Location: Castleside (UK/England),
Shape: Cigar
Duration:5 minutes
I saw a huge cigar shaped object, pulsating red then orange, like a heartbeat, my horse saw it first.

I was in a field on a hill above Consett with my friend. It was Sunday. I had gone to check-out my old Thoroughbred mare before going home.The mare became agitated & started to sweat--the veins on her neck stood out. She flung her head up & looked up at the skyline. I followed her gaze & saw a huge cigar shaped object hovering just above four trees. It was pulsating red, orange ,red, orange like a heartbeat.I could not see any windows in it. I was terrified & could not speak --I just hung on to the horses mane--dumbstruck. Finally I shouted my friend's name. She turned towards me (she was some way away from me)As she did so , the huge object flew up, and away in a high parabola, incredibly quickly. Sadly she did not see it, but saw how upset both the horse & myself were.I was terribly shaken by this & have never forgotten it.
