Shape: Light
Duration:25 seconds
I have never (as far as I can remember) seen a UFO until about 40 mins ago.

I was lying in bed looking out of the window when all of a sudden a fiery looking light appeared in the sky, it sort of faded in - it faded in to view from being nothing, to a dull light and then gradually getting brighter.

The total fade in took probable 1 second or less, at first I thought it might have been a flair or firework or even a shooting star.

I got up, sat on the edge of the bed next to the window and moved the net curtain back to get a better view.

I watched it for about 10 seconds, it moved in a downward diagonal movement and then curved smoothly in to a horizontal path.

There appeared to be a small red light to the side of it, my initial thought was that the red light was the tail light of a helicopter and the bright light I was seeing was the helicopters search light, it lingered in the sky for a few more seconds and then faded out as quickly as it had faded in.

Within less than one second it faded from an intense bright fiery light to nothing, completely disappeared.
