UFO Sighting Report - United Kingdom
October 31st 2009 : Ecclesfield, Sheffield, England
UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Ecclesfield, Sheffield, United Kingdom
Date: October 31 2009
Number of witnesses: 3
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Hard to define initially, but on movement it was circular.
Weather Conditions: Dry, clear, fresh
Description: I spotted what I thought was a hot air balloon, it had large flames with a red globe (the balloon), but could not see a basket, initially assumed it was because it was dark. My friend then pointed out that it could not be a balloon in the air at night. It was moving slowly (as a hot air balloon would). The flames became smaller, but this was due to the object ascending. It then shot through the air and disappeared into what appeared to be clouds in the distance. When moving it had the shape of a white circular disc with a red glow in the middle. Initially we saw it for approximately 30 seconds and then when it moved it disappeared within a matter of seconds.
TV/Radio: I tried to contact the radio and local newspaper the next day but was unsuccessful.
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 have had a look at the video and what we saw was different to that. The flames were definite and large, the fact that the object then shot off and disappeared in a matter of seconds, strengthens my belief that it was a ufo. I cannot think of any other explanation.
