Description: This picture was taken on a sony ericsson W350a phone camera using night mode. The light was white in the center and reddish and orange around the edges traveling in a South East to North East direction. The edge glow and color appeared constant while the white center lights luminosity fluctuated between dim and bright. Before the object went out of sight its color became more red. I ran to try get it back into view but it had gone.

I've had multiple sightings of these orange objects in Kilkenny since 2008, 7 of which where in the Loughboy area and I can say with confidence that they are not ufo balloons because I was lucky enough to observe one that was less than 20 feet from me. The object was elliptical in shape, dull red at its centre with an orange glow surrounding it. Its surface detail looked something like semi-transparent molten lava with a dark patchy crust over it.

Anyway, thanks again John for getting in contact and providing such a great site, take care.
