My dad was an airline pilot and he saw one of them during his career. I saw one for the first time two nights ago. I think you know what I am talking about. Does it relate to the Zombie Apocalypse? Perhaps. For those that haven’t guessed I’m talking about Unidentified Flying Objects, UFOs to the cognoscenti.
My father, just like me, was a pretty pragmatic guy and when he said he saw something I believed him completely. Of course he couldn’t tell the ‘authorities’ because it would have foreshortened his career. His UFO experience was a long, cigar-shaped object following his 707 into New York one night. It glowed.
So what did I see? I have a greyhound that is pretty unnerved about night time. He doesn’t particularly like the dark so I accompany him into the garden while he does his thing. I’ve been doing this since 2006 so I’ve become a bit of a star-gazer. I recognise quite a few constellations, have taken my fair share of photos of Jupiter and others but have never before seen anything untoward – just the usual heavenly bodies such as satellites, meteorites, and aircraft coming into Heathrow. I have to say at this point I am a licenced pilot so can determine heights of objects in the sky pretty accurately. My night vision is not flawed. I say all this in order for you not to think I am some sort of amateur flake or suffering an hallucination.
Two nights ago my attention was drawn to some movement up near the Pleiades star constellation. I couldn’t make out the shape of the object clearly; it appeared to be flying at around 3,000 feet above me. It was large, almost the same diameter as the moon on a clear night so it was pretty large, probably about the size of a twin-engined light aircraft I’d say. The surface either had lights on it or it was shiny enough to reflect lights from the ground. As for its shape, I got the impression that it had a body and large wings which appeared to be flapping. At first I was confused because I couldn’t make out its shape particularly clearly. I also got the impression, just for a moment, that it could see I was watching it. I was a little concerned it would dive and attack (probably too many movies) but then it stopped its small orbit and flew off to the south in a straight line. Its flight path appeared deliberate so I do not think it was some sort of debris flapping around up in the sky.
So what did I see? Was it a UFO? Technically yes, I guess. I have noticed several of what I believe to be drones flying an elongated orbit over London more recently – they fly in places they would not otherwise be allowed to fly, their flight patterns are different to normal aircraft as are their nav lights. I don’t really mind their presence – I don’t mind Big Bruv watching in this instance – and they are a bit fascinating to watch. Are they watching me, watching them, watching me…
So, folks, what did I see? I’ve looked on the web for drones, model aircraft, anything that this might have been but it was too sophisticated for anything but Big Government or perhaps an ET Government. Am I wrong? Tell me.
