A strange white object appeared in the sky on two seperate occasions.

This weekend (July 29th - 30th 2006) is the "Sunderland Air Show" and i was outside trying to catch a glimpse of any airplanes that may pass during the show that was taking place around 40 minutes drive away from my home in Tyne and Wear, England. I noticed that there were many commercial aircraft being diverted from the airspace in which the show was taking place as i saw plane after plane pass i then noticed an object near the airspace in which the planes were flying. At first i thought it was just another plane but then i noticed it was stationary in the sky and there was no sound that i could hear coming from it. The object then dissapeared and reappeared again and then did the same about two times more. I tried to get a video but i could not find the object i was seeing in the viewfinder as the sun was in my eyes and also the object was so small. I instead went to get my Dad who came out but when he did the object was no longer there. I thought no more of it and continued on with the watch for planes in the skies and now i was watching for UFO's also. This sighting occured at around 1:50pm on July 30th 2006.

A few hours past and then at around 4:55pm i noticed an object the same to the one i had seen at 1:50pm going across the sky to the west i aimed my camera and pressed the record button but i did not know were to aim the camera as the object was not appearing in the viewfinder the sighting lasted for seconds and i got some very poor footage but its still footage i would like to show. I have slowed the footage down 18X so you can get a better look the object appears to the top right of the screen and is quite hard to see but if you look closely and view it a couple of times you will see what i am getting at. I am positive that what i saw was not a plane of any kind.

If you would like to see the video please visit - and take a look at the "My Encounters" page i would be interested to get any feedback on the sighting.
