Out There stories relating to "UK UFO"

See video
This video from an infrared camera aboard a police helicopter in the UK shows an object similar to one that has been taped in many situations. In normal light, it is bright silver metallic with a darker area in the center. In daylight video, the object appears to be able to vary the shape of the darker area.

It was recorded over the Bristol Channel in the UK, south of Wales. Your Out There Editor notes that the poster left comments on, and has received the usual moronic responses. People fear the unknown.

The still image shows similar objects that were videotaped in daylight, the one on the left in British Columbia and the one on the right in Mexico.

The British National Police Air Service has recorded a video on an infrared system that shows a UFO that is emitting heat but was invisible to air traffic control radars in the area. The video was recorded aboard a National Police Air Service helicopter in South Wales using an FILR camera, which records both normal and infrared light. The object was not visible in the camera in daytime mode, but was visible in infrared mode. It was traveling into the wind, and the pilot does not believe that it was a balloon or a candle lantern.

The footage was actually taken at approximately 9:30 PM according to the police report. The footage is time stamped 8:30 PM. It was made in 'black hot' mode, which returns a black image of anything emitting heat. The size could not be judged. The object was taped for seven minutes.

Typically, the British Government quickly suppressed the video. It is no longer available.

The image below is from a video available here. The witness states that phenomena was observed for two nights, and on the second night, as he was filming three small orbs below cloud cover, his camera abruptly lost power, and the video does reflect an abrupt power down as it ends. This is not uncommon during real UFO events. The object encountered on the first night, pictured below, could have been a distant plane with its landing lights on, but the witness states that it remained stationary in the sky for 15 minutes before moving slowly off. Rated A.

The UFO pictured here from a frame grab was filmed by two off-duty police officers near Consett in Country Durham in the north of England. Gary Heseltine, editor of UFO Truth told the Sun newspaper that he believes the sighting to be genuine. Your Out There editor agrees. The object is large enough to be a balloon and it never carried out any maneuver that would suggest that it had an ability to do anything except move with the wind, but it is also very long and for a balloon to have been made rigid and still float without the slightest horizontal motion is not easy to understand. This is a probable UFO, and joins  many thousands of cylinder UFO sightings that have taken place over the years. For the US National UFO Reporting Center's list of such sightings click here.

This object was observed and recorded by Chris Henry, the author of UFOs and Extraterrestrial Visitations in Ancient Cultures. It is becoming more and more common that people who take an active interest in the field end up as direct witnesses. This object is not a drone an unlikely to be a balloon unless very large and especially fabricated to have the unusual shape. It was also stationary.

Mr Henry states, “I posted the video on Facebook and people said it could be a drone or hot air balloon but it was too high up - it was the height planes fly at, and it was miserable weather too. It looked nothing like a drone either as drones have wings and propellers. No-one’s been able to put forward any sensible suggestion as to what it was.” Graded A.

This object was photographed on January 19 at 1:10 PM in Newton Abbot, Devon in the UK. We can find no evidence of the photo being doctored and it is not a computer graphic. Therefore, we are grading this A, Probably True. The object is observed at an angle though, which can mean that it was thrown from below. In this case, though, the distance appears such that this is not a likely scenario. The witness reports to Latest UFO SIghtings: "I could clearly see that the object was in fact a flying saucer and I could see a dome on the top of the saucer. The flying saucer turned back in the direction from where it had come from and then disappeared off into the distance and out of sight. I got a very good look at this alien craft and all I can say is WOW!" He also mentions that he got 20 photographs of the object.

Another report of strange sounds comes from Manchester in the UK. These have been coming in since 2011, but, as always, the media has no awareness of their history. We do, however. The video attached, for example, comes from 2012. The poster theorizes that the sounds are from some sort of industrial process, and that's possible. But they remain of unknown origin. So far, there has been no video or audio posted of the sounds that were heard on September 16, that are referred to in the linked story from the Manchester Guardian.

A question about these sounds: as they appear to have been heard only rarely prior to 2010, and now are heard repeatedly, what has changed?

This is an odd and disturbing story. The object does look as if it is something in the sky. The little boy who took the video on his parents' phone claimed that he had been seeing it in the sky for some days. He felt as if it was following him. Whether this means that he would have been abducted or not is unknown, but it is almost unique for a person to find themselves being followed over a period of days like this.

Amateur photographer Sandra Stuteley of Peterborough in the UK took a series of photographs of some strange aerial objects on April 12, and after consulting family and friends, is requesting that the public offer suggestions about what this may be. Our photography experts are stumped. The best natural explanation that they could come up with was a large insect with sunlight glaring off its eyes, but this seems far fetched.

We are classifying this as a probable unknown. If you have any thoughts regarding this, please either comment below, on our FaceBook pages, or write whitley@strieber.com and we will forward the information to the Peterborough Telegraph, which is helping Ms. Stuteley in her effort to determine what she has photographed.

These glowing objects were allegedly filmed with a cellphone outside of a home in the town of Earl Shilton in England in the early hours of the morning one day last February. This is not a Chinese lantern, a drone or a balloon. It is not possible to determine altitude, but they could be ultra-high noctilucent clouds. The image would also be easy to create in a number of different ways. But if the witness is to be taken at her word, these would appear to be plasmas of some sort, and thus an unknown.

This is not a CGI effect, and the object is moving in ways that would be difficult to do with a radio-controlled drone, although not impossible. It could be a drone, but it's also possible that it's an unknown object.

This video doesn't look all that exciting at first, but when the object begins to move, its irregular trajectory doesn't suggest planet or satellite. This is a genuine unknown, if not a simple CGI hoax.

This object could be a genuine unknown. However, the humming sound described also suggests that it might be a blimp, but it would be a violation of the law for it to be flying that late in the evening without any running lights.

This amateur video shows an object that does not appear to be a computer graphic and, given the wind, it's neither a drone nor a sky lantern. This is a probable unknown.

Your Out There editor can't find any reason to believe or debunk this story, so here it is:pilots landing an Airbus A320 at Manchester in the UK were surprised to see a man fly past at an altitude of 3,800 feet as they passed over Macclesfield. He wasn't picked up on radar, and neither pilot saw a canopy above him. If there was no canopy, then he wasn't in a powered hang-glider or ultralight. There are no mountains nearby from which a wingsuiter could have taken off and reached an altitude of nearly 4,000 feet.

Why do they do it? Stupid, lying morons. For the skinny on this asinine prank, click here. There are tens of thousands of genuinely unexplained UFO images out there, so why does the troll patrol even bother? But they do, they do...

It was done as a vicious publicity stunt for a Sigh-Fie and Fantasy weekend in Portsmouth. Do yourself a favor and stay away.

Out There has been pretty quiet for a while! The reason is that we've been flooded with UFO hoaxes using drones, some of them very convincing, all of them fake. It's similar to the Sky Lantern fad, except that the fakes can be harder to spot. In addition, Mars is just coming off perigee, meaning that it is about as far as it gets from Earth. The farther the distance between the two planets, the fewer UFO events on Earth. As it gets closer, the number of UFO sightings usually rises, so they should be peaking toward the end of 2015 when it will be at apogee, or its closest point.

The witness to this object in the UK reports that it was moving very fast, and thus not what it looks like, a lenticular cloud. It would take only a moment to hoax this using simple software, so we just have to take him at his word. It is getting increasingly difficult to evaluate these cases, so if YOU have a UFO image, do send it to whitley@strieber.com and we'll be glad to take a look. Far better than trolling the internet!

This brief documentary, suppressed back in the 1960s, has resurfaced. The honesty of this witness was just too obvious for the authorities to tolerate. You watch her talking and describing what she has seen, and you cannot really deny that she is telling the truth. It was an amazing sighting.

If the witness description of this object is accurate, then it must be a genuine unknown. The witness offers a careful description of the movements of the object that would be impossible for a balloon, and adds a detail familiar from many sightings and close encounters: extreme agitation from nearby animals. Our photo experts feel that this is a genuine mystery.

The object caused sheep in the area to start making what to the ear of the witness were unusual, high-pitched sounds of terror. The sighting took place in Wales, where sheep mutilations have been a worrisome constant for well over a hundred years.

Ring clouds have been photographed fairly frequently for years, but there is no entirely convincing explanation for them. This formation that appeared over Leamington Spa in the UK yesterday is particularly well formed. It hovered for some time before dissipating. There were no storms or unusual weather in the area at the time.

An Unknowncountry reader reminded us that a ring cloud was observed and photographed during a the Rex Heflin UFO sighting in 1965. The cloud, pictured here, emerged as the UFO disappeared.

A meteor? A crashing secret aircraft? An unknown object in some sort of trouble? One thing that's clear: this is no ordinary jet contrail. Jets emit exhaust evenly. It may be blown by the wind, but it doesn't thicken, then grow thinner like this. Most likely explanation: a meteor.

There is no reason to think that this photo is a plane or a balloon. Probable unknown. Thanks to the National UFO Center.

This report describes a 'rectangular UFO,' which would be similar to one reported in California in 2010, and also to one seen over the radio station Whitley Strieber was broadcasting Dreamland from in 1999. He also commented on the earlier story that he'd seen such UFOs as a child. Click on "Square UFO" above to see the earlier report.

No reason at all to disbelieve this story. The pilot saw something moving at high speed directly toward his A320. It appeared to be a cigar shaped metallic object. Not likely to be a drone or, at an altitude of 34,000 feet, a balloon. This was yet another UFO near miss, and given how slowly the report filtered out to the public, and how wary pilots are of making such reports at all, you have to wonder how many just go unreported, and if any have resulted in crashes.

At a time when the internet is being swamped fake UFO video, this photo stands out as a genuine possibility. It has been posted, as well, by Open Minds, which is one of the outstanding resources on the internet for people who take a serious interest in this subject. Despite all the fakes, it cannot be forgotten that there is a very real phenomenon out there. People don't realize it yet, but eventually it will come to be seen for what it really is: the single most important thing that has happened in the history of our species. In the end, this denied, derided and ignored subject will change everything.

This hour-long interview is one of the best alien contact cases ever recorded. It is not to be missed for anyone seeking greater insight into this extraordinary phenomenon.

A mother feeding her baby at 5:20 AM in the UK spotted a bright light hovering in the sky. When it didn't move off, she took a picture of it, with the result that you see here. Read the full story in the Watford Observer. Classification: Unknown object.

An aeronautical engineer has taken a snapshot showing two clear UFOs over the River Dart in Devon. He had the camera examined and found that there was no dust on the sensor. Nine seconds after the objects appeared, they were gone. He knows this because he took two shots nine seconds apart. He did not see the UFOs when he was taking the pictures. Normally, UFO photos come in the form of blurs, but these are very clearly round objects, not birds or planes. Probable unknown.

Your Out There editor hears that UFO sightings and close encounters are becoming more and more common. There is no reason to doubt this aeronautical engineer's report.
