UK UFO Report South Shields – Halloween ‘09

To be honest the following report sounds remarkably like yet another Chinese lantern but I always try and Blog about sightings in and around the North East of England regardless of what I personally believe they are, mainly as it's my local area and as such I try to keep an informal record of sorts…..

Anyway the following was originally posted in the Jarrow & Hebburn Gazette who -by the sounds of it- scavenged the report up from an undisclosed website where the UFO sighting was originally reported.

Did you see a UFO over Shields?

Published Date : Wednesday, 11th November 2009
Location: South Shields

SOMETHING strange was flying about on Halloween according to a South Tyneside man – and it wasn't a witch. Gary Sinclair said he saw a bright orange light hovering in the sky as he peered out of his sitting room window in Bluebell Way, South Shields, at 5.30pm. The 34–year–old said:

"It was very strange, it was almost slow at approaching and then it just vanished. I thought it was a plane on fire. It just seem [sic] to shoot off in a northern direction. It's something I'm certainly not going to forget in a hurry."

Mr Sinclair reported his sighting online where other people – as far away as Merseyside and Northampton – claim they had a similar experience. There was speculation the light could have been a Chinese lantern - often mistaken as UFOs – but Mr Sinclair is adamant this was not the case.

8th November 2009 - Remembrance Sunday - Lest We Forget

In Flanders Fields
John McCrae, May 1915

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep,
though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
