I saw a very strange orange orb back in August in Leeds (uk). I didn't come forward to say anything at the time, I thought i'd see if there were any
other similar sightings first, and apparently there seems to be a few popping up recently, so I thought I'd share what I saw!
It was around 12am, I was sat outside with 3 other people and in the distance I saw what looked like an orange flare being shot into the sky. However,
when the 'flare' reached a certain point it just stopped dead and hovered in the same place for around 15 minutes (I thought it may've been one of
the flares with a parachute, but this thing was completely still in the sky, not drifting or losing altitude at all).
I got my camera and repeatedly tried to take pictures but it was just too far away for my camera to pick anything up.
The orange orb then moved very quickly to the right, much quicker than any aircraft could (approx half a mile in about 2-3 seconds at a guess) and
then stopped dead again and hovered there for approximately 20 minutes before disappearing behind clouds. Very strange sighting and i've never seen
anything move like that in the sky before.
I'm always on the lookout for another sighting now I have a bigger and better camera!
