UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Whitchurch, Bristol

Date: 16/10/08

Time: 8.35pm approx

Number of witnesses: One

Number of objects: One

Shape of objects: Orb shaped

Weather Conditions: Dry, few scattered clouds

Description: I had let my dog out into the back garden when I saw a bright orange orb-like shape travelling north eastwards. I thought it was a plane that was banking around to approach Bristol Airport. But on watching, noticed that it was silent and had no flashing lights. I ran upstairs to get a better view out of the window and it was still travelling in the same direction (away from Airport). It then just seemed to disappear. It was travelling quite fast and was fairly low (like a plane on approach). Not sure if it was a lantern balloon?. It definately was not driftng and stayed on a straight course. I waited to see if any more flew across to actually see if it was balloons, but saw no more.

TV/Radio: No, not reported elsewhere.
