Welcome to B.E.A.M.S.

Founded in 1991, our society consists of a
team of active reporters and field investigators who
factually gather, study and disseminate evidence relating to Earth Mysteries, (e.g. Ley Lines, Terrestrial Energies and Ancient Site Anomalies), Strange Aerial Happenings, (e.g. Unidentified Flying Objects or UFOs), and The Paranormal, (e.g. Spirit and Psychic Phenomena).

05 04 2016 Unidentified Craft Seen Again Over Enfield, London,

05 04 2016 - enlarged photo with original size as insert:
Morphing aerial object seen at around 2 or 3 am over Enfield, London, UK

For anyone who might suspect that this object is merely a glimpse of the ISS (International Space Station) passing above Britain, please scroll down to near bottom of page and examine the data there.

Witness statement: "We saw 2 last night at around 2 or 3 am, but one was on the other side of our building but got photos of this one from my phone as our tablet was out of battery and I couldn't film it but I took about 5 pics, one after the other.

To the naked eye it was moving, and we were gutted that we couldn't video it as the object kinda' looked the same as last time."

These are the only times that the ISS was visible in the UK for the location and date seen by witnesses:

Date:   Brightness            Start                       Highest point                   End
Time        Alt.    Az.          Time        Alt.   Az.      Time        Alt.   Az
05 Apr    -3.4    20:55:25    10°    WSW    20:58:41    79°    S    21:01:01    18°    E    Pass type: Visible.

Summary: On Tuesday April 5, 2016 the ISS was visble from 8.55pm for 6 minutes, 10.31pm for 2 minutes -
rather than when the witness saw this in the early hours of 2 or 3 am.

For those interested, the details for April 04, 2016 were:

Summary: Monday, April 4: 8.11pm for 6 minutes, then at 9.47pm for 3 minutes - rather than when the witness saw this in the early hours of 2 or 3 am.

The International Space Station travels in orbit around Earth at a speed of roughly 17,150 miles per hour (that's about 5 miles per second!). This means that the Space Station orbits Earth once every 92 minutes!

Incidentally, we have checked around various places on the net and these figures tally with other sites which supply ISS flyover data; so, either NASA have got their pass predictions wrong by quite a few hours, (which would be virtually impossible), or what has been captured above Enfield is something odd indeed.

Below, for comparison, here is some time lapse footage of the space station; this was taken from a back garden in the UK by an amateur astronomer using a telescope.

Remember, our witness did NOT use a telescope, only a camera phone:

Taking everything into consideration we are left reasonably happy that the object captured over Enfield is not the ISS; but, as always in this subject - reader decides!
