Cardiff-18th June 2009

Location of Sighting: Cardiff
Date of Sighting: 18/6/2009
Time: 10-10.30
Witness Name: Angel

Witness Statement: I was sat in my living area when i noticed an orange glow travelling in an easterly direction across the night sky. It was a really bright orange color and at first it looked as if it was a plane on fire. I went outside to get a closer look and observed the object travel across the skyline of Cardiff and turn upwards towards the stars. It seemed to slow down and was definitely not a plane or helicopter. It was strange and when trying to look at it as close as possible it was very difficult to focus on. My eyes felt very strange after looking at it. If anyone was looking over the skyline at this time it is impossible that they would not of seen it. If you have seen the thing we have described then please post to let us know as we are perplexed and wondering what it was!!!

  1. Hi

    My partner & I were in Wenvoe last night (27th) at about 11.00pm. We both noticed an orange light in the sky, travelling in a straight line from east to west. It wasn’t a plane or helicopter because the light was fuzzy & not as well-defined as a landing light. If I had to describe what it looked like, it was a like a lit cigarette-end floating through the sky.

    It seemed to be very high in the sky & was flickering in a non-random manner. It also seemed to be getting slightly smaller for the whole 3 or 4 minutes we were watching it until it disappeared.

    There were no street lights & the sky was perfectly dark otherwise. Haven’t reported it to the police or anyone else because I’m not entirely convinced it could have been a chinese lantern!!

  2. Right, I’m glad I have seen this website. Last night (20/7/09) at around 10pm I was sat outside in the Pentwyn area of Cardiff when across the sky maybe a thousand feet up moved a strange looking object. At first I thought it was a small hot air balloon but it was too small for that and there was no obvious basket. It may have been red/orange and had a flame underneath it.

    It’s interesting that you have mentioned a chinese lantern becase that is exactly what my friend said he thought it was. f anyone could shed any light on this I would be grateful

  3. About 5 minutes ago seen an orange light pass over, then another straight after it. It can be described as the above posts. I thought it was a plane at first but thought it was travelling too fast for that. Couldn’t heat a thing either.

    I live in the Roseworth area in Stockton-on-Tees.
