Full Description & Details

I was 7 to 8 years of age when I saw this object. It was around 5.30pm and must assume it was in the Spring or Summertime as it was still light outside. I was stood on the 4th floor balcony of the flats we lived in at the time. The object was a orange/white circular light that appeared to be the same size as the sun in the Sky. I stood staring at the object for around 10 minutes in which time there was no movement or sound from it. Suddenly it moved horizontally directly away from my position before arcing up vertically and disappearing out of sight. It moved at an incredible speed and from memory only took a couple of seconds to disappear out of sight, probably about a second moving horizontally where from my perspective it changed from the size of the Sun to the size of a golf ball before moving up vertically and shrinking until out of sight.

I remember at the time running home and telling my mother that I had just seen the Sun go to bed :)

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?


Witness Background

Company Director, Telecommunications.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I was a bit too young to have any views before the sighting. As I got older and realized the object was not the "Sun going to bed" I have to say that I believe in U.F.O's as I cannot think of any rational explanation to my sighting.
