WHILE TRAWLING THROUGH UFO WEB SITES I CAME ACROSS A REPORT WHICH OCCURED ON SEPTEMBER 8 1970, IT INVOLVED A LIGHTNING JET THAT WAS SCRAMBLED FROM RAF BAINBRIDGE TO INTERCEPT AN OBJECT THAT WAS PICKED UP ON RADAR . THE PILOT GOT CLOSE ENOUGH TO GIVE A GOOD DESCRIPTION, HE SAID IT LOOKED LIKE A WHITE GLASS BALL WITH A CONICAL REAR END .IN 1970 I WAS 9 YEARS OLD I CANT BE SURE OF THE EXACT DATE BUT I KNOW IT WAS ABOUT 10 PM .OUR SCHOOL HOLIDAYS RAN FROM LATE JULY TO EARLY SEPTEMBER THATS WHY I WAS UP SO LATE IT WAS ALSO DARK AT 10 PM WHICH MAKES ME THINK THAT IT COULD HAVE BEEN SEPTEMBER, MY DAD RECALLS THAT IT WAS A WEEK DAY BUT CANT REMEMBER THE EXACT DAY .WE HAD BEEN OUT FOR THE DAY AND MY DAD WAS PUTTING THE CAR AWAY. WHEN MY DAD CAME IN HE SAID THAT HE WAS LOOKING UP AT THE NIGHT SKY, IT WAS A CRYSTAL CLEAR NIGHT ,HE SAID THAT HE SAW A LIGHT ABOUT THE SIZE OF ONE OF THE BRIGHT STARS HE SAID THAT IT WAS MOVING VERY SLOW THEN IT STOPPED,IT STARTED TO MOVE AGAIN ONLY A LITTLE BIT FASTER THEN STOPPED AGAIN,ALL OF A SUDDEN HE SAID THE OBJECT SHOT OF AT A VERY HIGH SPEED. I THINK IT WAS THE FOLLOWING DAY MY DAD SHOWED ME A REPORT THAT WAS IN THE LIVERPOOL ECHO NEWSPAPER, IT SAID TWO POLICE OFFICERS CHASED WHAT THEY DESCRIBED AS A FLYING EGG AROUND THE COUNTRY LANES BETWEEN KIRKBY AND SIMMONSWOOD THE DISTANCE FROM THERE TO WHERE WE LIVE IN ST HELENS IS ABOUT 9 MILES AS THE CROW FLIES.I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF THESE TWO INCIDENTS OCCURED ON THE SAME NIGHT, CAN ANYONE SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS
