Message: Hi, after seeing a strange light in the sky I decided to so some research and found you.
My Girlfriend and I have seen lights similar to it before but not moving, just seeming to hang in the sky.
I am a private pilot myself and have never seen anything like it.
have seen the light today (30/5/10) at around 22:50. The light was
moving steadily across the sky in Buckhurst Hill. It looked like a
large, orange ball of fire, moved with steady and good speed and made
absolutely no noise, however was very close to us so could not have
been an aircraft or helicopter.
light was fairly large and showed no other navigation lights or
commercial identifiers of any kind. I could not gauge exactly how high
the light was but it could not have been particularly high (less than
5,000 feet in my estimation).
I'm not saying this was aliens at all but I could not identify the light object, and I used to teach aircraft recognition.
Maybe a new technology we don't know about??? Any thoughts on what this could be or have you had similar reports before?
