Awesome! Thanks for sharing. It seems the UK gets a lot of UFO sightings.
The sighting you describe sounds like the Piney Woods incident, which involved a diamond-shaped UFO: https://www.ufocasebook.com/Pineywoods.html
Any chance you still got those 35mm pics?
Thank you LogicalChaos,
My frustration only lies into convincing others that:-
1) I am telling the truth
2) That I had not imagined this, and that it was real
3) I am sane 100% (colleagues say...a bit weird..lol
4) Normal intelligence.
Piny woods was exactly how it was. Back in 1965 this was unheard off. I cannot remember looking up as I was frightened.
The biggest impact is that it changes your life. You question your world as why these things were not made public. Now I know.
Religion is questioned as to where Jesus fits into it all?
Piny Wood if I recollect (not checked your site yet) was based on my very first impact phenomenon when our garden flickered with this floodlight from the sky. I assumed it was above my head as I dared not look up.
They never touched a hair on my head! I recollect at school that I was teased for falling asleep in the sun. This may or may not have been the case.
This was the start of my UFO encounters as I became friends with the occupants.
It was way back this time when 8mm movie cameras were rife. I recollect taht I had a 8mm Cine Man from Boots the Chemist and would shoot scenes in our garden. Film lasted for about 15 minutes and was very expensive to buy. Recollecting that my film was a Kodachrome 25 ASA. I used to film snippets lasting for no more than a minute or two, so it was a bit like Mad Movies playing it back. Consisting of my friends which were many.
I was a video enthusiast as I am now, and would play my film to my friends when they came round to see me, They now tell me, that they were so sick and tired watching it/them...lol
My camera did not have an automatic exposure control and some of the scenes were very dark. As film was so expensive, I wanted to know what was on every snippet of film?
We must have watched taht film about 100 times and I recollect saying to Frank, that I was curious what was on a snippet 6 frames long which was too dark and fast to watch? Normal film speed was I think 8-12 frames a second, so this was under one second.
I took the film into my mother;s bedroom and held it her strong bedside lamp. Using a magnifying glass I could not believe my eyes. I was shocked! So shocked that I could not speak for a few minutes and kept looking at the frames in case I imagined things???
I called Frank and without saying anything, gave him the magnifying glass to ask what he could see??
We stood there shocked...I mean really shocked with mouths open.
Both agreeing a[art from the slight difference in colour....
Frames 1&2 consisted of a robed man with longosh hair (this was 3 years before the long hair hippy era) with a head band wearing a large medallion and a purple robe. Smiling into the camera
Frames 2&3 were of a large saucer shaped craft on the ground with crew walking around it . Midst of trees and on a kind of tripod legs. The windows were like that of an airliner cockpit.
Frames 4&6 consisted of a workshop with a bench. Long gown (black) figures with high Elizabethan collars were looking at a robot with it's head hinged on it's shoulders with hands like pincers. The body looked like a flowerpot man!
The strange thing about these frames is that the preceding frames consisted with me taking film clips above our roof, on the off chance of capturing a UFO? Follwed by these 6 frames. The latter frames were our garden in the morning, as Kodachrome is pretty good at picking up morning light temperature.
Somehow these 6 frames appeared whilst my camera was in my bedroom.
I put the 6 frames in a slide casing and gave it to Frank as to show others. It got lost or damaged.
Before this happened, I was able to make some very poor b/w prints by projecting the image onto Bromide paper by use of my slide projector. Pinning the photographic paper onto our door with drawing pins.
Being very armature, the prints became developer damaged and stained. Even though, it was still possible to make out what was on them. I still have the prints.
This was the start of being provided with pictures by ET. Many more would appear on my 35mm camera. One of which I posted on this forum.
