Spherical Orange Ball Of Light Over Slaithwaite Huddersfield Yorkshire England United Kingdom

Date:  February 6, 2012
Time:  7:15 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of Objects: 1
Shape of Objects: Spherical, orange ball of light.
Full Description of Event/Sighting: I actually first saw this around a month ago, when I was leaving work in Birstall. It hovered in the sky, very plainly obvious. Then, as I drove home it seemed to expand and then disappear.
It then reappeared on the 6th February, again, hovering, motionless in the sky near Birstall. It was in a different part of the sky to last time. I watched it, but sadly had no recording equipment on me. As I drove home it went out of sight and out of mind.
Later that evening I went for a run to Slaithwaite and back from my house in Milnsbridge, about 3 miles each way. As I turned to begin the 3 miles run back home, I looked up and it was there, right ahead of me. As I ran, I realized I was getting closer and it wasn't too far away.
I watched it all the way as I ran, until several minutes later I physically passed directly beneath the light. It was motionless, soundless, around the size of a helicopter and no more than 200 meters from the ground.
It just hung there. It glowed orange, but the light seemed to change, flickering white/red. I watched over my shoulder as I ran home, and the minute I got home I dragged my house mate out to check that it was actually there and I wasn't mental.
She confirmed she could also see it, although by this point we were 2 miles away from it and so she couldn't vouch for it's size or locality. Very weird. Would love to know if anybody else saw it too! It was in the sky for a good few hours.

On the 10/08/2013 i saw a very similar thing, however i saw around 8 of these over huddersfield. The first 3 i saw at 9:30-10pm 3 motionless in a line. I was drving at the time and lost eye contact, i then stopped at a fuel station at new hey road and again saw this time 2 orange balls of light moving in the same direction they seemed to be quite high up. i watched them until they went out of sight. i then began driving to cross land moor where i saw 4-5 in a row different sizes mostly likely due to the distance but they were all the same distance apart roughly abit further on my journey i then saw 2 very far away moving in the same direction again until they went too far for the naked eye. Their behaviour was not like metoers, planes or helicopters. It was quite unidentifiable, at the time my camera would not pick up the light as i had a standard 2mp phone camera
