Taunton (Somerset) (UK/England)

Sighted on Sunday 05. April 2009
Reported on
Shape: Sphere | Duration: 3:mins
Source:

Orange Sphere seen over Taunton somerset UK.The weather at the time of my observation was cloudy and overcast with some light rain and a slight breeze. I observed a single bright orange orb, very fast moving, it was faster than a modern jet but not as fast as a satellite. The object made no sound. The object was moving North to East just below cloud level, The proximity of this object in relation to myself would have meant that if it was an aircraft I would have been able to hear it but there was definitely no sound. The object illuminated the clouds when it travelled through them. The brightness of the object would be approximately magnitude 2. No flashing lights or strobes. This object was not an aircraft, satellite, balloon or lantern. I observed this object through my binoculars until it disappeared into the clouds. I am a keen aviation enthusiast with thirty years experience of observing aircraft. I have a responsible job and I consider myself to be a perfectly rational person. This is the first! report that I have made and I have made this report because I am absolutely convinced that what I have seen cannot be identified, although I am aware that this object or others like it have been seen in other parts of the UK.((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information.
