Witness Statement
I was having a cigarette at my open 1st floor bedroom window , I looked to my left and upwards now in that direction you see everytime you look in that direction planes that are either coming into land or have just taken off and are climbing out now at dusk until light the following morning you see the take off lights ie big bright beams at the front off the planes until they reach a certain height then they turn them off so I’m really used to the flight paths out off the airport also the holding route of incoming planes now I have seen this object which is a big white/orange light once before a few nights ago now that time I spotted it I was intrigued because like I said I know flight paths of big jets but this object I saw was a lot brighter than even the flood lights on the front of the big jets the first time as in this time I can compare it to jets because on both occasions there were jets climbing out of the airport with there flood lights on and I also ruled out the helicopters ie rescue and police choppers I have seen these on numerous occasions in daylight and at night time and it was totally different on every plane /helicopter you have lights strobbing at the wing tips as well as at the tails now this object didn’t have any there was just a solid spherical strong whiteish/orangish light so the times I saw it it moved a little bit for a couple of seconds not far but there was a little movement but mainly it was still it was definitely on both occasions below the cloud base you could see it each time it was there for about 6 or 7 mins and then on both occasions it slowly faded out like I have said I’m used to the routes taken in and out by the airports planes I hope someone else saw it I can’t imagine I was the only person to see it it’s in such a commercial and residential area someone else must have seen it
