A few weeks ago I was driving near Dereham at night and I spotted something black shoot across the road and into the hedgerow. Then about 3-400 yards down the road, I saw what looked to be the same thing overtake me and cut across my lane and into the hedge again. Bare in mind I was travelling about 60mph and this thing moved like lightning fast, too quick to identify it, but whatever it was it appeared to be running. It freaked me out. I didn´t want to stop in hope of seeing it again.
A businessman was left scratching his head after seeing three mysterious grey objects in the sky over Dereham on March 19, 2012.
The man who did not want to be named noticed something amiss when he stepped into the back garden of his home for a cigarette at about 7.40pm.
The teetotaler described seeing three grey disc–like objects with an orange tinge in formation, slowly moving in a south–west direction.
He said: "At first I thought it was three geese. They were in formation like planes – it was two at the back and one at the front. They started to go a lot quicker and the orange glow was a lot brighter, and two split off to the left and one to the right."
"I mentioned it to my wife. I said ‘I´m not going mad but you will never guess what I´ve just seen’. I don´t know what it was."
Andrew Goodchild, 42, a helicopter pilot, was baffled by an unidentified orange light he saw over Norwich just before 10pm on August 2.
Mr Goodchild, who has flown since 1991, said he initially thought it was a low–flying chopper but quickly realised the light was unusual.
Dennis Sayer, of Dereham, said: "Me and the wife spotted an orange light passing our house here in Dereham from the Windsor Park area at about 11.15 on Monday night."
"We were looking out from a bedroom window and it was coming from the Norwich area heading toward Fakenham⁄Wells way."
"It did not appear to be going that fast – about the speed of a helicopter or less."
"I tried taking a picture of it with my mobile but the light was not bright enough."
"It was orange and pulsing and what looked like other coloured lights within it, but the main colour was orange."
Malcolm Vicary, of Old Catton, Norwich, said he was also intrigued by the suspected UFO that night.
Mr Vicary said: "At first I thought it was a hot air balloon because of the orange glow."
"It suddenly changed direction for a short distance then resumed its original course."
"The orange glow then went out."
"It then started to descend quite fast in the direction of St Faith´s, very close to Norwich airport."
He stressed: "I´m sure it wasn´t an aircraft because there were no navigation lights or sound."
Frank Pearsons, 89, watched a "different and strange" orange light over his home in Ipswich late last on Wednesday, August 5.
Mr Pearsons said the dazzling disc hovered magically in the sky.
He said: "I had to wait a while because the moon was so bright, but fortunately it disappeared when the orange light was at its brightest."
"I imagine anyone living in south–east Ipswich could have seen it – it was so bright and it was quite high up in the sky."
He added: "At about 11.45pm I saw a speedy flash of silver dash into the orange globe. I would have thought it went straight inside it."
"And then about 15 minutes later I saw the same silver flash shoot out of the other side of the globe and there were two more flashes from it at 15 minute intervals until about 12.30am."
Mr Pearsons said it was the first UFO he had ever seen.
"I don´t think British technology could produce anything like that, he said. Somebody suggested to me it could be a satellite but it would not behave in that way and it wouldn´t be the bright orange colour."
"I want to know if anybody else has seen the same light."
John Young, 43, of Sprowston, near Norwich, grabbed his camera after spotting a strange shining light on Wednesday, August 5.
He was stunned when he woke up at about 3.30am and looked out of the window.
Mr Young said: "I glanced out of my bedroom window to see a bright light in the sky, much like a star except slightly larger in appearance and considerably brighter."
"It didn´t move but when I played it back on my computer I was surprised to see the object was a perfect sphere with a hole in the middle."
He added: "You can even see it appears to rotate clockwise for maybe 20 seconds then anti–clockwise for the next and so forth."
"I´m perplexed as to what I saw. Maybe there´s a simple explanation but I haven´t a clue what it was."
Mr Young spoke out after dozens of mysterious orange lights were spotted all over Norfolk, including Norwich, Dereham, Downham Market, Holkham and Caister.
Cromer residents may have experienced a close encounter of the third kind when they spotted a UFO hovering off the coast at the weekend.
A bright white and blue light was spotted near to the offshore wind farm at around 8.30pm on August 6, 2012 and after appearing to rise higher into the sky, its lights began to flash green and red around its base.
Andrew Cochran spotted the object and described it as, "Strange."
He said, "I was walking along the sea front heading away from the pier looking out towards the wind turbine farm on the horizon when I noticed it. Then it appeared to move about them. I assumed it was a helicopter. The object then shot up really fast and stopped when it was very high in the sky."
Mr Cochran was joined by a dog walker who also watched the phenomenon before returning to her home.
He added, "I watched the object as it just sat for an hour before it started to very slowly move eastwards. It was not a star, as I know my stars, so I am perplexed and curious."
A RAF officer reported seeing a UFO from his car in Cromer
In a document released by the National Archives in 2011 entitled report of an unidentified object flying officer Green says he saw eight or nine lights in the sky about four to five miles off the coast.
He describes the UFO as, "like a large firework, too large to be flare."
The report says the lights were also witnessed by Oxfam employees and shoppers.
In reply to the report a wing commander says "following enquiries through HQ 2 Gp and RAF Neatishead, there is no evidence that unauthorised military activity or any other activity of air defence interest occurred on 24 Jan 02 in the Cromer area."
Vanda James was woken up three times in early August 2012 to see the "bright, golden light" hovering over the sea to the east of her home in Great Yarmouth.
The 53 year old first spotted the light in the early hours of Sunday morning and then again on Monday and Tuesday.
She said, "I woke up early about 1.40am and what alerted me was how bright it was. It was a yellowy, golden (colour), I thought "that looks like a planet" but what was really odd was the way these waves (of light) came out of it, they were almost curved.
"I sat in bed watching it and it didn't move. It hung about for a long time, 40 minutes or more, and then it suddenly shot backwards, it disappeared within seconds. That was Saturday night."
"On Monday I woke up at the same time and there were two and last night (Tuesday) the same thing again but just one."
St Saviour's Church, Magdalen Street
According to top secret UFO reports released to the public on July 12, 2012 a UFO was seen hovering over St Saviour's Church in Magdalen Street by a woman from the Lakenham area, who claimed she had a series of very close encounters with galactic beings.
In her email to the Ministry of Defence in May 2006, the woman says she had been in contact with the strange craft's occupants, which she calls greys, since when she was a child.
Her email says, "It is a fallacy for the government to assume that these vehicles aren't piloted by intelligences. I sensed the craft was like a living organism, but intelligences were inside it biomechanical."
"I have had experiences with these craft and their occupants from the age of four. I remember seeing the greys and having thought I imagined them by the bed."
"It wasn't until I woke up the next morning with a small pin hole in my navel and it leaking that I knew something happened.
"As far as I am concerned I just lost a little bit of DNA with that encounter. No real harm done and no long term psychological damage."
"I have always come back intact. However I have developed a sixth sense, as it were, or they somehow communicate to me where to point the camera."
A reply from the MOD to the woman states, "With regard to your particular observations, we are satisfied that there is no corroborating evidence to suggest the United Kingdom's airspace has been breached by unauthorised aircraft."
The curious green light was spotted by photographer Peter Rye who wanted to take night time images of Denver mill.
The green UFO appeared on images taken Peter Rye as he photographed Denver Mill in Norfolk.
Photographer Peter Rye who took the picture of the UFO. The windmill can be seen in the distance.
The landmark, which was built in 1835, is lit up at night and so Mr Rye set up his camera on a tripod to take long exposure pictures of the mill.
While he was there he didn't hear or see anything unusual and it is only when he got home to King's Lynn that he realised there was something odd about the images he'd taken.
The green light was on some images but not others indicating it was not a smudge on his lens and it appeared to have moved from right to left.
Plane? Helicopter? Gyrocopter? The theories abound in and around the villages close to the windmill, which is 30 miles from an RAF base, about what went on that February night.
Lindsay Abel, manager of the windmill, told Mail Online, "It is very strange it has to be said."
She said, "The building was an aerial landmark for pilots and had even been used as a navigational tool during World War II."
"The Germans used it in the war when they headed up to the Midlands to bomb," she said.
"Maybe the UFO looking down saw these strange sails and wondered what the hell it was!"
Malcolm Robinson, founder of Strange Phenomena Investigations, said he thought the photograph showed a Chinese lantern.
He said, "Chinese lanterns can be from 2 to 6 feet across and a candle can be lit inside them whereupon the individual then releases them into the sky."
"Chinese lanterns have given rise to many a false UFO report here in the UK."
"What I think has happened here is that the paper which makes up the Chinese Lantern could have been made of green paper and the candle would shine through the green paper turning the image/light to green."
"When photographed, the cold night air would intensify around the light making it blur for the camera."
The 19th century windmill stopped working in 1941 when its sails were struck by lightning but has since been restored and is the last working windmill in Norfolk.
"Me and a friend were out walking the other night and saw a large bright white light, and I mean bright, in the sky, it was moving around in varying directions slowly and then the white light turned into a small red light, and went immensely fast out of sight! I've seen a few comments saying similar things, what's going on?"
"There was a figure not bigger than a star keep dimming then it lit up lighter, started to ascend then disappeared. I looked this morning and there's nothing as if it wasn't there. It wasn't a meteor of anything falling it was a static figure that went up."
"I spotted a large orange light out at sea. This then moved up into the sky and remained stationary for several minutes."
"I was showing my 3 year old son the Orion constellation and was pointing out orions belt then noticed it had FOUR stars."
A security engineer was driving near King's Lynn when he saw a blue light flashing in his rear view mirror, and thought that he was being followed by a police car. When he stopped the car and got out, his car lights went off before coming on again. He then saw that the blue light had gone overhead and was now some distance ahead, spinning in the air. He immediately turned the car back, and reported the incident at the Bethel Street police station.

North Norfolk Coast
A photographer says he is completely baffled by a mystery object which has appeared in a moody night-time picture of the sea off the north Norfolk coast.
Jeff Harrison's photo, lightened by an Archant technician, to show the UFO more clearly.
Jeff Harrison was amazed when he came to look at a photo he had taken the previous evening from the clifftops at Happisburgh and spotted a row of lights in the middle-distant sky.
He cannot explain the row of red and white lights but believes they could be part of a very large object.
Mr Harrison, 52, said, "He had been taking photos for many years and his Canon PowerShot SX20 IS was not a nasty, cheap camera."
He had set it on a chair on the cliffs hoping to capture the moon behind the clouds at about 9.25pm on Tuesday, August 16.
Mr Harrison says he cannot remember seeing anything in the sky through the camera: "But when I took my eye away I remember, almost in a flash, that there was something there one minute, and then it wasn't. At the time I put it down to my eyes readjusting as I moved away, pressed the button and stood back," he said.
He claims the object must have been stationary because the camera's exposure time was set at 2.5 seconds and if it had been moving, the lights would have appeared as lines, rather than dots.
While attending an annual visit to the Kelling Heath Star Party (also known as Equinox Star Party) which is an astronomers get together held by the Norwich Astronomical Society, a object was spotted by an Amateur Astronomer sitting motionless in the sky over the campsite.
At first he thought the object which was oval with a reflective surface may have been a helium balloon or advertising balloon but, stated it was just hanging in the sky motionless, so he immediately aimed his Sony F717 dsc camera and took a shot.
He looked at the image in the lcd screen, zoomed in to check it was captured and it was. He then looked at the object again to frame it. He observed it for no more than 2 seconds, when it disappeared in the blink of an eye.
The witness states - I have good knowledge of telescopes, cameras and weather variables. I truly think this experience is a rare one.
Last night, a friend and myself were sitting in the park enjoying the clear skies and evening. Complete stillness in the air. Until next to us we heard what sounded to be 3 booms of thunder directly overhead they were small and isolated to the one spot above the park next to Unthank road. There was then a complete change in the weather surrounding us. Wind in every direction and an electric buzzing in the air. Not to mention general public activity increased 100% in that 10minutes of activity. I thought I would mention this as i believe we have a big community here in this part of the country.
