Location of Sighting: Marshside, Southport
Date of Sighting: 25th July 2009
Time: approx 11:45 pm
Witness Name: John Ingram
Witness Statement: We had just arrived back home and about to park the car when we saw what looked like a burning yellow orb rising from behind houses which back onto the sea. It rose slowly vertical then curved over and speeded up until it disapeared very high and quickly into the sky. There was no noise at all. It definately wasn’t a plane. It reminded me of a flame from a rocket engine but there was no trail, nor sound and it seemed too slow to be a rocket. The whole thing must have lasted about 60 seconds.
