Shropham Norfolk (UK/England)

Sighted on Wednesday 31. July 2002

Shape: Light | Duration: 15 minutes
Source:

Bright yellow/orange light hovering low in the sky that then re-appeared in another area of the sky at rapid speed.I had been out for the evening with a business colleague. We were picked up at 23:20pm by the taxi we had booked earlier. About 1/4 mile from arriving home i spotted a bright orange/yellow light hovering low in front of us, just above tree height and rooftop height. The bright light disappeared and reappeared in another section of the sky at rapid speed. The speed at which the object travelled was unatural.No engine noise was heard even though the object was reasonably close The taxi driver then indicated that he was glad we had spotted this as he had seen the same object when coming to pick us up. My business coleague was equally bewildered by the light and its rapid motion.The taxi driver decided to follow the light, this we did wiith no success as the light dissapeared rapidly.We finally arrived at home to see the glowing light re-appear and move off rapidly one more time.Not long after this the sound of a helicopter was heard nearby.This has only been reported now, following a second sighting on 23-08-02 where photographic evidence was obtained (see seperate report). After this second sighting i felt i should make the effort to report both sightings.
