SEPTEMBER 2014 - DEE ESTUARY OFF FLINT
DEE ESTUARY OFF FLINT
Exact date in September not known - ignore date.
Witness said this happened at the end of September 2014.
About 3 PM. Clear sunny day, no cloud.
Lynn Murphy was with her son, Jason Thomas travelling on the A548 from Connah's Quay towards Flint. They saw a bright silvery object over the Dee Estuary on the right ahead of them in the direction of the end of Wirral peninsula. They watched it as they went through Oakenholt and continuing on this coastal road. They decided to get down to the river for a better look so stopped at Flint at the water's edge and got of the car.
Lynn: "We were at the end of this platform and watched it. And we just stood there and we couldn't figure out what it was.We were only there for a couple of minutes I think and it just disappeared. We tried to figure out what it wasn't, but we didn't know what it was."
Lynn remembers it as being a silver ball, but her son, being ex-military and good at aircraft recognition said it was a crescent in shape, but its top was angled rather than a perfect curve. And it was metallic and silvery in colour. Jason estimates that it's distance away from them was about 2 to 2 1/2 miles, which would mean that the object would have been up to 100 metres in length.
It was at an elevation of 50-60 degrees, had no flashing lights and was silent. As they were watching it disappeared. It didn't fly off, it just disappeared instantly.
Location on map is approximate.
