Location of Sighting: Hemsby, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.
Date of Sighting: 4th Sept 2010
Witness Name: Peter WA Robinson
Witness Statement: I was staying at my mobile home in Hemsby for the weekend of 4/5th Sept. The evening was calm and dry with some clouds in the sky. At approx 9pm I went out onto my veranda and immediately saw in the sky an orange ball of fire. I immediately thought it was an aircraft with an engine on fire. It was high up but just below the cloud base but it certainly gave the impression that flames were present. Hard to estimate the speed but from an estimation of the altitude similar speed to an aircraft. It was moving from the direction of the sea(east) in a westerly direction and was at an elevation of approx. 80 degrees from where I was. There was no noise being omitted and remained in sight for at least 1.5 minutes until it was just a pin point in the sky. I cannot understand what it was I was looking at but feel that it must have been seen by other people. I have good eye sight even though I am in my 60’s. I have never seen anything like this before and am extremely impressed but very puzzled.
