UFO encounters and sightings in Wiltshire

Maybe Wiltshire is not unique as I’d like to think it is. Most countries have their barren areas. But whether you believe in otherworldly beings or not, encounters and sightings have been playing a part in Wiltshire’s skyline for years.

Here’s a list of documented observations. This list is for Warminster and its surrounding area only. As you can see, it’s renowned. Click here to view a full list of all UK sightings

If you’ve had an encounter or sighting in the Wiltshire please contact me with any photo’s or eyewitness accounts. I will add your comment below this page so that others can read about your encounter. Names and email addresses will be removed to protect anonymity.

  1. I was staying on a boat on the canal at Alton Barnes, It was around 11pm and I went out to have a p*** when I saw this ball of white light slowly hover down and land on the field across the other side of the canal. I went in to tell my brother and he came out, we watched as it sat there for approximately 15 seconds and then shot into the sky and the light disappeared. I feel lucky for witnessing such a sight.

  2. I visited the Salisbury Plain for the first time in 2013 I think it was. Two friends and I were travelling by car to get back to the Village in Wiltshire. As we were driving past we noticed a black disk figure high in the sky, it wasn’t moving it was stood still in the clouds – it was after 5pm and the sky was grey and I’m not too sure if it was raining or not. We observed the disk unsure of what we were witnessing and then the object went into a bright white light and within seconds it had vanished upwards to the sky. I know it definitely wasn’t a plane because they travel slow in the sky and you can witness were the plane is going – this disk vanished upwards in a big bright white light. There wasn’t enough time to catch the moment it happened within seconds we were left shaken and intrigued by what we had seen. I’ll never forget it I thought I would share my experience with others who have been through similar situations to see if their incident connects with ours.

  3. Hi there. I’m from Portsmouth Hants and a member of Hampshire UFO Group, and you can look us up on the Meetup page HUFOG. We are considering a group skywatch up on Salisbury Plain/Warminster this coming June but was wondering what is the best hill around Warminster to observe from, as there are a few and your local knowledge would be very helpful.

    1. Hi there. I would say Cradle Hill. I believe that’s where they do the yearly Skywatch nights. Keep checking back this page as there might be other POV’s. Best regards, Alex

    “Wooten Bassett is rife with ufo activity. For instance, enormous low-flying black triangles (not the tr3-b or black manta) as this thing just was not man made you could just tell. Also strange low flying white orbs to these white ords I call ‘skywriters’ due to their peculiar movements in the sky.

    More often than not if you dedicate half an hour to watching a segment of the sky in WB you will likely see some strange ariel phenomena.

    The one that blew my mind was seeing the black triangle. The beginning of Star Wars when that massive ship passes over silently and R Dreyfuss in his car in c.e’s when the spacecraft flew over it was like a mixture of both.

    The strangest thing was it made almost zero noise but a barely audible buzz (like standing under a pylon) and the air was thick with static.”
