A black and white hovering object was seen over Milton Keynes
A UFO was sighted over Milton Keynes before zooming into the clouds and disappearing.
The object was described as black with a white light in the centre by the witness, a man in his mid-forties. His account of the UFO was posted to celticwisdom.co.uk yesterday after the sighting at 11.36am on Tuesday, September 16.
The witness has no explanation for the object, which he initially thought to be a balloon or sky lantern. After watching it for some time, the witness said “it kept turning around and when it did it was a perfectly flat and long.”
Despite cloud coverage on the day, the object was perfectly visible, and for three to four minutes before “rapidly gaining height, shrinking and vanishing.”
The witness said: “I was in a place called Ouzel Valley Park, which is a beautifully quiet area of Greenland in Milton Keynes.
“I was at the top of a small hill sitting on a bench reading my newspaper. I finished reading and turned around to see an object floating above the trees about a quarter of a mile away.
“I stared at it for quite some time watching what it was doing and trying to figure out what it was.
“It was a black object with a white light in the centre. I thought it could either be a Chinese lantern or possibly a helium balloon the type to advertise companies as it was moving back and forth very smoothly.
“However, it kept turning around and when it did it was a perfectly flat and long and as the closest business was several miles away and we were in a rural area with Greenland the balloon theory was looking doubtful.
“There was no wind, not even a gentle breeze as all the leaves on the trees were still so any type of powered aircraft could be ruled out. Shortly after I stood up and moved closer it began to rise and become smaller very quickly until it became a tiny dot and vanished into the cloud.
“The clouds were very low on that day. As I was walking home a light aircraft flying low was above my head but I could not see it and the weather report that day was for low cloud and mist. Whatever the object was it was below the cloud possibly a hundred maybe two hundred feet high. I am a man in his mid-forties and level headed.
“I am skeptical when it comes to UFO’s as I believe that every sighting must have a rational explanation.
“However, I know exactly what I saw and I simply cannot explain it. It was not a balloon, a lantern or any powered object.
“It hovered at a constant height and moved from left to right again very smoothly for the three to four minutes I observed it before rapidly gaining height, shrinking and vanishing.
“No wish to be contacted but thought someone might have an interest in this.”
