Witness Statement: my husband was in the garden having a cigarette when he called me outside.There was a round orange ball moving slowly across the sky towards southend.It appeared to have lines radiating from it and was glowing .There were no other lights on it such as an airplane would have and there was no noise ,it was completely quiet.Five of us witnessed it and we managed to take a photograph .I checked video footage of chinese balloons/lanterns and it was not the same.It seems that people in other areas have also seen a similar object going back a few weeks,in other parts of britain,i would be very interested to hear if anyone else has seen it on Canvey Island on the same night

  1. Hi, I live in Hawkwell, Essex and saw a glowing orange light at 12:30 am Saturday 13th June. The description given by Jan is very similar to what myself and family witnessed. The glowing orange ball travelled slowly in a circle then disappeared, it then reappeared and travelled in the same circular route but closer. It was on its second circuit that it appeared similar to a small hot air balloon or lantern, but I have not been able to find anything like it.
    The object travelled with absolute silence.

    If anyone has any information or ideas as to what this sighting could have been I would be very interested.

  2. Jan and Ruth: I am very interested in speaking with both of you further regarding your report. Please contact me at your earliest convenience. Thank you.

    I am in the USA, and for the interiem email may be the easiest way: investigators@baass.org

    Thank you. I look forward to speaking with you both.
