UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Braintree, Essex, UK
Date: April 12 2009
Time: 8.45pm approx
Number of witnesses: 6
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Round with tail
Weather Conditions: Dry clear and dark
Description: Around 8.45pm we noticed what we thought at first was an aircraft on fire. It moved steadily across the sky from north west to south east, then veered southwards. The light was orange and 'raggedy' around the edges, like a flame. There was a 'tail' behind the light too. No noise was heard at all, and no wings of aircraft were visible in the glow. The light continued off into the far distance until it disappeared from our sight. The sighting lasted for approximately 4 minutes. The item was not moving at speed but was steady, until the change of course when it did speed up a little. Anyone else see this at all? Any comments?
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:
Hi John, I had a look at this prior to messaging and it definitely wasn't one of these ufo balloons.
