Orange coloured orb in sky.

Anyone who has been to Cumbria United Kingdom (Also known as The Lake District), will understand the landscape, everything is on a hill or mountain. (important to understand).

Anyway, I recently traveld there to visit my boyfriend, I spent a week there which is why I am unsure of the date. One of the nights we decided to take a night time drive through the landscape and country side. We parked up on a hills side and we were sat talking for sometime when we ended up nodding off to sleep.

I awoke and as I opened my eyes I could see straight out of the drivers window. Hovering just over the hill was a orange/yellow light. I woke boyfriend and we looked at it for sometime. The object didnt move or change in anyway. after looking at it for about 5 mins, we came to the conclusion that it must be a star, even if the colour was different slightly. We continued talking then 5 mins later, my boyfriend realised it had disapeared. None of the other stars around it had moved, we hadnt moved in the car, we were still parked up in the exact same spot.

We didnt hear any sounds that a helicopeter/plane would make. It was the exact same colour as a flame.

This would be the second UFO sighting I have reported to this sight. My first one being a couple of years ago in Doncaster.

I am unsure and so is my boyfriend what the postcode, of the road we were parked on, is.
