It was outside the pub at about 10 past midnight. Yes, I was fairly drunk*, as was my mate who was with me at the time. We were having a smoke, and i
looked up and see a large orange sphere of light. First of all my mate thought it was a light aircraft (he's very sceptical about ufos) But when i
pointed out that a- it's not making any sound, and b- no flashing lights. His facial expression went from one that was laughing at me, to one that
looked rather troubled. It was a beautiful night last night, still as can be. and yes, I know that's not the case the higher up you get, but still,
this went right over the sky, from end to end, in about 2 minutes, in a dead straight line until it went out of sight. I'm guessing it was about 500
meters up, but to be honest, I haven't got a clue, I don't know how to calculate stuff like that, and I was pretty drunk like I said. I grabbed my
phone and tried to get some pictures and a video, but the street lights, and the spot lights on the side of the pub drowned out any chance of a decent
picture.(plus I was trying to take a picture of the night sky with the camera on a mobile phone
) I'm gutted about that, cos I know hopw important
pictures and videos are. This was in Harpenden- Hertfordhsire in the UK, anyone else from round there see anything? It was going from north west to
south east ish.
Anyway, just thought I'd share
Good day to you all.
