The UFO appeared on Sunday, October 12 just south of the English town of Blackpool in Lancashire. Hundreds of attendees at the unfortunately titled Probe International Conference reportedly observed the aerial object, which, according to the Daily Mail, “hovered in the sky for an hour before vanishing from sight under the cover of passing clouds.”

Observers apparently wrote the object off as a mere balloon, but grew increasingly perplexed as the object remained motionless in the sky for such a long period of time.

Probe International organizes two conferences a year, exploring topics including UFOs, crop circles, and paranormal phenomena. Probe International’s Sam Wright says that a UFO appeared at one of the group’s conferences three years ago. But that fast-moving “silver cylindrical object” was only seen by twenty people.

Several attendees have submitted photos of the UFO that was seen at the recent conference, and those can be viewed at the Probe International website. The sighting was also reportedly recorded by a film crew at the event.

  1. I Was born in Blackpool and lived there until 2010. I have myself witnessed sightings of what I would have considered to be UFO’s in the nearbye area as a teenager. It is probably worth knowing that just 6-8 miles east of lytham St Anne’s the is a British aerospace facility at Warton. The site sits on the edge of an estuary and is an aircraft development site.

    In 1998 a friend and I walked dogs along the estuary behind the site at around dusk as we often did , we walked along a trail which lies around quarter of a mile from the fence of the site and leads along the waters edge. We both noticed a commotion at the site and lots of activity next thing we knew there were armed guards surouding us in 4×4’s and we were politely asked at gun point to turn back and go the way we came. We did so and as we walked back down the estuary when two Tornado GR4’s flew past at high speed towards the sea, followed by a sleek triangular shaped object all flying no more than 100ft above the water.

    From what I know now I believe that the unknown craft was probably an unmanned drone that was being tested. I have spoke with a good friends father who worked at the site for many years and he confirmed this. He also said that unmanned craft have been a main stay of the site’s R&D department sinc e the fifties, and the the cold war interceptor aircraft the English electric Lightning was intended to be unmanned. And although the government didn’t have any faith in the safety of unmanned aircraft at the time there were at least six flying prototype’s , when the government scrapped the idea they simply made a bodge job of converting the the aircraft to take a pilot. If you look at the aircraft you can see that the cockpit is an after thought, also the aircraft was renownded for its short range due to a large part of its original fuel tank being taken up by said cockpit.

    So with what I saw sixteen years ago and the fact that unmanned aircraft flying out of there in the early fifties it would not surprise me if this UFO is something to do with the Warton British aerospace site.
