Tuesday January 13 ONE WEEK on since the Louth Leader broke the news of UFO sightings above a wrecked wind turbine in Conisholme, a new eyewitness has come forward.
Rebecca Hodgson of Louth was at her horse's stables off London Road, Louth Saturday January 3 - the night before the 65 ft blade fell from the turbine in Conisholme - when her horse was spooked by a 'flashing orange ball' in the sky.
Rebecca described how her horse stopped suddenly and gazed up at the sky as a bright orange light circled above the turbines.
She said: "It was really bright and glowing, it went dimmer and then moved across horizontally".
Shocked at her horse's reaction, Rebecca called her mum and sister shouting there was a UFO in the sky.
"Animals are more susceptible to things like that. Obviously we get a lot of airplanes flying over but she never normally gets bothered by them. I instantly thought it was strange".
The story of the UFO sightings and the mystery of the falling blade took the world by storm with national newspapers and news crews the site of the wind farm.
The fallen blade has since been sent to Germany for forensic testing.
A spokesperson from the wind farm company, Ecotricity said: ""The blade has been sent to Germany for analysis and hopefully we will get the results in by the end of the week – if there is a rational answer out there, we will find it".
