Location: Newcastle (UK/England),
Shape: Other
Duration: 3 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
Very large orange flame like craft similar to lantern seen flying low and fast following coastline

Around 1.00 am on New Years day I was walking home with my partner.

In the sky we saw a unexplainable object, the best description I can give is that it was like a lantern.

The 'object' looked like some form of rectangular transparent package with a very large orange flame inside.

It would be logical to think that it was a flaming weather ballon etc or even a comet from my description but I am adement it was something else.

The 'object' was too large and travelling too fast with a very steady precise course (following the coastline) to be anything other than a steered craft.
