Location of Sighting: Taunton, Somerset
Date of Sighting: 2nd February 2009
Witness: Janet Marshall
Witness Statement: As we were driving home from Glastonbury, just approaching the Priorswood industrial estate saw a very large red ball in the sky, with 2 small orange lights underneath it.We pulled into a layby and watched as a It glided slowly acroos the sky for aprox’ 5 minutes before a large flame fell from it and it shot off across the Taunton sky. The Police were notified as we thought it might be a plane in trouble but as we spoke to them we realised that it couldn’t be. A couple of police officers were sent to talk to us (probably to make sure we weren’t drunk) and began to take a statement. Just as we were giving them all this information, another light appeared and then dissappeared quite quickly. The officer taking the statement witnessed it too. We all stood there puzzled as to what this could be. Any ideas would be great???
