The carft was silent and moved at a short pace, bright yellow and like a huge ball with flashing lights around it.

It was night and late at the time, There was only one craft and it was circler like a ball and bright yellow.

Around the craft were a line of flashing lights that would change colour repeatedly.

The craft was at roof height hovering at first above the ground.

When seen from a short distance there was no sound it was completly silent.

When it came very cloose to you or above you you you could hear a faint humming noise.

the crafts speed was very slow at about a walking pace.

Undernieth the ball was flat and dark with thin lines of white light (Very Bright) coming through four thin gaps, so that it looked sort of like an envelope.

At the time there was just two of us who lived in that area and we were only young at the time.

One car went past at the time and halted as it went past ( I dont know if this was due to the craft or the onlooker).
