2005 to 2010 - Saint Helens - White, Metallic & Glowing UFO Videos

Birmingham UFO Group Case Report Author: Dave Hodrien Last Updated: 07/07/2010


Usually, UFOs are only witnessed once at a particular location. However, occasionally there are cases where UFOs return to the same area multiple times. A classic example of this is the infamous Rendlesham Forest incident where a craft returned to the same place three days in a row. This sort of incident provides a great opportunity to capture evidence of the UFOs presence. The key witness in these sightings is named Jason. He is 36 and lives in Saint Helens, Merseyside. He claims to have witnessed the same type of UFO up to twenty times since 2005, sometimes with other witnesses present, and he has numerous video tapes of the object to prove it! This report will look into these pieces of footage, as well as some of the other sightings where the object was seen through binoculars but not captured on camera.

The objects he keeps witnessing in the skies over where he lives appear to be white glowing or silver reflective saucer shaped craft. Jason describes them as fat discs with domes on top and at the bottom, and he believes they are about the size of a bus. With some of the later sightings Jason has felt like the objects are flashing and having some sort of interaction with him on a subconscious level. Could these really be extraterrestrial craft or is this a case of misidentification? First of all let’s take a look at some of Jason’s sightings and video segments.

Summer 2005 Sighting

Jason began spotting the UFOs in the skies over Merseyside back in 2005. In the summer time (He cannot remember the date but it was a Saturday) Jason decided he would buy some binoculars to observe the objects he was seeing more closely.

That evening when he returned home, he went out into his back yard with them to see if he could spot anything. Amazingly one of the objects came over his house! It travelled for about a quarter of a mile quite high up in the sky. It then did a right angle turn and stopped. It remained motionless in the sky for 45 minutes, before ascending upward until it was out of sight. Jason watched through the binoculars for the entire time. No-one else was present during this sighting.

August 16th 2007 Sighting

It was a bright sunny evening in the middle of August 2007 and 9.19pm. The sky was clear with very little cloud. Jason was outside when he spotted the UFO crossing the sky. He was immediately familiar with how it appeared. He grabbed his camera and attempted to take a still photograph of the object, but then realised he was in movie mode and was filming it instead. The object was heading in a south-westerly direction. It appeared to be quite high in the air, and was moving at quite a speed on a straight path.

This footage is the closest video footage Jason has managed to get of one of the UFOs so far. On the video it looks like it is glowing white, however Jason says this is because of the contrast, and there are also pink and green tinges in it.

The following evening at 7.20pm, Jason was once again outside and looking around the sky to see if he could spot anything unusual. Amazingly he spotted two of the objects twisting around each other almost playfully right above his house. The movement patterns reminded him of two birds, but he is certain this is not what they were. He went inside and got his camera. When he returned there was only one of the objects still visible and he started to film it.

His wife came out too and also saw the object, though she assumed it must be a plane. Jason describes their appearance as “two blobs stuck together”. He filmed in total for about 15 minutes, during which time the object moved a short distance across the sky, and then started to ascend until it was out of sight.

15th September 2007 Sighting

It was about a month after the two sightings in August, and 3.35pm in the afternoon. The weather was once again very sunny. On this occasion the object was seen moving from west to east above Jason’s house. He believes it was between 10000-12000 feet high. The object was as usual completely silent. This time the object appeared to be silver in colour and reflecting light rather than glowing white, but he cannot be sure of this fact.

By coincidence while he was filming, the children living next door let go of a silver balloon. Jason decided to get some footage of this also to show the difference between it and the other object he was filming. When he tried focusing back on the object again he found it had vanished.

Fifteen minutes after he had lost sight of the object, a black helicopter flew across the sky where it had been seen. Jason does not know if this is related to the object in any way or not, but he managed to take some video footage of it.
