UFO taking on water - 2nd
Feb 2009, Cinderford area (Welsh border)
I had returned home from work and gone
to bed at 1:30am. At 1:45 I
was just dozing off when I woke suddenly because there was an extremely
bright orange light shining through my window. The light was so bright that
it illuminated part of the room even through thick curtains. The light was
pulsing and my first thought was that the house was on fire.
I got up and opened the curtains and
could barely see anything because the light shining in was so intense. After
a few seconds my eyes adjusted to the light and I could see that it was
coming from what I can only describe as a small bell shaped UFO at the bottom
of my garden which is about 60ft away from the window. The light appeared to
be pulsing quite slowly but it is possible that this effect was due to the
intensity of the light.
UFO was hovering above the small stream at the end of my garden and bizarre
though it sounds water was being drawn up into the craft. I was unable to determine if
there was an opening because of the angle but it appeared to simply be flowing directly up into
the craft in a column about 3ft wide.
I would estimate the craft to be about
the same size as a VW beetle car. It was so bright it was difficult to look
directly at it but it did not appear to have any hatches, windows, doors and
no other features or markings.
craft was around 10 to 15 feet above the stream and was bobbing up and down slightly.
This continued for what I'd guess to be about 30 seconds before the water
stopped flowing and the craft began to move away. Its movements weren't very
graceful, it almost seemed to stagger to the right and left as it cleared the
wooded area by the stream.
Its movements near the ground were
quite clumsy and it seemed to be making adjustments to its path in a rather
robotic way to clear the trees, sort of 2ft this way, 3 ft that way and then
back in the direction it came. Like a robot trying to work out a path rather
than an intelligent pilot moving a craft. It then rose sharply and shot off
to the west at amazing speed.
it rose in the air it tilted dipping one the nearest side to me downwards
slightly, it did
not appear to rotate and there was no noise whatsoever at any time. My vision
was extremely blurred afterwards and when I closed my eyes I could still see
an afterimage for around 4 hours after the event. For several days my vision
was tinted red at times leading me to fear I had damaged my eyes though
thankfully I don't appear to have suffered any long term effects.
Curiously for three days afterwards no birds came into the
garden which is really strange as my garden is normally full of birds feeding
on the bird table. The crows nests which are in the trees around the stream
also appear to have been abandoned completely.
