Location of Sighting: Whitehaven
Date of Sighting: 9/01/12
Time: 10.20 pm
Witness Name: S. Oneill
Witness Statement: At approx 10.20pm on mon 9th i decided to take my dogs ouy for a walk and just before i went back in the house i noticed a red light northwest of whitehaven, when i first saw this one red light it looked as though someone had released a chinese lantern but it then started to move fast across the sky towards the east. I stood watching ,thinking it could be a jet or maybe a sattelite but there was no engine noise and no sign of something burning up entering our atmosphere. I could not be sure on the hight of this object but it seemed quite high, i belive this was not a jet as it was moving too fast and it had only one bright red light.
