Further Description of Sighting: I saw the object pass close by the window and went out with my partner to the balcony, it was not moving too fast initially and I had time to get the binoculars.

It seemed to become round the further away it got, it picked up speed and disappeared over the sea. by that stage it looked like a small very dark orange planet.

    Ref: to Jackie`s hot air balloon appearence.
    1/1/2010 .Four of us saw at around 12:30 – 12:45am.In Blackpool.I first spotted an orange ball in south direction Was about quarter the size of moon at the time..At first I thought it was hot air balloon,as seemed to have cone of fire at base of sphere.But then seemed too round in shape to be a balloon and why would anyone be in one at this time and weather.?
    It flickered like a candle but the flame stayed in the ball at the base.Very orb like appearance.It moved slowly to the west and stopped sharply under a star.Couldnt of been firework/lantern or balloon drifting as it stopped so steady.About 10 seconds later it moved again west and was getting smaller or glowing less.
    As it went west it gradually got dimmer but still orange/red.It seemed to go at an upward right angle at the last seconds it faded.It travelled very linear,no wobble [2010|01|5d3f5ce9acee655807084cc280083c8d]
