UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Richmond, Surrey (SW London) UK
Date: 10/31/06 2309 GMT
Approach Direction: E
Departure Direction: W
Witness Direction: N
Description: Steady bright white light observed moving swiftly east to west on constant bearing and apparently constant altitude. Object's course would have made it observable to many people in the london area. Object was silent.
Upon initial sighting I assumed a meteor, however the object did not break up or vary in its appearance, nor did it fall towards earth.
I am an airline pilot and consider myself very experienced at observing aircraft, satellites and 'shooting stars'. This object was unlike anything I have seen before.
I was stationary at the time (standing, talking on the phone), and observed the object for approx 5 seconds as it transited the sky.
Color/Shape: Steady bright white light
Height & Speed: Difficult to ascertain. If at 10,000ft: speed 1,500kts (based on aircraft transiting overhead at approx 300kts)
TV/Radio/Press: Unaware as yet
