Romford Essex UK A Huge Bright Orange Light
Date: March 16, 2009
Time: 8:00 p.m.
Sir, I have just read some reports of a huge bright orange light over Loughton Essex In 2005. I live In Romford Essex just a few miles away from Loughton. Last Monday evening 16 March '09 at 20.00hrs, I was looking into the cloudless sky from my living room and watching a number of planes circling above in a stacking bay waiting to land at Heathrow airport. Suddenly a huge bright orange light appeared in the sky, much lower than the stacking planes and perhaps even lower than the planes that I could also see that had just taken off from London City airport.
The orange light was shaped like an upright barrel. I ran out to my back garden with my partner and my 12 year old son. We captured the light on a run of the mill digital camera and on my sons mobile phone (video) but neither image is convincing. Travelling from the south, it then turned east virtually above my house and then seemed to increase in speed. It then just disappeared as if someone had turned of a light. Its speed was faster than any of the aircraft that we could see. I telephoned Sky News but they thought I was crazy. (surprise, surprIse). I also called London City airport to see if any of their pilots had reported the sighting but again, they thought I was mad. We know what we saw and it definitely wasn't an aeroplane, airship or a balloon. It was an experience that we will never forget. Regards.
Thank you to the witness for their sighting report.
