UFO Sightings on Rise in England

It looks like either more people are seeing UFOs or there are more UFOs popping in jolly old England.

According to the Independent, the Ministry of Defense released a report that shows UFO sightings are on the increase.

The numbers rose from 97 in 2006 to 135 in 2007 including three pilots who claim to have seen a flying saucer and a triangular shaped object in the skies.

    I like to think that, we ask our self “is there life out there”. Well we build technology to explore the universe and if there is life out there, they think the same.

    THE UFOS ARE REAL! the thing is though, its not aliens flying them.

    i dont know if UFO’s are even real….some people may just want a thrill. I dont think they are actually real, i think that aliens arnt real, until they get proof. UFO’s and things such, are jsut a bunch of crap.

    so real. i just dont think that every ufo sighting is real. every time a person sees an air plane flying around they think its a ufo. but there has to be life out there and its kinda stupid to think that human kind is the only living life form in the galexy.

    there is no real evidence that they are real. some twats on the internet do stories for a laugh. sure there was roswell and that mexican cop but there is no real HARD evidence that its real. but i think it is. for thousands of years people have been saying it. maybe some are true but why would they have brought it up. it must be real. GO UK!!

    there is too much evidence and cover-ups by the usa to not believe in aliens and you have to have a real big ego to think that we are the only ones in the whole universe when they don’t even know how big the universe is yet, I believe it

  12. June 9th, 2008 | 6:59 pm

    Well, I really don’t believe in aliens all that much, but I do think sometimes that there are 8 other planets out there. I think that God would probably put life on them too, not just Earth. But I really don’t know. But I mean, I really don’t know.

    i dont know if there have ever been any real sightings of ufos or aliens. i do know that there are billions of other planets that have yet to be explored. to think that we are the only life forms in the entire universe is a bit arrogant!!!

    My take on this is most of this reported is fake or untrue but there are a small percentage i think are true. There are place out in space where alien races are not just thousands of years ahead of us but i suspect millions. Proof the faintest points of light we can see with hubble are galaxies millions of years older than ours intelligent life wil have flourished! to the point of becoming god like with their technology. That being said there must be others races out their that want to dominate space who have the same tech why have they not enslaved us as we are unfit to be let lose outside this crappy solar system. I would embrace peaceful enslavement as we cant run this ball of rock for shit!

    E.T. Invade the crap out of this planet maybe then we can have some bloody peace

    I Believe the ufo’s are real as i saw a simular sight above ipswich in dec, it was a big orange ball of light in the sky, it hovered around for a few mins then moved across the sky before shooting off and dissapearing into the distance. these are simular to the sightings over ipswich in the last few days.

    I do believe in Aliens,Know they have visited Earth, and America’s top secret officials know about them. I think a lot of people dont want to believe because they are scared, even if the aliens are harmless. It would be a hard thing to accept for everybody. Imagine if somehow everyone on planet was outside at same time and u.f.o.’s were slowly Descending down to earth.

    I’d like to think there is something else out there. I mean, in the vast, unknown of our universe, it can’t just be gas and rock.
    And is ours the ONLY universe?
    As far as UFO sightings go, I don’t believe most of what I read. It seems there are a lot of geeks trying to to get attention by making up stories.
    Some, however, I do have to think twice about.

    From a different point, if they have the power to reach us, why do most cases say they just hovver over, not land or make any contact, then fly away again.

    Doesn’t make sense.
    And I’ve been watching too many Sci-fi shows.

    Everyone that thinks U.F.O’s And ALIENS aint real must be stupid because when you look at the skys at night an you see all those planets we only know a FEW from why would we be the only life in space, most people that go to church and dont beleive are just scared to know the truth. and why would god be true and aliens not? so now you know

    Hi! I have been reading the above comments and believed what Carly said about UFO’s not exisiting.
    But in Aug 2008, we were taking my daughter and baby home when we saw a massive red ball in the sky stationery over her village. At first we thought it was a planet, but as we got nearer we could see it was not, it then moved over her house and the after a few seconds shot into the sky. I was very worried about leaving my daughter and grandson, but we had to.After five minutes when we were on our way mydaughter phoned to say she could see 3 more of the balls and they started to go off in a straight line then made a v shape.
    The next day loads of people phoned a local radio station to say they had also seen the balls, most people seeing 8 of them. None of our family are into Sc FI or UFO’s,.so I have been trying to find a logical explantion for what we saw.
    My hubby thinks it may be military! But who knows.
    If I do find any answers I will come back to this site and let you know.

    Best Wishes to all

    To all of the people that say that there are no other life in space are idiots. How can you possibly believe that in a space that no human could ever comprehend there is no life. Are we expected to believe that we are the only life forms anywhere at all.

    I’ve always been sceptical about UFO’s but after seeing the following for myself I’m now a little closer to believing.

    Walking my dogs late at night in York, I saw 3 lights in the sky in a small triangular formation eading east, a fourth light followed quite a distance away, it accelerated and caught up to the back pair of lights, then circled them in figure of 8 motion as they all continued out of sight. I heard no sound from them even after they passed overhead.

    I would be interested to find out if anyone else saw what I saw last night over York. Again, walking my dogs off Hull Road in York. (Because of the broken cloud cover I can’t be too precise about exactly where I first saw it), I first noticed it, I would estimate, somewhere to the east of Betelgeuse, possibly more toward what I think is 13-Monocerotis. It continued in a straight line north over the sky toward the direction of Cassiopeia. Slowly fading, similar to the way satellite reflections do

    It moved through the sky faster than satellites move but much slower than most meteorites I’ve seen. It was a very bright and a very orange/red colour.

    Initially I thought it may be the light of an aircraft but it made no sound, even after it faded. I seem to recall too that it flickered rather that flashed.

    Aliens are in fact, real. Why would God have made such an expansive universe, and only populate one planet?
    The reason Aliens don’t contact us and just hover, is the same reason you don’t pet a strange animal. You’re not sure how it might act towards you.
    Most people I know would be openly hostile to the visitors. Might even decide to kill some. The Visitors wouldn’t like that.

    we are missing the details, why in england a ufo is spotted and the investigation into it seems to disappear, dont you think thats a bit dodgy? and if you ask the police for info on previous sightings they wont allow you to view them, does this not infringe our freedom of information act

    and those socialists are just bigots they down everyone else but tell no one what they do? too any socialists out there- YOU SUCK!

    aliens exist and there’s a proof:in 2007 they found some ice in mars.
    so if theres water in that planet that means there are living beings there.

    there must be something up there, because we are on this planet so why cant their be another one out there. it will be soon before we notice life out there and i hope that they come for peace not war cause we dont stand a chance.

    August 21st, 2009 | 9:31 pm

    of course they exist, its ignorant to think that out of the whole scale of the universe our planet to be the only life goin down, i have seen for myselfin the nights sky in milton keynes england…..a flying ball of light dint no what that woz i hav also seen a green streak inthe sky which i couldn’t explain either?

  40. October 5th, 2009 | 5:06 am

    Totally agree with the point in a huge universe there must life on other planets . cant sure sighting is true or not. tc

  41. October 7th, 2009 | 5:41 am

    Is there any specification or news about this object? The thing is that we continue hearing about UFOs and what I think that if they are really exist and belongs out of our planet then they were obviously more technologies than us, letting all this in mind I thought why they are not contacting us? Any comments?

    Steve, I live in Romford in Essex. I picked up my sister from her work and was driving home when three globes started hovering above a school.I was on a main road and suddenly my car stopped. I looked around and the traffic wasn’t moving either. I was so scared even though I am 45 and 6ft ‘7 and I was fucking sitting there shaking. It scared the freaking life out of me and I will never be the same.
