Number of witnesses: 3
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Round
Weather Conditions: Clear
Description: Traveling back from Leyburn after dropping off a friend we saw a very bright orange light in the sky over the fields. It was much larger than a plane and too big to be a star. It remained in the sky for a couple of minutes dipping behind clouds. It seemed to get bigger but then disappeared out of sight. My teenage son, husband and myself could not give an answer as to what it was. This is the second time I have seen the same thing in the past months. When the Mail reported a lot of sightings all over the country me and my other son saw what I thought was a firework in the southern sky over the houses but it travelled towards the west over a period of about two minutes then disappeared. It stayed the same size and shape. Unbelieving I went on Facebook and asked if anyone else had seen it and one friend had.
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:
I had looked at the video you mention and I don't think what I saw were lanterns. They were to big and solid to be paper.
