Description: I am from a small town called Bude in North Cornwall in the UK. I am emailing to inform you of a UFO seen by myself and two other friends on the 11th August 2013 at around 12.30 AM. The UFO that we saw is very similar to what you described in your sighting. (I googled “red kite shaped UFO” to see whether there had been any other sightings).
We were informed of a meteor shower on the night of the 11th and so spent an hour or two in my garden observing the sky. We saw over 10 shooting stars/meteors and then saw the magnificent yet freaky sight of a UFO. At first we thought we were witnessing a moving satellite, before we realized that the object was far lower than any plane we had ever seen, and was orange in color and almost shaped like a triangular kite. The base was glowing orange and red and it moved slowly in an Easterly direction, making the strangest humming sound we had ever heard!
It’s comforting to know that similar objects have been seen, it has certainly intrigued myself and my friends. I am looking forward to your reply.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
