Full Description of event/sighting: My wife and I were travelling home towards Ecclesfield from Harley via Chapeltown. As we came off the hill at the bottom of Station road/White lane, I saw what looked like a bright orange/red ball of light travelling towards the M1. I pulled over to see if I could hear anything like a helicopter or aeroplane but there was no noise, my wife commented that it looked like a ball of fire and wondered if it was an aeroplane coming down but we would have expected to hear something. We continued on our journey over the roundabout at Chapeltown and under the railway bridge. By which time the object had changed direction and started travelling with us. We stopped again and my wife got out of the car to take a picture on her phone. The object then stopped, hovered then started moving erratically, at which point she got back in the car and we drove away. A little up the road we noticed another vehicle had stopped and a man was stood at the side of the road looking up where we had just seen the object. We then pulled over again but the object had disappeared. We didn't know who to report the sighting to, but have since heard reports of similar sightings in Lincolnshire, Lancashire and Renfrewshire.
Thank you to the witness for their sighting report.
