I saw an orange orb moving rather erratically a couple of years ago in Chelmsford (Essex, UK). At first I thought it was a star (it was around 1am)
but after watching it for approximately an hour and ruling out the movement being caused by me (ie head shaking, eyes playing tricks), it had to be
something else. The movement was like zig-zag-ing and it certainly appeared to be very high up, and the rate it moved it appeared to be moving quite
fast, but to be fair, without any reference its hard to know how high up and how fast it was going.
At the time I only had a camera on my phone (rizr z8) and I was unable to take any pictures of it, I could barely make out my hand 3 foot in front of
the camera. I tried using some binoculars with the camera but had no joy, more so because i couldnt keep track of the "orb" so gave up. In all
fairness though, even if i had captured it on my camera or any other kind of device people would still claim it was something else lol.
Anyway, I done some research and found a few reports online about other peoples sightings of orange orbs. I also spoke to my mother about what I saw
and she mentioned that people had called in to one of the local radio stations about what they had seen, and these sightings were claimed to be of
either a helicopter from a local military base, or a plane from Stansted airport. Im not sure whom claimed the sightings were of helicopters/planes,
but if these people were reporting the same thing I saw, there is no way it was a helicopter/plane, I say this as 1) it was very high up (I could only
make out an orange sphere through the binoculars, there was no flashing of lights) 2) the speed at which this thing was moving defied the laws of
physics, at least as I know them (especially if a human was operating the device, seeing as it was zig zag-ing).
I have no idea what exactly it is that I saw and I have pondered the idea for many hours. If it were man made then by god how far man has come (and
how little the public know of our achievements); if it were natural, by god man knows next to nothing of our own neighborhood; if it were
extraterrestrial, well, BY GOD lol
Anyway, heres a few bits similar to what I saw in the same area
more reports on the ministry of defenses website
btw there is NO WAY it was one of these lol www.ufoballoons.co.uk...
