Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Orangy / yellow light
Weather Conditions: Clear & calm
Description: I kid you not . . . . . . . . . .
Last night I was stood at the back door having a fag watching the fireworks and minding me own business when I saw, in the night sky, a strange bright orangy / yellow, even though it was miles away, LIGHT. It was NOT an aeroplane's lights, trust me, I live under one of the final approaches to Manchester Airport. Travelling west to east, northern of Preston, possibly alot further than that. Was bright for ages then went dull rather too quickly. I've got an 'O' level in Physics and it didn't do what I'd expect for a 'normal' aircraft to do :dontknow:
Anyone else see it???
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:
Hiya John, I can confirm it wasn't a lantern or a UFO balloon. Thought long and hard before posting not only with yourselves but on the Mk1 Golf Owners Club forum. I live under one of the flight paths into Manchester and have seen thousands of aircraft at night and initially that is what I thought it was. However, the light travelled in a way that meant it wasn't any 'normal' aircraft. Neither am I saying it was extra-terrestrial but it was like nothing I've seen before.
I know there have been similar sightings that night in the north west as I've checked out the UK UFO sights website as well.
