Sixty Red Lights

Location: Uckfield (Sussex) - London Road, skies above
Type: UFO

Brighter than Daylight

Location: Uppertown (Derbyshire) - Cullumbell Lane
Type: UFO
Date / Time: 07 May 1978, approximately 02:00h
Further Comments: Driving through the area, two people suddenly became aware of an unusual light coming from within a nearby barn. The people initially thought the light belonged to a man who would collect milk from farms in the area. As the people drove closer, three beams of brilliant light shone down from a disc shaped craft hovering above the field to the right of the car. As they passed the lane, the lights shut off and the craft flew northwest, leaving the area in complete darkness. The following day, the people returned to Uppertown and visited a farm. They noticed that all the produce had been dumped in the yard, as though the milk collector had quickly fled from something.

Date / Time: 09 October 1976
Further Comments: On a dense, foggy night, author Andrew Collins (pictured) and a team of four other paranormal researchers encountered a small light that moved a few feet off the ground, rather like the headlamp of a moped.
