Right, I just managed to get rid of this thread first time around which was annoying as I'd wrote loads so sorry if this is rubbish. I'm also not
claiming this to be alien in anyway, but it was, to me, a UFO.
Newcastle-upon-Tyne (or thereabouts), UK
So I'm sitting, watching Ashes to Ashes (on replay just incase thats weird), normal Saturday night, and my mam suddenly goes "What the f**k is
that?!" and I jump up, as you do, and run to where she's looking out the window and theres this massive orangy-red ball in the sky travelling west
to east really, and I mean really quickly! And, as you do, I ran to the back to see what it is and where it's going. And you know, forgot my
phone. So when I go back into the living room I'm still reeling from it, like, I've just seen an unidentified flying object, not on a flight path,
really quick, streak across the sky. So yeah, it also seemed to cast a reflection from the big orange light backwards so that suggests it's metallic
and sort of... long. But I'm no expert on this.
Anyway yeah, we went back to the living room and she goes again "Look! Here's another one!" And true to form, couple of seconds behind, another,
slightly more orange, slightly smaller orb is streaking across the sky, and once again I run out to the back to watch it going in my head Omg! What
the hell! It's a UFO! And I'M seeing it! So yeah, this one seemed to head of on a slightly different tragectory (if thats the right word) and ended
up slightly more south than the first which disappeared behind a house, and also seemed to flicker slightly. And my mam goes "get your phone!" So
yeah, I have a really rubbish clip of this light which looks tiny in the sky and really unimpressive compared to what we were watching which I will
try to upload once this is posted. Just to prove I was looking at something.
Anyway, thats garbled coz I'm completely... I dunno the word? Not ecstatic, slightly scared and everything else so to sum up:
2 orb-like lights. Both crafts were made up of one big light each, the first was slightly more red, and slightly brighter/bigger than the second,
suggesting either closer to us or bigger.
I also heard what sounded like engine noise (VERY faint) in both cases, which is also weird because I'm sure that all UK airspace is still grounded,
so why are they flying?
Both were headed sort of in the same direction, but not following the exact same flightpath, seconds after each other. Both ended up disappearing
behind houses and I lost them.
So, did anyone else see these crafts, or has anyone got any idea what they could have been/why they are flying when we're supposed to be grounded?
I'll get to uploading the video now, but it's really not great, so apologies for that, and I'll also keep a lookout incase any more come across,
but I'm sort of assuming that since they haven't by now, they wont.
Thanks in advance!
