Location of Sighting: Gateshead, Tyne and Wear
Date of Sighting: 18 August 2009
Time: 3:00am to 3:40am
Witness Name: Gareth Hutton and Jane Smith
Witness Statement: Me and my girlfriend had been up late and decided to go to bed around 2:30am.I went straight to bed but my girlfriend stayed awake in bed for a while and woke me at around 3:oo am to ask what i thought of a light in the sky.I have no knowledge of astronomy but know that we live over a flight path to newcastle airport used by incomoing air traffic.The object we witnessed was no where near this flight path and seemed to be about 2 to 3 miles away over some fields.It appeared to be static for a while but then seemed to dart around a small area in a way a aircraft could not manouvre.The light was gold/yellow in colour and faded almost completely before moving at high speed upwards with instant acceleration.About 10 to 15 mins later the object reappeared about a mile further north of its previous location and hovered a while then done the same as last time.This continued a further 3 times before it dissapeared from view behind a roof top.I am certain this object was not an aircraft, lantern or star and was under the clouds so none were obscuring our view.If anyone else seen this amber/gold light please comment.

Date of Sighting: 11th May 2009
Witness Statement: on way home from Blaydon to gateshead myself and my partner saw this heading from south to north ish, it was Bright white with a louminous green trail at approx 10:15pm, we were on the A1 western bypass on the south bound carridge way just past the metro center near to the dunston slip road when we saw it.
My partner said “Ohh look a shooting star” and when i looked i said” thats way to close and big to be a shooting star”, i recon it be about the size of a small car at a hight no higher than the police helicopter when out on a job, and it was moving extreamly fast, way faster than any plane i know of that flys over the city, At first reaction i thought it was falling to the ground by the angle i saw it at but after getting home and checking on a map the direction we were traveling and location i realised it was traveling level.
I did report this to the police, whom must have thought i was compleatly mad or on somesort of narcotic substance, i was totaly shook up by this at the thought of it being a aeroplane crashing into the city, Good job it wasnt.
Anyways i emailed alan robson on metro radio who read the email out and seemed to get quite a number of responces from it, One listner said it was some sort of silent rocket, as it made no sound, Also on Facebook some one in alnwick wrote thay heard what sounded to be a aeroplane about to crash, but thay didnt see anything, this was within a few mins of myself seeing it.
Approx 11:15pm the police came for a statement and said thay had not had any more reports as of then.
