WHITE GLOBES OF LIGHT

Location of Sighting: Sutton Coldfield Date of Sighting: 23.04.2012 Time: 2.15- 2.30 am It was gone past midnight whilst I was immersed watching a late night movie. It was a rather cloudy night, however my gaze turned towards the sky and at the corner of my eye I saw the intense bright moon casting its luminescence hiding behind the clouds, suddenly the next minute I glimpse at and I just saw it just moved. That's when I paid attention for I assumed this is rather bizarre ,more so strange for the moon to move at that velocity, subsequently as I observed the cloudy night sky ; There was a white globe of light which one could visually measure it to the size of the moon around the Maney hill area where I live . I was entranced and mesmerised as it started moving in a random yet circular fashion. I wasn't convinced so I looked more closely to find 4 to 5 more globes of white light similar to the size and shape moving in a random pattern. I ran upstairs to wake my husband up ,for this wasn’t a visual hallucination as I don’t drink , it was fascinat! ing as he too witnessed it and presumed they were laser beams .... I wasn’t convinced at the explanation as I seen laser beam displays, besides I questioned him “who would have a laser display at 2.30 am in the middle of the night”. Besides if the light is reflecting from below one can visualise the path or beam from below. There wasn't any trace of torch or laser light shining from below as it was above the clouds and very high . He assumed it was perhaps solar flares and is the aurora borealis. I disagreed as the pattern had no resemblance to that of a veil of northern lights, it was just pure white globes of light , which one can purely mistake it for a moon hiding above the clouds . My hubby tried to capture it on camera, as we couldn’t capture the image we concluded that the digital camera was inappropriate and didn’t work for night vision images. Consequently I just watched intently and the pattern repeated itself once more and the globes of light disappeare! d, eventually the globe of light moved in the opposite directi! on of ou r house and vanished.

The next morning I posted a query in our local Sutton Coldfield observer if anyone had witnessed anything or perhaps experienced what I had visualised for indeed it was rather strange and mysterious phenomenon. There were no replies as it was late Sunday night and not many people would be awake when Monday commences as the working week. I am very analytical and believe in the rules of science, nevertheless still pondering if it were a natural phenomenon ... Not sure. I am convinced that this is not a prank. From my understanding of physics the incident light whilst shining from below wouldn't reflect in such an intensity , more so from above no way was it a real image . The globes of light were too bright and too large... It doesn't sound logical at all. Either it is perhaps a military operation or something that cannot be elucidated. Rather unfortunate that the images we captured are not lucid. Furthermore as I was flabbergasted during the incident consequently my adrena! lin pumping impeded my ability to reflect or perhaps act logically to record the occurrence on an iphone was indeed an utter failure. Nonetheless I am convinced what I witnessed from the inception of my peripheral vision was not an illusion or a visual hallucination. It will be etched as a memory in my subliminal system ... That I am affirmative!
