Blow up of object

13th February 2017, 2-2.30am
North Weald, South West Essex, UK
Hey, all - I was sure I saw a UFO a while ago in the early hours of the 
morning, and posted on a forum about it, but gave up on talking
about it a bit after many people tried to insist that it was just Venus
(although I hadn't uploaded a photo).

However, after checking some of the photos on your BEAMS site, and
finding one which was pretty much identical to what I had seen
(and was taken relatively near by, in a similar time
period), I decided to send the pictures I took into you guys.

I tried to take a video to demonstrate its movement, but the quality
wasn't great.

Here is some of what I posted on the forum at the time, with a description
of what I saw: "The sighting was over South West Essex;

I saw what I originally thought was a very bright star, then thought was
a plane, before realizing it was something else. I thought it was strangely
bright for a star, especially when I saw the stars behind it and how
extremely dull they were in comparison.

I watched it a bit more, and thought I saw it flickering, so figured it must
be a plane; then, (as I sometimes do when I'm awake at night), I decided to
watch the plane fly over, but It didn't appear to be moving: At first I thought
that was because it was so far away... it just didn't appear to be moving;
then I realised it actually wasn't moving (or at least, not very much).

I scrutinised it further and judged that it was moving minutely; it almost
seemed to be moving in circles and zig-zags, hovering over the area.

I contemplated whether it could be a helicopter, but it just didn't seem

I made some notes upon first seeing it, in which I stated I could see a
'faint flashing light on the bottom, [which] appeared to be red, while
the others [appeared] to be white.'

I also noted that 'upon looking closer, I could've sworn I saw a curvature to the arrangement of the lights', but it was so far away, it was hard to tell.

I tried to get a video of the phenomenon, but my iPhone failed me - and
I had no other devices at hand; however, I managed to take some
(very grainy) pictures instead, which look quite different from how the
object looked in real life, but it's still interesting.

In the meantime, I'd love to hear if anyone has any thoughts on this, or
has seen anything similar in the same area.

It would be great to hear from anybody who has had a similar experience."

I hope this explanation is sufficient.

I will attach the photos (both enhanced and unenhanced) below.

I zoomed in as far as I could; I hope you can see the 'structured'
appearance of the object, and the fact that it does appear to be metallic.
