UFO sighting in Bracknell

Back in 2013, pubgoer Steve Holden spotted two-disc shapes in the sky and captured the bizarre moment on his phone.

At the time, Running Horse pub manager Marti March said it was "probably just a plane". 

He told the News: "I raced upstairs for a better view but it was so far away and was getting dark.

"I don't think it was a UFO to be honest with you, it was just flashing lights on a plane."

The website said: "Two of the sightings were made by Bob Percival, the chief reporter at the Slough Express newspaper. As well as being a journalist, he also had over 25 years' flying experience.

"His sighting took place in the evening, and this one he was unable to explain away. He described it as looking like a blinking red ball with a cigar-shaped tail beneath it - like an upside-down exclamation mark.

"It was south-east of Cippenham, where he lived, and appeared to be north of London Airport. He observed it for 4 minutes during which time it remained perfectly still."

It all began when Jill Bodman, aged 22, saw a bright, bell-shaped object hovering over the road in Winnersh.

Speaking to the Chronicle she explained: “It was a dull metallic grey colour but shone brightly when near reflected light.”
