Marshside, Southport-25th July 2009

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.

  1. I saw the exact same thing that night. First i thought it was a burning plane and then it went upwards and disappeared and left no trail.

  2. They are chinese Lanterns or (sky lights) manufactured in china or tiawan – have a look on ebay for your answer – cheap at 10 for £12 – this is just the time of year that people send them up

  3. my husband and i saw a huge orange ufo at 10.20. sat 8th aug 2009. flying from east to west. the sky was completely clear and full of stars. we were looking at planes taking off and landing at liverpool from a friends back garden when it just flew over. AMAZING is all we can say. alot of our friends have seen this alot in our area lately.
