UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom
August 27th 2007 : Quinton, Birmingham, England
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Quinton, Birmingham, UK
Date: 27th August Around 9.30pm
Approach Direction: Falling from from the north to the south
Departure Direction: n/a
Witness Direction: South
Description: It was an intense bright white light, at first I thought it was a firework burning out but it was way to big to be a firework. There was a trail of smoke behind it and it seemed to land/crash about a mile or two away. There was no noise or explosion. Very strange indeed. If I had to say what I thought it was I would say someone maybe had fired a distress flare and it was burning and falling by the time I saw it. But why would anyone shoot a distress flare in a suburban area?
Color/Shape: Egg shaped, intense bright white with smoke trail
Height & Speed: I really couldn't say, About the height of a police helicopter when hovering I would guess. Maybe debris from space although nothing has been reported?
TV/Radio/Press: As far as I am aware this has not been reported
The witness also wrote that he had already had a look at the UFO Ballons site on the morning of August 28th. The object he saw was on descent and was very bright white.
