Red-Orange ball shaped light descending towards a building rooftopI was picking a friend up from a pub on Law Street in Belgrave, Leicester, England. When i reached Law St i parked up and was waiting for him to exit the pub and then it happened. This reddy-orangey coloured glowing ball came gliding past my line of sight in the night sky heading towards a high rise building. At this point i was so engrossed in this phenomenon that i did not have time to take a picture or record a video. It actually looked like it was landing on the building as it was lower than the height helicopters fly at. As it disappeared from view several other random people witnessed it too. To my amazement we all said the same thing to each other 'did you just see that?' I ran round the other side of the building to see if i could see anything on the roof but it was gone and couldn't be seen in the sky either. Strange. Very strange because if it didn't land then it would have been still heading in that direction. Thats the third time I've seen that kind of ball in Leicester, the 2nd one i actually got a video of from a distance, trust me these ain't no hoaxes, someone or something is out there...
