UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

July 12th 2008 : Glastonbury, Somerset, England

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Glastonbury, Uk

Date: 12th July 2008

Time: 23.00

Number of witnesses: 4

Number of objects: 1

Shape of objects: spherical

Weather Conditions: fair, warm, light clouds

Description: A group were out orbing as part of the Prophet's Conference in Glastonbury. We had taken many shots of orbs, but several cameras kept playing up and batteries were draining quickly. After my 3rd set of batteries in 1 hour, I decided to stop and just enjoy the moon and stars. I was looking at the moon when I noticed an orange opaque spherical object just above and to the right of the moon. I thought I was still seeing orbs! Then it started to move steadily to the left, just above the moon. I asked if the others in our smaller group could see it and they could. It didn't change in form or brightness, just drifted on to the left and then disappeared into the clouds. It seemed to be quite high up and similar in size to the moon (relatively speaking of course).


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:

Hi John,

Thank you. I can't seem to find the link to the mass launch video on the website. I opened the Dutch news clip and the newspaper article. If you can guide me to the mass launch link I'll watch it and get back to you.

[UFOINFO Note: This is probably because the witness does not have Windows Media Player installed on the PC]

I've trawled a bit myself and the nearest thing (so far) that resembles the sphere is attached - but it's the non-bright sphere just below the 2 balls of light - which is clearly a lens/camera anomaly on the picture, but you must remember this is what we saw with our naked eyes, not through a lens. It looked perfectly spherical, not bright or flaring up, just a consistent dim glow, semi-opaque and moving steadily and horizontally on the same trajectory above the moon. There didn't appear to be anything within it at all. One of the other witnesses is John Pickering (author) who has photographed many paranormal phenomena and was leading the 'orbing' outing that night.

I hope this helps.


Ah, the last picture wouldn't open, I just got the little red cross icon - that could have been the link you mentioned.

I only have experience with orbs - I'm really only just learning myself and the sphere was my first sighting of anything unusual. Sometimes when we want something so much, it can't happen - so I'm learning to 'let go' of any outcome. What amazing times we live in...

Keep up the good work. Incidentally, I can't remember if I mentioned, but it was the ECETI webmaster that recommended your site to me.

With kind regards
