My name is Wayne. I am 43 years of age. This event took place in 1997. It has haunted me ever since. My son was 9 years of age at the time. We had gone shopping and on the way back we stopped off to rest in an old cemetary not far from where we live.

It was a boiling hot day. There were no clouds in the sky at all. As we - my son, girlfriend at the time and myself were sitting, my son suddenly looked up and saw what he thought was a black balloon in the sky. He shouted, 'Dad, look at that balloon. It is moving funny'. My girlfriend and I both looked toward he was pointing. The object was black all over. It was sort of oval-shaped and moving in slow motion.

The movement of the thing was weird. It was sort of flipping over in the sky - like a coin would move if you tossed it. As it was flipping over and over the edges of the object seemed to glow a sort of bright golden colour. The sun was behind us. This object was moving toward the sun very very methodically and slowly.

I timed this thing with my watch. It moved just over our heads and eventually disappered as I lost it in the glare of the sun. The whole event lasted about 10 minutes. To this day, I still have not got a clue as to what this thing was. It was definately being controlled - but by what.

Since that sighting, my son has seen the same object 2 times more recently. It always seems to appear in the Toxteth area of Liverpool. My son said that, again, it was tossing in the sky, moving very slowly and the edges of the object were gleaming a golden colour. The last two sightings of this object were 2005. In all cases, the object was silent.
