SIR - On July 4, a friend and I were standing outside the Harpenden Arms, at about midnight. We also saw something very strange in the sky.
It was one single bright orange orb of light. At first, I thought it may have been one of those Chinese lanterns but it moved in a very straight line, right across the horizon. It was going too quickly for a lantern, and it had no flashing lights, so it definitely wasn't any aircraft that I know of, as I believe any aircraft in the sky has to have flashing lights on. My friend was skeptical, and it took a little while for it to sink in that he may have seen a UFO. I'm not so sceptical, as 15 years ago I saw a huge triangle in the sky in Dunstable. And last June I filmed two strange lights in Harpenden that just disappeared (not a trait I've seen many planes do).
Keep your eyes on the skies, and if you do, use infrared cameras, you'll have a much better chance of seeing strange things!
