Location of Sighting: Bexhill, East Sussex
Date of Sighting: 26/04/2017
Witness Name: Jamie
Witness Statement: I had just parked my car and got out when I noticed a distant airliner. It was crystal clear against the blue sky so I continued to watch the aircraft for a few more seconds when a round object suddenly came into view – it appeared out of nowhere in fairly close proximity to the plane but above it! I had a good clear view of this object. I continued to watch the stationary round shaped object in amazement for a further 8 to 10 seconds when I noticed it suddenly begin to fade (curiously the same moment I thought of using my mobile phone to film it) until it completely disappeared in clear blue sky. I kept my eyes on the same area of sky looking for it but it had definitely disappeared. The object had a definite orange tint to it. The plane was a commercial airliner. I checked on Flightradar24 to see if I could identify the aircraft, and I have managed to get a definite id on the plane. It would be interesting to find out if anyone aboard the plane spotted the same object. I have had a life long interest in UFO’s and I am an amateur astronomer. Having spent thousands of hours looking up I am familiar with high altitude weather balloons, hot air balloons, fairground inflatable balloons, I can confidently rule all of them out.. It was no conventional aircraft. I can’t explain what this was. Very intriguing.
