UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

June 8th 2008 : Hinckley, Leicestershire, England

Hinckley Leicestershire, UK Stationary Objects (Pictures)

Date: June 8, 2008
Time: Daytime sighting.

Hi Brian, I hope you can help? I spotted what appeared to be something rather odd in the sky on June 8th 2008. It was the clearest brightest day this year and not a breath of wind in the air. I noticed lots of planes over head and to the east of me looking straight out. I saw the vapour trails so I knew that is what they were. However I saw something in the sky not to high up and this object stood out from the others because it remained stationary in the sky. At first I dismissed it as a child's helium balloon perhaps it had broke away from the child but then I thought about it and as it wasn't moving at all I was a little puzzled so I grabbed some binoculars and my camera.

I looked through the binoculars from my bedroom window as I had a clear view. This object was tubular in appearance and far too big to be a helium balloon. There was no string attached. I noticed it was red and white but it appeared to be spinning around clockwise whilst remaining stationary and also changing colour from Red to White. I grabbed my camera and snapped some shots but I can't make anything out on them and I don't know if you have any way of enhancing them??

The object remained stationary from the time I noticed it anyway for about 10 minutes before moving towards the east and disappearing from view. Please can you help? I would like a rational explanation as to what this could have been. Thanks.
