07-04-2012: UFO Over Audenshaw, Manchester, UK 

[Report received 10-04-2012]

Location of Sighting: Audenshaw, Manchester
Date of Sighting: 07-04-12
Time: 18:10
Witness Name: Geoff

Witness Statement: I was sat dining with family when I spotted a strange object in the sky, We regularly see planes, helicopters, and Chinese lanterns but this stood out as something different.

As I watched this object it seemed to rotate and change in size, there were no lights just a dark shape. I grabbed my camera and went back to the dining room and looked through my zoom lens and could see the object to be two shapes rotating but due to the shape it changed size. I snapped off a quick shot which I will send.

I always try to discount natural causes, but on this I am stumped. I know the photo isnít great as there are no indicators to size, the UFO was roughly about the size of a Chinook helicopter, but when I got the camera it was in the middle of the sky but through the lens I could see the UFO spinning, but in a controlled way, not wobbling but rotating smoothly. Because of the shape being a sort of oval it kept looking like it changed size as it spun.  It was not moving at a great speed, but definitely spun on a perfect axis as I witnessed through my cameras view finder.

One reader comment:

Hi Geoff,

'I live In Blackburn and it looks strikingly similar to what I saw on Saturday afternoon. I pulled my car over and could not stop staring at it before it sped off at a great speed. I did not have my mobile on me to take a picture though but you have caught a great shot here. What I saw did not making a noise.'
