Description: Travelling back from Sheffield we noticed a light in the sky this followed the car over the Snake Pass and into Failsworth where we dropped someone off.
At this point the object lowered some that is was above the house on the other side of the road.
We got another two people out of bed to witness this I was so nervous we all slept in the same house that night.
I have since been told that the Oldham Chronicle paper reported this with 300 witnesses, however I have been unable to find this article.
