Description: My Sister her husband and I were in a spa pool looking at the night sky when from the South straight above us appeared a big bright white light moving North, it was about 4 time bigger then the brightest star and had no flashing lights at all, like there would be on an aeroplane, only one bright light, it travelled North and half way across our visible sky area just faded into a orange trail for a small distance then disappeared before us, it did via a slight right towards the end before disappearing. There was no sound at all with this object.
TV/Radio: Non that I know about, but I havn't seen the news for a while or listened to the radio for a while.
UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness to have a look at the UFO Balloons website [now closed] to see if this is what might have been seen and received the following reply:
No definitely not, the object we saw was moving in a straight line above us at the speed of a plane, or even faster, my sis and her husband are very much skeptics, they are both geologists, by the end of the sighting my sis agreed with me she didn't know what it was and her hubby kept saying it was a plane that turned off its lights but and a couple of nights later we saw a plane at night in the sky which looked totally different its white light was flashing and it had green and red flashing lights and was on a totally different flight path also way smaller. Not only that for a plane to be that low we would have heard it and we didn't.
There was no wavering at all like the weather balloon, and this one was very bright white.
