This site is for any one to share any stories or experiences they have. I made it private in case people worry they may be ridiculed.
I come from a scientific back ground and believe just because I have not seen something, I can’t prove it does not exist, so I am neutral and open minded.

The pilots of an Airbus A321 on 15 October reported seeing a “bright red object” passing along the left-hand side of the plane, not far from the left wing, after the aircraft had just passed 3,000ft in altitude.It came within 20 feet of them.
The speed they were travelling at made it impossible to say whether the object was a helium balloon or a drone – if the latter, it was flying at 7.5 times the legal limit in the UK (400ft).
Pilots had already been warned to watch out after a previous drone sighting to the east of the airfield.
They engaged the autopilot function after take-off in order to “maintain lookout”.
According to the UK Airprox Board, which investigates near misses between aircraft and objects, the incident was classed as category A: the highest risk level.

There have been hundreds of sightings of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) around the world.
Lincolnshire is certainly no different – there have been all sorts of strange sightings in the skies of our county over the years.
Last year, Boston was named as one of the top ten places in the UK to spot a UFO.
The most recent sighting – showed flickering lights the sky over the A151 near Bourne.
This sighting is just one of a number of other, more mysterious sightings,that still can’t be exp
The footage, which was filmed over the A151 by Alex Platts, shows flickering lights in the sky overhead on Monday, July 27 2020.
He posted online: “UFO I’ve just been watching over Bourne.
“Headed off North Easterly direction. Any ideas??”
The video caused a stir, with a lot of people commenting with ideas of what they thought it was.
One said: “Very odd. That’s not something easily explained.
“I do love a good UFO sighting.”
Another suggested: “The light flashing pattern makes me think it’s a helicopter.”
Alex, however, says he believes it’s not a helicopter – as there was no rotor noise and the way the lights “flowed from front to back” was not like that of a helicopter.
“It looks like several of whatever they are,” another person commented.
Mysterious object over the Lincolnshire coast – October 2019
A man in Ingoldmells spotted this very strange image in the sky in October last year.
The man who took the photo, Gary Couldwell, said: “It was so weird. At first I thought it was a lantern, but the way it moved in the sky I don’t think it could have been.
“It just stayed in that position for such a long time before shooting up so quickly.
“I don’t believe in any of that, really. I’m a doubter. But after this, seeing it with my own eyes – I’d say I’m inbetween.”

Have you seen a UFO?500+ VOTES SO FAR
A letter from an unidentified government official criticised the government’s defence secretary at the time, writing: “I am very concerned about an incident that occurred off the Anglian Coast recently, involving a visual unidentified flying craft sighting which was correlated by various different military radar systems.”
It added that it was “incredible” that “no aircraft were scrambled when an uncorrelated target was picked up so close to the coast” and that “this raises serious issues about the way in which we police the UK’s Air Defence Region”.

Grimsby Live has also reported a number of strange sightings and events in North Lincolnshire. One woman claimed to have been abducted by aliens from her home in Tetney the same day UFOs were spotted over Grimsby.
They report some of their strangest sightings below.
March 2000 – Woman claims to have been abducted by aliens
A woman claimed to have been abducted by aliens at her home in Tetney on the same day UFOs were sighted over Grimsby.
She said that at around 9.30am that morning she was transported from her bed to an alien space ship that was constructed entirely of a steel-like material.
She explained: “I was in bed and felt myself getting weaker and weaker, like I was collapsing. The next thing I knew, I was in this corridor.”
While on board the alien ship she opened a door and was shocked to find a human male “spread-eagled” on a table, while aliens “peeled back his skin to look at his insides”.
The woman added: “There was a female being, who was milky white and wearing some sort of wig, I think it was to try and make her look less frightening, and more human.
“She communicated to me, telling me not to worry about my cats and dog, that they would be looked after.
“She didn’t speak to me in words, just put these thoughts in my head. She didn’t scare me, I think she was trying to help.”
She said she thought she was going to die, but the next thing she knew she was back in her bed and only 11-and-a-half minutes had passed.
“I was so shocked to be back, I thought I was gone for good,” she said.
The woman said she knew people would perceive her as “mad” but honestly believed it was a real abduction.
September 1970 – Fatal crash sparks strange theories
The downing of fighter jet XS894, piloted by American Captain William Shaffner on a September evening in 1970, has been officially documented as a tragic accident.
But reports of bizarre flying transparent spheres, unusual blips on the radar and the fact the aircraft was discovered with its cockpit empty and canopy shut fast has left the story open to discussion.
On the night of September 8 1970, Captain William Schaffner, an American pilot based at RAF Binbrook took off from the flight-line out into the skies over Grimsby and headed across the Humber, and out over the North Sea, heading to Flamborough. Shortly after 10.30pm his plane ditched into the North Sea, five miles south of Flamborough Head.
An air and sea search and rescue operation was launched but it would take a further four days for the joint American and British operation to cease their search.
On October 7, 1970, it was revealed that the plane had been found when navy divers sailed to Flamborough onboard the HMS Kedleston but their search still did not provide answers and they returned empty handed.
August 1999 – ‘Disc’ hovers over Scartho Fork
A UFO was spotted over Scartho Fork. A vast glowing disc hovered over the roundabout and then sped upwards, according a Springfield Road resident.
He added that he had seen the object a total of five times.
He said: “The first time I saw the UFO, I was frightened. The disc gave off a warm red glow and then turned green.
“The disc spun off in to the night sky, moving this way and that in an apparently random way. Who knows where it was going.”
April 2000 – Several sightings of strange phenomenons
Grimsby Telegraph readers flooded the telephone lines with sightings of strange phenomenons.
A Cleethorpes couple got the shock of their lives when an unidentified red ball hurtled towards their house and passed through one of their bodies.
A woman was on the telephone when her husband shouted to at her to look through the window.
She said: ”I left the phone dangling as I saw a two-inch red ball of fire come through the window and pass through my husband’s chest.
“We immediately lifted his shirt to see if it had left a mark, but there was nothing there – we daren’t tell anyone at first, it was very frightening. People will think we’re mad but there was nothing in the sky and not a soul around.”
The man involved said: “I’m too old to be scared, it didn’t hurt but we both saw it and my wife never drinks.”
Meanwhile, one Cleethorpes woman’s husband thought she was “cuckoo” after she told him she had seen a “bright light travelling really slowly across the sky down the Humber” when she put her washing out.
She described the object as “round and big”.

Another reader saw a “really bright light” hovering above Blundell Park.
He said: “It was like a comet, it was so quick it couldn’t have been an aeroplane or a helicopter. It vanished in a split second. It was travelling at a height between 3,000 to 5,000 feet – I can’t describe it, I’ve never seen anything like it.”
October 2003 – UFO spotted near Freeman Street
A couple spotted what they believe was a UFO “turning over and over in the sky” near Freeman Street in Grimsby.

January 2009 – Witnesses say UFO damaged wind turbine
Witnesses in the Conisholme area claimed damage to a wind turbine was caused by a UFO.

The story garnered international attention as was reported on the front page of The Sun.
It was later reported that “bolts securing the blade to the hub of the turbine failed due to material fatigue”.
September 2010 – ‘Strange red aircraft lights’ spotted near Tetney
A second appeal for sightings was printed in the Telegraph, following initial reports of “strange red aircraft lights” near Tetney earlier in the week. The story followed an e-mail from another reader who said they had “possibly just seen two UFOs travelling in an easterly direction over Fulstow village, heading towards the North Cotes area”.
