Location of Sighting: Launceston Cornwall
Date of Sighting: November 2014
Time: around 21:30
Witness Name: Billy Dawson
Witness Statement: This was a while ago but intrigue is still strong.
I was standing at the rear of the house I was living in outside the french doors. the light was on in the room behind me. facing me was large open fields surrounded by trees with no artificial light. it was a very clear and dark night….I was smoking a cigarette and was just enjoying the peace and quiet. I noticed a black object and as in black this was the blackest thing I have ever seen, it stood out in the dark sky very visible to the naked eye. it was coming towards me in a slow manner. there was no lights to it just vivid black. must admit I did panic at first and got goose bumps. I started shouting frantically to raise alert with others in the house. My wife shouted at me to keep the noise down.
I did manage to get a witness my 15 year old niece who saw the object straight away. We watched as this drew closer and closer. It was huge nothing man made so black and moving so slow. It came closer and closer and then just gently drifted from right to left slowly passing and disappearing from view.
I have tried to find information on this but have not seen any passings closer than 300 000 feet listed as described items with a black surface. this was so much closer than that figure I actually thought it may continue on the heading and make contact somewhere before it changed direction.
I know this is a while ago but its been bugging from time to time so thought I would share….only wished I had a decent camera to try and capture images.
