From email to friend "About 23.00 we set out last night. Along the way I noticed a yellow/orange ball in the sky. It was about the size of a pea I guess, maybe about a fifth the size of the moon from our vantage point. The sky had a slight overall cloud cover and this thing was I think just at above the level of the clouds. Although you could not see any actual clouds just a faint blanket cover, enough to mask out the stars. It kind of floated a bit like it was in water and moved along the sky. It then did very slight zig zag movements as it traveled but didnít stop to turn. The change of movement was straight away. There was no noise at all and I watched it travel across the sky. I tried to see a shape around but this was really difficult. All we could see was the actual coloured light. It then started to fade, I imagined as it ascended up and the cloud got thicker Was really strange. I donít have a clue what it was but I know for sure it was not a plane. If it was a helicopter it was silent and I have not seen one with a large static coloured light"
