Dumbell-shaped object with bright light and roaring noise.

Date: Sunday 27th July 2008.
Time: 10.20 pm.
Location: Warrington, Cheshire, UK.

Just to set the scene: This Sunday had been particularly warm (at least by UK weather standards) and quite humid. It had been like this for a couple of days.

We have a 3 year old daughter, who was getting a cold and had a bit of a temperature. Combined with the heat, she wasn't particularly happy. My wife was upstairs with her and I was in the living room downstairs. The lights were all off, and I was sitting in my recliner listening to a podcast on my laptop. The windows were open at the other end of the room, and next to me the patio doors were also open, in order to let a breeze blow through.

The patio doors lead out to decking in our back yard. I can also see the front of the garage, which has a motion activated light on it. (This tends to go off when people walk past, or sometimes when cars go by. It's quite sensitive.) Just as my wife came back into the room at 10.20pm, there was an extremely loud roaring noise outside. The garage light came on (which may have been coincidental) and I saw the object flash over the garage, from the direction of the house (ie from 'above' me), and disappear.

I went out to the decking as quickly as I could but it was nowhere to be seen.

I will give the best description I can. Imagine a dumbbell (two balls joined by a cylinder). Imagine that the two balls were flattened discs, with black centres. The bar joining the two discs had a bright white light on it. The two discs reminded me of turbojet fans, but this may have been suggestion caused by the noise. From the light in the middle the object seemed to be made of a shiny metal.

I only saw it for about 1-2 seconds, it moved very fast. It looked about the size of a small car, but I have no way of judging how high up it was. My wife heard the roar but didn't see the object, as she was too far away from the patio doors.

I have seen several UFO's before. These have been a silver disc flying next to Concorde (at age 12, an din broad daylight), a blue light hovering over some woods at night (age 13-14) and a rotating triangle with a light at each corner at night from a car (also at appx age 13-14). I am 39 years of age now.

I know of this site from the Jeff Rense show, and know that you welcome reports from anywhere in the world.
