It was a dark winter's night in September of 2010. The nights sky was quite clear compared to normal, revealing hundreds of stars and even a full moon. I had arranged to meet up with my friend a few minutes away from where I live. We were going to hang out in my house like we usually did; however, this time would be different. So, as planned, I grabbed my keys, put on my parka and off I went. When I arrived at the bus stop (where we had planned to meet), I sat down on the bench and gazed up at the nights sky, which is something I often do no matter where I am.
As I was busy gazing, I noticed a shining moving light. Now my first thought was that it was a plane, until I realised it was traveling far too slow for any kind of plane. So I moved on to the conclusion that it was a helicopter, yet it wasn't making any type of sound. In fact, the only sound that I could hear was that of the odd car that drove by occasionally. It was then brought to my attention that whatever this thing was, it was glowing a bright orange with a sort of yellow look to it. I'm not sure why I thought this, but for a second I thought it might be a helicopter that had some how caught fire?
By now I had been waiting for at least 15 minutes. Still my eyes were locked on what couldn't be anything else apart from a UFO? I watched as it indecisively moved from one place to another. It then occurred to me to capture it on my cell phone; however, as I switched to video camera it wouldn't pick this thing up. So, getting very frustrated, I decided to take a picture. Once I had done this and viewed the image, it just looked like a giant orange ball. Not to mention the image was blurry as it was.
Eventually it disappeared; I mean it actually just vanished. It was at that point the thought crossed my mind that maybe it was a Chinese lantern; however, this object was far too big to be a lantern. And then how could it have been moving so freely in the night's sky?
Not long after it vanished, my friend arrived on the bus, and as we were walking back towards my house, I decided to tell him all about it. After explaining, he just looked at me as if I was crazy.
If anyone else has had a similar sighting to this, please tell me in the comments below. I must make clear that I see what I see; not what I want to see. Thank you.
