UFO sighting in Epsom

First published in News by , Chief Reporter

Twenty unexplained flying objects were spotted in the skies above Epsom at the weekend.

Peter Collins, 69, of Albert Road, a retired fitter for petroleaum a research company at BP spotted the strange noiseless lights at about 11.40pm on Saturday night, July 16 and insists they were not Chinese lanterns.

He and his wife both saw the lights from their bedroom window and said they were travelling across the sky in a North Easterly direction.

He said: "I was in the bedroom and I saw them coming across.

"There were five initially spaced apart and then another three in a line and then odd ones coming up.

"I think there must have been about 20, but I can’t believe what I saw.

"I have never seen anything like it in my life and they were definitely not Chinese lanterns.

"I though no-ones going to believe me.

"I cant think what it could be."

Well if he is telling the truth, i highly doubt they were Chinese lanterns and they definitely were not a pointless fleet of weather balloons or planes, could you imagine how many people out there who have seen things like this are scared to talk about it?

There is a non-profit organisation here in the UK that use specific protocols that make direct contact with ETi. Peter Collins and any one else who would like to report UK sightings and, more importantly, wants to be taken seriously by a registered UK research organisation contact UK based CeRPER (Centre for Research and Policy on Extraterrestrial Relations) who are the UK equivalent of CSETI.

I saw the same thing from my bedroom, but to be honest as it was a Saturday night I assumed they were some sort of lanterns from a party. They were headed towards the Toyota Building. They did make me look twice though.

Exactly what I saw in Wandsworth a couple of years ago, they actually put this in the guardian too. It was definitely not chinese lanterns as appeared moved fastly up and then came back down again in a triangle shape. Someone from Battersea filmed it too, there were five of us that reported it.

Standing outside we saw the first one and at first presumed it was a plane but it was silent and travelling very fast...went right over us and it was bright orange but seemed to be changing greenish it was a rectangular shape...left a trail behind it as it moved away...Went back inside and we were having the p**s taken out of us when we looked out and saw another one flying over!!
