UFOINFO Sighting Form Report
Location: Stockton Teesside
Date: Nov 1 2009
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Circular globe
Weather Conditions: Windy westerly
Description: A bright orange light traveling from the SSE to NNE about the same flight path for durham tees valley airport. But traveling away from said airport. (wrong direction for an aircraft taking off as aircraft would have been heading of 230deg) this was at an alt of about 20,000 speed about that of a fast jet. 2nd witness watch as it had left my view. it cont NNE until it reached about the coast then turned east and went out of view of second witness. They was no engine noise no other lights to identify as an aircraft ( I see plenty being on the flight path) I don't think its ET as to many sightings of same object all over NE. But would be interested if anyone could explain what this is.
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:
What I saw could not have been a Balloon/chinese lantern. they was a westerly wind blowing. This object came from the SSE heading NNE it only turned at about the coast and Headed East. Also the size of the object from the approx hight i would say it was about the size of an airbus or 737. As I stated moving at about the same speed as a fast jet. I did manage a picture from my phone but it was useless even at max blow up on the computer its only a blob of light. I'll send you a google map of the approx flight path. If you check out airports in the area you will notice it has passed prob within 5-10 miles of Leaming airbase and close to Durham Tees Valley. It's got me confused I know most aircraft that fly around this area, I have never seen anything like this.
Hi, I'd like to share a Google Maps link with you.
