Note saucer-like shape of this UFO + tilt.
Date- Tuesday 25th, October 2016
Place - Seen from Droylsden, Manchester, (Copperas Lane playing field) along the canal.
Witness statement: "I was walking down the canal on the way to work, when I saw two bright lights hovering in the clear, but dark sky.
The lights were very bright; I stood and watched for about 2 minutes, but I didn't know what to make of it; then the light on the right moved closer to the left one, then it crossed over it, then moved again hovering directly above the left one, the left one didn't move.
I had to pass some trees, but I could still see the lights through the branches, I looked down because I was going to set my phone to video but as I passed the trees, literally 20 seconds the lights had gone, this had lasted for about 5 or 6 minutes from when I first seen the lights.
This is a true and accurate account of what I witnessed on the morning of Tuesday 25th October 2016." end.
Additional statement from the witness' father:
"I can only say it as it was; its not dramatic, but very very accurate, have you any explanation to what it could be?
I have asked a few friends and some say it could be balls of lightning, or birds wings create a wax which could shine, yet when I super-zoom it on my phone it has a black edge around it, although that could just be the phone compensating for the poor light around it, but the light doesn't look right; if it was something like a large laser, surely it would have to have a surface to hit or bounce off, but the sky was clear."
Hope to hear from you soon." end.
