PULSATING, the orb's colour changed from orange to red, hovering overhead somewhere above in the twilight transition between day and night, far brighter than any star.

For one pair of astonished onlookers who saw this strange spectacle while clearing up from a family barbecue, it was not the first time. And now the Hemsby couple are hoping others who have seen similar sights will step forward and help them try to piece together the mysteries of the sky.

Noel and Elaine Galer were in their back garden when they witnessed the overhead spectacle on Sunday, having seen something similar outside Caister High School last year.

Noel, 54 and chairman of the Hemsby Allotment Association, said: “My back garden faces west and what I saw followed a straight line from roughly south to north and maintained a constant height. It was like a fireball, and the intensity of the light fluctuated as it moved.

“I have seen aircraft afterburners and more to the point heard them too. I've seen hot air balloons, lightning in a rainforest and even meteorites, this was none of those.”

As it followed other similar reports in The Mercury, Noel has decided that something needs to be done to bring together eyewitnesses and those interested in the topic.

He said: “Whatever I saw was real and I want to join with others to help get together as there seems to be a lot of it about around here.

“I would be happy to discuss it - you need sceptics too, and it's not about getting carried away, but corroborating things.”

He also has ideas on how the group can go about doing what so many others have failed to.

Having run an IT company named Abasys with Elaine for more than 15 years, Paul thinks he has the knowledge and contacts to help them get ahead.

One of his ideas is an instant SMS service between members when a sighting is made, so the like-minded people can corroborate their positions, and what it is they are witnessing.

He is also keen that modern CCTV technology which he has worked on, which starts recording when there is a sudden movement, could be used.

Noel, who believes what he sees is an example of unidentified natural phenomenon, rather than alien spacecraft, added: “It sounds insane, but a friend even suggested that we could get a radio control mobile plane with a camera on it to take a closer look. It's all about pooling talent and ideas together.”

And his wife backs him all the way. Elaine said: “I think it's a brilliant idea. It would be nice to compare notes, and these sightings seem to be much more frequent than we are led to believe.”
