Isle of wight UFO sighting (january 27th,2008) 2 latest updates
Posted by dandare on February 8, 2008
According to Isle of wight county press (posted 8th february,2008), “Spate of UFO sightings over Island“. It says
“REPORTS of UFO sightings have been flooding in, following Frank Webb’s account last week [..]”.
“Three workers at Calbourne Classics, Richard McFarlane, 27, Barry Holland, 49 and Paul Westmore, 35, saw what they thought was a UFO the same day as Mr Webb’s sighting.
Mr McFarlane said: “It was a yellow ball in the sky. It had a haze around it and it wasn’t moving at all. We watched it for ages.”
But Andy Linington thinks it might well have been an aircraft.
He was near Ryde Town Hall when he saw a yellow object moving west to east, just as Mr Webb had described.
He said: “”It turned and started going towards London and it wasn’t until it was above me I saw navigation lights on its nose. I think it was an aircraft”” (extracts from article).
There were over witnesses, who give brief accounts.
These were all accounts from people who e-mailed or phoned the media, with some of the sightings going as far back as August 2007. These reports are of limited use, as only a small amount of information is given out.
Update: 11th february
In the latest news about ufo sighting the newspaper reports “UFO answer could lie in space” (8th feb,2008). However, in the article another question is also posed, in that it seems that a triangular UFO has been seen on a regular basis on the island?
