My signting was a long time ago (1981). Although at the time I went to the Police station and reported the sighting and told everyone for days. (No one really believed me), so in all these years I mainly keep it to myself. Now i'm older I think the encounter was actually quite significate. I was 18 yrs old at the time.

This is what happened: I was driving back home from work at night. I worked in Salisbury and lived in Warminster (30min drive). I came over a brow of a hill (at the top of the hill) which then went around to the right. There just starting to cross over the road right to left was a UFO. It was at lampost height, as long as a bus and the best way to descibe it is; similar to some of the pictures you see being drawn of them, a flying saucer. It was going very slow and it was that low I braked and stopped the car. I then sat there and watch it cross over. (It was country side either side of the road). It had port holes/windows on the middle section with lights that could be seen inside. But there was a very distintive thing about it and that was the noise.

It made a very deep intermitted humming noise, which at a guess must have been its engines. Being so close there was no mistaken the fact on what it was. I can still picture the craft in my mind now after all these years and relise that I am quite lucky to have exterienced that. It doesn't really bother me that people don't beieve you, I'm now married with kids and tell them the story and they don't belive me either. Anyway I know what I saw, it was that close there was no mistaken it for anything else.
