A Swanley contractor claims to have seen UFOs over Bexleyheath – almost 60 years after a flying saucer reportedly landed nearby. Tony Histed, who lives off London Road, pictured a saucer-shaped object in the sky around 11.20 pm on December 30. He said: “I just looked up and there it was, then it just shot off – it didn’t make a noise.” Tony Histed relives the moment he saw lights in the sky in Bexleyheath. In September last year, the contractor was working at building site off Briarfield Close when he first saw strange lights in the sky above King Harold’s Way during the onset of a thunderstorm. He said: “As I was walking out of the site, I noticed a bright light in the sky to the east I stopped and watched it as it came across the sky towards the storm.”One more appeared in front of it, and they both flew silently on into the oncoming storm. ” I went back to the site and when I got there I went up on the scaffolding when this orb came up off the ground followed by another orb. “They then levelled off and flew to the north east, the last one split into two and the re-joined again and then they disappeared.” The 51-year-old was shocked to find out that King Harold’s Way is famous in UFO-circles for a reported sighting in 1955. More than 30 people reportedly claimed seeing a circular craft with eight suckers hovering above the ground. Since then Bexleyheath has been listed as one of the top 10 UFO areas by expert and author Nick Pope. Mr Histed added: “When I looked on the map I saw that I was over looking the landing sites, it was just down the road from where I was delivering. “Now is this a coincidence or what?”
Two researchers have published an analysis of a reported close encounter last year between a turbo-prop near Perth and an object thought to have been a drone and concluded that it should be regarded as a UFO or unidentified aerial phenomena or UAP, to give it an acronym free of tabloid baggage. That incident, on 19 March 2014, was investigated by the ATSB, which issued this final report. (also shown below in text) This is what the ATSB says happened: On 19 March 2014, at about 0913 Western Standard Time (WST) a de Havilland DHC-8, registered VH-XFX was on approach to Perth Airport from Kambalda, Western Australia
When about 23km north-north-east of Perth, at about 3,800ft above mean sea level (AMSL), the crew sighted a bright strobe light in front of the aircraft. The light appeared to track toward the aircraft and the crew realised that the light was on an unknown object, possibly an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV.) The pilot took evasive action turning towards the west to avoid a collision with the object. The object passed about 20m horizontally and 100ft vertically from the aircraft. The pilot reported that the object was cylindrical in shape and grey in colour. It was at about 3,700ft AMSL and in controlled airspace. The crew did not receive a traffic collision avoidance system (TCAS) alert. The airspace below 3,500ft AMSL was military restricted airspace and the Australian Defence Force was not operating UAVs and was not aware of any UAV operations in the area at the time of the incident. The ATSB was not able to confirm the details of the object or identify any UAV operator in the area at that time. This is what the pilot in command of the flight told the researchers as they prepared their analysis.
* The pilot, male, age 26 utterly ruled out the possibility of the object being a weather balloon
* The object was travelling in the opposite direction to him, not merely hovering or floating
* He and the co-pilot registered “complete shock”
* Air Services Australia confirmed that no other flight crew reported seeing the object (via ground radio when he landed)
* When he thought the object might collide with his plane, he sought a heading change from ATC, but this was denied. He therefore changed course himself
* The object was still going “up,” as well as travelling horizontally when it passed his aircraft
* He estimated it was only 100m from his aircraft at most, he said it could have been as close as 30m
* It had the ratio dimension wise of a cigarette, i.e. long and thin
* He said it was green in colour, military green actually, even though the ATSB report cites the colour as grey
* The strobe light on front had a flash frequency of a second interval at most. It was whitish in colour, and not red, or blue, or any other colour
* The total duration of the event did not exceed 15 seconds
* A very rough estimate of the speed of the aircraft at the time was perhaps 450km/hr, despite being on a landing approach
* No other aircraft crew reported seeing anything. There was no radar image of the object. ASA staff saw nothing on radar
* It definitely went past the aircraft on the left hand side
* The pilot undertook a voluntary drug, urine test upon landing
* He has no idea what it was, and didn’t want it to happen again
*There were 53 passengers on board at the time
* No one told him, not to discuss the incident.
The incident is unexplained, and the mystery object doesn’t conform to the characteristics of model aircraft or UAVs as known today. The sighting was of sufficient merit to cause an ATSB investigation. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
DIAMOND SHAPED UFO SPOTTED OVER VENTURA CALIFORNIA
DECEMBER 20, 2014 …….. VENTURA CALIFORNIA
Shape: Diamond – Duration: 10 minutes
I was hiking down from Grant Park on the road that goes down towards City Hall, and I noticed a black craft flying basically above highway 33 at an altitude of about 3000 to 4000 feet (rough estimate). The craft looked like a hexagon (6 corners), though due to the distance, it was a bit hard to know if that was its exact shape. It was black in color. At times, it would turn sideways, and it was clear that it was flat as a board. It did not have an exhaust, but during the sighting, there appeared to be a whitish, halo effect around it, but only during part of the sighting. It went slowly over westwards towards the ocean and then turned in southerly direction and then slowly continued in a somewhat easterly direction thereafter. During the time that I saw it, it basically made a large “c” type of a travel pattern. Most interestingly, it seemed at the end to simply rise up through the clouds (though it did not increase it elevation for the first 8-9 minutes of the sighting). There were two other people who were also doing the same hike, and came and started to talk with me about the thing that we were looking at in the sky. They were as confounded as me. We all witnessed this sighing, and I have a video of about 3 minutes long that I took on my smart phone. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.
I was sitting outside in a chair in the yard observing sky as there has been a few strange events occur over the last few months that we have witnessed, however this is the first that we got photographs of and was the third time this object appeared, there’s been a couple of different ones since we’ve had this happening. My family members had travelled to see us on holidays so I was looking nightly hoping they could witness one of the objects also. At around 10.30pm the object appeared from the SE around the 25 degree mark, it just appears out of nowhere. It is noticeably brighter than the stars and planets and moves in various directions, up, down and from one side to another, not great distances across the sky however and it travels at various speeds, sometimes slow, others fast and at times appears to remain stationary, it didn’t go higher than approximately the 40 degree mark. When looking through binoculars it looks spherical like and emits many different colours and appears to spin and turn which makes it appear to change shape also with all of the different light patterns it emits. The colour of the object itself was olive/silver colour. It at times also would just fade out altogether and then reappear. With the naked eye it looks almost star like when they change colours when they are just above the horizon level but it is far more visibly noticeable. We watched it for approx two hours all taking turns to look through the binoculars as it was clearer to see what it was doing.
My mother was too scared to look through them to start but totally amazed once she did to see the movement of it as it spins which you don’t see without them. We weren’t sure either whether there was more than one or it was splitting into two or three or if it was just our eyes playing tricks because of the lights it was throwing out. My niece and nephew who she bought up were very excited and were giving us a commentary every time they got the binoculars. My 3 children present also were giving narratives of the other events we have witnessed since July as a few different things have happened and not always the same objects. We’ve lived here for 12 years and never seen anything up until a few months ago and spend many nights outside around the fire and in the pool and looking up as the kids play spot the satellites, this has been out of the ordinary. We all attempted to take video footage with our phones, various types, however they didn’t take very good pictures at all let alone footage. My daughter got her Olympus Tough model tg-820 and stabilised it on my car roof and other surfaces during the event and took multiple photos. No stars would show on her camera screen, we thought maybe due to distance and not being a powerful camera, this object was the only thing that would display. We were amazed at the photos as she was taking them as there was colour trails in some, from where they object had moved. We stopped watching it when the children advised they were tired and we went in to put them to bed After approximately 5 minutes we went back out and it was still there. So we observed for a little longer and then went to make a cup of tea and it was gone when we went back out. There were no clouds in the sky at all during the course of the event that evening and lots of stars out so we knew it wasn’t an obstructed view that made it disappear, we looked/waited for it for around another ten minutes in case it appeared again and then decided to head into bed. It was not until the next day that we all got to look at the photos on the computer where they were much larger and we were able zoom in more to see what she had captured and none of us could explain what it is. We are hoping you may have an explanation or have seen this before. KENS NOTE: The witness submitted 6 photos and this one was the best. Its apparent there is structure to this unknown object in the sky.
At 8:45 pm I decided to go for a walk around the block for half our to an hour, I left my place and enjoyed a peaceful evening stroll. I was walking through a dark alley that cut through two apt building ending up at a old school that is across the road from the high school which has several large football fields. While in the alley heading home I talked briefly too a group of guys who claimed to have seen a UFO in the sky and if I hurried over to the field I could still catch them. He pointed me in the direction that they seen the UFO and said they have to leave. I hurried over too the field and did not notice anything and thought for sure I had missed them, shortly after about a minute of observing the sky I observed some lights that seemed to come from nowhere, I saw five bright circular lights in the sky that were in a boomerang like V formation, the UFO was in the very bottom part of the cloud layer and the clouds around the UFO’s lights vanished all around for hundreds of feet. I felt a feeling of fear and astonishment when I first seen the craft, the lights were in the east direction moving south climbing in altitude, I observed the lights as they began to get smaller, the light started to pulsate and grow brighter when the UFO disappeared in a streak of light much like what a shooting star looked like only the streak of light traveled into space instead of the ground. I was still watching the sky and observed a light travel back from the direction in which it had shot away, the light was moving at super speeds because it traveled towards myself growing a bit brighter, the lights then slowed down and stayed stationary. The sighting lasted for about ten minutes and occured just after 9 pm. I could still make out the UFO when I left the school field. I walked home very excited about what I had just observed and the first thing I was going to say to my room mate was if he wanted too come and take a look at a UFO in the sky near the high school, so I came upstairs gave his door a quick knock and entered his room. I was instantly hit by a big gust of wind that made the curtains hit the roof and I almost blacked out, it felt like I had been drugged or was overcome by a deamonic dark presence, I remember seeing a dark shadow creature come over me freezing me with fear.
I thought to myself oh my god I just had my room mate abducted and I went to the living room where I noticed that 20 seconds had elapsed in 40 minutes, I looked around the house for my room mate and finally found him outside when I told him the things that had just happened, he didn’t think it was crazy at all. I was overcome by an energy and dreading feeling that I had too get out of the house, I thought for sure I was going to be abducted and I did not want to put anyone’s life in danger. I left the house and walked for about an hour too a picnic table at a small creek that was still in the city but it was late and I barely observed a vehicle. At this time I was starting to calm down and was beginning to accept what had recently happened to me, I was a little bit on edge because I jumped when something came out of the bushes, it turned out to be a dog that stopped to take a drink out of the creek and continued on his way. It was starting to get late, approximately 1 am, I grabbed my backpack and was about to head to the road when I heard something in the bushes again and thought it was the dog having another drink at the creek so I walked down to the waters edge to see if I could pet him and make a friend, I was mistaken because I observed two short human like creatures, around 4′ tall and a slender build, they had dark eyes that were larger then our own and no visible hair clothes to speak off. The creatures were dark In colour but not black, possibly a dark grey.
I watched the ET’s run away from me running towards a carwash looking back at me for a glance, the one jumped on top of a car with ease and ran over the top of it jumping down and continuing to follow the other as they ran into the dark where I could not make them out. I instantly thought” if they are running that way I am going this way” and I made my way to the brightly light highway that was nearby. I was honestly scared of these things and all I wanted to do at this time was too feel safe. I honestly don’t know what they were going to do to me or why they ran away. It has even crossed my mind that perhaps they were either coming to drink water from the creek or were stalking the stray dog that recently came from the path that the et’s were. I accept now that we are not alone and am amazed at the fact that we have so many documented account of the same lights in the sky and the same creatures known as the Grey Aliens.
