UFO Photographed in 1992, Over Cheesefoot Head Nr Winchester, Hants, UK
Witness statement: "Back in 1992, my wife and I visited Cheesefoot Head on several occasions where we went for walks in the countryside there; unfortunately, this was not a time when we could afford a decent stills camera or a camcorder either, only something that was very basic and little better than an Instamatic.
As a result, we missed getting shots of several unusual aircraft that we witnessed flying low over the car park; this was sometime in September 1992: However, we did get a picture of a mysterious illuminated object that remained virtually stationary in the sky for about forty minutes as dusk approached.
Ken, there is a strange story behind this 1992 photograph: In an incident during March 1993, the photograph & negative went missing from the back of a YMCA charity shop where my wife worked as an unpaid volunteer; she had put the photos in her handbag after collecting them from the chemist where they were developed.
The door of the room where her bag had been placed was locked, and there were bars across the window.
When she went to get her handbag she found it missing; the shop was searched but her bag couldn't be found; so the police were informed, and the credit cards in her purse were cancelled.
The police didn't find the missing bag at the time, but, three years later, it mysteriously reappeared in a flat we had moved into at the end of January 1995!
We came home one day and there was the handbag laying on our bed, but without the wallet of photos or anything else inside... and even more incredibly, this UFO photograph was subsequently found months later in a drawer at our flat! It was as if someone, or something was playing a huge joke on us."
"In later years I went through a period when I could get lots of digital stills shots of UFO activity from our front window. That was when we lived on the other side of town."
