Triangle sighting at Thorton-le-dale
"On Monday 26th March, my two sons and I were on our way back to Scarborough from Pickering after my son had been playing football for the Under-19s. It was about 10 pm and we were a few miles past Thornton-le-dale when we noticed a flashing white light in the sky. At first we thought it was a low-flying plane but noticed it was only one light with no other colours. Then I presumed it to be a helicopter because of the manoeuvres it made. It certainly moved like a helicopter would and was not moving that fast.
As we got nearer to it, it seemed to be stationery above a field. We reached one of the little villages after Thornton (not sure what it's called) and it was directly across from us to our right. I pulled over so we could get a better look at it. It was about 200 yards away to our right, just hovering / stationary. I then said it must be a helicopter to be hovering like that. It had one light at the front and a smaller one at the back. I kept saying to my sons it must be a helicopter and my son joked, 'It might be a UFO, Dad!'
Anyway, the strangest thing was all of a sudden a big oblong blue light flashed on, followed straightaway by a red one. Now we all saw it and were in agreement as to what we just saw and the colours.
I opened my car window to get a better view, as did my son in the back - my other son in the passenger seat got out of the car. Then it seemed to turn slightly and move in the direction towards us. It was moving quite fast. I did say to my sons, if it is a helicopter we will hear it as it was about 50 yards from us. It didn't make the sound you would expect but instead it was a
humming sound. We all heard the same sound so it wasn't just my hearing! It was passing just behind us at approx 100ft above. As it went past us we could see it was triangular-shaped with a light at each point. My eldest son who was out of the car was the first one to say it's a triangle! All three of us agreed that we all saw this triangle with lights which passed over one of the houses to our left. We then lost sight of it.
Now I know a few reports of a triangle have been mentioned before so thought I would tell you this. As I say, it did move like a helicopter and the flashing lights and blue and red oblong lights are very odd as well as the humming noise. Not sure if you have heard of any type of craft, maybe military or something?"
