Duration:20 seconds
Very bright light falling from the sky then stopping in mid air and shooting off into the horizon

On Saturday night we witnessed a very bright orange light fall from the sky out of my front window in Hackney London United Kingdom, we watched it as it stopped in mid air for about 3 seconds then as we looked on the light got smaller and smaller very quickly as if it was flying away from us, in 5 seconds we could no longer see it, whatever it was it didnt make a sound and at these speeds. I have never seen anything move so fast in my life, I dont understand what else it could be - nothing moves this fast. It was pitch black as it was just past mid night and it was over a residential area!!
