Birmingham UFO Group Case Report

Author: Dave Hodrien

Release Date: 01/03/2019

UFO witness Barrie is 64 years old and lives in Hall Green, Birmingham. He regularly enjoys sitting out in his back garden and star gazing, and has stared up at the night sky for many hours. Over the years he has understandably seen many unidentified lights at a distance. But he has also had three highly impressive sightings of solid structured objects. The most recent of these sightings took place in the early hours of 27th December 2009. His other previous sightings took place many years ago, but Barrie still remembers them clearly. They have had a lasting effect on him, and changed his views of the universe forever.

This report will cover each of Barrie’s UFO sightings, beginning with the oldest.

1964 UFOs Sighting

Barrie’s first impressive UFO sighting took place in 1964. He was sitting in his back garden star gazing, close to the back door of his house on Brooklands Road. It was a clear and still night, and quite pleasant. He suddenly noticed in the sky to the South two objects moving in his direction. He soon saw that the objects appeared to be two silver coloured discs, which were reflecting the moonlight. They were about the height of a low flying helicopter.

He was amazed by what he was seeing, and got up from his chair. He walked down the garden, watching as the discs approached. The two objects were in close formation, and flying diagonally from one another. They were completely smooth with no visible markings on them, and were completely silent.

The discs flew overhead and Barrie turned round to watch them continue their journey to the North. They were lost from sight behind the roof of his house, and banked up into the night sky out of view. Because of the way that they flew on a straight course and maintained formation throughout, Barrie was convinced that they had been under intelligent control.

1967 UFO Sighting

On a clear still evening back in 1967 Barrie was sitting in his back garden of his house sky watching. Suddenly from behind him over the roof of the house came a massive boomerang shaped object, flying at quite a low altitude, Barrie estimates about 400 feet.

The main bulk of the object was dull brown in colour. Along its underside were a number of defused white coloured evenly spaced round objects. They looked like large lenses mounted onto the base of the UFO. It almost appeared like the UFO was carrying them, they did not appear to be embedded in its surface. There were no other visible markings on the object at all, it was completely smooth. Barrie immediately assumed the object was a massive craft of some kind. It was so huge it covered most of his view of the sky as it passed silently overhead. Barrie’s garden is 30 feet across, and it was certainly larger than this.

The object continued on a straight flight path to the South and Barrie watched it until it disappeared out of sight behind neighbouring housing. Due to its low altitude, Barrie felt that the object may have been crash landing, and almost expected to hear an explosion after it had gone out of sight – but this didn’t happen.
