UFOs in the daily press:

Flying triangle and UFO hunter, U-K., 2002:

The UK local newspaper "The Citizen", via the web site thisisGloucestershire has published an article about the UFO phenomenon and sightings in February 2002 in England:


UFOs, the secrets of Atlantis and hidden history will all go under the microscope at a West conference.

And it looks as though little green men have been flying in to book their seats.

For, as UFO investigator David Kingston was planning the seventh Dorchester Conference on the Unexplained, he received reports of a bizarre triangular craft with red and blue lights, zooming across the skies from Cornwall to Poole.

The mystery machine, some 100ft long, was first spotted in St Austell. There were also reports of it not far from Lyme Regis later the same day, then over Portland and Poole.

Mr Kingston, who first witnessed unexplained flying objects while serving with an RAF intelligence unit during nuclear tests in the Pacific, is at a loss to explain the latest sightings.

He says: "I received a number of consistent reports of a craft flying over the West country on February 15 and there is nothing like it in the world aircraft guide. It was said to be triangular, 100ft long with red lights all the way up on the right hand side and blue lights on the left hand side.

"Underneath was what appeared to be a very large light, in the middle, glowing pale electric blue through to purple with a corona surrounding it."

"Four or five people witnessed it and described it as gliding silently at about 2,000 to 3,000ft. Covert aircraft would not be flown in the daytime over an area like this. It was described as hovering quietly at Portland. The last sighting was near Poole, about two hours after the first."

The witnesses contacted Mr Kingston because he is one of the country's best-known and respected investigators. Since he first heard aircrew talk of seeing UFOS, during the nuclear tests on Christmas Island in 1957, he has catalogued hundreds of reports and witnessed many strange sights himself.

These days Mr Kingston, who lives at Martinstown, near Dorchester, is so well-respected that police pass his name on to people who ring them reporting strange sightings.

Living on the rolling Dorset downland he and his wife, Virginia, are ideally placed for a clear view of the skies. He said: "Last year I saw two or three sightings on the horizon which were definitely not normal aircraft. One appeared as a very bright star, although I looked at it with binoculars and it definitely wasn't. It eventually disappeared very suddenly."

The conference is on April 7 at The Corn Exchange, Dorchester.
