Okay , Earlier I was walking home from the shop with my brother , when
in the sky travelling what we assesed to be east to west and at a fair speed was a glowing orange ball , first assumption was hot air balloon , but it
was moving far too fast for that , I then suggested a plane with an engine fire (this glowing was orange like fire) , just to rule out a few facts we
heard no engine noise , we heard no rotor wash as one would expect from the police helo or similar.
Now my brothers got a very smart phone and the first thing that I said was for him to film it , which he did we have a bout a minute of footage before
my brother gave up as he was embarresed at what the passing cars might think!
Unfortunately the film quality turned out pretty poor however the object is clearly visible as well as some disbeliving commentry from me and my
brother, although it appears white on film although the colour was flame orange.
So as I am new to all this I have a few questions to ask all you UFO type folks.
1. How do I upload this film , I have no clue.
2. How do I go about investigating further , there is no way that we the only ones that saw this strange occurance.
3. This put the wind up both of us we both had chills up the spine , is this normal? I guess adreneline?
Finally I thought id try and answer a few more questions as best I can about what actually occured,
We are situated in central Mansfield Nottinghamshire England, best I can describe the speed of the objact was similar if not a little faster than when
you see airliners travel accross the sky , It was very bright very orange hence my initial thought that it was a plane on fire , we watched it for
about 5 minutes and then and thia was the bit that got us thinking it seemed to climb very rapidly indeed and just vanish.
As I said we assesed it was traveling east to west altitude who knows but to high to discern any detail other than the bright orange glow.
Sorry if ive rambled a bit and ill apriciate any help ofr suggestions .
