A MAN from Worle says he has witnessed evidence of alien visitors in the sky using night vision equipment, having taken an interest in the phenomena for more than 30 years.
Richard Lennie, aged 50, of Midhaven Rise, is recognised as an authority on UFOs and has delivered talks at conferences across the South West after stockpiling information about unexplainable phenomena.
He has also reported a number of hair-raising personal experiences, which include seeing lasers shot from the sky, flying saucers and objects moving at light speed, and extraterrestrial lasers burrowing into the ground.
His theory is that crafts he spies in the sky could be ‘scout ships’ which are manned by trained human pilots to protect the earth, engineered by analysing alien technology which has previously been found in the USA.
Mr Lennie spoke of the first experience which gave birth to his UFO interest.
He said: “In December 1980 I had an encounter with red lights that were hovering over my old school, Uphill Primary School.
“There were seven red lights, they moved in formations and then made a semi-circle. Then they were gone.
“It was reported in the Mercury at the time, although the report said there was only one light. That’s when I caught the bug.”
He says he bought infrared night vision equipment and began to see all sorts of unusual things.
Mr Lennie added: “I go out at night, sometimes all night long.
“You see satellites and bats, but I have seen flying saucers, crafts that look like they were going at light speed, crafts pretending to be stars, all sorts of things.
“A friend of mine in America says he’s actually seen battles with lasers and one craft blew up. I have seen lasers, but no explosions.”
The ufologist started going to conferences in 2009 to spread the knowledge of the things he has seen and has since been interviewed on television and radio.
He says the most incredible thing he has witnessed was on land owned by a woman in Devon.
Richard said: “A plasma laser was going into the ground, burrowing holes in the soil. It looked like they were digging holes in the ground to take soil samples.
“It was over 100ft high coming from the sky. Whatever it was coming from must have been cloaked.
“We saw water being taken from the pond.
“It had rained overnight and the next day we saw a dry square on the driveway, like where a car has parked. Something had landed. I was pretty awestruck to be honest.”
He said the woman’s land had been of interest to outer-planetary observers because it was based on a ley line, an alleged alignment along the planet of a number of places of historical and geographical interest.
Unusually, the owner of the land was able to see the phenomena with her own eyes and even told Mr Lennie where to point the infrared cameras, he said.
His most recent experience in North Somerset was when a group of four red spheres appeared from behind Worlebury golf course.
Mr Lennie is also challenging sceptics to see the evidence for themselves, either by buying night vision equipment for £250 or by looking at the photos and videos he has taken.
He added: “At the end of the day I want to find the truth and get to the bottom of it.”
