Flashing cigar-shaped UFO over Downswood, UK

Cigar UFO Sighting

20th August 2023, Maidstone, UK – In the era of advanced technology and scientific discovery, there still remain moments that are shrouded in mystery and wonder. A recent event that took place over Downswood has grabbed the attention of UFO enthusiasts and skeptics alike, adding to the ever-growing catalog of unexplained “UFO sightings” from around the world.

Witness Report: A Glimpse Into the Unknown

On a day marked by clear skies and a backdrop of azure blues, a mysterious long rectangular object was seen emitting an extraordinary light. Travelling in an easterly direction at approximately 15,000 to 20,000 feet, the UFO, visible to the naked eye, was brightly illuminated—whether by its own lights or a reflection remains a subject of debate.

However, what made this sighting particularly compelling was its peculiar behaviour. The lights from the object flashed intermittently, causing the UFO to momentarily disappear before resurfacing in the vast sky. This unusual pattern of appearance and disappearance left many onlookers in awe and bewilderment.

Contextual Puzzle Piece: The Eastbourne Airshow

In a curious twist to the narrative, an Eurofighter Typhoon, participating in the Eastbourne Airshow, was spotted flying from the North to the South. This jet, cruising at a height considerably lower than the unidentified flying object, provides an intriguing contrast and context to the sighting.

Did the two events, occurring almost simultaneously, share a connection? Or was it simply a remarkable coincidence that a highly sophisticated and identifiable aircraft was present near the mysterious high-flying entity?

Captured for Posterity

Thanks to the advancements in smartphone technology, the strange spectacle was captured on a Google Pixel 7 Pro mobile phone. The video accompanying this article clearly showcases the object’s trajectory and distinctive features. It serves as a visual testimony, inviting viewers to come to their own conclusions about the unexplained phenomenon.


While the existence of extraterrestrial life remains a divisive topic, UFO sightings like the one over Downswood serve as tantalizing clues to the enigma. As interest in the unknown continues to grow, and as people from different corners of the world come forth with their own stories and evidence, one thing remains certain: The sky, in all its vastness, still holds secrets waiting to be unraveled.
