UFO mystery

Published in News

IT LOOKS like a case for X-Files duo Scully and Mulder.

These mysterious lights were spotted hovering over Norton, near Malton, by Gail and Richard Denney.

Gail, of Springfield Close, said: “We saw the first one at about 7.15pm which appeared for about five minutes and then disappeared. We then spotted the three lights which are on the photo at 9.40pm. They came from the same direction as the first one (Langton Road area) and again disappeared. Then at 10.17pm I saw another two lights.

“They went up slowly, so they weren’t fireworks, and they were very bright. They flickered like little street lights in the sky then just fizzled out.

“They did not make a sound, so they definitely weren’t a plane. We thought at first they could have been weather balloons, but they didn’t move. I’m not saying they were UFOs, I just don’t know what they were.” Mr and Mrs Denney saw the lights last Saturday. “We were just hoping someone else may have seen the lights and knew what they were,” said Gail.

Ooohh Weird!

I think it's the starship enterprise doing a detour round by malton bacon factory on its way to Galactica at warp factor zero. Cant be exactly sure though.

Last Saturday we saw 20 plus lights in the York sky. Firstly thought they were balloons of some description, but then eventually 'popped' one by one and disappeared.

14 years ago I saw 3 circles in the night sky just ouside Leeds(almost like smoke rings)that were moving very very quickly in some sort of dance. I rang the police (local number)to ask if there was an exhibition in the area which would cause such a display - they said 'no'. I saw the 'same' rings about 10 years later near South Elmsall but during the day time. Again doing some sort of 'dance' in the sky.

I do not think that these lights in York are anything to do with these rings but I thought I would tell you anyway.

Bug-eyed slimy aliens have been amongst us for a while now, taking over. If you want proof, just look in the council chambers - Galloway, Reid, Waller....

YOUR READERS SHOULD ENTER ILF UFO
INTO GOOGLE BROWSER-You will see the extent of Orange/Red Spheres being filmed & witnessed very close
to Norton on the Yorkshire Wolds.
These are not sky lanterns.They move without sound,no vapour trails,
do not move like conventional aircraft.
This is happening nationwide-again google on UFo in Google news.you will see the reports in different regional newspapers & on you Tube.
Google and put in 'The Disclosure Project Ufo's' and watch the videos of senior military officers saying exactly what they have seen & know.
There needs to be full disclosure of what is invading our skies.
In my firm opinion it is extra terrestial and many people believe
these spheres are becoming more common because they wish to be seen by us.
Ed Mitchell Senior NASA Astronaut
has said that he knows that ET's have been visiting Earth for over 60 years and that he has been briefed on this and been part of the cover up.

Considering it is left to the government to get us out of an economic crisis, it might be a squadron of pigs flying past the window.
