from one colour to the other, before coming back towards the house, but it did not turn around or curve in the sky as a vehicle would to change it's path, instead it un-naturally reversed in an exact line, matching the trajectory of it's original path (i.e now travelling north) at this point it changed back to orange, but this time flicking or "flashing" between one color to the next, doing this twice over, flashing from "black" to "orange" to "black" and then again to "orange" then changing direction again traveling back on its original course (south) but at much greater speed until it faded out of sight.
The shape, color and lack of noise seems to match the details of the other recent sighting you have in our area, sadly neither of my parents were able to photograph this event, but the reason I am informing you, is because of the effect this sighting has had on my parents, they have always been very down to earth and single minded and have never entertained or been interested in talk or gossip of anything unnatural or paranormal, but it's clear in their manor and behavior this evening, that they have witnessed something tonight that has totally made them question their belief system, two stout, strong willed and clear minded people, who this evening witnessed something that in view of all science and logic can not be explained.
I did at first try to rationalize the event myself on hearing it, as over the years growing up in the area I have often seen odd and small aircraft, often military craft and police helicopters that have travelled along similar paths, towards an old airfield several miles away but for over 10 years now this site has been disused and they both dismissed this possibility strongly, stressing the odd nature of the objects color, shape and lack of sound could not have been a helicopter and given its swift direction changes was certainly not a plane.
On an extra note, it may also interest you to know that in 1966 as a boy, my father was present at the famous March 28 1966 photograph taken by Stephen Pratt, of UFOs flying over the Conisbrough Crags, The photograph was examined by photographic experts and also proven genuine by Kodak. Interestingly even though, my dad was present at the time of this sighting, he has never been a believer in such events and has never really spoken of the 1966 sighting, but yet this second sighting by him and my mother this evening, has had them talking all evening and in great detail as to how un-natural this object was.
I hope this information is of use to you. Thank You.
