Silbury Hill, Wilts, UK - Triangle UFO, 8th August, 1998
(Footage is repeated x 4 for purposes of study)
Account based on an article written by Donald Fletcher:
Christopher Martin and Jonathan Browning had been seated atop the summit of Silbury Hill for about an hour since 9pm. They were watching, and video recording a Lunar Eclipse, which they were lucky enough to be in the right place for. However, noting that the time was now a little after 10pm, plus the fact that they had a long drive, all the way back to east London ahead of them, it was though to be a good idea to start making some track.
So, upon packing away their gear they made their way down, along the narrow
winding pathway, when Christopher then noticed a fairly large bright object
heading in from the Northwest. Initially he assumed it to be an aeroplane, but
as the object drew closer he could determine that there were three large and
exceedingly bright lights on the underside of the craft. Having in his
possession a Sony CD-TR840E Hi8XR video camera, Chris hurriedly unpacked it and
trained the camera
onto the object and began filming. As he zoomed in he immediately noticed
that the object appeared to be of a black triangular shape with three bright
lights positioned at the corners, with a smaller red light at the centre.
Trailing slightly behind this highly illuminated object was a single glowing orb that looked to be separate from the main body of lights.
The camera was operating with it's infra-red mode activated, which Chris quickly disabled at approximately twelve seconds into the filming, this afforded him with a more defined and coloured image in which he noticed that there were several other lights situated along both of the objects leading edges. The triangle then started to bank sharply and began to move with increasing speed, in a north easterly direction.
As the object was performing this manoeuvre Christopher noticed that the
single light appeared to change its distance relative to the main object,
further indicating the independent nature of the light.
At this point Christopher stopped filming for a few seconds, in order to stretch out the tension that had built up in his hand. When he resumed filming, the object had shrunk considerably in size, indicating the great distance it had gained in those few intervening seconds and then it was gone.
