IN YOUR OWN WORDS, DESCRIBE WHAT HAPPENED.

Saturday 15th August, very warm, clear, calm night, about 10pm, a round orange uap extremely high up in the stars, slowly made manouver west to east then turned north, it was on a straight path then zigzagging for longer than the straight path, it did a right turn and then a fluid straight into a right curve towards a star, stopped by the star to its North and remained for until we got bored, maybe 20 minutes or more. We're near to Altmore Forest/Cabragh in Co. Tyrone. Sorry no photos it was way too high and dark for our mobiles to capture.

Investigator Comments

Not so easily explained and is the sort of thing those on a watch night should watch for. There is no indication of any sound being made by the object by the witness, so we can't rule out a helicopter at this stage. An interesting sighting though! Hynek Classification:

Nocturnal Light
