UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Bingley, Bradford, UK
Time: 9.30pm app.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: very large round bright orange ball/light constant glow.
Weather Conditions: Cold,dark,dry. no wind, partial cloud cover, stars could be seen through gaps.
Description: We were stood looking out of the back door when the object came into view and very quickly and silently 'flew' from an east to west direction. It travelled at quite a speed similar to a jet but with NO sound or other flashing lights. (live near LBA so flights at night are frequent and common and moments later a plane departed with lights and sound) The broken cloud was quite high, with large gaps and object flew at a steady rate and level under the cloud. It very quickly disappeared from view over towards the Wilsden, Cullingworth direction.
UFOINFO Note: Although the claimed speed of the object did not sound like a balloon/lantern 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:
We did see the lantern video, and we feel it definitely was not this we saw. It was far too large and the orange glow was very bright, we got an idea on size, as not long after an aircraft coming out off Leeds and Bradford Airport followed in a familiar flight path, eg height and direction.
