Doncaster South Yorkshire, U.K. Sphere Shaped UFO (Map)

Posted: July 23, 2008

Date: July 23, 2008
Time: 10:40 p.m.

Location of Sighting: Back garden.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Sphere.

Full Description of event/sighting: Just came in from having a cigarette in the back garden and noticed a light coming in my direction from west to east. I thought it was the headlights of a plane coming in to land at Robin Hood Airport in Doncaster as we get a lot of flight traffic overhead. The object was a golden, single light. It didn't lose altitude and was moving slower than an incoming civilian aircraft. I watched it pass pretty much directly overhead and was surprised by 2 things: 1 - it was silent and 2 - normally when planes go over, the headlights appear to go out as it passes by. This light stayed the same shape and had no wing or tail lights. There were 2 normal planes in the sky ( with wing and tail lights) at the same time - albeit moving in different, unrelated directions.

I have no observational experience so I cannot give much of a guide as to speed and height - however, it was at approximately the same height that police helicopters often pass at ( if that's any help) and slower moving. If it was at roughly the same height that police helicopters fly at, then in terms of size it was much smaller - maybe 2-3 metres across maximum. I came back in the house and upstairs to my room which is front facing and watched the light until it was no longer visible. That was 22:48. Apologies if the description is vague.

Here is a jpeg I did using Google maps of the apparent flight path - the yellow circle is my house - the red dotted line is, what I believe to be the flight path.

Thank you to the witness for their sighting report.
