UFO over Guernesey - "Enormous" - Two pilots saw an UFO close-up over Guernesey and Alderney flying over the English Channel.
The object was shaped like open flat bottom boat, yellow and shining, with a green zone, estimated at twice the size of a Boeing 737, was seen Monday (April 23, 2007) around 3 p.m., to 20 or 25 kilometers in north east of Guernesey, and about fifteen kilometers in the west of Alderney. The commander Ray Bowyer flew from Southampton towards Alderney to 12000 meters when it observed the light with his binoculars, with approximately 6000 meters of altitude, stationary. Mr. Bowyer "was shaken a little" by this vision. "It is not something which you see the every day, it was rather worrying!"
Continuing its flight towards Alderney, pilot Bowyer saw a second object, identical to the first, further in the west. "It was exactly the same one, but it seemed smaller because it was much further. It was with dimensions of Guernesey." Of the beginning it thought that it was the sun being reflected in the greenhouses of Guernesey. "But if it were the case, that would have disappeared quickly. It was clearly visible during approximately nine minutes." The objects were shining like the sun, but did not make badly with the eyes when they were looked at. The passengers of another plane also observed the stationary objects.
The ministry for British defense declared that there would be no investigation into this case, this one not representing a threat.
In an interview for the chain of local information of Guernesey, the pilot described the object as being approximately a kilometer and half in length.
