For many years now i have told my stories to poeple that raise the conversation about UFO sightings. I tell them of the time when i was about 8 yrs old around 1969 when i sighted a cigar shaped ship that had port holes where you could clearly see faces looking down at you, at a distance of about 500 mtrs away hovering over a corn field. I remember
waving to them, and they waved back before the ship tilted and vanished into the night of summer.
The second time i see a Mother ship, back around 1978, i was working late and finished around 7pm on a late August evening, the night was very misty, and i could hear a strange static electric humming coming from above. As i looked up into the misty sky, i noticed a massive dark shape moving right over top of me, a movement that lasted around 30-50 seconds. There were lights flashing beneath the craft, large square oblong shapes, with various colours. The ship had bright white lights at its front like very large halogen lamps, and the hair on my head i could feel was radiating upwards as it passed over. As it passed over the back of the ship narrowed into a point, this i could tell was a triangle with the base being the front.
The third time was about 1996 were i noticed a very bright light hovering over an old castle ruin, Castle Rising Kings Lynn, Norfolk. I pulled into a layby and got out of my car to witness the light suddenly move very slowly upwards and towards me in a southernly direction, as it passed over, the moon was full, the sky was clear, and i could actually see the shape was a small craft in the shape of a triangle, it never made any noise, only the
sound of the wind passing underneath it. In 1998, there was a power cut in Kings Lynn, and i went outside to witness the birds stop singing thier night songs, and a very eary feeling pass through me, again i looked up to witness this massive great mother ship pass over in the shap of a triangle.These sightings had been witnessed by others and the local newspapers had reported them.The RAF Marham had no records of this and nothing had been reported. In 2002 on the A17 from Kings Lynn in the day time around 1300hrs i noticed something catch my eye, it was a shiny object that vanished into a cloud, as i continued driving i noticed it reappear, this was a very silvery shiny craft that reminded me
of a tear drop, but the larger of the tear drop being the front of the craft. It moved rapidly in a circular motion and dissappeared into a cloud.  The cloud broke into nothing ,but the ship had vanished. The earlier sightings were around Tilney All Saints and Terrington st Clement Kings Lynn Norflk. I lived in the country side, where there have been many unexplained happenings. 'The Glowing Harvester'. I was about 10 yrs old looking at a combine harvester cutting the corn, it was a blue Massy Fergusson, As i watched it begin to turn for the next line of cut, i witnessed a very strange thing. The Harvester turnt moulten orange, and i truely believed it was going to melt or explode. There was a bright light
eminating from above it at this time. I knew the farmer, so i waited until he got close anough to ask him if he was alright, he never knew anything was wrong, and was shocked when i showed my concern. He believed me though.

Leaving everything else

Leaving everything else aside, the 1996 sighting is particulary significant since it happened at the height of the 1995-1997 "Flying Triangle flap" in Britain (according to datas gathered by Victor Kean). Flying Triangles are a particular kind of UFOs (given their seemingly solid nature I cannot use the term UAP) which hit the headlines around 1982 with the famous "Hudson Valley Boomerang" flap in the US and increase steadily in frequency reaching a peak in 2003 (according to NIDS data). The 1998 sighting is also consistent with this very particular type of UFO.
Sightings are invariably the same in nature: a triangular "craft" flying at very low speed with lights on the underside capable of phantastic feats of aerial acrobatics. At the height of famous "Belgian Wave" of 1989-1991 NATO ground radars and Belgian F16 fighter planes managed to get a number of radar locks on the objects, seemingly confirming their solid nature. The objects displayed awareness of being targeted by radars, performing jaw-dropping aerial maneuvers each time a lock was achieved: these included dropping from 10.000 to 500 ft in about 5 seconds. This is one of the best documented UFO cases of all times but, sadly, failed to impress the general public more than Whitley Streiber's livid book Communion and John Lear's wild claims.

 I recall reading a similar description to the first sighting somewhere, though typically I can't find where. I think there was a drawing of the cigar like object. 

I'm thinking perhaps it was in an Orbis book about UFOs or MIBs. I really need to get some books out of storage.

The

The "mothership" popularized by the infamous George Adamski was cigar-shaped.
The alien craft on which Betty and Barney Hill were allegedly taken by their captors was cigar-shaped.
So it's an all too common occurence in ufology.
