Location: Linford, Stanford-le-Hope, Essex
Date: August 16 2009
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Long rectangle
Weather Conditions: Clear night sky
Description: I had just left my flat to go down to my local recreational park to take some photographs of the night sky (I'm a keen amateur photographer), so I was walking along the street, looking up at the clear night sky, when something just smoothly and not really that fast just glided over my head. The first thing I noticed was the shape, which was a very defined and long rectangle, it was flying about the height of a pylon, and the strangest thing at the time was that it emitted no lights or sound whatsoever. There was just a orangy brownish glow which, I think was light reflecting off it from the ground, maybe from street lamps?. But as it glided along, the street lamps where getting in my line of sight, and I kept on losing my night vision so it just disappeared after about 30-45 seconds.
I know that all what I have just described doesn't sound like much, and it is very hard to actually describe what I saw, but I know what it wasn't, if that makes sense?. I do know that I haven't seen anything like it before, and I'm annoyed with myself for not taking a photo of it, but it takes a little while setting up, by which time it had gone.
