Location of Sighting: Derby
Date of Sighting: 21\2\2014
Witness Name: Gary Turnbull
Witness Statement: I live in derby city centre with a considerably clear unhindered view of the night sky considering light pollution. so what i saw im a sure of, stood in the back garden smoking a cigarette checking out the stars i catch a small feint orange light moving silently at incredible speed in a perfectly straight line across my “wide area view” of the sky. I watch planes and satellites on a regular basis and im am 100% sure that the speeds this object was achieving were much greater than that of any commercial aircraft or possibly even that of military machinery “also taking into account the fact that im pretty sure the military cannot fly jets at night over built up areas citys\towns etc” i may be wrong but i would love to know if anyone else were to have seen anything similar or have a justify able explanation. I have witnessed many satellites,weather balloons, meteorites in the night sky in the past so i feel that i would identify these if so.
