Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near Dunmow England, on October 25, 1989, in the evening, three men were riding their motor bikes along an isolated stretch of road when they saw a bright orange light hovering over the area and a fiery orange dome shaped craft hovering over a nearby field.

One of the men was able to see a figure that appeared to be moving around inside the dome.

Rosales indicates that the source is UFONS #251.

Points to consider:

The source, UFNS, is the "UFO Newsclipping Service", a 20-page, monthly publication that consists of reprinted newspaper stories on UFOs and strange phenomena in all parts of the world.

Thus, the story is possibly nothing more than a brief newspaper report with none of the investigation steps necessary to check whether the low-strangeness sighting that evening was some confusion or something else.

It seems that only one of the three men distinguished a moving silhouette in the UFO; this might indicate a long distance of observation, favorable for a mistake.
