Time: 5:30 p.m.
Location of Sighting:
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Round.
Full Description of event/sighting: After Christmas dinner my partner and I went outside for a cigarette and the first thing we noticed was a rather large and round orange light in the sky, it was moving quickly from a easterly to a westerly direction with no noise (and no visible wing tip lights etc. which ruled out our idea of it being an aeroplane or a helicopter), but then appeared to slow and stop (we both looked at each other and agreed that it had stopped and was a bit odd)!
We have loads of things flying over here (passenger/commercial planes from London), helicopters, light aircraft and sometimes military aircraft fly over here, as we're close to the river (Coastguard), Rochester Airport (light aircraft) and Chinooks and merlins (dunno where they come from) seem to use the river as a guide, but this was nothing like we'd seen before (be interested to see if Rochester Airport noticed anything)!
Anyway, we came back in and had a laugh with the family that we'd just seen a UFO. We all looked out the window in the direction it had stopped, but nothing there.
I hadn't thought about it until my Mum phoned me up this evening and said that there was something in the local paper about someone else seeing something similar around here a few days earlier!
If anyone finds out what it was (balloon, firework, fire on board plane...or a UFO) please let me know. I'm intrigued now.
Thank you to the witness for their sighting report.
