Before this siting I was a UFO sceptic It was about 9pm on quite a cold October day the light had obviosly gone and my friend and I were sitting smoking in a park near my house. We noticed this light come up from the ground in a northerly direction. The light was quite faint and obviously about 7-10 miles away.
(The reason it caught our eye was because there had been a lot of police helicopters in the area, the weeks prior to it due to a rising crime rate. Knowing that if it was a police helicopter and it came overhead they would probably call the ground troops to get us out of the locked park) The light went from side to side and up and down and we still thought it was a helicopter. Then suddenly two more lights rose from the ground and the first one shot up at a tremendous speed. The other two start moving eratically too, so we carried on observing for at least an hour, some of the lights disappeared, but as soon as they did another few came from the ground. By now we had ruled out a helicopter and maybe thought it could have been a Harrier jump jet. Some of the brighter lights had smaller lights shooting out of them at very fast speeds, then flying upwards and disappearing. There was also on only two occasions a blue searchlight type light beamed down to the ground in a cone shape. However this light was ommited from absoltely nothing and quite some distance from the moving white lihts.
Suddenly one of the white lights got really bright as if it were pointing towards us. So we paid attention to that one, it started moving slowly to the right and then stopped after it had got considerably closer to us. It stayed hovering for about 2-3 minutes then jumped upwards, darted downwards and from side to side. That then made us realise that this was no conventional aircraft of any known kind.
The light then got even brighter and started moving in our direction, as it got closer we could see that it had two round shaped bright headlight type lights at the front and flashing red and green lights on the bottom. The carft did move as if it was finding it difficult, tilting from side to side. It was about 100ft above the ground as it passed over our head so we got a real good look, it was a shiney dark yellowy coloured matchbox type shape, with a pyramid or roof shape on its underside, the flashing green and red lights were on the peaks of the roof shape. There was no sound apart from a strange wering sound.
BUT To top it off as it past over our heads it morphed into a green tailed and green passenger window lit 747 at the same height off the ground(around 100-200 ft), a plane at that height makes a massive amount of noise but there was still none. Once the UFO had changed shape it gained altitude and almost completly disappeared within seconds.
We bothed looked at each other and were speachless, also as we walked home there were thousands upon thousands of white star lights in the sky moving around almost like the underside of the spaceship in Independence Day the Movie.
I have submitted this report to a British site some years ago and forgotten the address, the reason for saying this is because I drew a picture and attached it, but can't attach it to this one.
