On 30th May my friend “Johnny G” got in touch with me to excitedly discuss details of a formation of objects he had just witnessed and recorded on video over Tile Cross. This report covers what took place and provides an analysis of the footage.

Sighting Details

At approximately 2.35pm on 30th May 2021 Johnny was visiting his parents on Haywood Road, Tile Cross. He was sitting in the back garden with his sister Racheal, her boyfriend Tom and their children. His parents were in the kitchen at the time. It was a wonderful sunny, clear and still day.

They were sitting at a table playing flip the bottle. Johnny happened to look up into the sky to the North North West. He noticed 6 brightly glowing white points of light at an elevation of approximately 45 degrees. They looked almost organised into three pairs rather than being randomly scattered. Some of them appeared to be stationary while others were moving around in a strange manner, travelling back and forth slowly in arcs. They looked to be at very high altitude although it was hard to judge this because of a lack of point of reference.

Johnny got the attention of the others present in the garden and everyone started to watch the objects. As they watched they noticed some objects vanished while others appeared. The witnesses discussed what they might be. Because of the apparent altitude and manoeuvres being performed they agreed that they did not look like balloons, helicopters or planes. After about 2 and a half minutes Johnny realised he should try filming the objects to send to myself for analysis. At this point he started recording on his Poco F3 smartphone.

It was hard to tell whether anything was being picked up looking on his phone screen, so he only recorded for 18 seconds. He and the other witnesses continued to watch for a further few minutes. After this time the objects seemed to slowly vanish one by one.

Once the objects had departed he took a better look at the video footage he’d captured. He was surprised to see that not only had many of the main objects been picked up, but other fast moving objects had also been captured which he had not noticed directly. He immediately contacted me via Whatsapp to confirm what had just happened.

Other Witness Statement

On 2nd June I was able to speak with Racheal over the phone to hear what she recollected. Below are the details she provided:
