UNKNOWN AIRCRAFT EMITTTING LIGHTS RED/WHITE (FALLING FROM SKY/ NO IMPACT)

DURING BETWEEN THE YEAR 1999 TO 2002 UNKNOWN NOW EXACTLY AS I DID NOT WISH TO COMMENT DURING THE TIME I AND A FRIEND WELL MY FRIEND REALY WITNESSED A QUITE LARGE LIGHT AS WE APPROACHED THE TOP OF HIS STREET HE STOOD WATCHING DRAW DROPPED AND PALE I ASKED WHAT WAS WRONG WITH HIM HE REPLIED "LOOK AT THAT, WHAT THE HELL IS THAT" I VIEWED THE OBJECT IN QUESTION AS IT MOVED ACROSS THE LEFT OF THE SKY LINE TOWARD THE RIGHT I REPLIED TO HIM "IT'S A POLICE HELICOPTER" HE THEN INSISTED SAYING "YOU WANT TO BET KEEP WATCHING IT THEN" SO I DID ALMOST MAKING A BIT OF A MOCKERY OF HIM BUT AS THIS WHITE LIGHT VERY SIMILAR IN BRIGHTNESS AND SIZE TO A HELICOPTER SPOTLIGHT PASSED FROM THE LEFT TO THE RIGHT OF THE SKYLINE IN A STEADY BUT NOT FAST SPEED, IT BECAME QUITE CLEAR THAT IT WAS NOT A HELICOPTER AS IT SEEMED TO GROW BRIGHTER AS IT CAME CLOSER TO THE MIDDLE OF THE SKYLINE IT THEN DIMMED AS IF IT WHERE A HOUSEHOLD LIGHT BULB IN EFFECT TILL THER WAS NO LIGHT AND THEN LIT UP GRADUALY INTO A VERY VERY LARG BRIGHT RED COLORED BALL OF LIGHT GROWING TO AN INTENSE BRIGHTNESS AND VERY LARGE MUCH LARGER THAN NORMAL SPHERICAL GLOW OF RED AND STOPPED HOVERING CENTRED IN THE SKYLINE OVER WHAT SEEMED TO BE RURAL PASTURES IN THE NO DISTANT FIELDS IN FRONT OF US I WOULD GUESS AROUND A THOUSAND MAYBE TWO THOUSAND FEET, THE LIGHT WAS INTENSE AND IT SEEEMED ALMOST LIKE IF YOU YOU IMAGINE A RED LAZER AT A LAZER SHOW EMITTED DIRECTLY AT YOUR EYES IF THE LIGHT WERE 3 DIMENTIONAL YOU WOULD SEE A RED 3D PRISM AS IT CROSSED OVER YOUR EYES IT WAS QUITE INTENSE AS IF IT WERE EITHER SCANNING OR TARGETING SOMETHING AS IT WAS NOT HOSTILE I WOULSD HAVE TO SUGGEST SCANNING US, WE WERE SPEACHLESS BUT WERE FROZEN IN A COMBINATION OF FEAR AND ASTONISHMENT THE LIGHT THEN DIMMED GRADUALY AS IF LIKE A LIGHT DIMMING WHEN YOU TURN OUT THE SWITCH, IT THEN REAPEARED IN THE SAME POSITION A SPLIT SECOND AFTER DEPLETING AND ONCE AGAIN BECAME A LARGE WHITE LIGHT, AFTER A SECOND OR SO IT BROKE UP INTO WHAT SEEMED TO BE 3 LIGHTS AT THE TOP OF A ! CILLINDR ICAL OBJECT IN A NEAT SIDE BY SIDE ORDER AND THE SAME SYMETRICAL LIGHTS BELOW (6 SMALLER WHITE LIGHTS IN TOTAL)THIS IS AN UNKNOWN GUESS BUT I'D ESTIMATE AROUND 50-80 FT APART MAYBE SHORTER THAN THAT AS THING LOOK LARGER IN THE DARKNESS, THESE 6 LIGHTS THEN FADED QUICKLY AS THEY DROPPED OUT OF SIGHT AT AN AWESOME VELOCITY WHICH I COULD ONLY COMPARE TO THAT OF A FIGHTER JET AT HALF SPEED I'D ESTIMATE A MINIMUM VELOCITY OF 300 MPH, WHAT EVER THIS WAS IS UNKNOWN BUT THERE WAS NO SOUND NO IMPACT OR SIGHT OF IT ONCE DESCENDED WHICH AT THAT SPEED WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE AS WE WOULD SEE EXPLOSIONS OR HERE AN IMPACT AT THAT VELOCITY IF IT WHERE A STANDARD AIRCRAFT. SINCE THIS POINT I KEEP A VERY OPEN MIND TO WHAT IS OUT THERE I AM NO BELIEVER BUT I DO BELIEVE IN HONESTY AND THE TRUTH I BELIEVE THIS TO BE A UFO BUT IT MAY HAVE BEEN AN ATMOSPHERIC PHENOMONON BUT I CAN'T REALY SAY ALL I KNOW IS THAT IT IS BY FAR THE MOST UNUSUAL SIGHTING OF AN AIRCRAFT I HAVE EVER WITNESSED. THE EXACT AREA OF THIS EVENT WAS AROUND THE SEDGLEY AREA OF DUDLEY, WEST MIDLANDS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM. I HAVE WATCHED SOMETIME AFTER THIS EVENT A SHOW CALLED THE BRITISH UFO FILES WHICH TALKED OF AN INCIDENT AT BENTWATERS AIRBASE UK THE EXPLANATION AND DESCRIPTION RECORD BY THE CREW ONE OF WHICH WAS A COMMANDER HOLT AT THE TIME WASTO ME VERY IRONIC AND ALMOST IDENTICAL IN NATURE AS HE CLEARLY STATES THAT THE CRAFT BRAKES UP INTO MULTIPLE WHITE LIGHTS AND EMITS WHAT SEEMS TO BE A RED LAZER WHICH HE STATES COULD ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS EITHR A TARGETING SYSTEM OR SCANNING DEVICE AS IT PASSED OVER THEM ALSO THE BREAKING UP OF THE OOBJECT INTO MULTIPLE WHITE OBJECTS THIS IS BY FAR TO IRONIC AND SEEMS ALMOST ABSOLUTELY IDENTICAL IN NATURE TO HIS RECORDED AUDIO REPORT. IS IT POSSIBLE THIS THING HAS COME BACK TO THE UK AGAIN IT AS I STATED BEFORE WAS AROUND AS A GUESS THE YEAR 2000-2002 WHICH I BELIEVE IS CLOSE TO THE SIGHTING AT THE AIRBASE. POSTED BY PHYSC (UK)
