UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Tyldseley, Greater Manchester

Date: 1 January 2009

Time: Approx 6.00pm

Number of witnesses: 1

Number of objects: 1

Shape of objects: Round

Weather Conditions: Perfect clear sky

Description: I thought I was seeing things on New Years day in Tyldseley, Gr Manchester. It was about 6.00pm and I went out in to the garden for a cigarette and was dazing at the sky (it was a clear sky), I could see all the stars then this orange ball. I first thought it might be a plane on fire but it was not falling out of the sky. There was no noise and no smoke trails in the sky that planes make. I'm so glad I read some of these comments, because I thought I was seeing things.


UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports 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:

It was definitely not a balloon. There was no wind at all on new years day and it was travelling in the sky (approx the same speed as you would see a plane fly). I saw it for about 4-5 mins then it disappeared but there was no clouds either?
