I was approaching the village on foot and noticed a bright orange ball, it appeared stationary.

I went for a long walk yesterday,it was very dark but a beautiful evening, the stars were very clear. I had been walking for approx 1 hour and approaching the village of Vernhan Dean.This is a small village with a few street lights.

I noticed a bright orange light that appeared stationary,it was partly shielded by a tree i assumed it was a light on top of a pole or mobile telephone mast. As i walked and got nearer the object, the tree no longer impaired my vision it then began to catch my eye, the colour was bright orange and glowed like a ball of flame.It had appeared stationary, however it then began to move quickly vertical and horizontal passing overhead, it was difficult to tell how high or close it was, there was not any noise associated with the object,it appeared to travel very smoothly and without effort.

I had a very powerful spotlight with me and decided to direct it at the object, to my amazement it instantly vanished.

I have always been sceptical of this type of sighting but will in the future keep a more open mind.I am sure it can easily be explained?
