Cheshunt couple left stunned after UFO encounter
13:42 12 May 2010
A CHESHUNT couple were left “stunned” after a close encounter with a UFO in the town.
An eyewitness known only as Brandon was walking from Cheshunt railway station with his girlfriend at 10.50pm on May 5 when they sighted the “very bright red/orange” unidentified flying object aglow in the sky above.
He wrote on a UFO watchers’ website: “It definitely wasn’t a plane or helicopter and we have no RAF bases around here. Its movement didn’t suggest that it was a lantern either. It was gliding along and we watched it for a couple of minutes until it suddenly just faded away as if it had shot straight up within seconds until it was completely gone.”
He added: “We both witnessed it and were literally stood in the street quite stunned, and it was really bright so I wouldn’t be surprised if more people saw this.”
Another contributor to the website replied to Brandon’s post, adding: “Saw something similar in Glenrothes, Fife, Scotland on Sunday
9th May 2010. It was just as you describe but seemed to fizzle out or go behind cloud.
“I could not hear any noise either could my sister. Quite Odd.”
