Posted: 4/26/1999
Location: Walsall, West Midlands (UK/England),
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object emitted beams
I saw two circluar lights attached to a dark shape, which moved silently and quickly and disappeared.

I was outside the house and facing it. Suddenly appeared a large, dark object in the sky. It was impossible to tell what shape it was, It seemed to be flat, and possibly triangular, but that is only a guess. The two lights were parallel to each other. They each emitted a white light. The lights were fixed on a point in front of the object, and as I was looking at it from an angle, it was hard to see on what it was focused.

There was no sound at all, and it moved behind the house, where it disappeared.

I live about 20 miles from an airport but this could not have been an areoplane. Firstly there was no sound at all, and we can hear the sound of planes clearly even when indoors.

Secondly, for the lights to have been the size they were, the aeroplane would have to be landing in our backgarden.

No one else saw the object, and as it lasted only a short while I could do nothing but watch.
