Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Circular
Weather Conditions: Clear
Description: I spotted a strange light passing along the Dee estuary today 29th October 2009 at 20.58 from Heswall on the Wirral peninsular. It was travelling northwards at a slow speed.
I thought it might have been a helicopter, but when I went outside there was no noise at all. We do get helicopters flying overhead from time to time and they can be heard and felt quite clearly within 1 mile. This was completely silent and moved in a haphazard kind of way. Whilst travelling northwards it appeared to be travelling in a slightly erratic way and not steadily as a helicopter or plane would.
It disappeared out of sight as it headed towards the village of Irby.
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 would say it was a balloon since it was quite close and probably about the size shown in the article.
Thanks for the info.
