Birmingham UFO Group Case Report

In early January 2022 Shaun Watson got in touch with BUFOG to report a recent UFO sighting he had experienced. When I reached out to him to find out further details he also reported having a previous sighting in the same area. This report covers this incident in depth.

Sighting Details

On a Tuesday evening in February 2021 Shaun was on his way home after dropping off his niece who he’d been babysitting. It was around 9.30pm and the weather was clear, with the stars visible in the sky. He began driving South East East along May Lane towards his house. There were no other vehicles on the road at the time.

He suddenly noticed three bright white lights in the sky ahead of him in a triangular configuration, with two at the top horizontal to one another and another third light lower down and between them. It was quite hard to determine the distance of the lights but he estimates they were about 500 metres away.

The road was quite straight giving him a clear view of the lights. As he continued along May Lane he realised the three lights were moving. This change in position seemed to be relative to one another, convincing him that they were three lights attached to a singular large object, the main body of which he could not make out against the sky. If they were indeed attached to a large triangular object then this seemed to be rotating on it’s X axis in a clockwise direction.

Shaun managed to observe the lights for about 20-30 seconds as he drove along the road. As he reached his house he turned right onto the drive, briefly losing sight of them.

Rather than step out into the road (which would of course have been dangerous), Shaun headed through to his back garden to get a better (and no doubt safer) view. Unfortunately the lights were no longer visible.
