It was ��evening 1980 xmas day when I was 14 1/2. ��I was with ��my dad and step mum driving to my aunts house in Eldene Swindon. We parked outside her house and were about to get out when we saw this large dark grey dull metal coloured zeppelin shaped ufo just above the houses in front of us. It was the length of 2 houses and seemed to be just above them still and silent. The bottom half had ridges going all around and it had lights all along the top half.�� My dad went to get out of the car to show my aunty, me and my step mum were too scared to get out of the car. I can remember grabbing my dads jacket shoulder and yelling at him not to get out,my step mum was really panicing and near hysterical. I remember leaning in between the 2 front ��seats and just staring up at it,it felt like it was looming over us. After what seemed like ages but was probably only a minute it divided up into about 5 ��sections and shot off one after the other to the left at lightening speed. I have read reports that there was a meteor that night as well as a russian space ship breaking up. This was definitely none of them it was close enough to us and clear enough that I could see the ridges on the bottom half. We were shocked by it and still talk about it.
