The following story you are about to read is true as much as we have found no evidence to suppose it is not true all the available evidence points to a event that the man in this case did not make up any of the story all evidence can be and was backed up by scientific study.
The case started in early january 1987 when a friend of mine a mr arthur Tom Linson BSc. got a phone call from a man claiming he was out walking on ilkley moor west yorkshire he was going to his father/in law who lived in east morton a small town.He carried with him a compass,although he knew the moors well the weather can suddenly change and mist can come down and you can get lost very quickly.also he had a camera the plan was to take some shots o the town of ilkley from up on the moors there were only 5 exposures left on th roll of film.
As he climbed up the steep slopes of the moor he decided to not take his norma route he took a shorter route though much arduous.he was vaguely aware of a humming sound which he put down to a plane though he could not see it due to cloud.as he reached the peak of the top a path that runs along a line of trees something caught his eye he stopped and turned looking into a huge hollow that had been scooped out of the top of the hill,there about 30 feet or more he saw what he can only describe as a small green creature moving quickly away from him.he thought "whats that?"so he shouted HEY! when it was about 40/50 feet away the creature turned and seemed to be waving him away?He quickly remembered his camera and took one exposure of the strange green creature. then he can"t remember why but he jumped down the embankment and ran after th creature said the creature didn"t walk as much as shambled but nevertheless it moved very fast faster than a human.he followed the creature around a outcropping where it was seen to run.there was a deeper hollow around this corner but what he saw was a even bigger surprise!
He saw what he described as a large object like two silver saucers stuck edge to edge saw a box like apparatus on top of the disc it was desending into the object the humming sound that he had heard previously was quite loud now and as the saucer shot straight up into the clouds!
As you could imagine after an encounter like this it sort of shook him up but he decided to come back down the moors and cancel his visit to his father in laws the time that this incident had occurred was 7:15 a.m.the weather was not very nice it had been raining but had stopped it was dull a windy.please take note of the time this encounter happened it took the man who i will call JON from now on this is not his real name for obvious reasons jon had been in the metropolitan police in london for 4 years before moving to ilkley with his wife and baby this was so his wife could be closer to her relations.
Jon stuck us right away how matter of fact his attitude towards what had happened ed to him we were impressed by his openness and integrity.and honesty.as he got into the center of the town he looked at the townhall clock he could not believe his eyes? the clock read 10:00a.m.? how could this be? it was only 7:15 only half an hour that it took him to walk down the moor we know we walked it ourselves.Was jon going mad?it should only have been 8:15 instead it was 10:00? then jon remembered the photograph.there was a developing and printing store i the town of keighley so he got on a bus walked the rest of the way to the store he handed the film over and one hour later he returned to pick up the prints no knowing if the green creature would be on the film.to jon"s joy there on the print was the creature so he wasn"t going mad!but what about the time loss? we went down to see jon who took us up to the place he saw the creature it was at night so we went down and asked jon if we could borrow the prints and negatives as well he gave them to us and we said goodnight,it was a week later that jon rang mr tomlinson he was very upset he said that he had been visited by two smartly dressed men who produced MINISTRY OF DEFENCE ID CARDS?
One of the names of the men was called david jefferson jon remembers seeing this at the bottom of the id card. the other chap jon only remembers as davies they told jon they wanted to talk about his ufo encounter jon was stunned as to how they knew about him his address and all the details of the incident? jon did not mention about the photo it was the man known as jefferson who asked if he had taken a photo of the creature jon told them yes he had but he had but when the men asked to see the photo jon told the he had given it to a friend not telling them he had given it to us.With that the two men left. jon was puzzled as to how they had found out about the case also how had they located his address we had not been in contact with the M.O.D. so how could this happen? we can only assume that a "tap" had been put on jons phone it is the only explanation for the two mens visit.
It was february 10th when jon contacted us to tell us about his compass it was not working correctly it was pointing south not north its polarity had somehow been reversed? we took the compass the UMIST (UNIVERSITY OF MANCHESTER INSTITUTE OF SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY) we spoke to a DR.Spooner who is head of the department of electrical engineering at umist.
In the next part 2 of this story I will tell you the results of the test on th compass also we find out why jon lost the 2 hours of time in which he wa taken onto the silver saucer bye several of these green creatures and was give a medical examination and also shown around the craft and shown three films
more in part two.
