UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

February 12th 2008 : Eccleshill, Bradford, West Yorkshire, England

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Eccleshill, Bradford, UK

Date: 12/02/08

Time: 10:40pm

Number of witnesses: 2

Number of objects: 1

Shape of objects: Beach ball sized orange sphere very bright

Weather Conditions: Clearish sky, could feel no wind

Description: My wife was driving back from a friends and as we turned the corner an orange sphere moved towards and then to the left all in one motion. When it went to the left a building obscured my view so I cannot say where it went. It was about 30 ft in the air and about 50 ft away, just above the roof of a building. No noise. Both me and my wife saw it. I mentioned to a neighbour and they said they had seen a similar thing but roughly 10 years ago on the next road.


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 did look at the ufo balloons unfortunately after I had submitted the sighting so I couldn't change it. The ball I saw did not change shape and moved too fast and low to be a lantern. Me and the wife 100% agree it wasn't a lantern. I can't remember if I also mentioned in my sighting but I talked to a neighbour who has lived here for a very long time. He saw the same orange ball of light but over 10 years ago on the road next to ours but he had never told anyone until I mentioned it to him.
