A "spectacular" display of dozens of UFOs has been
reported in the skies over the West Midlands. Eyewitnesses
told Sky News that up to 70 bright circular objects could
be seen near Halesowen. ~
Stunned residents watched in disbelief,
convinced they were viewing an extra-terrestrial spectacle. Each
object was encircled with lights and had lights in the middle,
according to witness Steven Randall who lives in Halesowen with
is wife and three children.
He said: "This was incredible and so spectacular. The lights
seem to climb into the sky to the north of us, just before 8pm
last night. A neighbour had shouted for us to come and look.
There were so many objects. From a distance they looked like
bubbles rising in a fizzy drink. Then they came towards us
and flew right over the top. Some were so close they were
almost touching and were only a hundred feet or so above us."
"The objects were absolutely silent and travelling at probably
twice the speed of a normal aircraft. They were all circular
and had 13 to 15 lights around the rim. Each had lights in the
centre which were flashing on and off. They went south at a
Birmingham International airport is to the east of the
sightings, but according to Mr Randall, the flight path comes
nowhere near the houses. "Aircraft are not allowed to fly over
this area. We regularly see air traffic in the distance and I
can assure you that this was something very different," he said.
WGFT Editor: In this approximate area, in 1994, at the
large Phoenix music festival, musician friends and myself
watched as five craft slowly approached over trees towards
the festival perimeter, they hovered in a stepped fashion
like a staircase. Just before this, we watched two white
lights slowly approaching each other, at the point they
nearly touched, they reversed direction. ~
