Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: Ellesmere Port (UK/England), .
Shape: Sphere
Duration:1 minute
Observed a bright round object which appeared to be the size of a football. The object was much lower than the passenger aeroplane which was also visible at the time. There was no sound at all, and at the time absolutely no wind.

I watched the object as it moved steadily across, then it changed direction to north, then seemed to accelerate and curve off westwards towards Ellesmere Port. The object remained intensly bright until out of sight.
