I was in a field on a hill above Consett with my friend. It was Sunday. I had gone to check out my old Thoroughbred mare before going home. The mare became agitated & started to sweat, the veins on her neck stood out. She flung her head up & looked up at the skyline.
I followed her gaze & saw a huge cigar shaped object hovering just above four trees. It was pulsating red, orange, red, orange like a heartbeat. I could not see any windows in it. I was terrified & could not speak, I just hung on to the horses mane, dumbstruck.
Finally I shouted my friend's name. She turned towards me, she was some way away from me. As she did so, the huge object flew up, and away in a high parabola, incredibly quickly.
Sadly she did not see it, but saw how upset both the horse & myself were. I was terribly shaken by this & have never forgotten it.
