Location: Shrewsbury (UK/England),
Shape: Triangle
Duration:1 minute
Two large triangle shaped craft shooting lasers to the ground above town.

At approx 5:45am, whilst out walking my dog with my wife before we set off on a trip to Angelsey in North Wales, we noticed some rather strange flashing in the sky to the South of Shrewsbury about one mile South of coordinates 52°41'16.4"N+2°43'58.4"W. We were walking on a field that between the edge of town and the A5 bypass, the sky was very clear and we could clearly see the Orion and the Plough constellations.

Whilst standing and looking at these my wife and I both noticed two large solid black triangle shapes appear over the hedge line to the South moving slowly. As they approached us, I would estimate that they were approx the same size as an RAF Hercules transport plane, and they both made a slight humming sound at around 500ft altitude. The slowly came across the top of the field when they both started to fire red/orange lasers down onto the ground from the front of them. The laser made a crackle as it hit the ground so our dog and us we clearly scared and decided to run back towards Oteley Road and Rowton Road area. The two triangle craft then moved above us and the humming was really clear but the lasers then shot down onto number 8 Rowton Road and made the roof glow a redish colour. Three cars stopped on the road and saw what we were looking at with one female driver getting onto her mobile phone to make a call.

Suddenly, both triangle turned on their axis in a 360 degree fashion and after moving forward a little tilted and shot straight up into the sky. There was another flash and then they were both gone!

We called the polcie who met us at 6:30am but they said it was just aircraft from the local airbase as there had been a nightime exercise taking place a few hours earlier. We specifically argued the point about the red/orange lasers but they said it must of been a reflection off street lights!

I can tell you now that they were in no way any reflection and having spent 20 years in the RAF myself these were no aircraft I knew of!.

This was a strange thing to witness and we have contacted the local press who have said that some other people had seen the same things in the sky but South of Shrewsbury over a village called Cound. Can anyone advise or help with this?
