Reported: 5/9/2008 3:46:26 PM 15:46
Posted: 6/12/2008
Location: Cannock (UK/England),
Shape: Oval
Duration:50 minutes
Flashes in the sky, inside fake clouds. Silhouetted Oval, Computer died when camera was activated for recording.

May I point out, I had written a report tenfold more descrptive than this beforehand as the happenings were going on, but for the well-timed PC crash, described below.

At around 21:30, I sat down to watch a movie from my bed, on my pc - both directly next to my window. Partially through the movie, at about 22:30, I saw a flash in the corner of my eye, out of the open window.

I dismissed it, until it happened several times. I figured it was a manipulation of a flashing, from a window, in the flats across the street. I grew intrigued and stared at the sky. There was absolutely no sound made by the flashes, no definitive lightning form or such - and the weather was definetly not the sort for such.

I saw a flash in the clouds, silhouetting a black, stretched sphere. At arm's length, my fist would be the same size as the area of the flash.

at 23:15, I began to type down what time I saw the flashes. I recognised a pattern forming, the flashes every 5 minutes - 23:13, 23:18. The time was nearing 23:23, so I pulled out my webcam, turned on Windows Movie Maker, set the cam up, hit record...then my PC turned off. It powered back up straight away.

No more flashes have occured after this.

It came to my attention later on in the report, that there were no clouds in the sky upon closer inspection, (earlier my eyes were watching a movie on a 22" monitor, blanking out the details of a black night sky), yet I had clearly seen clouds, reflecting the light of the flash.

I wish my previous report had been saved, for I have a lack of memory for accute detail in wordings.

If you have any questions, I would be happy to help.
