The British UFO Studies Centre (BUFOSC) and Lancashire UFO
Society, under the direction of UFO investigator Eric Morris,
are looking into reports of a 'UFO landing' event said by
several witnesses to have taken place on Sunday night/Monday
morning (28th Feb/1st March 1999) in an area near Knutsford in
Witnesses report anomalous lights in the area and claim to have
seen red and white lights descending very slowly into a nearby
wood whereupon the objects were said to have behaved 'as if
under intelligent control'. Neither local authorities, Police,
Fire Brigade or Air Traffic Control at Manchester International
Airport can shed and light on these unusual events and a
thorough search of the area by a BUFOSC team yesterday (2nd
March) and today (3rd March) has discovered some interesting
1 - Ground traces in the form of burn marks and scorching -
possibly associated with the lights reported.
2 - An unusual patterning in the surrounding bracken suggesting
that it has been pushed down or "squashed" by something - this
over an area of nearly 60 metres.
3 - Evidence of tree damage and disturbance to local wildlife.
BUFOSC investigators have taken many soil samples and similar
evidence from the scene and it is intended that these should be
Military monitors and aviation experts associated with BUFOSC
have not, as yet, reported any unusual military activity in the
area within the specified time frame and nobody has come forward
to suggest military aircraft as a possible cause of the UFO
reports. The area in question lies on the outer perimeter of the
TMA associated with aircraft operations at Manchester Airport
and it is also highly unlikely, but not impossible, that
civilian aircraft are responsible.
BUFOSC has carried out local house-to-house enquries with little
success although it is likely that there were other witnesses to
these events. A UFO report from Birmingham came in yesterday as
a result of a long standing arrangement whereby sightings are
passed on by Birmingham Airport to BUFOSC. UFO reports from the
Lancashire Coast have also been made to the Lancashire UFO
Society in recent days.
Eric Morris believes that this incident is of the greatest
potential significance and has already given detailed interviews
and information to local newspapers.
This is a joint LUFOS/BUFOSC enquiry.
