Bourne, Lincolnshire UK White Light

Posted: September 22, 2008

Date: August 14, 2008
Time: 9:50 p.m.

Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: White light.
Weather Conditions: Mid level broken cloud.

Description: Bright white light in the sky approximately 4 miles North of Morton, Lincs. Altitude approximately FL100. Speed when moving, approx 170 kts. Light was too large & intense to be the landing or navigation beacons aboard a commercial or military airliner (I work with Boeing & Airbus aircraft daily) and there was no Mode S data from the local area to indicate the presence of commercial aviation at the time.

Moved slowly to East over the course of 2 minutes, appeared to descend, then the light dimmed, moved further East (approx over the West edge of Dyke, Lincs at same 4 mile distance), flashed bright once again & then vanished.

Cars on Dyke road from A15 stopped & turned back to witness this (can see the road from my location) & police were in attendance within 5 minutes. The light disappeared at approximately 2157.

Shortly after, military air activity (too low for commercial aviation in this area) was witnessed from the North East heading towards the previous location of the unidentified object.

TV/Radio: None known.

Thank you to UFOINFO for this report.

Interesting many years before a friend amd I were parked in the car on a country road in the bourne area. We experienced four bright white lights about the height of a electricity pilon.
These were in a very tall formation two lights either side. Very very bright flash that was it. Very strange very unexpected and no logical explanation. There were no structures near by at all.

This has been an on going sighting in the Stamford, Ketton, Emmpingham, Deeping and Bourne areas since around year 2000. People describe a low level light, attached to a craft, but no sound. After hearing lots of people say they had seen it I saw it myself on two occasions 1) When driving with a friend through Uffington. 2) With a group of friends at the Casterton slip road off the A1. Rumours were always abound that it was millitary aircraft tests from the bases around here. However, after a long hiatus, it would appear that this summer, the sightings have started again.
