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).

31, 12, 2013: UFO Over Albert Road, Poole, Dorset, UK

[Please scroll down page for latest on this case.]

Witness Comments: Not sure if this is ball lightning.

It appeared late on New Years eve. It is not a lantern as I was looking at it and I know what a lantern looks like.

This was a ball of white light. Look at how bright the gardens are illuminated at the beginning. Unfortunately, some quality is lost from camera to recording on CCTV hard drive and then conversion from arv file to avi file.

However, this quality is quite good compared to watching the original playback on the monitor. For those that don't know, almost all colour cameras revert to black and white mode to enhance night vision clarity.

The only problem with that is the CCD becomes super sensitive and is prone to "whiteout" on images. The object was very bright as are the street lights causing over-saturation. You can compare the object with the street lights. As a footnote, the object was on a direct heading for the local airport.

The object is approx 3 meters above the hedgerows at the beginning of the video. In the video, I noticed an atmosphere disturbance surrounding the Sphere of light, and considered the distortion as well as the Sphere, to both be a sort of bleed-through effect of that Sphere traveling just outside our visual frequency range.

Hi my name is ****** ***** I live on Albert Rd Parkstone and was witness too and interacted with an unknown object just off Albert Rd on the night of the 31st Dec 2013. The object came over the local corner shop and stopped directly above me for around 4-5 minutes,  I have a good enough understanding of the laws of physics as currently understood to know that this object was in direct violation of what is currently able to fly featuring no visible method of propulsion or noise, seeing something you know should not be possible right above you is an incredibly disturbing experience. I can remember very clearly the shape and apparent make up of this machine.

All I can say is that the whole thing was at once marvellous and terrifying, it knew I had seen it, it flew directly towards me and it just stopped there right above my head seeming to look at me as I looked at it!

The best description would be like a sunflower seed I've maybe drawn it a little to fat. The thing I always wondered about are the panels as for something this advanced to look like it's riveted together is very strange.

I have a reasonably knowledge of the current understanding of physics and flight and I can safely say this absolutely broke any laws we are aware of, absolutely silent and completely stable in the air. I hope this is helpful.

PS: I've seen a much better quality version of the film showing something flying down my road,  it was clear to see all the gardens being lit up like daylight and showed it flying completely out of sight. [End]
