I was wondering if someone could help me. About 10.00pm tonight, me and my boyfriend witnessed a strange burning object moving slowly in the sky. It
seemed fairly low for a plane, but was still high above the roof tops. It was big enough to notice, but it wasn't huge and didn't have a defined
shape. The fire then died out after about 5 minutes of watching it and then it floated off into the distance and we couldn't see it any more.
I don't particularly think it was a UFO of the extraterrestrial kind, but it completely baffled me and I wondered if anyone here has an idea what it
might have been.
At first I thought it was a hot air balloon, but the fire was on permanently, and it didn't have any defined shape and had no real colour (just
opaque, and then blackish when the fire died out.)
It can't have been a normal balloon because it would have popped, but I'm at a loss as
to what else it could have been... it's motions weren't jerky, it was just floating through the air (reminded me of how a parachute flys, but it
obviously wasn't one.
Anyone have any ideas?
