Hi John, two of my friends and I have just seen what we can only assume to be a UFO, it came from the N/W for about 3 mins at about 7:35 on the 08-10-09 and it was a very patchy cloud cover night and there was little light / dusk / . It was bright orange like fire and about the size of a small aircraft at about a miles distance from us.
There was no sound at any time and you just no when somethings not the norm, because we live under a flight path from Newcastle / Durham Tees Valley and long haul flights too, and at its closest we thought it would be about 1 mile because of a cloud that it passed under just before it stopped for 5 seconds or so when it then turned west and climbed vigorously and at extreme speed which made it go out of sight in no more that 6 seconds and judging its size and how close it was and the amount of light it gave of, for it to go from sight in that little time it must of been going some.
There was no planes in view at the time of the sighting but just 1 minute after it had gone and we were talking a fighter passed over head from N/W to S/E [ on the same flight path as it was first seen before it left straight up ] and the fighter was really moving as well, none of us have ever seen a fighter that high and at that speed and going in that direction straight toward Redcar we dont no what to make of that maybe nothing.
Thanks and I hope we were not the only ones too see this UFO tonight.
