Barnoldswick, Lancashire-24th May 2009

Location of Sighting: Barnoldswick, Lancashire
Date of Sighting: 24th May 2009
Time: 10:45 PM
Witness: JVC

Witness Statement: I was standing outside a pub when I saw a strange reddish light hovering above the sky. I though at first it was just an ordinary aircraft, but I was looking at it and it was strangely flying so low that it would be impossible that that thing was a regular aircraft. It was moving so slow that you could actually see it as a round object that has reddish light which was not blinking and it kinda have a smoke wrapped around it. People outside the pub were all shouting saying it could have been a UFO.

  2. Hi. I was looking out of my kitchen window when i noticed the same orange flame hovering over Barnoldswick. I also saw it stopping for about 10 seconds then going straight up into the sky disappearing. At first i thought it may have been a police helicopter but there was no sound of a helicopter. This was aa 10.45 but i had previously seen a similar light over the Trawden area earlier in the evening.

  3. Hi, my husband and I saw 3 of these objects with about 15 -20 mins between them flying over South Manchester. They moved slowly from east to west then went straight up in the air at quite a pace. The flame appeared to go out and then the objects plummeted downwards. I’ve never seen anything like it!
