Description: I was out walking my dog tonight in the local park, Salford, just after 10pm. It was a crisp, clear night and looking up I saw what I thought was a very bright star but noticed that it was moving steadily. I couldn't discern this object's shape as it was so bright. My second thought was that it was a plane and I then searched for plane lights as the object was low, large and bright enough to warrant me seeing them clearly, but there were none. I noticed a plane much further away at a higher altitude with its lights blinking away so I was perplexed. It was right on the normal flightpath for planes coming in to land at the airport.
When I started to think and dismiss other reasonable alternatives the object, still moving at the same steady, slow pace, then changed course approximately 40 degrees from the far end of the nearby M6 motorway towards the park lake (now overhead), carried on for approximately 10 secs, all the while inexplicably but perfectly silent, stopped/slowed right down momentarily and then SHOT directly up and away into the atmosphere! I watched in awe as it disappeared. The nano second it took to cover that sheer distance left no doubt in my mind that it was not a meteor, satellite, drone, military aircraft...not close to anything I've ever seen. This occurred in an urban residential area, next to the M6 with football practice also taking place in the park in about 4 pitches tonight so I hope others have witnessed this sighting and can corroborate my report.
My partner and I are amateur astronomers and we see a lot of moving objects that are accountable for within the realm of our understanding and comprehension - this object was a UFO in the truest sense if the word. I just stood there dumbstruck for a while watching the spot where it disappeared and scanned close by for further activity, of which of course there was none... I'm left humbled, amazed and intrigued by this experience and will remember this night for the rest of my life. Lets hope that a FULL disclosure and acknowledgement from our Government occurs in that lifetime but I digress...
