Date of Sighting: 13th April 2009
Time: 3:20am

Witness Statement: I had just given birth to my baby at Salford Royal (Hope Hosp.) I was on the maternity unit, and woke to feed my baby. I looked out of the window which looks over the M602 towards Trafford Park Industrial Estate. I spotted what looked like a flair from a flair gun traveling from the direction of Eccles towards Manchester city centre. It traveled at a continuous speed in a straight line. The moon was full and the sky was clear. I estimated the object to be traveling at the same height and speed as a small aircraft. The object appeared to be a orange glowing circular shape and made no obvious sound.
