51/13/01. 3 January 2013 - 17:05 - Nailstone, Leicestershire, UK - A green aerial object was observed by several witnesses. Witness (A) stated: “We were in our car when we saw a bright green object fall out of the sky. This object left a yellow trail that disappeared. The object broke into 2 - 3 pieces before vanishing.” (PE-7B). (lufoin).
51/13/02. 5 January 2013 - 21:00 - Leicestershire, UK - A triangular object was observed in the sky. Witness stated: “I went out in the garden for a smoke. The sky was very clear so I took a look up at the stars, then I saw out the corner of my eye what on first sight I thought I saw a shooting star. On closer inspection I realised I was looking at a triangle shaped craft. It moved very fast with no noise.” (IN-Med). (uk-ufo).
51/13/03. 5 - 8 January 2013 - 21:00 -Fleckney, Leicestershire, UK - Several unusual lights in the sky were observed by male witness on three consecutive evenings. Witness stated: “For the last 3 nights (beginning on the evening of Saturday 5th January 2013), I have witnessed lights moving over the above mentioned area. I live in a flat based on the outskirts of South Wigston with clear and open southern and westerly views of surrounding fields (designated flood land, meaning no artificial lights in most directions for a fair few miles). My flat backs directly onto the River Soar and as such has several walking paths in the area. On Saturday night just after 9 p.m. I went out for a stroll. I have an amateur interest in photography and do this quite often as the view of the night sky is fairly clear in the area. The path I was walking along faces the direction of Fleckney, Kibworth, Rutland Water etc. After 5 minutes I saw what I thought was the space station shining in brightly in the distance (almost exactly the same size as the visible stars but much brighter and rapidly flickering white/red/blue/green). I walked to the edge of a line of trees in an open field and after watching it for a minute or two my heart stopped when it moved with great speed to the right. Thinking it was my imagination or that I was simply swaying myself I watched it again, and it saw it moving tens of times in all directions, stopping for a second before rapidly (almost immediately) moving again and again. It was at this point that I ran back to the flat to get a camera (Canon DSLR 600D) to try and film it. When I got back to the tree line the light started to slowly rise and then split into three different lights, two orange, and one bright red, and then line up together and hover. Unfortunately I hadn’t even got the camera on the tripod at this point, and when I had I was unable to pick anything up whilst trying to film, but I did manage to take several long exposure timed shots which picked up the lights. After the first couple of pictures I looked up and realised that another orange ball had appeared separate the other three, and was far out in front of the orange/red/orange lights forming a sort of “T” in the air, but over a massive area, so I took another shot, only for three much smaller lights to then appear behind the first three. The objects stayed in formation moving slowly (against the wind) and at times sped up and moved at speed individually before finally disappearing. This all happened over a period of 40 minutes or so. I then went out again the next night with a friend to see if it came again, to my surprise (this time around 8 p.m.) we saw two yellow lights moving together, about the same distance apart, in unison and again very erratically in a start stop motion. However this time the lights were further away and much lower on the horizon.

We stood and watched them for about 20 minutes zipping left/stopping/right/stopping and then rising vertically, before they dropped behind the tree line across from us and out of sight. I again went out last night (January 8th.) at around 8:45 p.m., (this time with my flat mate), and unbelievably the original light I mistook for the space station has seemingly returned, in a slightly different area of the sky, but still flickering red/blue/white/green and moving with great speed. This time I went out with a digital camera with a bigger zoom capability, and watched it hang and then move for almost half an hour, again unable to film it because of its relatively small size and distance from us. After a short while another light (orange) then seemingly appeared out of nowhere, and began moving in the same zipping fashion as before to the now almost stationary main light. At one point it lit up and easily became the brightest object in the sky, dwarfing the light from passenger planes flying overhead (as I mentioned, the sky in this area is relatively clear at night meaning we could see all passenger planes etc. flying overhead, giving us a pretty good means of comparison to what we were seeing). The orange light in the direction of the main bright light (still moving in a small area, dimming and brightening, rising and falling) for a few minutes before evaporating/vanishing. At one point we could see the light beam from people on what I guess was a nearby farm with powerful torches, who started shining them in the sky in the direction of the objects like spotlights. This continued for over half an hour until clouds started moving in, and the remaining (flashing) main light went behind them. . . and then almost cheekily popped back out again for about ten seconds (staying in advance of the moving cloud) before moving again behind them.” (Wood).

51/13/04.12 January 2013 - 23:12 - Desford, Leicestershire, UK - Three orange red lights were observed in the sky by male witness. Witness stated: “I Witnessed 3 x objects in a rough line astern, spaced at roughly 1/2 mile intervals at circa 1,500 feet, travelling at roughly 250 to 350 miles per hour in a westerly direction. The objects themselves could be best described as looking like a ‘fireball’ with a single oscillating orange/red light as opposed to separate wingtip & tail strobes. Altitude appeared constant and all three passed directly overhead with no noise whatsoever. I would estimate size of objects to have been at 30 to 50 foot diameter. Would put sighting down as three military aircraft but totally silent, no engine noise whatsoever. Also witnessed by other family members. I don’t believe in ‘little green men’ but I’m struggling to explain what I saw.” (PE-5C). (uk-ufo). Also: (Our UFO Society).
51/13/05. 13 January 2013 - 00:00 -Braunstone, Leicestershire, UK - A stationary flashing round object was observed in the sky by male witness for approximately 20 minutes. Witness stated: “I saw a flashing, blue, red, green, yellow - round object spotted around 12 a.m. last night above Braunstone. The object moved slightly to the right over a space of 20 minutes then went extremely high and stayed in same position for an hour until I went to bed.” (IN-NL). (lufoin).
51/13/06.27 January 2013 - 21:50 - Hinckley, Leicestershire, UK - An indiscernible aerial object was observed low in the sky with what appeared to be two very large and extremely powerful flashing white oblong-shaped anti-collision lights attached to it. It was in view by three witnesses for approximately fifteen minutes during which time no sound whatsoever was heard even though it appeared close.

The object moved slowly towards the north-west, before slowing slightly and then changing direction to head direct west for approximately eight minutes, finally changing direction again to fly southerly at an accelerated rate of speed before finally disappearing. (PE-1A). (lufoin).
51/13/07. 28 January 2013 - 20:00 - Scalford, Leicestershire, UK - A stationary bright light was observed by married couple. Witness (A) - Wife - stated: “Between mid December 2012 and 28th Jan 2013 (last night) my husband and I have travelled 3 or 4 times in the evenings on the A607 between Waltham on the Wolds and Melton Mowbray in both directions and every time we look in the direction of Scalford/Holwell we see a stationary bright light that at first we thought was Jupiter or Venus, but as we watch it, it changes from a bright yellow light as we drive along, to flashing green/red like an aeroplane then changes to yellow (not flashing) again. We can watch it for a good few minutes and then it seems to disappear. Waltham transmitter is in the other direction while we observe this. If it is a hovering helicopter why is it in the same place every time we travel this road whatever the time of night? It can't be a star as it changes colour but not position in the sky, and not a plane as it does not move. We think it may be another transmitter but a long way off and so can't see a tower below it?” (PE-2B). (lufoin). 51/13/08. 30 January 2013 - 21:02 - Loughborough Meadows, Leicestershire, UK -A green aerial object was observed. Witness stated: “I saw something in the sky but I don’t know what it was! It was green, travelling downwards faster than an aeroplane, and had a very short tail. It was only in view for seconds so it had disappeared before I could work out what I was seeing. I observed the object from Holm Fields Avenue Loughborough. I am not a UFO person but I could not identify it.” (PE-7B). (uk-ufo).
51/13/09. February 2013 - Daytime, Leicester, UK - Three disc-shaped aerial objects were observed and photographed by 13 year-old schoolboy. Witness stated: “I was taking pictures with my iphone when I noticed hovering objects outside of my house. I took a photo and then they vanished. There where 3 of them. I put the picture on facebook. A few days after I was playing out side with my friends seeming as I was only 13 and car parked near us. One of the men got out of the car he was wearing a ball fedora a black suit black shiny shoes and black glasses. ‘Luke Robinson’ he said, I replied yes. He told me that the photo on my Facebook had to be taken down or else. They said ‘a young boy could get hurt in a dangerous world like this.’ Then he got in the car and drove off me and my friends went to my home. I took the photo down put I still have it on my phone.” Robinson. (IN-Med). Credit: UFO Evidence.

51/13/10. Late February/early March 2013 - 23:00 - Leicester, UK - A thin beam of light was observed coming from the ground. Witness stated: “It was late February or early March about 11 p.m., when I went out my back to have a smoke. The sky was clear and my yard faces south in south east. Suddenly, a white thin line of light came up from the ground direction to about 100 ft and then stopped for two seconds. Then, two shafts of light shot out, one each side. They then seemed to be in the middle. They shot straight up at speed so fast and with no noise at all. No trail of light followed it up. It certainly was no fire work. I'm only reporting it because it looked like something out of a science fiction film.” (IN-NL). (lufoin). 77/13/11. 26 March 2013 - 11:05 - Coventry, UK - A peculiar bleeping sound was heard then a purple cigar-shaped object was observed in the sky. Witness stated: “I heard a peculiar sound, it sounded like a repeating bleep. I looked up at the sky and saw a purple shaped cigar object with lights on either side and a banana shaped yellow visor. I saw it for only 4 seconds.” (IN-Med). (nuforc).
51/13/12. 2 April 2013 - 23:00 - Hinckley, Leicestershire, UK - A bright flash in the sky was observed. Witness stated: “I looked up towards the north when suddenly, a small area of the sky seemed to explode with light - this lasted for a few seconds and then vanished. There wasn’t a sound.” (IN-NL). (lufoin).
51/13/13. 16 April 2013 - 16:00 - Wykin Village, Hinckley, Leicestershire, UK - A black ‘teardrop’ - shaped object was seen in the sky. Witness stated: “My Wife and I were approaching Hinckley by car along Wykin Road, when I noticed a black object hovering low in the sky above a field over to our right. This object seemed to resemble an elongated teardrop. I told my Wife to stop the car so that I could see it clearer and to see if I could hear any aircraft engines. We eventually stopped, but the object was nowhere to be seen. I then caught sight of the object again, this time it appeared over to our left, and it was moving away from us very fast. It remained in view for a few minutes, never changing it’s shape, and still looking like an elongated teardrop.” (PE-2B). (lufoin).
51/13/14. 19 April 2013 - 16:20 - Hinckley, Leicestershire, UK - A strangely lit aerial object was observed by a male witness. Witness stated: “There was one big light at the front and then a lot of little ones - it was too big and too high to be anything else - not a balloon or Chinese lantern. It was way higher than that.” (Thornton). (IN-Med). (The Hinckley Times).
51/13/15. 29 April 2013 - 23:00 - Leicester, UK - Unusual lights in the sky were observed by a male witness. Witness stated: “First of all I saw what looked like a star moving which was quite bright, but with the speed it was travelling. I next thought it was probably a satellite, then it went really bright and gathered speed before fading out and looked as if it was travelling straight up. Around 20 seconds later exactly the same thing happened again in almost the same part of the sky, which was followed quickly by two planes, one which seemed to circle that part of the sky then backtracked and the other plane flew straight through the area and onwards, these lights which I am quite sure were not satellites, planes, lanterns or meteors.” (IN-NL). (uk-ufo). 77/13/16. 1 May 2013 - 18:08 - Hurley, North Warwickshire, UK - A round black object was observed in the sky travelling at the speed of a powerful bird - 12 seconds duration. (IN-Med).

(Leicester Mercury).
Witness (B) stated:“My mum-in-law and I were sitting in the conservatory and saw what looked like a falling star in Huncote. We had friends round and were chatting. We glanced out of the window and saw a white light going past behind trees. To begin with, we thought a plane was going down.” (DE-7B). (Leicester Mercury). Witness (C) stated: “I am just informing you of a UFO sighting my parents have just seen in the Ratby area of Leicestershire. They were watching the television when out of the window they saw a low bright green object going through the night sky at a massive amount of speed (faster than a aircraft) and then going into the distance, they said they haven’t seen anything so bright green like that before. Very weird, they said it was really close, no noise or anything, I was in the house at the time when they told me so I know there wasn’t a sound.” (DE-7B). (uk-ufo). (Same date UK; 22:00 - Helsby, Cheshire - Detail | 22:00 - Harborne, Birmingham - Detail | Wirral - UFO sighting Wirral, UK, 8th may 2013 - Detail).

Witness stated: “Today was very cloudy and I was looking at them moving with the strong wind when I saw a small circular object come out from behind one cloud and into another. It looked white in colour and was moving at a speed similar to that of an aircraft. I tried to look at the other side of cloud waiting for it to come out other side, but it didn’t. I then saw another identical object travelling in same direction and go behind cloud again.” (PE-1B). (uk-ufo).

Witness (A) stated: “I Looked out of the bedroom window on Saturday 29th June 2013 at 3.55 am in Ashby de la Zouch and noticed a very bright light which I assumed to be a star to the left of the moon. whilst watching it, it started to reduce in size and move. What I had thought to be a star was much brighter than the moon. As it moved it became flatter and wider...more of an oval shape and I could see lights rotating red, orange, green and blue around the object. Occasionally I noticed sparks of light shooting off from it. It stopped moving for a few minutes and then started again. I called my wife and she saw it move into the distance. Then a second bright object just appeared in the same place as the original object had been. The second object did exactly the same as the first and then they were both gone.” (IN-Med). (lufoin). 77/13/23. 1 July 2013 - 23:22 - Coventry, UK - A bright star-like object was observed crossing the sky. Witness stated: “I was getting my bags of food shopping out of my car when I looked up to close my boot, I noticed what looked like a star gliding so smoothly over the sky, at a speed I cannot even comprehend. It was brighter than a star, that’s what made me notice it, but looked as high as a star, but was obviously within the earths atmosphere. It’s a windless night, mild slightly cloudy night and was definitely not the clouds moving and a star being behind them! I know it was not an aircraft of any kind we have, it was far too high…and round, circular like an orb. I counted the time it took to cross out of my eye line into a large low lying cloud, with one last break within it to see it one last time and that was 5-6secs! It was flying at an angle of 35-40 degrees, just majestically with ease soaring through. It was so fast, so smooth, so bright and an absolute thing of beauty.” (IN-NL). (uk-ufo).
51/13/24.7 July 2013 -18:35 - Hinckley, Leicestershire, UK - A white oval-shaped aerial object was observed crossing the sky. Witness (A) stated: “Whilst standing in our garden, my Wife and I noticed a low-flying red micro light aircraft slowly crossing the sky. As we watched it pass overhead, I noticed what appeared to be a silent, white oval-shaped object cross virtually in front of the aircraft, appearing to almost collide with it. The object then slowly travelled towards the north-west finally disappearing from our view behind trees. I then ran indoors to get my binoculars, also running upstairs to look out of our bedroom window in an attempt to see more of the object, but on looking, strangely, it had completely disappeared. The object, when in view, did not appear to be a balloon of any kind, or a Chinese lantern etc. However, I would have liked to have obtained a better view through binoculars to be sure it wasn’t something like a gyrocopter for example which I believe have been seen over Hinckley quite recently.” (Freeman). (IN-Med). (lufoin).
77/13/25.11 July 2013 -21:25 - Coventry, UK - Two unusual aerial objects were observed by male witness. Witness stated: “Looking out of my bedroom window, in a north-easterly direction, I noticed two objects in the sky, travelling in the same upwards direction, but one slightly ahead of the other, and one slightly higher than the other, but both at similar speeds. There were no flashing beacon lights that would normally be associated with civilian or military aircraft, also, there appeared to be no sound associated with them. The objects themselves appeared to be glowing, but also leaving a glowing trail behind them. They were visible for approximately 45 seconds, then disappeared. (Not out of view, they were just no longer visible in the sky)." (Hudson). (IN-Med). (lufoin).

Witness (A) stated: “My partner and I were sitting outside, about 7 or 8 orange flame like objects appeared in almost a bird formation? Definitely not Chinese lanterns! Moved very fast and silently, they kept in formation and didn’t fade, just disappeared! I am the most logical person and even I couldn’t understand what I was seeing.” (PE-5C). (uk-ufo).

51/13/29.28 July 2013 -19:00 - Leicester, UK - Witness stated: Two unusual aerial objects were observed by male witness. “I only saw one at first - the object got my attention because of how high up in the sky it was, for me it was too high to be a plane - there was no cloud coming from the engines like you normally see from a plane. However I though maybe it could be a plane, till the 2nd appeared behind it, it kind of lit up like a bright ball, this was more noticeable because it is light outside still, they disappeared behind the clouds - I heard no noise and the objects were moving slow - a helicopter then flew over in the direction of the sightings.” (IN-Med).

I drove as fast as I could along Tile Hill Lane where I could see it in the distance now moving north, north east. I turned onto Banner Lane, parked in lay by and got out to try and see it again. I asked two women if they had seen or heard anything in that area they said no. I stayed, phoned a couple of friends to tell them and saw it again while on the phone. By time I turned camera on to attempt a photo it had moved north north east behind buildings and trees out of my view. I compared it to two separate aircraft landing at Birmingham International Airport while stood at same point. Both appeared higher and noise was heard from engine, the object I saw first started similar size to helicopter then changed to a larger object with single white light at front, two amber flashing lights at outer edges, a single red light at rear and a row of 3-5 white lights approx 10 foot from red light.” (IN-Med).

From the moment I spotted it the object was climbing, it did a small circle above us turning precisely and then disappeared into the clouds. When I first spotted it I thought it was some sort of remote controller glider so I pointed it out to my brother in law. We watched with amazement as it flew so precisely in windy conditions and turned without tilting and with no noise. It was daylight and there were no lights on the object.” (IN-Med). (uk-ufo).
