Black Triangle UFO, Halesowen, UK (Nov 28th, 2007)
Dorito Shaped UFO seen in skies.
A UFO, described by witnesses as looking like a huge “Dorito” crisp has been filmed over the skies of the Black Country, according to a paranormal group. A flurry of calls has been made to Stourbridge-based UFO Research Midlands (UFORM) from those claiming to have witnessed the flying object in the sky. Witnesses say they spotted it in Halesowen heading towards Stourbridge on Wednesday at around 7pm.
UFORM is now appealing for anyone else who saw it to get in touch to help it compile its X-files. Steve Poole, UFORM chairman, said one man filmed more than 30 seconds of footage of the craft travelling in a westerly direction from Halesowen to Stourbridge, saying:
“The object has been described as looking like a huge Dorito and had distinctive red lights on its underside, which moved position while the craft was flying.”
Another witness reported seeing it while looking out from the Lickey Hills towards the Sutton area of Birmingham . The witness says he watched the UFO through binoculars as it moved “very quickly” across the skyline. Two other independent collaborators came forward within hours of the sighting, according to UFORM.
UFORM operates a 24-hour hotline for the public to report UFO incidents. Steve Poole said:
“This could turn out to be a pretty substantial sighting, especially given that one of the witnesses has filmed the event. We would like to hear from anyone else who may have seen this object. They can remain anonymous if they like.”
UFORM was set up in 1995 by Steve Poole to coincide with the massive increase in UFO sightings in the West Midlands . Now with dozens of members, the group holds monthly meetings in Stourbridge with internationally renowned guest speakers, hosts sky-watches and acts as the leading research organisation in the area for anyone interested in the UFO phenomenon.
Readers have been calling in their droves to tell us they saw the huge “Dorito” UFO in the skies over the Black Country . The orange triangle with its three lights was seen over Wednesfield and Dudley by scores of people who phoned the newspaper after an appeal for information. A flurry of calls was made to Stourbridge based UFO Research Midlands, UFORM, from those claiming to have witnessed an unexplained aircraft in the sky.
Here's why a Black Triangle UFO could be described as a Dorito!!
Using the Belgian, "Petit Rechain" Black Triangle image.
The flying object was spotted over Halesowen heading towards Stourbridge on Wednesday at around 7pm. Katherine Hemmings, aged 13, of Beechwood Avenue, saw it at 4pm over Wednesfield High School in Lichfield Road. She was walking home with friends Tasmin Jones and Chelsea Smith when the three felt compelled to turn around:
“It was weird because it wasn't making any noise but for some reason we turned around…….We all saw this big thing with lights in the sky.......We didn't tell anyone other than our families at first because we thought everyone would laugh at us. Our families didn't know what to think until they saw it in the paper. I have never really believed something like that would be real. I always just thought people who say they have seen a UFO are seeing aeroplanes or birds.”
Pat Scotford and her husband Mick saw the UFO when they were in their garden in Devon Road , Wollaston at around 7.30pm.
Mrs Scotford, aged 61, said she too saw three orange lights in the sky:
“It looked like it was heading towards Kinver…..At first I thought it was three planes flying in formation but the lights were far too close together. I'm sure we're not alone in the universe.”
Steve Poole, chairman of UFORM, said one man filmed over 30 seconds of footage of the craft and Lisa Timmins, aged 38, saw the object while at her boyfriend's house in Whitgreave Avenue, Bushbury, some time between 6.15pm and 6.40pm. She said:
“I haven't got a clue what it was, but it was quite big.”
