Kendal, Cumbria UK Witnesses Describe A Cylinder Shaped Object With Tail

Date: September 22, 2008
Time: 9:50 p.m.

Location of Sighting: Above Hallgarth Estate.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Circle with tail like a comet but much brighter.

Full Description of event/sighting: I was sitting watching TV when I saw a light through the patio door which caught my attention. It lit up the back garden and it's reflection shined on the houses opposite me and lit up the trampoline in the back garden. I glimpsed left and up and caught an extremely bright cylinder shaped object with a tail like a comet following it. It was only about 200 metres above the houses and it was travelling faster than anything I have ever seen before and was accelerating, but it was so quick and for such a mili second, that by the time I stood up and ran outside hoping to catch the back of it flying off, it was gone and the sky was completely silent.

It was so quick and silent that I thought it was my imagination. If not for my step-son coming in about 10 seconds later as he was outside while the UFO passed and described the exact same event that I had just seen. He said that he watched it for about ten seconds and it was skipping across the sky line, quite slowly and even had time to get out his mobile phone to film it, but when he pointed his camera at it, the UFO shoots off and he ducked down behind the houses out of view. For him this is what brought it into my viewing. It was a completely clear night last night without a cloud in sight and every star in the sky was visible, therefore it could not have been anything else. My son, before coming in even called one of his friends and said I have just seen a shooting star right above the houses?

Thank you to the witness for the report.
