UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Near Malham, Yorkshire Dales

Date: 06/10/2007

Time: 8.30pm

Number of witnesses: 2

Number of objects: 1

Shape of objects: Orb

Weather Conditions: completely clear skies, no wind

Description: After a day out walking in the locality my partner and I had decided to stay in the area that evening to do some star gazing as we are both quite interested in astronomy.

Because it was such a clear night and we were in the middle of nowhere with no streets lights (sodium) to distort images it was the perfect location. We were in total blackness all around us for miles and miles. Then we saw something that neither of us can explain. As I was looking at the constellations one star suddenly increased in size dramatically. It was perfectly spherical in shape and glowed a brilliant orange as it expanded, and in the centre it looked to have a spherical black dot. From where we were standing size wise it was as big as a 2 pence piece. Bearing in mind the distance of us from the star it was huge.. As quickly as it grew it then faded and was engulfed by the blackness of space. The whole incident lasted approx 10-15 seconds. I am posting this on here in the hopes that someone can explain to me what we saw (supernova??)
