Yellow bright orb object seen over Berkshire, England.

On January 14th at 17:30 in the evening in England, Berkshire.

I saw a bright yellow light in the distance, almost as bright as the moon, but slightly smaller than the moon in size. As I observed, it was moving very strangely, short burst movements, it would move a little bit then stop and move again. It was very low in the sky, about the same height as tree tops.

As I continued to watch, it moved behind a chimney for a few seconds, before it came out at the top of the chimney, revealing itself again. This bright yellow light suddenly became dimmer and kept moving vertically in the sky. Eventually it was so dim it became as bright as a distant star. Shortly after that it just vanished from view. Unfortunately, I was interrupted by a family member at the time it went so, I missed part of the sighting.

However, this all happened in a matter of about 2 minutes roughly I would say. Not seen anything quite like it. Certainly not a plane, I did wonder if it was a helicopter, but it was moving rather strange, plus it left so quickly, which almost rules out a helicopter I think.

I do not believe there was any sound, but I was inside the house looking out of my window. So its hard to say if there was any sound, I certainly don't recall any sound at all.

Very exciting, I was blown away by it.
