Witness & Videographer:
At full zoom from behind Gopher Wood the illuminated communications mast
at White Field Hill, near the village
of Ogbourne St George, is clearly visible by late dusk onwards
by four bright red mast lights (2a).
At approximately 10:15pm, for nine minutes, a luminous unidentified aerial
object maneuvered around
the communication mast
descending to tree top level and suddenly disappearing (2b).
AN UNIDENTIFIED AERIAL CRAFT SIGHTING
FIELD HILL COMMUNICATIONS MAST:
A BRIEF REPORT
Early afternoon on July 23rd I (Ed Sherwood) set up camp behind Gopher
near the village of Huish in Wiltshire, and began to slowly prepare
myself for a solo night watch.
One of the first things
I did was to decide exactly where I should sit and what view I should
my attention on during the watch.
both sides of Gopher Wood, I continuously felt a very strong urge to watch
from behind the wood, rather than in front of it. The latter would have
given me a great view
of the Vale of Pewsey, and some well known UFO/Crop
Circle hotspots, but denied me the view
where I was increasingly beginning
to sense ‘UFO’ events would take place that evening.
I therefore decided
to face what was for me a completely new night watching view behind the
and to trust the guidance of intuition.
8.30pm, after walking a few hundred feet from my tent, I selected a spot
on a steep hillside embankment that allowed me to view a wide area,
including the illuminated
communications mast about 8 1/2 miles away (as
the crow flies) at White Field Hill.
approached the weather conditions were characterized by good weather: high
calm stable air, and little to no wind. The sky was mostly
the night watch I asked the ‘Infinite Mind and Intelligence’ of all
and any benevolent extraterrestrial civilization able to appear
within the viewing area,
permission to film anything that might occur.
Then at about 9pm, after final preparations,
including requesting the
appearance of plasmas
I began the night
At about 9:40pm an amber-orange coloured luminosity appeared
in front of me above the crest of
10:15pm a different luminous unidentified aerial object suddenly appeared
near the communication mast. With the video-cam set on ‘Night Vision’ I
began filming immediately,
observing the object mostly via the LCD screen
on the camera,
but also periodically with the naked eye.
Sequence of Events
1) My attention
was suddenly drawn to a steady bright reddish coloured light (to the naked
that appeared low above the distant horizon, above and perhaps a mile
or two to the right
(from my view) of the illuminated communication mast. I began to film
2) After a few
seconds it suddenly changed from a ‘stationary’ steady bright red light to
rising irregular flashing bright white light that began to move
slowly from right to left,
as if to approach the mast.
3) I Zoomed in on the object. Almost reaching the communications mast the
then appeared to stop and slowly began to reverse course.
As it approached its original position
the flashing white light (to the
naked eye) became a steady bright red light again. Examining the footage
later it was possible to see that the unknown object also continued to
flash during this phase,
giving the appearance of a twinkling light to the
4) After a few
seconds the stationary steady reddish light changed back to a bright white
flashing light, as it gained altitude slightly and once again
approached the mast from right to left.
This time the flashing object
appeared to fly over and past the mast, stopping some distance beyond it.
Exact distances I could not be sure of after dark, but observing and
filming the object relative
to the communications mast through the
video-cam, it appeared to be as far as the mast at all times,
for most of the sighting
within a mile of it.
5) Appearing to move to the left of the mast the flashing object now
became a steady light again
for several seconds. It flew some distance
beyond the mast then paused, ‘hovering’ for about 30 seconds,
point I verbally requested that it suddenly position itself over the mast
“as if you’re one
of the radio mast
lights”. Moments later, it
resumed its irregular flashing (only) sequence,
as it slowly approached the mast again.
6) Moving from left to right the flashing white light seemed to just pass
over the mast.
As it did it suddenly changed to a very bright steady red
light (brighter than any previous steady
light phase, apart from its
initial appearance). It now looked like one of the mast lights!
As it passed
the mast, I suspended my request, and thanked it.
It remained in a steady light phase
for about 13 seconds while also
continuing to flash, returning to its original position,
perhaps 1/2 a mile to a 1 mile to the right of the mast.
7) Pausing for
only a moment the ‘unknown’ began to approach
the communications mast once again, from right to left, flashing
continuously. Passing above
the mast it then returned to its previous
position, to the left of the mast, where I had made the request (2c).

2n showing the unidentified
aerial object passing the illuminated communication
mast for the last time
prior to ‘blinking out’ and disappearing.
8) Stopping only
for a moment, the object then seemed to ‘triple’ in size, looking much
than any previous time, as it changed for the last time from a
bright flashing white light to a brilliant
steady red light (2d). Moving
from left to right it once again approached the mast, slowly descending
(2e – 2g). Passing just above the mast lights the object continued to
slowly lose altitude until it reached about tree
top (horizon) level.
Then, perhaps 1/2 a mile from the mast, the unidentified aerial object
seemed to implode or ‘blink out’, like a light bulb being turned
off (2h – 2n).
The duration of
the filmed sighting was approximately nine minutes long, after which no
aerial objects were observed. I ended the night watch
behind Gopher Wood
at around 11:15pm.
characteristics of the object and sighting:
appearance of the object alternated several times from being a large
steady bright reddish
coloured light to a bright irregular flashing white
light. At times it also appeared to have both a large
reddish light, and a bright irregular flashing white light. The large
reddish light in size
was unlike any conventional navigation light that I
have seen before. The unidentified object appeared suddenly.
passed the communications mast four times, clearly focussing on it. It
also seemed to be
at most perhaps only a few hundred feet off the ground
(if that?) throughout the sighting.
At no time did I hear any sound from
observations that appeared to separate this object from civilian or
military aircraft and helicopters:
While living in
the Vale of Pewsey, and visiting this area for many years, I have not seen
a large steady
coloured light as large as this one was, on any conventional aircraft or
civilian or military before. I have observed hundreds of
commercial and military aircraft
in and around this valley since 1992,
under very similar conditions, and none appeared exactly
like the July 23rd
unidentified aerial craft sighting at the White Field Hill communication
Another detail that seemed very unusual and made the object
‘unidentified’ was its very irregular flashing
white light sequences,
as well as its sudden blinking out.
However, what made
the communication mast sighting particularly interesting to me
was that it
appeared to be an ‘interactive
After I observed
the object for approximately seven minutes, it seemed to ‘interact’ with
by ‘responding’ to my spoken request. About 35 seconds after I asked
the unidentified craft to position
itself just above the communications
mast, “as if you’re one of the radio mast lights”, it moved towards
mast, then passed over it and suddenly increased in brightness
considerably, looking very much
like one of the mast lights. Two and a
half minutes later, after returning to the same position that I made
request, it did it again even more dramatically, almost tripling in size!
