UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom
September 23rd 2007 : Ashford, Kent, England
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Ashford, Kent, UK
Date: 09/23/07 12am gmt
Approach Direction: East
Departure Direction: West
Witness Direction: South
Description: My Fiance and I were sitting in my bedroom when suddenly my Fiance told me to look out of the window. What I saw was truely unexplainable. Basically, we witnessed a large orange light, moving slightly faster than a plane. The shape looked vaguely like a huge match. The light moved in a straight line before it pretty much shrunk into a dot before finally fading after around a minutes worth of viewing.
Earlier in the evening (21:30) we had been sitting in the garden and what we thought was a star (NW position) started to fade and blink (it repeatedly did this and kept vanishing before reappearing), before getting brighter and moving in a erratic way, appearing to come close, moving away and darting around in the sky.
Is it possible we saw two UFO's last night (and no we wasn't drunk)
Color/Shape: large orange 'match stick shape' (but a lot bigger)
Height & Speed: Appeared to be much lower that a plane cruising height and it moved slightly faster than a plane
TV/Radio/Press: No, not yet
UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness to have a look at the UFO Balloons website to see if this is what might have been seen and received the following reply:
I have looked at the video and this is definitely NOT what we saw on Saturday, the object was much larger, moved quicker and was moving in a constant straight line. The shape was also shaped like a match.
