Hey there ... well, I'm certainly no expert and I have no idea what the orb shape is. but it is interesting and I'm sure some will come forward to suggest it's a 'chinese lantern' damn skies seem to be full of the things if all the naysayers are correct ... there'll be 'lantern jams' before we know it.
I assume the 2nd pic looks like that because you moved the camera as you clicked ? If not then that makes it even more interesting because that doesn't look lanternesque at all.
I hope someone with more knowledge than me comes forward with better suggestions. Thank's for sharing.

chinese lanterns - in the sky, during a period of new year celebration - no way!!!! surely the obvious answer has to be some intergalatic or dimensional craft which would need more energy than the sun can output to twist the fabric of time and space in order to get here - and i mean why would aliens if great technology and knowledge want to go anywhere else in the entire multiverse when they can go to shropshire!!??!

Early New Years Day me and the neighbours were watching some lanterns being set off on the skyline. One came overhead and the rest set off in a slightly different directions.
We knew they were lanterns because someone knew the people who were setting them off, but also it was New Year, just after midnight (go figure).
I have to say that it was difficult to gauge how high or big they were and they just presented as distant orbs. But they did look like some of these youtube videos presented as UFOs. I think people are just desperate to believe in something which spices up our mundane lives.
