City: Sheffeld, England
Visibility: Partly Cloudy
Weather: Does Not Apply
Entity Type: None Description:
The object was viewed at c. 6.05 pm on by my wife and I. We were walking our dog near the junction of Folds Lane and Dalewood Road in the Beauchief district of Sheffield, England, when we saw a bright, orange illuminated object pass overhead. It appeared to be silent, and was travelling below the cloud base on a south south west to north north east heading. It wasn't possible to estimate speed but it appeared to be moving quickly at a uniform rate. It left no con-trail that we could see, although it was dark. The object passed out of our line of sight behind trees. Weather conditions: cold (c. -2 degrees centigrade), clear, relatively low wispy clouds. There was nothing specific that attracted our attention to the sky, we both seemed to notice the object at the same time. We didn't know what the object was, but in the way that it moved it didn't resemble a fixed or rotary wing aircraft. We simply observed it until it passed out of sight. My reason for reporting this sighting is that this is the second time we have observed an object fitting this description in recent weeks. The first sighting took place mid-afternoon on Christmas Day in the same area of Sheffield as my wife and I returned home after walking the dog. On this occasion we were walking on Dalewood Road, roughly east to west. The object appeared bright against the grey sky to the north west. It appeared to move slowly southward, rising slightly as it did so. It then appeared to move slowly back and forth. At this point it passed out of sight behind trees as we walked, but in the seconds that it took to regain a clear line of sight, it had disappeared completely. Weather conditions at the time were grey and overcast.

Mystery of orange lights seen in sky over Bodmin
UNEXPLAINED bright orange lights have been seen in the skies over Bodmin. Last week residents in Launceston Road were mesmerised by the big, bright lights as they stood in their gardens.
One of the witnesses, who did not want to be named, said: "My son was out in the garden and called me to see this large orange light. There was a full moon at the time and I would say it was about a quarter of the size of that.
"As we watched suddenly another one came, followed by another, we saw four in total. We must have been there for about three or four minutes. There was not a sound.
"My son texted his girlfriend and she was in the Berrycoombe area and could see them too.
"We have no idea what it could have been. It was 10pm and so quiet that it couldn't have been an aircraft. I am intrigued to know what it was and if anyone else might have seen something similar."
The witness said the lights travelled across Bodmin Moor towards Liskeard, and said: "I was not sacred, just amazed and I really would like an explanation to what it was. I wish I had got my camera, but at the time I just wanted to watch. If I had gone inside I would have missed it."
No reports were made to the police or to Airwatch, the Neighbourhood Watch of the skies.
