From September 2012 onwards Peter has experienced five very distinct UFO sightings. The majority of these have been of very unusual shaped objects, some of which have displayed highly unusual characteristics or impressive flight manoeuvres. These sightings deeply affected him on an emotional level, and ever since he has avidly looked into the UFO subject. Distraught at the media’s general portrayal of the subject he eventually decided to get in touch with both BUFOG and Richard Hall to report his sightings.

This report covers each of his sightings in depth, assessing the evidence and looking into possible explanations for each.

03/09/2012 – U-Shaped UFO

At approximately 4.25pm on the afternoon of 3rd September 2012, Peter was out walking in Wokingham on Molly Millars Lane. It was warm and sunny, with a clear sky above. He decided to give his friend a call on his mobile phone.

As he spoke on the phone he walked past an electricity tower, about 50 feet away from him. He happened to look up and spotted a very strange looking object. On approach to the tower at an angle of about 60 degrees was a U-shaped object, no bigger than 6 feet across. It was metallic light grey in colour and had what appeared to be prongs sticking out from both of the front points. The object was turning back and forth, clockwise then anti-clockwise. It was about 20 feet higher up than the top of the pylon. The object was travelling at between 40-50 mph and appeared to be intentionally moving towards the pylon.

As it reached the top of the tower its speed dramatically reduced until it stopped. It also ceased rotating. Peter was now able to get a better look at the object. Its surface texture was very unusual, somewhere been solid metal and reflective glass. The object began to ascend vertically into the sky, rising slowly until it was just a glinting point of light. Peter suddenly noticed two of his work colleagues nearby. He called them over so they too could observe the UFO.

By this time the object was at quite high altitude. Here it seemed to be joined by two other flashing points of light. The three points formed a perfect triangular shape, which remained for between 10-15 seconds. All three then went out of sight. In total the sighting lasted for about 15 minutes, so the witness had a clear view of the object for a decent length of time. Sadly his mobile phone was a low tech one without
