Hi,
Found this site whilst googling.
I went into the garden to let my dogs out at roughly nearly 9pm .I saw a big burning orange object in the sky . It was on Object .It looked quite large , i thought a first it was maybe a huge hot air balloon on fire - its the only way i can describe it . It was bright orange, the colour of a Halloween pumpkin.Yet not the shape of a hot air ballon . It looked like it was on fire ??? I shouted my husband to come and look as i have never seen anything like it .My husband never answered so i ran in the house to get him .
When i came back out it was going up right up into the clouds .I gather from this it was moving fast.
Now i live in teesside and we are are on the flight path of Teesside ( durham tees valley airport ) so i cannot imagine a hot air ballon being in the sky .
It was 100% NOT an aircraft , helicopter nor a light .It moved Horizontal across then went up into the clouds .Today is 17thOctober.Im curious as to what it was ??
Any ideas .

Hi Fountainpen, welcome to the site, Not sure, my first suggestion is keep an eye on the local papers or Local news, some sightings get publised on there. If there has been other witnesses hey may well have reported them to the press. I know our local paper is always publishing UFO stories.

If you do get a link put it one here.

Welcome to the site.

Interesting sighting you have had Fountainpen but Paxovasa might have got it right with that Festival being on, it could have been a Lantern or something they set off.

I posted on my local news site to see if anyone knows .
As its got me baffled .The thing is it was quite large . I found it interesting regarding the festival though ! Trying to find out would they be letting lanterns off in the area , however it was very very large !

Welcome :) to the site - I'm not saying it was, but due to Diwali being celebrated, what you saw may have been a large lantern. I saw 12/13 of these in the sky about 2 months ago - baffled me for days, they appeared so large against the midnight sky. Well spotted still.

I dont think it was a lantern .Hence why i posted .It was pretty big ! When ive googled there seems to be a lot of these sightings over Teesside.
Apart from the fact it was moving too fast and there was no wind .
I see the planes plus the police helicopter all the time it was moving same speed if not faster than a plane.It did not burn out , just dissappeared into the clouds in a northern direction.

I don't mean to belittle what you seen, but it is not just lanterns. They have a light show and fireworks..

To be fair you are right there has been a massive increase in sighting in the last 18 months to 2 years, could be Teesside is a hot spot.

Funnily enough ive googled and there seems to be a lot around Teesside ! Even one on this site around may 11th.
If you google Teesside and other words lke ufo, glowing , burning orange - loads pop up also billingham and middlesbrough which are not too far from me .
Wonder why ? and what it is.

Havnt come across anyone else in teesside that saw anything that night.However on 17th October there are reports of a similar sighting in Ilkley & sheffield at later times described like what i saw .
People report to other sights if you google 17th October you may come across them.
I think a lot of people maybe dont report things in fear of people taking the "Micheal" .
However I know what i saw .Judging by other sightings in England that night some saw the very same thing.
