Back in September 1976 when I lived on the Isle of Wight. I and my wife, at the time were walking our dogs in the local park at Bembridge at around 11pm when one of the dogs stopped and started looking up at the sky. We looked up at the night sky and right above our heads some 1000/1500 feet was a UFO. It was disc shaped with a raised section with cabin windows that were lit up on the side that we could observe. It stayed in that position for about 20 seconds and then moved off at an incredible speed. There was no sound whatsoever.
Neither of us drink alcohol, so we were perfectly sober. My wife was traumatised by the experience. I found the sighting fascinating and re-inforced my belief that UFO s did exist. I can remember the incident so clearly. I just wish that I had a camera with me at the time.
There is no question in my mind that this was not an aircraft from the planet that we inhabit. -Richard
