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 or markings.
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.

and put on display near the Kecksburg fire station
Subsequent to the witness submitting this report he was prompted to try and find some other report, or image, that was a closer match to what he saw.
In turn this led him to the famous Keksburg episode that occurred on December 9th in 1965, in Pennsylvania USA.
The Kecksburg UFO incident occurred on December 9, 1965 at Kecksburg, Pennsylvania, USA. A large, brilliant fireball was seen by thousands in at least six states and Ontario, Canada. It streaked over the Detroit, Michigan/Windsor, Ontario area, reportedly dropped metal debris over Michigan and northern Ohio, and caused sonic booms in western Pennsylvania.
It was generally assumed and reported by the press to be a meteor.
However, eyewitnesses in the small village of Kecksburg, about 30 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, claimed something crashed in the woods.
A boy said he saw the object land; his mother saw a wisp of blue smoke arising from the woods and alerted authorities.
Others from Kecksburg, including local volunteer fire department members, reported finding an object in the shape of an acorn and about as large as a Volkswagen Beetle. Writing resembling Egyptian hieroglyphics was also said to be in a band around the base of the object.
Witnesses further reported that intense military presence, most notably the United States Army, secured the area, ordered civilians out, and then removed the object on a flatbed truck.
At the time, however, the military claimed they searched the woods and found "absolutely nothing".

The witness said on viewing the various images that people had drawn at that time, they were a 100% match for what he saw. Although he did not see any hierolyglyphics on the craft.
BELL SHAPED UFO WITH STATIONARY YELLOW LIGHT, AND FADING IN AND OUT, RED BRIGHT LIGHT.
I was on the motorway heading towards plimmerton coming from pukerua Bay when I saw a Bell Shaped Object in the Sky.
It had a Constant Yellow bright light on it, and also had a bright red light which was fading in and out very slowly.... The light could have been rotating like a Light House.... Im not to sure if it was because I was driving ...... I've seen a planes lights before and this didn't look anything like a planes lights And I know it wasn't a satellite because I've seen one of them crash before.... I was coming back from delivery some pizzas in pukerua bay. It was not very far away from the motorway. It was sitting stationary in the sky.
Fifteen objects in changing formations seen south-southwest of Nowra. All heading south at first, range from 5km going away to 15-20km, then turning and hovering and performing "ballet like" maneuvers. Total observed time around 30 minutes from 11pm to 11.30. Objects seen through binoculars were "bell shaped with steady light on top and fluctuating coloured lights around the bottom rim. All seemed to be translucent".
