UFO SIGHTING REPORT

Just wondered if there was any activity noted for a shooting star on
September 23 at 21:23 GMT. over Durham, County Durham, England. as I saw a
"star""meteor" something with mass, move across the sky at some speed from a
east north-east to west south-west direction. it did not burn out like other
shooting stars I have seen and did not appear to have a tail. it changed
direction briefly before disappearing. it was too fast for a satellite and
the aeroplanes usually don't fly in that direction to our airports. it had
no flashing lights that a helicopter has and appeared to be too high. I have
also seen satellites before that appear to weave and it was not one. I have
also seen laser shows and it definitely was not one of them. I feel a bit of
an idiot saying it was an U.F.O but to me it is unidentified. what it was I
don't know but would appreciate any feedback into what it was. not sure how
to get in contact with someone who could say what is was. hope to hear from
someone and hope I am not the only one who saw it.
since I sent this e-mail to a few people I have found out that someone else
saw the same thing. they confirmed the time and direction. I know that there
could have been a misinterpretation of the curve that I thought it made due
to the 3-d environment.
I am a housewife with two small children. I have 13 G.C.S.Es at C or above.
I look up at the stars at night to relax and collect my thoughts for the
next day. so I was looking at the sky when the object came into view.
It was not as bright as the moon but star brightness. there appeared to be
no colour but gave the illusion of matter. there were not strange smells or
it disappeared suddenly.
It was allot smaller than the moon. it is difficult to describe at that
distance. slightly smaller than a football.
it was not recorded.
mr e. G. Bowburn Durham.
no physical effects noted.
time passed normally.
no other unusual experiences before.
the sky was clear apart from this one band of cloud that was coming in to
view heading towards me. a bird tweeted twice which I thought was odd then
the object appeared.
it was clear. tiny bit of cloud cover but just this band. it was mild and
dry. there was a breeze and I could see the stars.
I hope I have answered most of the questionnaire questions ok.
