UFO Sighting 1989
I had an interesting conversation about an object seen over a field near Barmston around 1989
I am told that three small fishing boats off the coast were all discussing a diamond shaped light that was low overland near the small village of Barmston. At the time the men were at a loss as to what the object could be, some saying they thought it was perhaps a new type of harrier jet. They said this as the object was or seemed to be hovering above a field.
After a while the Diamond shaped light rose higher and then at incredible speed flew directly over the fishing boats and there crews. One interesting point that was made was that all radio contact cut out as the object passed over head. He went on to tell me that what ever it was, was completely silent. Adding that once they got back into the harbour it was all they talked about for a while. It turned out that the crew from the three boats were not the only ones to see it. Any more info on this old sighting would help so if you are reading this and remember it please contact us.

Reader Email North Yorkshire UFOs
Hello I am writting this email in hope of putting some light on events which i
have witnessed within the last 8-10 months although never having an intrest in
ufo activity i am a keen military aviation enthusiast and have never seen
military airtraffic in the skys in such volumes of traffic as we are seeing at
the moment between spurn point and redcar/cleveland area i have no idea why this
is but atleast i know what im seeing unlike the events i keep witnessing on the
Scarborough to Whitby road between 11pm-4am which is massive blue white flashes
in the sky i know its not thunder i also keep seeing the same out to sea between
ravenscar and scarboroughs north bay but there appears to be red lights which
dart about far to fast for aircraft present when in the sky over sea in these
events have had me thinking alot recently any information would be greatly
I replied to the above email below is the readers reply back to ILF
Thanks for your response i havnt read about the flashes on your site but the fact others have seen these tois intresting to hear ,these events i keep witnessing arnt random one offs its reocurring! due to work i travel the route approx 1-4 times per week and 50 percent of the time i witness as described before either inland or out to sea like you said the mass of light does appear to be from the ground up to the sky i have been travelling this route for the past 6 years plus as a ............workingwith many customers in the redcar cleveland area and have never seen anything like this,alsothe massive rise in miltary activity e.g air traffic,logistics on the road , seem to tie in nicely with all this you not think??
Flambrough ufo sighting 12.5.12
An Old sighting sent to us 1.10.11
I have also seen some lights of a orange(ish) look but they was four on about a 45 degree angle although it was about five years ago i was reminded about it by a friend who was with me, At the time i had a farm near Ganstead and we had gone out in the car but stopped on the road to Skirlaught from Gangstead and we saw them for maybe 20 mins over towards the direction of Burton Constable they disappeared to return many miles away in the same formation but opposite angle (like a reflection). I know this was many years ago but on seeing your images it brought back the memories thanks and keep looking and reporting its very interesting and also unexplainable
Green Triangle 4.9.11
Interesting accountCottingham East yorks
Interesting account from Bempton 14.5.11
After listening to this account i cannot help but think that what ever this object was, connected in some way with the witness's thought process as he puzzled to understand what he was lookingat.
Light forms Woldgate 28.4.11
Interesting Sighting 27.4.11
Helicopters over Driffield tonight (27th April 2011) circling for 1.5-2hours (22:30-00:00) over the barracks and Auchinlek close. 30mins before they went did anyone else see the large white light in the sky? It got brighter and larger (looked almost stationary) then moved off slowly to the North and faded away to a grey dot before vanishing. Did not look to be like any satellite I've seen before and it appeared much higher than the helicopters and had no other lights.
Red Objects bridlington 28.1.11
Black UFO sighting 20.12.10
Object seen low over A166
The object was sighted at about 530pm by a lady on her way home from work. She was surprised to see a black shiney disc (reflecting the moonlight) about 20-30 metres above her car as she drove slowlyalong the snow and ice coveredroad towards Fridaythorpe from Garrowby Hill. She commented that alot of the traffic had slowed around this point but there was a police patrol car further ahead with blue lights flashing, so that part could be coincidence. However she is convinced about what she saw.It sounds astonishing. More info please as this sighting is what ILFUFO is all about.
The Osgodby Sighting 7th November 2010
As many people will have read in the tabloid newspapers, a UFO was seen and filmed on 7th November around 4.50 pm. Three objects were in fact seen, all morphing in and out of a semi-translucent state. What interests me more is the fact that they were all seen within a mile as the crow flies of RAF Staxton Wold. This is the oldest operational radar station in the world.
I would think that these objects that were seen in such close proximity to the radar station should have been of immense interest.
I can vouch for the footage being 100% genuine and not tampered with in any way. My reason for saying this is that I have seen the original footage, as it was my daughter and son-in-law who filmed them. My daughter and her husband had taken their young son to the sea front in Scarborough. Living in Cayton, the route home was through Osgodby. They say that as soon as they turned off the new Scarborough road they could see the strange objects in the sky, which looked translucent in parts. The accompanying picture is from the first location that they stopped to view them. It is ironic that the week before I stopped at exactly the same place to take pictures of the sky over Staxton Wold. My son-in-law says that by the time they had pulled over, other cars were doing the same and people were taking pictures. It is not clear if any more footage was taken (time will tell) but this sighting was not anything ordinary. They both say that there seemed to be more to the objects than what the eye could see, if that makes sense; it was as though a cloak or veil was hiding the rest. These are only observations but they are first-hand and that is all we have to work with at this time.
I have been to the location of these sightings on three consecutive evenings since my son-in-law filmed these objects. And I have spoken to them both at length about all the possible explanations as to what they could have been. Starlings have been mentioned on various UFO discussion forums. That was one of the main reasons for going back to the location for one hour before the sightings and an hour or so afterwards. If they were the culprits I would expect to have seen them on each occasion as they gathered to roost. We saw nothing to suggest this.
My daughter and son-in-law saw these objects and this is the closest I have ever got to a first-hand multiple-witness account. Knowing them both as I do, I trust what they are telling me. In truth, he is a total sceptic andI am quite surprised how much this has affected him. They assure me they are not birds.
As I said before, the location is within one mile of RAF Staxton Wold and can be easily seen from where they were filmed, which makes the sighting a little more interesting. We don't have an explanation for the sightings. I have phoned all parties that maybe able to shed light but found nothing of any help.
Luke, my son-in-law, says the closest he can get to describe the objects are that they were like giant smoke rings but at the same time saying they were not smoke rings. Does not make sense, I know, but tell me about a UFO sighting that does.
This footage is of great importance and the sceptic / debunker will struggle to find a reasonable explanation that will fit into Joe Public's mind set.
If anyone else saw this on 7th November or around this date, please feel free to contact me. You are guaranteed discretion and you may be helping to solve the mystery.
Osgodby sighting report by Joe Domer
It was about 4.50 pm and dusk.A man and his wife were driving along the Filey Road from Scarborough town toward Osgodby on Sunday, 7th November, when they noticed something unusual in the sky. At first they take it to be a peculiar type of cloud.Then they realise that it is moving in the opposite direction to the clouds. They pull off onto the side of the road and the man takes a clip of it on his mobilephone / camera, struggling at first to get it 'stationary' and into focus.On the clip it looks like a comet with a tail. It seems to the man as if it is changing shape, and he suggests at one point that it looks like a sea-horse, but his wife suggests itis 'turning' i.e.merely changedits orientation so that the topcannot now be seen.Then they notice a second object and film that.It isanintriguing bit of footage. It looks almost the classic flying saucer shape. There is a lamp post in the foreground behind which the disk-shaped object slowly moves.
Other people appeared to beinterested inthe objects. Another car had stopped and weretaking photographs of it.One nationalnewspaperclaimed to have phoned the local police and been told there weremultiple reports. However, June (SUFOS) phoned Scarborough Police Station and was told there had been no sightings reported around that time in that area.
The following evening, Monday 8th,three SUFOS members visited the site just before dusk and spent two hours in the lay-by where the witnesses had stopped to photograph the objects. They repeated the exercise on Wednesday 10th, when sky and weather conditions were very similar to the night of the sighting, but nothing was seen.
If anyone saw anything unusual in the sky around that time, please contact us. Neither of the witnesses have any idea what they saw.
Sighting of sliver object 6.9.10
This report came to ILF at around 12pm on the same day.
UFO sighting from wetwang15.9.10
I filmed this at 3.15 yesterday over Bridlington town - that is East Yorkshire in the UK. I have to apologize that it is shaky but it was a windy day and I stood in the middle of the garden.
The camcorder is a Sony VX2100 and they are not light. Whatever this is, it is also moving against the wind. I saw it a few minutes before, and have to say that regardless of its origins it is very big.
I have a zoom lens on the camera, so what you are seeing had traveled a considerable distance before I had the chance to film it.
I hope you find it interesting Paul
Today17/08/10 I was walking my dogs along the north promenade, just past the rides area with the waltzes etc. and I saw a orange light in the sky. I thought nothing of it, assuming it was a helicopter or plane etc. which soon disappeared, again, thinking it turned off its light. On my way back home again, getting to the same stretch of promenade I saw it again, this time it was much brighter and looked very close to the ground, it was the height most patrolling helicopters get, however it wasnt making any noise at all, which a helicopter would be at that height. At this point I checked the time and it was: 21:57
I walked on slowly, keeping an eye on it as it moved along, until It eventually stopped moving forwards and started getting dimmer, I realised it was rising high pretty fast. While ascending it started moving back the other way along the promenade again, this time in what looked like a small zigzag movement rather than going strait. I carried on following as it got very high into the atmosphere and was only a dim light in the sky, then after a short while of around 10-15 seconds of flickering in and out of sight it disappeared, replaced with what looked like a dark grey disk that looked like it was rapidly falling down to the ground, I ran down the promenade to try to keep it in sight but it disappeared past Alexandra Ct. However, whether it landed in that area or if it was some ways further past it I couldnt tell as it fell so rapidly out of the sky I couldnt keep up.
After losing track of it and finding no more evidence of it I eventually gave up and went home.
SoMilitary aircraft and silver ball
Hello, I've been in touch a couple of times before about odd things i've seen down here in the South Holderness region of East Yorkshire. Anyway, yesterday (10 August 2010) I heard a low flying jet (as I do most days). It was circling around directly above where i live (near Lelley, East Yorkshire). I grabbed my binoculars and watched it circling and looping for a couple of minutes. It was fairly high, but clearly visible through the binoculars. It was a blue sky, bright sunshine, with a few clouds dotted about. While tracking the jet I spotted what looked like a silver ball hovering, or moving quite slowly, at roughly the same kind of height. I could see it pretty well. It was catching the sun and glinting like a mirror. It seemed like the jet was flying around it. I watched it for about 30 seconds before I lost sight of it in the clouds. The jet circled a couple more times after that and flew off to the south. Pretty odd I thought, I've never seen anything like that before during the day. Hope it's of interest to you. Keep up the good work with the site. Cheers. Luke

Silver Object filmed 13.11.09
Time 4.30pm Lansdown road
Interesting sighting Fridaythorpe East Yorkshire Wolds
Witness Statement: The dog started barking as though someone was at the door. There was one there so I went out into the garden to have a look. Hovering in the sky was a bright orange ball. It started to move slowly then stopped for about 1 minute. It then moved away at quite a speed. If it was a chinese lantern then it had the power to hover, move, stop for a minute, then increase speed and fly away until it vanished in a matter of 30 seconds. I cannot say what it was but it was strange. It was a clear night and there was no sound from the object.

Very Large UFO Seen River Side, Driffield, East Yorkshire UK - 05-16-09
I had an interesting telephone conversation today 19.5.09 from a couple who both witnessed a UFO of huge size over Driffield on 16.5.09, Saturday night. They say the object, which was spherical, appeared low in the sky about 10.30 PM.
They think the location that it was hovering above was riverside close to the mast. I need to clarify what mast this is. The weather conditions were very wet and windy, and this object was steady.
It was deep red in colour, and appeared to be on fire within itself. My immediate thought was a Chinese lantern, but the couple dismissed that, saying it was of huge proportions. I next suggested a hot air balloon. They say it was nothing like a hot air balloon.
I have to say I find it hard to believe a hot air balloon would be in the air at 10.30 PM in those weather conditions. When they pulled up and got out of the car to get a better look, the object rose to cloud height, hovered a few seconds, then shot up vertically at incredible speed.
Its light could be seen flashing through the clouds. I have contacted the Driffield Times, but have not had a reply so far. It will be interesting to hear if any more sightings come to light. An object of this size must have been seen by others in the area.
Bridlington - 05-25-09
Large halogen-sized lights seen hanging in sky by 4 separate witnesses, Monday 25 of May. Time 12.20am approx. Witness names and addresses are available to anyone wanting to question the credibility of this sighting.
It was a star filled night when Alan noticed the large, glowing, white ball of light from his kitchen window. He opened his back door and stood a few moments watching in amazement.
Moments later he shouted to his wife to come and look. Her first reaction was that it was the police helicopter with its search light on. Alan told me it was about the same size, except that this object was totally silent and quite close.
After a few minutes, the light moved to the right and gathered pace. He thinks its direction of travel would have been Scarborough Road area over to Grindale.
At the same time the object was being observed by a couple ,and their teenage daughter from the back garden of their home in St. Johns Avenue. Their description is the same, except they saw two large, silent lights.
I have contacted the local Bridlington free press and passed on the contact numbers. Whether the paper feels it is worthy of news remains to be seen. I did contact the Driffield paper about the sighting reported by a couple the previous week but they never followed up the story.
I feel that telling the plain facts as they are told to me is not enough.
UFOS SEEN BRIDLINGTON 15.3.07
Bridlington free press 15/3/07-The paper printed eight separate reports of orange and red balls of light seen along East Yorkshire coast line. Some of the sightings were multiple witness. And they all claim the objects were silent able to move up and down and sideways . They say the balls of light moved in deferent directions to each other which would rule out Chinese lanterns or balloons as these would travel in a very similar line with the following wind.
So what are they?
UFOs seen over Bridlington 5/3/07
After a long talk with David Hinde on Sunday evening i came away feeling that his sightings still fitted comfortably into the category of UFO. David seemed very articulate and level headed and openly admitted to having no interest in ufo before this sighting. His journey from Malton to Bridlington was uneventful until he reached the dottrill public house. David used this as a reference point as it was from this location that he saw the lights.
They were quite high in the sky and red orange in colour. He estimated there size to be about twice as big as a star. They were not moving as a plane would and seemed to be able to move up and down and side ways. They were so unusual that he decided to pull over in a lay by and watch them. Using the road as a sort of guide he realized that they never moved from the right hand side of the road.
He also estimated that they were somewhere above the Honeypot pub. This public house is quite remote and off the beaten track. As interesting as the sighting was , after 10 to 15 mins [time now 1105PM] David reluctantly got back in his car to drive home. It was at this point something a little unusual happened. Spooky was David's words. As he started the engine and turned on the lights the red/orange light of the ufo went out.
At that point he felt a little uneasy. I did ask him if it was merely that the lights from the car had stopped him from seeing them. He said not, and that the sky that evening was very clear and bright. David continued to look for another minute or so and to his surprise they appeared again.
At this point David continued his journey home, his head full of what he had seen. And like the rest of us still looking for answerers to the puzzle.
ILF now has many sightings and reports of these orange/red spheres over Bridlington and they seem to be on the increase. I would like to here from anyone else who has seen them.
An unidentified seen hovering 2/3/07 over a field near Staithes on Monday night by a teenager returning home. Steven Dye (18) who lives in Staithes, says he saw the phenomenon, silently shining close to where he was driving towards the village from Boulby at around 8PM. He said: "I saw something floating in between Staithes and Hinderwell from where I was looking."
It had about eight lights, red and orange coloured and it just stayed in the same place for about 10 or 20 seconds before fading away. It is the first time I have seen something like that. I told my Mom and we went back down there later on but there was nothing there.
It is interesting to note that these sightings are within a few days of each other and along the same stretch of coast line. ILFUFO have reports of other people seeing these objects and fishermen off the coast of Bempton and Bridlington

Bridlington 27 july 2007
A fisherman says he saw a dark object that he said was a drone of some kind (his words not mine). Iit was travelling at great speed and was being pursued by 2 jet fighters.
The man went on to say the planes were screaming through the sky in an attempt to catch up with the object that vanished into the distance.
The conditions were overcast and the time was mid afternoon. If it is of interest I will speak to the man further. It is a first hand sighting and not the usual 'a friend of a friend told me he saw this thing.'
He had told me of sightings in the past. When I bumped into him we chatted and I asked the usual. Have you seen anything UFO related. To which he said no.
Then a few moments later he said I did see an odd black object the other day though being chased by 2 jet planes. I do need to follow this up more to get an idea of the objects shape and size etc.
It was a chance encounter in the street and not the place to question a man in detail. I am very confident about this sighting and I think could even get him to open up more.
u These military helicopters circled above my garden, probable just on a routine exercise. Over a town.
