Hah! I knew the FOIA would be worthwhile. For example, from the Ministry of Defence's FOI Reading Room - UFO Sightings 2004: Reports Received by MOD [PDF] is the following:
On the 9th of November '04 a sighting was reported at Warmington, Northants
"The object was very bright like the sun, and it looked like the size of a space hopper! Had flames coming off of it, so it could have been a meteorite! Now says probably was!"I love the way that the MoD have all those exclamation marks in there. How do you get a job on the UFO sighting hotline?
