Location of Sighting: New Barnet, North London
Date of Sighting: 30/10/2010
Witness Name: Gary Phillips
Witness Statement: I was outside my house with a group of friends on saturday night when I saw an orange light in the sky. It was big and bright, about 1000-2000 feet up and moving silently, faster than a commercial jet and in a straight line, heading approximately North. We watched it for 2 minutes before it disappeared. I pulled out my binoculars to get a good look and having previously worked in aerospace for 9 years I know enough to confirm it wasn’t an aircraft and saw enough to confirm it wasn’t a chinese lantern – I’ve seen them before and I know what they look like. There was no wind to speak of and if there was it wouldn’t have been coming from the South. I think this was the real deal.
