Reader Submitted ReportDear Sir,
My name is Xxxxx Xxxx. I am 46 years of age and I spotted something today that shook me very much.
Relaxing in St James Cemetery today, 23rd of April 2009, I was reading the local paper. Suddenly something caught my eye and I looked up to suddenly see, this thing. I could not even begin to describe what it looked like. It was not disc-shaped, but sort of reminded me of some sort of weird-shaped starfish. It was completely black, and moved very very slowly in the sky.
It was low and big and the hairs on the back of my neck stood up. One other thing was that as I was viewing this thing, there where no sounds of birds at all. It moved across the sky by flipping over on itself, like a coin would move when tossed in the air. At first I thought it was some sort of giant seagul, as there where gulls in the sky at the time.
But looking at this, it was something completely and utterly strange. I tried to get a picture of it, as I had my camera at the time, but could not get a focus no matter how hard I tried. I watched it move toward the Anglcan Cathedral, Liverpool, and then it headed toward the city centre and the Tower Resteraunt
I haven't a clue as to what this thing was. It was frightening to say the least. I was alone in the cemetery so could not point this object out to anybody else. I mentioned this object to my wife, and she told me that this thing had been spotted by other people in Liverpool too during the past days.. It was gliding over and above the River Mersey
