Location of Sighting: Gateshead, Tyne and Wear
Date of Sighting: 18 August 2009
Time: 3:00am to 3:40am
Witness Name: Gareth Hutton and Jane Smith
Witness Statement: Me and my girlfriend had been up late and decided to go to bed around 2:30am.I went straight to bed but my girlfriend stayed awake in bed for a while and woke me at around 3:oo am to ask what i thought of a light in the sky.I have no knowledge of astronomy but know that we live over a flight path to newcastle airport used by incomoing air traffic.The object we witnessed was no where near this flight path and seemed to be about 2 to 3 miles away over some fields.It appeared to be static for a while but then seemed to dart around a small area in a way a aircraft could not manouvre.The light was gold/yellow in colour and faded almost completely before moving at high speed upwards with instant acceleration.About 10 to 15 mins later the object reappeared about a mile further north of its previous location and hovered a while then done the same as last time.This continued a further 3 times before it dissapeared from view behind a roof top.I am certain this object was not an aircraft, lantern or star and was under the clouds so none were obscuring our view.If anyone else seen this amber/gold light please comment.
