Just over 18 months ago I saw a UFO and am now seeking a logical explanation.

It was around 5.45 am on 27 October 2011. I was on the paper round that I do twice a week, walking up a customer's path when I saw what looked like a very bright star move VERY quickly across the western sky in a diagonally across / downwards direction. It was so fast I literally jumped and gasped, felt my heart skip a beat...felt very unnerved. Although the western sky was still completely dark, behind me the sky was just beginning to brighten on the horizon, meaning it could have been an aircraft flying very high up, and the brightness was caused by the sun reflecting off of it. Basically, I'm looking for an aircraft that flies very high and very VERY fast.

Also, just want to mention, I grew up near an RAF base - I'm used to having supersonic aircraft flying around, so I know my mind isn't exaggerating the speed of this aircraft. Also, the neighbourhood where this happened is extremely quiet, no word of a lie you can hear airliners cruising overhead at thousands of feet at that time of the morning, but I heard nothing unusual.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone can make

It sounds like a meteorite.

I see similar things all the time in the night sky. They are real quick also..sometimes you only catch them in your side vision. Sometimes you see a streak for half a second or so.

Agreed. Very typical of a meteorite. Seems like we've been getting some big ones coming down lately. Perhaps we're slowly moving into a rockier part of the galaxy. Oh, well, end of the planet. It was a good run.

It had no tail though. And I've seen meteorites before, saw an absolutely incredible shower one night, and this didn't look the same. And I was looking right at it, the customers house has a side porch (which I was walking towards) so my view wasn't restricted by a big house in front of me.

Just a thought...could it have been the International Space Station ?

No, I normally keep an eye out for the ISS ( or as I call it, the Destiny Ascension - Mass Effect fans will understand) I'm a bit of a geek lol, and this was moving much faster.

I saw something last night,in the sky towards the south,to Swaziland.It was a flashing light,giving off a single white flash every 5 seconds or so,and following behind was an unblinking orange or yellow light.The whitelight flashy object looked almost like this,well this is the closest i could find.:



It was moving very fast along the distant skyline,giving off very bright white flashes,the flashes were much bigger+brighter than in this person's vid,though.It flew horizontally,and at about the heighth of a plane,but faster.And the unblinking yellow/orangey ball of light following behind.It were 2 seperate objects.I looked at it till a high hill close to us blocked my view.It must have been quite large objects,given the visibility at such a far distance from me.

ORIONIDS meteor shower peaks around late October, Was what you saw anywhere near the Orion constellation?

My best guess is either a satellite or a meteor. A satellite would look pretty much like a star, but with movement. Some aren't that fast, but some can be. A meteor is another explanation. They can vary quite a lot in size and duration. A plane seems far less likely, unless you caught a view of some supersonic one or something. Possible, but I would bet on one of the other two explanations. Good "UFO" case, though, since all that means is "unidentified flying object", and not necessarily some ET craft.

Well, you state later no tail, so go with a satellite. There are certainly plenty of them up there.

I am with you on this. My last UFO sighting was at 1am on June 10, 2009. I saw a single bright red light fly across the sky going diagonally across the normal flight path that aircraft always take. It was moving fast and made no noise at all. I watched as a couple minutes later an aircraft went across the sky much higher up, and as you said, I could hear it. It was following the typical route that they always take, probably the LA to Phoenix run. It was going the typical speed of a high airliner, about 4 times slower than the red light. I thought it was odd that something could fly that fast [4 x 300 knots air speed = 2220km/h] and not create a sonic boom.

I told myself for about a year that it could not really be an alien ship. But how else to explain it? Definitely not a comet, meteor or shooting star. It looked like it was fairly close, within only a few miles. If it was far away then it would have to have been huge.

That was my first thought. A couple of years ago (missed a recent one) I stayed up late in order to watch a meteor shower. I'd describe it exactly like the OP did.

It was pretty neat.

I even managed to get my wife to wake up at like 2AM to come stand outside with me in the cold
