In recent years, naval, military and scientific sources have begun to acknowledge the existence of UFOs. Explanations run from the commonplace, such as misidentified balloons or birds, to the more thrilling notion of extra-terrestrial visitors.
This illustrated map and guide identifies 41 credible unexplained sightings in the skies above the United Kingdom. Entries include the 1980 incident in Rendlesham Forest, reported by military personnel; the Welsh schoolchildren who described a ‘figure in a silver suit’ emerging from a dome-shaped craft one lunchtime; a 77-year-old rejected by humanoid beings as being ‘too old and too infirm for our purpose’.
Written and researched by the hosts of That UFO Podcast, The Skies Above is a lively, fact-based exploration of one of the planet’s last great mysteries. Design: Beth Mathews.
