Birmingham UFO Group Case Report

Release Date: 14/10/2021

Elaine got in touch with me in late September 2021 to discuss a sighting she had recently had while on holiday in Corfu. When we discussed this incident she also mentioned she had also had a previous sighting back in 2018 at her home town St Austell, Cornwall, during which she had managed to photograph the object in question. This report covers this experience in depth and includes analysis of the photographs.

Sighting Details

Elaine is a nurse and wakes up early most days for early morning shifts. On the morning of 12th November 2018 she was walking to her car which was parked on Chough Crescent. It was just before 7am and a pleasant still morning with only light cloud. Due to the time of morning there was nobody else around.

As she walked along Mitchell Road, she looked up into the sky to the South East saw what appeared to be an highly reflective object, which was reflecting the early morning sunlight. She grabbed her smartphone and took a photograph of it, before continuing to walk along the road, keeping her eye on it as she did. The object seemed to be slowly moving to the East.

She turned the corner into Chough Crescent, walked a short distance along it and crossed the road to the lay-by where her car was parked. Here she took a second photograph of the object.

She continued to watch it for a short moment but then had to get into her car and head off to work.
