08-10-2008: Three photos of an unidentified,
shot at night in Putnoe near Bedford, Bedfordshire, UK by Gordon Dungavel.
Witness message: "Hi Ken & Hil, I was putting the
bins out late last night when I noticed a bright, colourful light shimmering and
dancing through the middle of a huge chestnut tree behind the back of our
I got out my digital and ran around the block towards Goldington
Green park for a better view.
A large half moon was visible to the left but
not the bright, kaleidoscopic light, which meant that it was emanating from the woods
behind a now fenced-off building that burnt down a while back, which we live behind. I returned
home, and again the light was jumping around behind the top middle of the
distant tree; putting my camera on full zoom I took several photos before the
light blinked out.
As I say, it was extremely colourful, and these photo's have not been
touched up; they come direct from the camera.
The sphere made no sound. Could it be an
orb or plasma energy of some kind?
I stood skywatching for a further hour
and saw nothing until it started raining.
I'll set up a tripod for tonight in
case hopefully it might return. Gordon"
