Amateur astronomer spots huge triangular UFO over Sheffield, UK
An amateur astronomer who calls himself The Apologist Ufologist tells the story about when he witnessed a huge triangular UFO over his home in Sheffield, UK, on April 25, 2009.
In his own words:
So what did it look like, this object over my home town of Sheffield, South Yorkshire in the UK? Well, I’ve made a graphical representation for illustration purposes above. It was about 2130h UT on Saturday April 25th, 2009. It was coming in cold had been excellent with few clouds, and I’d just packed up my large Newtonian reflecting telescope and deposited it, along with its eyepieces in the garden shed. The seeing infact had been excellent with few clouds and despite a changeable preceding day with heavy showers.
I was finishing my astronomical observations early as I was at work the next day. In political correct fashion before I retired into the house, I stood in the back porch doorway enjoying a late cigarette. All of a sudden above the apex of next door’s roof I noticed a large V-shaped formation of five orangy red lights evenly spaced slightly east of zenith and moving extremely slowly in a north west-south east direction. Mesmerised, I began to realise that the lights were actually attached to a single object as they moved in an unchanging and even distance from one another.
