In my research I came across three fascinating letters from a civilian who was seeing and photographing things in the sky over Sussex. It is worth noting that when you write to the MoD they will show people in 30 years time!
I'd like to keep the writer's details private for now.
- 24th August 1976 "...Archeological study of the Paleolithic Artifacts of an obvious machine culture.
The machines discovered on the photographs are engraved on the Artifact...the Tektites have the power to act in unison as a corporeal body. Their motivating power appears to be static electricity.
The power to build up high pressure for good static generation, hence the hot dry weather..."
- 30th August 1976 "Your prompt action 05.30 27th August threw the "Tektites" completely out of gear ...Another incredible 'Set' was forming in the air as the R.A.F. arrived. The plane ploughed through the stuff, a reddish brown Fog. Probably 'Bacteria' in astronomical numbers...a vast swarm occupying hundreds of square miles...a Triple 'Entity'. The Master Mind (Not Known Luminous Balls, capable of individual movement,
several meters in diameter, provide light colouring along he Angstrom spectrum of visible light, and probably beyond, and are aware of security from the ground. The third 'Body' huge Swarms of 'Tektites' making up and filling the body of the 'sets'. I saw the mass Panic int the Air as the R.A.F. made the third pass a little after 05.30 am...the menace must be contained..."
- 31st August 1976 "Many hours observation of the rebuilding of the 'sets' of the 'Tektites' reaches the conclusion that the Entity is still very much intact, and unharmed. To my mind, the sets are on test and in the process of setting in sequence. The detail on the Top Level, behind a curtain of controlled cloud, the Entity uses to conceal the sets during course of construction, is now very sharp. I believe it is practising another deceit almost contemptuously. I believe it is very urgent to find the actual source at ground level, and stop it there.
The building material of the Entity covers hundreds of square miles, but one of the production lines is a few points East of this house. It can be seen to be operating every day."
