I live in the middle of nowhere in a row of six houses and one night, about 20.00, was called to see a glow in the sky which was floating from East to West. The 'glow' was a large ball of very intense red which got bigger and bigger. Judging its size was extremely difficult (as would be any object in the sky at this time of night) but a figure of 200 feet seems appropriate. It made not a sound as it gently floated along! After what seemed like ages, the glow went very low over the house and then vanished.
Now away with the fairies I may be, but the whole incident was viewed by several people and a similar incident about the same date occurred in Taunton. Many similar minor incidents take place and, yes, I DO know Venus, Mars and what a weather balloon looks like etc.
About two years ago, I was awakened by the whole house shaking. There was a very loud humming sound. I SHIT MYSELF! A repeat incident occurred later the same night. This time, whatever it was had affected a very large area and there were many people affected that night.
Have you ever tried to get any meaningful words out of the Ministry? They emphatically deny that either event was their work but say that they wouldn't admit to it if it was. The funny thing is that when I lived in London, I always wanted to see a U.F.O. Now that I live in the sticks, I can't get rid of the damn things!
As a point of interest, I deny drinking the local scrumpy and would advise others to avoid it too. It relies on wild yeast to ferment and can cause brain damage. This is why the locals don't drink it.. They've got more sense. They spend the money which they make from flogging said deadly mixture to holiday visitors on bottles of scotch. This is also why they're always grinning....
