Orange Ball Of Light Seen From Bootle UK

Date: October 9, 2010
Time: Approx: 7:30 p.m.

Hello, I just read your article re the bright orange light around Liverpool on 30th May. At around 7:50pm tonight (9/10/10), I was in my back yard in my house in Bootle when I saw a orange ball of light fly past in the sky. It was an orange ball, about 3 times bigger than a plane approximately although it is hard to guess the exact size.

It was very very bright and went faster than a plane, it made no noise and was flying almost perfectly horizontally. I am not familiar with the Liverpool area as I am not originally from here, but it looked to be near the Netherton/Litherland area I think. Defiantly not a Chinese lantern as it was too bright, too fast, too straight as lanterns wobble about. This was at a very fast and pacey speed and there was no flame in the middle of it like a Chinese lantern. It was almost perfectly spherical too.

Please feel free to contact me back if you want. Thanks.
