Location of Sighting: County Durham A688 between Bishop Auckland and Spennymoor
Date of Sighting: 30/12/2009
Time: 6:13am

Witness Statement: I was driving towards Spennymoor this morning and had passed Bishop Auckland, and was passed the Park Head hotel, up hte hill, almost to the Petrol Station (on the right) when the whole valley on my left lit up in a huge semi-circle arc shape, with a huge bright light...(to be honest, expected a huge explosion after it, but nothing happened, except for me being terrified )
