UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

July 23rd 2008 : Leicester, Leicestershire, England


UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Leicester

Date: 23-7-08

Time: 11:15 pm

Number of witnesses: 1

Number of objects: 1

Shape of objects: Spherical light

Weather Conditions: Clear

Description: I was standing in my back garden and suddenly spotted a bright light moving across the sky in an unusual flight path, it passed two light aircraft and looked to be at similar altitude, there were no flashing beacons on this thing just a bright whitish light and traveling at a constant speed approx 150 mph towards Welford Rd from Saffron Lane area, I am familiar with aircraft flying over at night and they all seem to follow the same flight path however this was cutting across that path, as I have said there were no flashing beacons just a bright light with no sound moving at a constant speed, has anybody seen the same thing?

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, in response to your suggestion that I should look at the ufo balloons video, my sighting was moving horizontally at 100 - 150 mph at about 2-3000 feet in a straight line, my height and speed calculations can only be a guess. However this object had a definite purpose in its heading, it was a bright white light and not at all like that of an illuminated balloon. I see your reasons for asking this ..I see aircraft all the time "light and commercial" at night from my back garden and I am used to their flashing lights e.t.c but this was quite different just a constant bright light cutting across this well used flight path, in fact it seemed to cut across the path of a couple of light aircraft in the area at the time which looked to be slightly higher in altitude.

Thanks for your time on this matter it would be interesting to know if there were any other reports.
