  1. Autumn 2009 – saw orange glowing object moving slowly from direction of southampton water SW to NE – saw object clearly from flat window (live on 4th Floor). Another witness initially drew my attention to the object and we both identified orange and yellow lights (not chinese lantern) – quite fasinated by object – no idea what it was.

  2. I was looking out of the window of a building in St Marys district of Southampton and the object appeared from the South West of the building, traversing in a south westerly to north easterly direction. At first it appeared to be some sort of plane on fire; it had what appeared to be two fires underneath it but as it came closer to me the craft had a circular body which was dark, with what I identified to be ridging around the bottom of the craft. In the middle of the bottom of the craft appeared to be what I can only describe as the propulsion mechanism, seemingly two bright burning orangey red lights, which could be mistaken by myself for two fires.

    The craft could not have been a hot air balloon because it moved a great deal faster than a hot air balloon. I would say that it had come from the direction of the Solent and was moving in a North Easterly direction towards Eastleigh. I would estimate the speed of it to be between 200-300 miles per hour. It was not like any identifiable craft which I had ever seen. In addition, the propulsion components appeared to be two bright orangey red fires sealed within a protruding dome at the bottom of the craft.
