24/01/2007 - Birmingham - Metallic Rectangular UFO Sighting


Thanks for replying to my E-mail, I have been trying to tell people about my sighting ever since it happened and unfortunately I have only found one person so far who has belived me. People either think I'm lying or I'm nuts (I'm neither). I'm an open minded person but you can be sure that I have investigated this from every possible angle before commiting myself to reporting it. I'm used to taking a sensible approach to these things because I'm a researcher in paranormal investigations. I do have a drawing which is fairly clear and I will E-mail it to you when I have scanned it. Fortunately I'm fairly good at drawing and remembering details, I also should have quite soon an animation of another sighting that I had of what I think is the same object a few weeks ago.

The Report

Whilst out shopping on 24th January 2007, I saw something very odd in the sky to the south/south east. It was about 11:30/11:45am and I was leaving the Fort Retail Park near the Jaguar plant at Castle Vale, Birmingham. The sky was very clear and atmospherics allowed for excellent visability, in fact the moon was visible in the sky. The object was metallic grey, highly reflective and stationary at around 500-700 feet altitude, and would estimate its size at around 90 feet long by approximately 20 feet high, rounded at either end with two potruding bands about a quater of the way from each end. This was not an aircraft or an helicopter as it was perfectly still and there was no vapour trail, there were aircraft in the sky at a higher altitude which were leaving a vapour trail and also a light aircraft which seemed to be heading toward it. At this point the object seemed to wink out. Around a mile further on I again caught sight of the object in a slightly different position in the sky, I then lost sight of the thing all together due to the direction in which I was travelling. The object was not a weather balloon or airship, I am certain of this because the object was stationary and on that day there was quite a strong wind blowing. I was able to observe the object properly because although I was in a moving car I was not the driver. I should just like to say that as I have lived in the area for many years I am familiar with the various flight paths too and from Birmingham International airport, i am also perfectly aware of what commercial aircraft look like and familiar with their habits on approach and take off, so I'm not likely to have mistaken a commercial jet for this object.

Yours, XXXXX
