Location: Royton, Oldham, Lancashire, England OL2 6LW
Time: 06.12am aprox
Number of witnesses: None
Number of objects: One
Shape of objects: Cylindrical elongated
Could your sighting be a UFO balloon/lantern?: Not applicable
Weather Conditions: Sunshine, perfect clear sky, very cold 3 degrees (shown in car )
Description: What appeared to be a streak of light ( silver/blinding shooting) vertically directly in my line of vision to a high height and instantly returning to start position ( like a reflection from a mirror danced up and down a wall) the sky was clear blue. We are on a flight path so I am used to the size shape of incoming aircraft, if it was a rocket /firework given the cold conditions it would have left a trail, if it was a aircraft it would have been unlikely to disappear from the horizon given the panoramic view, if it was a balloon the descent would have been to fast (I have no explanation to fit description).
I am a professional health and safety officer and I deal in observation, I will let others draw their conclusion from my report.
The effect caught my eye mid air, what made me pay particular attention
was the 1) the brightness 2) the vertical ascent and immediate vertical
descent and then vanished, the whole time was maybe to a count of one
second. I have never witnessed anything like this before, and not
discussed with anyone else.
I don't like mysteries I deal in facts and when I cant find a rational explanation it takes me out of my comfort zone. I must emphasise what I witnessed I can find no logical explanation hence my report, after discounting the more obvious reasons if there had been any cloud I would have suggested a plane reflection against said cloud but the sky was perfectly clear.
