Location of Sighting: Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, UK
Date of Sighting: 13/02/2010
Witness Name: Jessica
Witness Statement: I was driving along a road just a few yards from my house when a large fire ball caught my eye in the sky. It looked the size of a traffic light. It was moving at the same constant speed and around the same height as a short haul aeroplane. Both myself and my passenger were very startled by this sighting so pulled the car over and stopped for a better look. It was very bright and looked just like a large ball of fire very high up. There was only one object. I have never witnessed anything like this before. Having seen Chinese lanterns before I am confident this was something very different.
