The sighting was seen at 06.10am on Thursday 25 January 2001 in Ventnor on the Isle of Wight, England. My name is ((name deleted))t and I am writing to you on behalf of a friend ((name deleted)) who does not own a computer. This is her account of what happen. I was walking to work at 06.10am on Thursday 26th January down Alpine road in Ventnor when something caught my eye in the sky. The object round and bright, with colours of red, white and blue and were circulating around the object at rapid speed. In the middle there was a small round black shape inside the flashing lights. The object was hovering over houses for about 8 to 10 minutes, then started to move at slow speed towards Ventnor downs and then stopped, it hovered again over the houses for 5 minutes and then moved slowly towards Ventnor downs. The object moved again at slow speed into the darkness where I lost sight of it. The time was around 06.31am. Could you please let us know what you think it was?. Thanks. Yours sincerely, ((name deleted))t. PS I cannot speak for ((name deleted)) whether she will speak to you, but I will ask her and let you know.
