UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom
February 14th 2008 : St Helens, Merseyside, England
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: St Helens Newbold Merseyside
Date: 14 02 2009
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Round
Weather Conditions: Overcast but calm
Description: On the 14th of February at 11.15 pm, I was looking out of the patio window with my husband and we both spotted a large orange fiery object in the sky. Initially we thought it was a small plane on fire. It was difficult to tell the shape of the object but it was moving very slowly. After a couple of minutes the object appeared to decrease in size and the glow and flames disappeared. The object changed direction twice before disappearing.
TV/Radio: Reported it to St Helens Police.
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:
Had a look at the video and it is not what we saw. The object we saw was bigger and bright orange all over. The object we saw changed direction very sharply and was descending before rising again and the object went smaller and smaller before disappearing. I am myself a non believer in ufos but not sure now. I have looked around the internet last night and noticed there was another sighting in Haydock in January describing the same thing I saw. Hope this helps.
