I am writing to you about a UFO sighting. Firstly, I would like to stress that both myself and the other person who witnessed the UFO would like to remain completely anonymous.
I would also like to state that I do not wish to give the location out of where the UFO was seen, as I feel this would compromise our identity, all I would say is that the sighting happened very recently in the UK.
It was on the morning of the 30TH October 2010, at approximately 9:45 AM when both myself and a fellow police officer were driving around on routine patrol when we witnessed the UFO.
Suddenly we both noticed a large, black triangular shaped UFO in our line of vision, this was witnessed by both of us at the same time through the windscreen of the patrol vehicle. The UFO just seemed to materialize, I mean one minute it was a normal, empty cloudy sky, then suddenly out of the blue this huge thing just appeared.
I slammed on the brakes and we both watched this huge, black triangular shaped UFO performing mind boggling maneuvers high up in the sky. The UFO was at some distance and some height, but it still appeared to be a very large craft to the naked eye, the UFO would disappear and reappear in different parts of the sky.
Sometimes it looked like it had covered several miles in an instant, the UFO also performed aerial maneuvers unlike anything either of us ever witnessed before, it was like the UFO could simply perform any kind of maneuver and turn as it liked, and some of the speeds we witnessed the UFO perform were just simply mind boggling.
After what was roughly 2 minutes, the UFO simply blinked out and was not visible. After roughly 1 minute the UFO reappeared, we pulled the patrol vehicle over and got out to have a better look at what we were confronted with.
The UFO was now much closer and at a much lower altitude. What we saw was a huge, black triangular shaped UFO still at considerable distance, just completely frozen to the sky. The thing never moved for about 45 seconds, and then suddenly started to slowly move from right to left.
We watched as the UFO slowly drifted across part of the sky before suddenly just blinking out and completely disappearing. The thing never shot off or took off at great speed, it just simply wasn't there anymore, almost as though someone had switched off a light.
We were completely baffled as to what we had witnessed, as the thing was extremely large, completely silent, no jet engine noise at any point, no vapor trail. We can't say what it was that we saw, it is hard to say and imagine that what we saw was simply a terrestrial man-made jet-engine aircraft of some kind, some might say that we witnessed some kind of top secret, highly classified, deep black project, experimental hypersonic/supersonic stealth aircraft.
I mean I suppose it is possible that we witnessed something of that nature, but we both got the same feeling that we were witnessing something we should not be seeing, something unexplained that did not fit into any box in one's mind, it was a very strange experience.
Obviously we can't say that the UFO was extraterrestrial, as we have no solid, concrete proof of such a claim, but whatever it was, it was like no aircraft that either of us have ever witnessed before, even state-of-the-art military jets don't come close to the way that the thing moved and performed, and the way it disappeared at will and reappeared in another part of the sky miles away in a millisecond, and the turns and speed of the thing make us believe that what we witnessed was simply not possible to be performed by humans, the G Force and speed, and how it just vanished and was simply gone without a trace.
The actual UFO itself is hard to describe, it did look and appear to be metallic or made of something similar looking to military jets, no cockpit could be witnessed, the UFO was simply a plain black, triangular shaped object.
The sighting lasted a good 4 minutes, we did hang around for roughly the best part of an hour, but we never saw the thing again. At the time of the sighting, the only photographic equipment that we had any access to was a tiny key-ring camera, which my colleague owned.
The camera is no bigger than an inch and only takes very low resolution photographs. My colleague took 2 photos of the UFO, we had no idea that we had even captured anything on camera, we had to wait until later that evening to see the photos.
After work we went for a few pints of bitter and discussed the sighting in great detail, later we had a look at the photos on the computer. At first we were rather disappointed with the quality of the photos, but then as my colleague pointed out, you have to remember, these 2 photos were captured on nothing more than a tiny, plastic camera which actually came out of a Christmas cracker, so on reflection and more closely detailed scrutiny of the images, we came to the conclusion that the photos are not that bad after all, and do clearly show the huge triangular shaped UFO at distance passing through the sky, and although the photos are not the best quality in the world, they do give some idea of the sheer size of the object that we were confronted with.
After careful consideration and much thought and debate, we have decided that we will share the sighting and photographic evidence with people who have an interest in the UFO subject, on the agreement that we both remain completely anonymous at all times. We have not even told anyone else about this experience, we have simply kept it to ourselves and that is the way we would like to keep it, and we are confident that the officer in the photo cannot be identified due to the low quality of the image, so we are happy to share the photos.
I would like to add, we do not wish to speak to any kind of UFO researcher, and will not be answering any more questions regarding the sighting, we feel we have covered the sighting in enough detail in our above report.
