Multicoloured Light-Blackburn-8th September 2019

Witness Statement
I was sleeping peacefully and woke up to a sound of a helicopter. I was thinking that it will pass so the noise will go away as well, but the noise persisted, so I went to the window and checked, and it wasn’t a helicopter. It was something like a drone, but it was very noisy that it couldn’t be a drone. It had an orange flashing light, a white static light and a green and red light that changed when that thing was changing direction. The strange thing about it was that the thing kept moving in the same path for about 40 mins and then suddenly it disappeared. I took some photos but they weren’t clear. I tried to shoot a video as well but it’s not really clear, but the sound can be heard and a moving object can be seen.

Witness Statement
I went to draw my bedroom blinds when I noticed how lovely the sun set was. As I looked at the sky which was clear no clouds in sight I saw a dark object in the distance not too far from my house. It was like a dark long cigar shape. At first I thought it was a plane as I live near airbases and Blackpool airport isn’t too far, but I feel I no what a plane looks like at that distance and it wasn’t a plane. There was no lights on it thst I could see.This was still in the sky just sat there. I had a bath running and so had to run to turn it off and when I came back it was gone. Completely vanished. I was literally about 5 seconds. I’m disappointed that I didn’t just hold out to see where it went. I checked the sky over and over to see where it was but it just wasn’t there. Not sure what it was but it wasn’t any kind of plane. It was large too so I would say bigger than any plane ! Did anyone else in Preston see this?
