Last night, I was sitting in my living room, when through the sliding glass doors I see this bright orange light. Now my first thought is chinese
lanters, as I know we have seen them before...but I pretty quickly realised it wasn't.
For one they are now banned in this area due to all the trees and fiels surrounding and the danger it poses. Secondly it wasn't moving up...it was
moving along at a steady height, and much too fast. But the kicker, it's night time, and I'm inside with the lights on...so the glass is
basically one big reflection of whats inside, but I can see this light trough it...so it's much to bright to be a chinese lantern.
The sighting happened at 11.25 at night over the town of 'Finedon' in England, heading in a North Easterly direction.
I have done a VERY VERY rough speed estimate, based on roughly where I think I saw it from, to where I think I lost sight of it, and I get a speed of
about 5.5 to 6.5 metres a second. With the sighting lasting about 45 seconds. All rough, so this is probably immensly out...
It was an orange light which sort of glowed, with a brightness almost like looking at a lightbulb in the next room over, bright, but not quite enough
to hurt your eyes... Just a single light, not wing tips like planes normally have, and much to bright and low to be a normal plane. There was
little wind so any sound should have carried; but there was not a single sound coming from this thing, it was completely silent.
Now I must say that at about 4.30 that after noon my parents had seen a Vulcan aswell as 4 aerobatic planes go past the town, so there was something
happening nearby with planes by the sounds of it.
Anybody else see anything? Know what plane it could have been? Or see this type of thing before?
Normally I'd have put this in skunkworks, but the fact there was no engine sound and my whole family came outside to see it....it's just a bit more
odd than the average strange military plane...
