A 1987 Historic Orb U.I.P Sighting Report – Cambridgeshire/Brinkley, UK
There are so many Orb like sightings seen around the world these day that you can quite easily forget that these unusual objects in the sky have been seen by many people for a very long time!
We recently had this intriguing sighting report sent to us, however this was no recent sighting, this particular ‘Ball of Light’ was witnessed back in 1987 in Cambridgeshire UK. Unlike many other Orb sightings which have been perhaps the size of a passenger plane (like the one that I saw back in 2013), this particular object was only about 2 foot….and apparently ‘followed’ its witnesses!
Please read below about this interesting sighting reported to us.
U.I.P Sighting Report
Date of Sighting: 1987
Location of Sighting: Cambridgeshire/Brinkley
Brief Description: One pulsating ball of light
Full Description: A September evening sighted from a stubble field where a friend and my self had just been riding motor cycles. Was getting too dark to ride guessing about 2100 we noticed a light as described rising from a small wood aprrox 1/2 a mile from us then shot a way from us at a rapid acceleration, then stopped dead then moved towards us fast as before stopped turned 90deg in an instant ,dropped down the below the a reasonably high hedge row on the field boundary, we could see it occasionally through gaps , it moved up the field edge closer to us we both walked towards it , it then stopped and rose above the hedge row just hovering no sound at all , I don’t mind saying so after all these years we both ran like the devil to the bikes and rode home.
We went back the same evening with or wives ,both sceptical of what we had seen,
I hope this is helpful to your research,or anybody else with the same experience.
