Halifax, West Yorkshire - mid-90s
It was back in 1993 or possibly as late as 1995; I really cannot remember the date exactly, but know it was around that period.
The sighting took place in Halifax, West Yorkshire in the town center; above what was then a nightclub called the Zoo Bar (now demolished).
The nightclub had an outside drinking area which was probably the size of a small car park where there would be always quite a few people mingling about and so.
Anyway on this particular night Iím guessing there must have been around 30 people roughly outside who watched an extremely low black triangular craft just glide overhead and over the roof of the club at a speed of no more than 10 mph.
This thing was flying so low it was out of view as soon as it passed over the roof of the club. I would say 30 or 40 feet above the actual roof.
This happened around anything from 12.00 am up to 2 am; I canít remember the exact time. Although hazy I do remember the under belly of the craft, it did have detail to it, contours and ridges protruding, it definitely wasnít smooth or flat.
The only lights I saw on it were one rectangle green light and one red spaced almost next to each other in the middle and towards the back of the craft. These were quite small up to the size of the craft. These are the only features I can recall. I would say the craft was maybe 40-50 feet across; no more.
Thatís basically the bulk of the sighting, but hereís the strange part, when it glided overhead everybody was looking up at it but as soon as it went out of view everybody just went back to drinking, talking etc. as if nothing had happened, including me.
Even went it passed overhead itís as if you were indifferent about what you were seeing, there was no "Wow! Whatís that?" or anything. Iím pretty sure everybody felt indifferent to it.
It was only the next couple of mornings it started to register somewhat, as if being nudged by your own mind, but not being able to grasp it or bring it fully to conscious awareness or shrugging it off as unimportant.
In fact, it may have been a year or so before I finally THOUGHT about it. Even now I canít grasp it.
I decided to write this after reading an article on this site about the British soldier and his encounter with a black triangle and also of another sighting (on a different site) with similar aspects to mine.
Iíve tried looking for other reports about this event, but had no luck, but then again I've only just reported my account 20 years later.
I posted this sighting on another site before this although this is a more detailed account.
