UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom
July 7th 2007 : Olney, Buckinghamshire, England
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Olney Buckinghamshire UK
Approach Direction: Westerly
Departure Direction: easterly
Witness Direction: North
Description: My attention was grabbed by an object quite low in the sky, no more than about 30 degrees above the horizon which appeared to be traveling over the local park. Definitely larger in appearance than a full moon when directly opposite me, it remained in view for, I would estimate, around 20 seconds before it disappeared. The object was completely silent and seemed to be at least 300 meters away, but probably no more than about a kilometer distant.
Color/Shape: The object was oval in shape and appeared to be glowing - but not all over. The orange-red glow seemed to be flickering over its top and bottom surfaces, almost like flame or a glowing coal - hence the reason I first assumed it was a balloon, which are very common round this area. It seemed to have a darker central bar bisecting it from end to end.
Height & Speed: I have roughly guesstimated that the object would have been no more than around 500 meters high and certainly no less than about 200 meters high. The object moved at a steady speed, but it was fast, like helicopter or light-aircraft speed - perhaps up to a couple of hundred miles an hour.
