Location: Manchester (UK/England),
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 minutes
A fireball like object slowly moving across the sky. Twinkling colours around the edge. Then disapeared high up in the sky.

On the 4th of April 2009 at 00:25hrs, I was sat in my front room with the curtains open watching TV. When I noticed a bright light appear in the sky. It was flying towards my house. It was unlike any aircraft I have seen.

The area where we live is on a flight path where planes turn ready for landing. This flying object was not on the usual flight path; in fact it was flying in the opposite direction.

It was like a ball of fire moving slowly across the sky. It seem to hover for a moment over the top of my house and at that point it was twinkling colours around the edge of the fireball.It was as high as a plane flying with not a sound or any noise at all. Then it disappeared high up into the sky as if something had zapped or sucked it out of the sky. Both and my husband and I have never seen anything quite like this before.
