Location of Sighting: Hillsborough, Sheffield, South Yorkshire
Date of Sighting: 15/11/2014
Time: Approx 21.45
Witness Name: Samantha and Pat Taylor
Witness Statement: I was stood with my mother in law on her back yard while she smoked a cigarrette and I literally just said how I love looking at the stars. Then this light, about the size of a star appeared, and went across the sky really, REALLY fast. We watched it travel from our left, all the way across the sky to our right until we couldn’t see any further. I’d say we saw it for at least 10 seconds. The speed of it was unbelievable, as fast as jets I’ve seen before if not faster. There was no noise, no flashing lights. It wasn’t a shooting star/meteor, I’ve seen loafs of those and actively follow meteor watches and this was unlike anything I’ve seen. It didn’t leave a trail and was far too fast for a plane. We watched it go right across the sky then lost it. I just can’t think of an explanation for what we saw. It’s the sheer speed that is confusing me!
