London, June 25 : A British soldier has reported that he witnessed thirteen UFOs rotating in the skies above his military barracks while he was out on night patrol with other two squaddies in Shrops, UK.
Corporal Mark Proctor filmed the objects on his mobile phone and reported the close encounter to Army top brass.
Ministry of Defence experts are studying his report and video taken at Tern Hill barracks near Market Drayton, Shrops.
Mark, of the 1st Battalion Irish Regiment, recalled how he saw the amazing 'craft' just after 11pm on June 7.
"I was on duty in the guard room when the other boys outside began shouting. I went out to see what the commotion was about and could see thirteen craft in the skies," The Sun quoted him, as saying.
"They were zig-zagging, but I filmed two before they disappeared. They were like rotating cubes with multiple colours.
"I made a full report to my commanding officers and gave them my footage. The other lads were as amazed by it as I was," he added.
A 19-year-old private on patrol said that he also spotted the 'fleet'.
"I saw these things flying in the sky and I told my guard commander," he said.
"There were about 30 lights passing over for a few minutes, very high but not at a great speed. They were bright red. Another soldier saw them too," he added.
An MoD spokesman said: "We deal with any UFO sightings to see if there was a military threat."
The sighting came two hours before helicopter police officers reported an encounter with a huge craft 80 miles away near Cardiff.
And three hours before a couple reported that they were followed by a strange light in the sky along the A5 near Shrewsbury.
Dog walker Bonnie Lewis also spoke of the incident when she filmed seven UFOs at Bromsgrove, Worcs.
Lewis said that she witnessed cylinder-shaped craft.
"They weren't from this world. They made no sound and had flashing dots inside," she said.
