16/06/2007 - Quinton - Black Oval/Triangular UFO Sighting


Approx 8.32pmI witnessed a strange object in the sky..I live in Birmingham . I have had an interest in military aircraft since the age of 14, now 32. I know the signature patterns of aircraft and helicopter strobes and flight dynamics so the identification of an aircraft I can make instantly. I have been an amateur astronomer for over 10 years and own my own 10" Newtonian telescope with observatory so even the faintest satelite or space anomaly I can identify. To put it short, my eyes are quite well trained and not as naive as the general public.I have had a keen interest for most of my life with Ufology and have read many if not most of the ufo literature.

Timothy Good has received a copy of this email. I have read many case reports and sightings so I know what could be easily described as a ufo when a plain answer is available..Thats a little about me so that you can see It would have to be something strange to catch my eye and completely baffled me..
Heres my sighting,.
I was standing by my patio door having a cigarette and my wife had just gone in the bath, whilst smoking I noticed a black object in the sky approx 3 miles away (1 mile from Birmingham city centre) at first it could be confused with a hawk hovering at close range, but over a heavily populated area, I think not..I continued to watch the object as my mind was trying to match what i was seeing to an object I could relate to, i couldn't.
The object was black, no lights no sound.It seemed to be oval shaped and on ocassions changed to a triangle shape. Visibilities was very good, clear sky with a few rain clouds to the horizon and a few brillant white clouds which were being illuminated by the sun..I watched for an estimated 1 min 30 secs before accepting that this could be a ufo.
I have a 9 moth old daughter and just she was born we decided to purchase a digital hard drive camcorder.I decided to fetch this knowing more than likely when i return the object will have disapeared. I returned with the camera and noticed the object was still there, only now it was on the move. I powered up my camera and started to film the object. The digital display on the camera is approx 3 inches in size so I couldn't tell if i had the object in view or even in focus, but i continued to film.The object moved over the trees and towards the horizon and finally diapeared behind a cloud..I stopped filming and took a few minuetes to gather my thoughts on what i had just seen. My wife soon came down from the bath and i told her what i had witnessed, her usual reaction to this subject is a load of nonsense but she seemed interested. She thought it may be genuine if i can't identify it, who knows..Another point to this incident is that we live directly under one of the flight paths for aircraft circuling to await there landing at Birmingham international airport. The sky above us is always busy with air traffic. I didn't see a single aircraft for over 1 and half hours which is very strange for an international airport at weekends..My ideal reactions would have been to have notified the local police of a potential unidentified object within a flight path and even contact air traffic control as reading as many ufo books as i have i know how important recordable data is, but strange enough i did what most general public do, i thought how strange and just sat down going over in my mind what i had just witnessed. The only plausable thing i did was to email UFORM straight away..Although the obect was quite far away, with a trained eye i could just about identify its shapes. We decided to watch the video to see if you could see the little dot in the sky and to our amazment we captued 2 mis 32 secs of the ordeal, and the footage is very clear.
you can even see the automatic focus of the camera intermitantly experiencing difficulties in keeping the object in focus.
The focus was set to infinity but with the object being in the distance and trees to the rear of my arden being in the shot it was making it very difficult for the camera to concentrate on both items, although this slight problem the footage is very clear and amazing..
