Date of Sighting: 16th September 2014
Witness Name: Bob
Witness Statement: I was in a place called Ouzel Valley Park which is a beautifully quiet area of Greenland in Milton Keynes. I was at the top of a small hill sitting on a bench reading my newspaper. I finished reading and turned around to see an object floating above the trees about a quarter of a mile away. I stared at it for quite some time watching what it was doing and trying to figure out what it was.
It was a black object with a white light in the centre.
I thought it could either be a Chinese lantern or possibly a helium balloon the type to advertise companies as it was moving back and forth very smoothly. However, it kept turning around and when it did it was a perfectly flat and long and as the closest business was several miles away and we were in a rural area with Greenland the balloon theory was looking doubtful.
There was no wind, not even a gentle breeze as all the leaves on the trees were still so any type of powered aircraft could be ruled out.
Shortly after I stood up and moved closer it began to rise and become smaller very quickly until it became a tiny dot and vanished into the cloud.
The clouds were very low on that day. As I was walking home a light aircraft flying low was above my head but I could not see it and the weather report that day was for low cloud and mist. Whatever the object was it was below the cloud possibly a hundred maybe two hundred feet high.
I am a man in his mid-forties and level headed. I am sceptical when it comes to UFO’s as I believe that every sighting must have a rational explanation. However, I know exactly what I saw and I simply cannot explain it. It was not a balloon, a lantern or any powered object.
It hovered at a constant height and moved from left to right again very smoothly for the three to four minutes I observed it before rapidly gaining height, shrinking and vanishing. No wish to be contacted but thought someone might have an interest in this.
