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 4 trees.
It was pulsating red to orange to red to orange like a heartbeat.
I could not see any windows in it.
I was terrified and 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 distance 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.
