Bright Orange Ball Over Swadlincote In South Derbyshire UK

Date: May 22, 2010
Time: Approx: 10:25 p.m.

Hi there, my husband was outside at approx: 10:25pm on Saturday, May 22nd when he called me outside. We are based at Swadlincote in South Derbyshire. My daughter and I went outside and was astonished to see a bright orange ball like flame in the sky moving very quickly. It seemed to have a tinge of red to the outside, but traveled silently. As it was moving quite quickly, it disappeared within approx 45 - 60 seconds, so was unable to take a picture, but looking on your forum at the following link: a sighting in Conisborough, Yorkshire, this is exactly what we saw on the picture posted. Can you help - what was this? Kind regards.
