Extremely fast moving silver object very high over Nottingham

Watching cricket match at Trent Bridge. Beautiful bright blue sky. Was watching a buzzard gliding around at some height above the pitch. Said to my friend, “see the buzzard?” and then “Oh, and there’s a UFO”. A silver object, the size that a large airliner would appear to be at its maximum height, was streaking across the sky directly above from my right to left. There was no way anyone would notice it unless they happened to be looking in that direction, as I was. It would have been unremarkable if it was travelling at airliner speed, but it was travelling at a speed I have never seen before. There was no contrail, no sound, and it had the appearance of a disc rather than an aeroplane. I have been around aeroplanes all my life, hold a Private Pilot’s Licence, operated a parachute school for many years and monitored aircraft throughout the day for years, but have never seen anything travel like this. If I had to put a number on the speed, I would estimate it was travelling at 5 times the speed of an airliner, i.e. thousands of miles per hour. So why no sonic boom?
I keep an open mind about UFOs but have never before seen anything remotely resembling one. It moved across the sky so fast it was only visible for perhaps 8 or 9 seconds so I wish I had picked it up a few seconds earlier. It disappeared from view because of sheer distance, whereas an airliner can be seen for a pretty long time and fades from view gradually. As I write, I feel it was probably much more than 5 times the speed of an airliner, but of course it is difficult to estimate. I have no explanation. Just telling it as it was. It could have been airliner altitude or much higher. Remarkable.

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (ELFIS.net), organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
