Bell shaped UFO taking on water - 2nd Feb 2009, Cinderford area (Welsh border)
My thanks to JS for submitting this Interesting report.
I had returned home from work and gone to bed at 1:30am. At 1:45 I was just dozing off when I woke suddenly because there was an extremely bright orange light shining through my window.
The light was so bright that it illuminated part of the room even through thick curtains. The light was pulsing and my first thought was that the house was on fire.
I got up and opened the curtains and could barely see anything because the light shining in was so intense. After a few seconds my eyes adjusted to the light and I could see that it was coming from what I can only describe as a small bell shaped UFO at the bottom of my garden which is about 60ft away from the window.
The light appeared to be pulsing quite slowly but it is possible that this effect was due to the intensity of the light. The UFO was hovering above the small stream at the end of my garden and bizarre though it sounds water was being drawn up into the craft.
I was unable to determine if there was an opening because of the angle but it appeared to simply be flowing directly up into the craft in a column about 3ft wide. I would estimate the craft to be about the same size as a VW beetle car.
It was so bright it was difficult to look directly at it but it did not appear to have any hatches, windows, doors and no other features.
The craft was around 10 to 15 feet above the stream and was bobbing up and down slightly. This continued for what I'd guess to be about 30 seconds before the water stopped flowing and the craft began to move away,
Its movements weren't very graceful, it almost seemed to stagger to the right and left as it cleared the wooded area by the stream.
Its movements near the ground were quite clumsy and it seemed to be making adjustments to its path in a rather robotic way to clear the trees, sort of 2ft this way, 3 ft that way and then back in the direction it came. Like a robot trying to work out a path rather than an intelligent pilot moving a craft.
It then rose sharply and shot off to the west at amazing speed. As it rose in the air it tilted dipping one the nearest side to me downwards slightly, it did not appear to rotate and there was no noise whatsoever at any time.
My vision was extremely blurred afterwards and when I closed my eyes I could still see an afterimage for around 4 hours after the event. For several days my vision was tinted red at times leading me to fear I had damaged my eyes though thankfully I don't appear to have suffered any long term effects.
Curiously for three days afterwards no birds came into the garden which is really strange as my garden is normally full of birds feeding on the bird table. The crows nests which are in the trees around the stream also appear to have been abandoned completely features or markings.
