Further Comments: A rumour floating around on the internet said that a cigar-shaped ufo, around six metres in length, was forced down by two RAF fighters.

Location: Clonmacnoise (County Offaly) - Unknown church
Type: UFO
Date / Time: Unknown
Further Comments: During Mass, the congregation at this church were interrupted as an anchor dropped from the sky and caught on the church door. The people investigated and spotted a ship floating above them; one of the crew diving overboard and swimming towards them through the air towards the anchor. The congregation grabbed the sailor, but the bishop demanded that they let him go. As the group released the man, he floated upwards and once on board the ship, the rope attached to the anchor was cut - the ship sailed off into the sky. The anchor was said to have been on display at the church.

White Light

Location: Conisholme (Lincolnshire) - Area around wind farm
Type: UFO
Date / Time: January 2009
Further Comments: After a wind turbine was found damaged (one blade bent, another laying on the ground), a number of theories emerged to explain why the incident had happened. County councillor Robert Palmer reported seeing a round white light which hovered near the area, while the media reported that John Harrison had seen a massive ball of light with something akin to tentacles reaching for the ground. While the 'ufo hit our turbine' stories were popular with the media, there is a high chance that the blade just fell off, hitting the second blade as it fell...

Fog Bank with Flag

Type: UFO
Date / Time: 29 March, 1890
Further Comments: What could be seen as an early UFO sighting, a man walking along the beach watched a localised 'fog bank' sitting on the sand, with a huge flagpole sticking out. After ten minutes, the object rose and faded from view.
