Location: Telford (UK/England),
Shape: Light
Duration: 10 mins
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
A light that moved strangely at the same speed and height, then desended downwards and disappeared

Good evening,I live in Telford, Shropshire. Tonight (29/7/2008) I was going to close my gate that surrounds my property. Whist doing so I happened to see my next door neighbours outside the gate. Wondering what was wrong I approached them and asked the question, they told me to watch a strange object in the sky and pointed to it.

They have previously told me that they have seen strange lights over the past week or so because the spend a lot of evenings sat outside at night time, plus the area we live in, we can see the surrounding area for quite a few miles as we live close to the top of a hill and the area is quite flat around us.

They said they had been watching this light from (then pointed north west to south south east) as I arrived the light had slowed down and seemed to drop slowly downwards, as it descended the light faded till it disappeared completely.

The light could only be described as brighter than a star, white, constant (not flashing) there was no noise from it, the sky was clear as we could see other starís behind it, it was bright in the dark night sky and it moved in a straight line at a constant speed, then it reduced in brightness at the same speed it fell.

This all happened in approx 10mins at 22.10approx, it seemed to disappear over the Cannock/Walsall area. It wasnít a plane or helicopter because I have been interested in aviation from a young child, and know the characteristics of them.

Thank you for taking the time to read this
