Near Miss Between Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon and Passenger Jet: Portsdown Hill, UK - October 2007
A witness saw an “oval/spherical shaped object “cross the path of an airliner near Portsdown Hill, Portsmouth. It was just after noon, in the daytime. He reported that the object accelerated very fast, narrowly missing the airliner. The MoD referred the case to NATO, and the RAF checked their radar tapes. They suggested the UFO could have been one of a number of low flying light aircraft that were in the area at the time.
