More UFO activity over Leighton
AFTER last week’s report concerning a reader who saw a strange, triangular-shaped object flying over the skies of Leighton, a couple have written to the LBO telling of their strange, close encounter on the same evening.
An email from a woman ,who only identified herself as ‘Christine’, said: “After reading the Observer this week and finding out that someone has seen what they think to have been a UFO, I can confirm that both my husband and I also witnessed this on Friday, September 9 between 11.30pm and midnight as we walked along the Woburn Road in Heath and Reach heading towards the direction of Leighton Buzzard.
“A bright orange light larger than an aircraft’s landing lights and travelling at a considerable speed passed over us heading in the direction of Milton Keynes. As it passed above us we were aware that it was very quiet, almost silent, it looked like the shape of a triangle with rounded corners and a number of bright orange lights.
In another strange siting, although more likely to some sort of military plane, reader Harvey Fryer said he saw an unusual sight over Leighton on Monday, September 19.
He said: “At around 3pm, I saw what looked like a very low-flying grey military plane (a Hercules-type). From my flat in Town Bridge Mill, I could see the plane about half a mile from the canal, in the direction of Soulbury. It then banked sharply, in the direction of Dunstable. It was so low that I thought it would crash.
For more on these sitings see the September 27 LBO.
