Further Description of Sighting: The squashed sphere emerged from behind the mountain from the western side of castlewellan. It was a very bright light, golden orange, and i mean bright , in total silence. We reckon it was about 3-4 miles away and traveled towards the east and in a upward direction. it moved quite slowly but smoothly

It then stopped more or less between castlewellan and slieve donard. Then took off south and upwards,at a very fast pace until it disappeared.
About 1 hour later we saw 3 of these at quite a distance away, so i cant really comment much about these.

The whole sighting took about 5 minutes from start to end. The people who saw it, (although a few drinks were taken), were all totally convinced that this was not something that they have seen before. Get in touch if you have seen something similar.
