Posted: 4/18/2012
Location: Penrith (UK/England),
Shape: Light
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
Strange light passed overhead silently for seven minutes then disappeared.

It was 7'oclock on a dark December morning, the skies were clear,the moon was crescent shape with one star near it. I was looking up towards the moon when a light caught my attention hovering silently over head but at a great distance. I followed the light as it passed overhead with my digital camera, I grabbed a passerby and asked her to take a look at the light to see if she knew what it was, she had no idea what it was. The entire episode lasted 7 minutes before it just vanished. It was only when I zoomed in on the light after the picture was taken that i realised that i was looking at more than just a light! There were several lights that changed formation with no noticable change in colour. Coincidentally, there were several other sightings over West Cumbria during this same week.

((NUFORC Note: Witness submitted two photos, but they are simply a squiggle of light in one, and a dot of light in the other. We have requested an accurate date from the witness. PD))
