Large Orange Light Over Banbury Oxfordshire UK

Date: March 23, 2011
Time: Approx: 8:30 p.m.

Hi, I saw something similar on Wednesday 23-03-2011 at about 08:30 p.m., over Banbury, Oxfordshire UK.

I went out of our back door for a cigarette and saw an orange light traveling almost due west, it was large enough to be the size of the police helicopter, but made no noise. No other lights flashing or otherwise were seen from the object, the wind was light and in a different direction, the sky was very clear, no mist or cloud.

The thing which made me think it was unusual was, it’s flight path, although it was a large/bright object its attitude remained high in the sky, suggesting it was flying at high altitude and it disappeared to an orange point high in the sky, several minutes later I saw another object, exactly the same description and flight path followed by a third minutes later.

All I can say is they were not like anything I have seen before, we see plenty of aircraft in and out of East Midlands airport together with the police helicopter hovering about over the M40 and this was very unusual. I live in Banbury Oxfordshire and would love find out if anyone else saw the same objects or has an explanation.

If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential. website:
