|i just read with interest some accounts of fireball type sightings.
When I was a teenager a group of us were fishing at a local pond. We packed up for the day and started to walk home over some playing fields. There was a bright fire type light hovering in the sky over some nearby woodland. I would estimate around half a mile away at most. We all saw the thing.
After around ten or fifteen minutes the thing climbed very quickly and as we carried on watching it went behind the moon. I never told anyone about this before.
My time is about right but my exact date is questionable because it was so long ago.
The reason I have posted is so that you all know that this stuff has been going on for a long time.
The other thing is that the object was silent.
((NUFORC Note: Witness fails to indicate a date and time of the sighting. He has failed to respond to two e-mail queries regarding the correct date and time. PD))
