Location: Warwickshire (UK/England),
Shape: Fireball
Duration:20-30 secs
bright, blurry light fairly low in the sky with absolutely no sound, moving quite quickly in a straight line.

I was out walking my dogs in a nearby playing field. It was dark and cloudy with a few breaks in the cloud. I noticed to my right in the sky, below cloud level a bright red object with a red 'glow' around it, almost like your eyes are watery and blurry when you look at a light at night. . In fact I wiped my eyes to make sure they weren't watery. I stopped dead in my tracks because of its brightness and it appearred low and moving quite quickly.

The light appearred to pulse or flash but only very faintly I did have a thought that it was an aircraft that was actually on fire and dropping. Although aeroplanes do go over where i live they go in a different flight path to this and even helicopters don't follow the route that this light was going. There was hardly any breeze and as it went directly over me i couldn't hear any air craft noise at all it was eerily silent, i was expecting some noise as it was below cloud level (later on in the walk a plane went over and i could clearly hear it and it was well above cloud level). It could'nt even have been a microlight as there was absolutely no sound. It was moving inapproximately south to north direction. In coming flights to Birmingham airport go in a NW to SE direction, helicopters tend to go the opposite direction. It moved very smothly and disappeared as quickly as it appeared i stood and watched it for about 20 to 30 seconds.
