Reported: 4/30/2004 10:22:11 PM 22:22
Posted: 5/4/2004
Location: Emley Moor, Huddersfield, West Yorks (UK/England),
Shape: Disk
Duration:approx: 1 1/2 minutes
Date: 1998 Time: 10:00 p.m.

Then in March 1998 we had another sighting. On the moors I noticed a strange ambient light as I looked out of the car window as I drove along. I initially thought someone was having an outdoor party (it was almost 10:00 p.m.), As I drove along the road I could see what it was. It was a flying saucer at ground level about to take off. As I watched it lifted into the sky, rotating like a giant Ferris wheel. 90 seconds later it was high in the sky.

My wide saw it too as did some clients of mine who were in the area at 8:00 p.m.. So it had been there for 2 hours. This sighting - within 300 yards is situated the TV transmitter station - the tallest building in the area, manned 24 hours a day; those guys must have seen it, filmed it, reported it, etc., etc. Yet not a word appeared on the local TV News. Yet a few months afterwards the local TV News DID carry a different flying saucer story which they could explain (it was a mobile camera belonging to the BBC flying above a football ground).

Thank you to the witness for the report.
