UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom

January 3rd 2009 : West Kirby, Wirral, Merseyside, England

West Kirby Wirral Merseyside UK An Glowing Orange Light

Date: January 3, 2009
Time: 9:00 p.m.

Location of Sighting: West Kirby Wirral Merseyside.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Round.

Full Description of event/sighting: Observed an orange glowing object flying over West Kirby. The object was quite bright and had an orange haze around it. At first I thought it was a plane on fire. The object was completely silent and moving at about the same speed as an aircraft, but was not an aircraft. As we watched it stop and remain stationary for approximately two minutes. The orange glow of the object then began to dim until it disappeared completely. I believe it was traveling in an upward direction until it got so high that the light became to dim to see.

Interestingly this is the second time I have seen this object. The first time was a week previously over the same area, on this occasion it was seen by 2 people as well as myself. The object didn't, however stop so we assumed it may have been a balloon or a Chinese Lantern. However after seeing it a second time, I have pretty much ruled everything out mainly as it was completely silent and it stopped. The total duration of the sighting was approximately three minutes.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
