Location of Sighting: Taunton
Date of Sighting: 17.11.17
Witness Name: Colin Vile
Witness Statement: I looked out of my patio door and saw a strange object in the sky about a mile away. I unlocked the door and stepped outside. The object was considerably closer now and I could clearly see it. It was about the size of two hang gliders triangular in shape and very silvery and shiny. It could even have been lights, but I think it was bright reflections. I called to the wife, but as she is disabled it took her a few moments to arrive. I fumbled for my phone, but by the time the camera was active the object was going into the distance. I I took a couple of pictures, but these are far from being clear or convincing. It was completely silent. It was travelling south easterly. Now I am a recently retired college lecturer and a sceptic. The best explanation I have is that it was a deflating weather balloon, but it sure looked odd!
