The #1 Paranormal News Site
This is my first post on ATS and I would like to share one of three UFO sightings I had in the mid 80s, this perticular sighting was of what looked
like a ball of fire and wondering if anyone else has seen this phanomina.
The sighting was from a bus stop on a hill which had a clear view over a harbour, I don’t know the exact date but would have been 86-87, it was
summer as I was catching the 7.45pm bus to work and it was still daylight although it was overcast, anyway I’m waiting for the bus and I look over
the harbour and see this ball of fire and I immediately think that an aircraft is on fire but as I’m watching it I realise that it isn’t moving so I
then think maybe it’s a hot air balloon on fire but it isn’t moving and then I notice a red light on the bottom of the object that is pulsating, the
object didn’t move ( or appear to) the whole time I was looking at it about 3 minutes.
So now totally perplexed and realising I’m looking at something weird I’m determined to see if it moves but I could see the bus coming down the road
and for once wishing it was late, just as the bus arrived at the stop ( I took my eye off it for a second) the bloody thing had disappeared, gone. I
shot on the bus and looked out of the windows that faced the harbour but the object could not be seen.
I would say the object was at least 2 miles from my position and looked the size of a 1p coin held at arm’s length, so quite big.
One more thing, the harbour is an important naval base.
