Location of Sighting: Southend on sea area
Date of Sighting: 26-5-09
Witness Name: Leon Nicholson
Witness Statement: I live in dartford and work from home. My office overlooks my garden and in the distance i can see part of the dartford bridge on clear days. On tuesday i saw a very bright light in the sky above the dartford bridge but in reality it could have been miles further away. What brought my attention to it was its bright light at 3pm in the afternoon planes dont have lights on. I got my binoculars on it and this is the description. It was silver and perfect round shaped like a tennis ball. It moved slowly left to right accross the sky so i thought it was a helicopter. As i say it was perfect round shape and was emitting a very strong light ahead of itself. The light came from the whole of the front of the object from top to bottom of it not out of the middle or just the top or bottom. I have never seen anything like it before or since and i sit here all day 8 till 5 monday to friday week in week out. This was unusual because it was perfect round, it was silver, and it emmitted this really bright light at 3pm in the middle of the afternoon in may when nothing ever has lights on in the middle of the afternoon. I have no idea what it was and cant begin to guess as i have never seen anything like it before or since.
