Picture: Is this a UFO?



Published Date: 13 August 2009
TWO UFO sightings have been reported in the area.
Basil Donnor took a picture of a bright round object in the skies in Ryhall on August 1 while Alan Banks spotted two orange balls of light over his home in Thurlby on Friday night last week.
Mr Donnor initially went into his garden in St Tibba Way, Ryhall, to photograph a beautiful sunset but spotted the object on later inspection of the photograph on his digital camera.
When the photograph was blown up the following day on his 43-year-old daughter Sarah Donnor's computer in Parker Road, Stamford, a bright round object with a tail effect was seen.
Retired Mr Donnor, 74, describes the object as being a veil with a knot in it and believes it could be an inter-dimensional space ship.
He said: "I know people make ridicule of people who see UFOs. If it is not explainable, people can't accept it but I took a picture of it and I have evidence."
Mr Banks saw the balls at about 10.35pm when he had a cigarette outside his home in Chapel Lane.
He said one shot up before they both disappeared.
Mr Banks, 63, believes it was not plane having worked for 40 years at Aviation Traders.
He said: "It certainly wasn't an aeroplane.
"I really don't know what it was. I have had the mickey taken out of me and I really don't know. I have never seen anything ike this before."
People all over the country have been enjoying shooting stars thanks to the Perseid meteor shower over the last week.

Lights spotted over East Anglia spark new UFO mystery

London, Aug 13 : A huge new UFO mystery has started after a string of sightings of bright orange lights in the night skies over East Anglia were spotted.

The dazzling light shows have bewitched and intrigued eyewitnesses all over Norfolk and as far south as Ipswich, Suffolk.

John Young, 43, of Sprowston, near Norwich, who was stunned when he woke up at about 3.30am and looked out of the window, grabbed his camera after spotting a strange shining light on August 5.

'I glanced out of my bedroom window to see a bright light in the sky, much like a star except slightly larger in appearance and considerably brighter,' the Telegraph quoted Young as saying.

'It didn't move but when I played it back on my computer I was surprised to see the object was a perfect sphere with a hole in the middle.

'You can even see it appears to rotate clockwise for maybe 20 seconds then anti-clockwise for the next and so forth.

'I'm perplexed as to what I saw. Maybe there's a simple explanation but I haven't a clue what it was,' he said.

Young had spoken out after dozens of mysterious orange lights were spotted all over Norfolk, including Norwich, Dereham, Downham Market, Holkham and Caister.

Andrew Goodchild, 42, a helicopter pilot, was baffled by an unidentified orange light he saw over Norwich just before 10pm on August 2.

Goodchild, who has flown since 1991, said he initially thought it was a low-flying chopper but quickly realised the light was unusual.

Malcolm Vicary, of Old Catton, Norwich, said he was also intrigued by the suspected UFO that night.

'At first I thought it was a hot air balloon because of the orange glow,' Vicary said.

'It suddenly changed direction for a short distance then resumed its original course.

'The orange glow then went out. It then started to descend quite fast in the direction of St Faith's, very close to Norwich airport.

'I'm sure it wasn't an aircraft because there were no navigation lights or sound,' he added.

Other witnesses to the bright light were Dennis Sayer, of Dereham and his wife.

'Me and the wife spotted an orange light passing our house here in Dereham from the Windsor Park area at about 11.15 on Monday night,' Sayer said.

'We were looking out from a bedroom window and it was coming from the Norwich area heading toward Fakenham/Wells way.

'It did not appear to be going that fast - about the speed of a helicopter or less.

'I tried taking a picture of it with my mobile but the light was not bright enough.

'It was orange and pulsing and what looked like other coloured lights within it, but the main colour was orange,' he added.

More UFOs spotted above Powys

Published date: 13 August 2009 | Published by: Richard Jones

UFO fever continues to sweep Mid Wales as Kerry and Machynlleth become the latest places where strange objects have been seen in the sky.

The sight of glowing orange blobs sent shivers down the spines of a mother and daughter in Kerry, while in Furness, near Machynlleth, a couple spotted white flashes darting across the skyline.

Lisa Jones, of Kerry, was with her mum at approximately 10.15pm on Saturday night when she noticed the strange - and as yet unexplained - sight of orange lights in the sky.

Lisa said: "They were different sizes, all much bigger than a normal star. Most of them were travelling over our heads but some we're going in a different direction. Some seemed to be going really fast, others were slower and some were not moving at all.

"We watched them for about 20 minutes until they all just disappeared.

"I really have no idea what these lights could be but do not believe they were lanterns, as some people said they were last time they were spotted over Newtown. They were too random in their movement and size.

"I'm not a firm believer in UFOs but I do think something must be out there, we can't be the only planet with life on it, right?"

Sightings were also reported near Machynlleth on Saturday night, although this time the lights were bright white and darted quickly through the sky, making the shape of a horseshoe.

Ms Lesley Davies, of Furness, near Machynlleth, went outside to care for her dogs at approximately 10.20pm when she saw bright white lights heading from north to south.

She said: "I thought it was a star at first but then, all of a sudden, the prominent light made a horseshoe shape in the sky.

"The light then wobbled off behind a cloud before flashing twice and then shooting out from behind the cloud at a right angle.

"The sighting only lasted about 20 seconds but I definitely saw something. My partner is more sceptical than me about this kind of thing but even he has had to admit we saw something very strange, very spooky."

UFO sightings have been flooding into the County Times office all summer.

From strange orange lights in the sky to cigar-shaped craft that speed off into the night sky, it seems readers are seeing something strange in the Powys night sky.

From Dolanog to Builth Wells, Bettws to Llansanffraid, readers have been sharing their experiences of things in the sky they just cannot explain.

And they've been sharing their pictures too - have a look at some of the images sent in on our website

Philip Hoyle, of the UFO Investigation and Research Unit in Shrewsbury, has enjoyed a busy and exciting summer visiting people who have reported sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects.

In a recent interview with the County Times, Philip Hoyle, of the UFO Investigation and Research Unit in Shrewsbury, revealed: "There seems to be a concentration of orange sphere reports around the Newtown and the Llansanffraid area, many witnesses are reporting seeing orange spheres in particular over hill farms around Newtown.

"Other witnesses are describing not spheres but cigar shaped craft with lights or windows along the side."

UFO Sightings Reported In Ware And Hoddesdon
17:14 - 13 August 2009
UFOs in the form of orange orbs have been seen in the skies above Ware and Hoddesdon.

In an account on a UFO-watchers website bus driver Paul Thomas described seeing an "orange globe in the night sky" in Ware on July 28 at around 11.30pm. He wrote: "While Driving my bus I noticed out of the corner of my eye an Orange globe in the night sky. I watched it move across the sky, I lost sight for a few seconds and carried on going untill I found a better vantage point to view the sky clear of roof tops. At that point I saw three more come in to view from some distance following the first one. Then the second in the line blinked out and then so did the others. Every angle I saw them from was the same their Orange light was bright but not making a beam just a bright glow, they did not change shape as they moved and no wings or any other feature was present as they passed, it was a wonderful display."

The mystery orange objects were also seen early the following morning in Hoddesdon by eyewitness Clive Beatty. He wrote: "I saw three orange objects, the first at 20 minutes past midnight, from my house in Hoddesdon. It was a clear night, stars and aircraft were clearly visible, I was looking north and saw an orange glowing object that was travelling slowly from the SW towards the NE. There was no sound, no flashing lights and no variation in the lights intensity. It was at an angle to the ground of about 30-40 degrees which was just over roof top height and the size was equivalent to holding a pea at arms length. Even squinting at the object I couldn't define its shape, it seemed to glow. It took about 4-5 minutes to travel across the sky, slowly getting smaller and fainter and then not visible at all."

Both sightings were reported to the Ministry of Defence, and an MOD statement posted on the site read: "The MOD examines any reports of 'unidentified flying objects' it receives, solely to establish whether what was seen might have some defence significance; namely, whether there is any evidence that the United

Kingdom's airspace might have been compromised by hostile or unauthorised air activity.

New UFO sighting over Ipswich

Last updated: 12/08/2009 12:00:00


One Ipswich pensioner first spotted a UFO hovering above the Woodbridge Road area of the town about six weeks ago. He has seen it several times since.

But as Frank Pearsons, 89, of Bolton Lane watched it last Wednesday night he noticed something "different and strange" about it.

At about 10.15pm Mr Pearsons noticed the orange-coloured disc hovering in the sky, about half way between the horizon and the zenith, the point directly above a specific location.

"I had to wait a while, the moon was so bright, but fortunately it disappeared when the orange light was at its brightest.

"I imagine anyone living in the south east part of Ipswich could have seen it, it was so bright and it was quite high up in the sky."

The "orange globe" varies in colour according to Mr Pearsons, from a mid-orange to a silvery colour when it glows brightest.

However on Wednesday night Mr Pearsons noted the object acting in a strange manner.

He said: "At about 11.45pm I saw a speedy flash of silver dash into the orange globe.

"I would have thought it went straight inside it.

"And then about 15 minutes later I saw the same silver flash shoot out of the other side of the globe, and there were two more flashes from it at 15 minute intervals until about 12.30pm."

Mr Pearsons said this is the first UFO he has ever seen.

"I don't think British technology could produce anything like that," he said. "Somebody suggested to me it could be a satellite but it would not behave in that way and it wouldn't be the bright orange colour.

"I want to know if anybody else has seen the same light," he added.

UFO patrol: Strange lights in the sky about Ramsey
12:05 - 13 August 2009
I TOO have seen strange orange lights in the night sky.

On August 8 I saw nine orange lights in quick succession heading across Ramsey towards Huntingdon.

This happened at approximately 9.30pm.

At first, there were two lights static in the sky, which was joined by a third. These disappeared after about a minute and then another one on its own followed by a group of four came over and seemed to hover for a minute or two before dropping to the ground. Then a single one came over and just twinkled away.

I called my wife who witnessed the first set disappearing and then again when the second lot came over. She was the one who first spotted the last one appear above the house over the road opposite.

Now I spend a lot of time sky watching at night. These were not planes. The lights were too big, they moved erratically and there was no engine noise.

Golcar UFO snap that shows E.T. on his way Holme? Picture


Aug 13 2009 by Sam Casey, Huddersfield Daily Examiner

DID the little green men read the map wrong and end up en route to Mars-den?

Perhaps E.T. just wanted to phone Holme.

Whatever the truth, Examiner reader Sue Sill reckons she inadvertantly snapped a UFO flying across Huddersfield.

Sue, of Hexham Green in Longwood, took this picture at a joint first birthday party for her grandson, Jude, and granddaughter, Lily.

She was in the garden of her son, Shane Haigh, on Sycamore Avenue in Golcar, on Sunday afternoon.

The shot shows a mysterious looking airborne object, possibly hovering over Lockwood.

Sue said: "I was just snapping away, taking photographs. I didn't even see it and it wasn't visible to the naked eye.

"It was only when I looked back at the picture on the camera that I noticed it.

"At first I thought it was a cloud, then I zoomed in and saw this funny pear-shaped object."

Sue, a believer in the paranormal, was among about 50 people at the bash.

She has racked her brain for another explanation.

"It's not a Chinese lantern, because I've let those off before and this looks nothing like one," she said.

"It was either moving extremely fast and I was just lucky to catch it with the picture, or it wasinvisible.

"No-one else saw it either and it made no sound. I can't explain it.

"I'm a believer in UFOs, because this isn't the first time I've seen one."

The Ministry of Defence, which investigates UFOs, would not be drawn on the picture.

A spokeswoman said: "The MoD examines reports solely to establish whether UK airspace may have been compromised by hostile or unauthorised military activity.

"Unless there is evidence of a potential threat, there is no attempt to identify the nature of each sighting reported.

"Independent experts have concluded to date that there are realistic explanations behind alleged UFO reports.

"Reports are examined by the Ministry of Defence solely to establish whether UK airspace may have been compromised by hostile or unauthorised military activity.

"If required, sighting reports are examined with the assistance of the department's air defence experts. Unless there is evidence of a potential threat, no further work is undertaken to identify the nature of each sighting reported.

"The Ministry of Defence has no other interest or role regarding UFO matters. Nor does the department consider questions regarding the existence or otherwise of extraterrestrial life-forms."

UFOs around the moon

STRANGE: David 'Bushy' Schuman holding the photo he took of a UFO from Mindil Beach. Picture: NICK WELSH


STRANGE: David 'Bushy' Schuman holding the photo he took of a UFO from Mindil Beach. Picture: NICK WELSH

A DARWIN man has captured an "amazing" picture of strange objects surrounding the moon.

Long-grasser David "Bushy" Schuman took the picture at Mindil Beach at 4am last Thursday morning.

"It was just above the horizon between the casino and where the markets are," he said.

"It was just before the sun came up."

Mr Schuman said he didn't notice anything unusual at the time, but when he checked the photograph later he saw a series of strange circular objects around the moon.

Sceptics have suggested the "planet-like objects" could be water marks on the camera.

But Mr Schuman disagreed.

"I take lots of photographs but I have never seen anything like this before," he said.

"Nothing like that's ever happened for me at all."

Mr Schuman - who dropped a printed copy of the photograph off at the Northern Territory News office - also rejected suggestions the picture might have been digitally altered.

"I'm not smart enough to do anything like that - I don't even know how to send an email," he said.

Mr Schuman's bizarre sighting comes just days after Acacia Hills UFO spotter Alan Ferguson released a video of what he believes is a UFO flying above his home.

Mr Ferguson has spent the week singing the virtues of the Northern Territory as a UFO tourism destination after the Northern Territory News reported on his video.
